Hyperrealism 1967-2013

In the late nineteen-sixties, a group of artists made a name for themselves in the United States by using photography as a basis for painting everyday scenes and objects with extraordinary realism. They gelled into what became known as the Hyperrealist movement, which took flight at the 1972 Kassel Documenta and remains airborne today.

Organized by the German cultural exchange agency Institut für Kulturaustausch and curated by the agency’s director Otto Letze, this retrospective features 68 works from a number of museums and private collections. The Tubinga Kunsthalle in Germany was the first venue on the exhibition’s European tour, which also includes the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid and the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, where it had a most successful showing last year.
