Wallraf-Richartz-Museum & Fondation Corboud

Hanns Zischler (*18 June 1947) is an actor, writer and photographer. Because of his love for the visual arts the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum invited him to curate an exhibition in autumn 2022. Zischler has accepted this invitation with pleasure and says of his project: “The magic and the power, yes violence that are illustrated in the artistic representation of reading and writing form a very particular genre. Going through the prints and drawings cabinet I was searching for striking examples of the diverse motifs – intimate, private, religious and political.” Which works Hanns Zischler chose and how he will present them will be revealed by the Wallraf from the 23 September 2022.
