Project Detail

Focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, the exhibition entitled And Now the Good News brings together a comprehensive selection of works from the Annette and Peter Nobel Collection. Curated by Christoph Doswald, the exhibition traces the history of modern art while discussing the most critical issues in science, culture, and politics in the last 150 years. Featuring around 300 works by 164 artists who have used a variety of media such as painting, photography, collage, drawing, installation, and video, the exhibition displays the most important periods of modern and contemporary art.

Taking the newspaper as an intellectual starting point, And Now the Good News focuses on the relationship between text and news, the ways in which the invention of photography shaped society, and the powerful effect totalitarian systems have on mass media. The exhibition highlights turning points such as the peace movement following World War II, the relationship between media industries and consumer culture, and the critical media discourse that emerged in arts in the wake of globalization. It also depicts the transformation of concepts such as gender, religion, and ethnicity in art and media, as well as the development of social media society.
