André Butzer at YUZ Museum, Shanghai


Yuz Museum Shanghai is pleased to present LIGHT, COLOUR AND HOPE, the first institutional solo exhibition in China of German painter ANDRÉ BUTZER, born in Stuttgart in 1973. Butzer’s paintings linger between dream and reality. His recollection of German history, resonances of Friedrich Hölderlin’s poems as well as references to Walt Disney enable him to envision an enduring life under the auspices of human existence and community. Even though light-hearted figures appear repeatedly throughout his œuvre, the aura of life and the crisis wrought by modernity echo in his paintings.
