Curated by Francesco Bonami, “Jörg Immendorff: Ichich, Ichihr, Ichwir, We All Have to Die” is the first major exhibition of the late artist’s work in an Italian institution. While this exhibition is not a retrospective, it is the first to uniquely address Immendorff’s inquiry into the artist’s identity and his participation within his own paintings. Jörg Immendorff (1945-2007) was one of the most important artists to emerge from post-war Germany. His work has been exhibited internationally since the mid-1960s. Most recently, the major retrospective “Jörg Immendorff: For All Beloved in the World” opened at Haus der Kunst, Munich and will travel to Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid in 2019. Immendorff lived and worked in Düsseldorf and Hamburg until his death in 2007.
