While the retrospective assembled 90 representative works from the last 30 years of the artists career, the strength of the exhibition lay not only in the art displayed, but also in the location: the Haus der Kunst, built on Hitlers orders in 1933, was used to exhibit German art by and for the people and quickly became a center of cultural propaganda for the Nazi regime. In this space, Tuymans works, often concerned with power relations and twentieth-century history, were grouped into islands of meaning to create a narrative that would resonate with the museum, and Tuymans further conceived of a site-specific mural. In this volume, Tuymans himself guides the reader through the exhibition and offers new perspective on his works relations both to each other and to the installation space. The book includes an ex-libris bookplate signed by Tuymans. Limited quantity available
