The Raussmüller Collection exhibits “Flour Arrangements” (1966) by Bruce Nauman at Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt. The work, that recently has been exhibited at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris as ground-breaking innovation in artistic use of photographic techniques, will enter into dialogue with works by Alberto Giacometti. The exhibition Giacometti-Nauman in Frankfurt sets out to highlight common ground in the work of these two outstanding artists of the 20th century.

Bruce Nauman’s first art work using photography, “Flour Arrangements,” from 1966, initiates a far reaching change in the artistic use of photographic techniques. The artist, who influenced generations of fellow artists until today, uses the medium no longer to represent an existing reality. With the present work, he makes photography an accomplice in an extensive artistic process. Instead of a mere form of representation, the medium becomes a wide field of experimentation of artistic practice.
The Raussmüller Collection is showing the exemplary “Flour Arrangements” from March 25 to July 17 in the exhibition “La Boîte de Pandore: Une autre photographie par Jan Dibbets” at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.
