About the product

This catalogue has been published on the occasion of the exhibition “BEHOLD the MAN” — an exhibition by Kunstmuseum Magdeburg on the occasion of the 100th German Katholikentag 2016 and the Reformation
jubilee in 2017.

The publication looks at contemporary artists’ views of human beings in our time. In the course of several chapters, dedicated to different aspects of being, people’s sensitivities, the unspeakable, the unutterable of their existence and their actions will be shown by means of photography, painting, sculpture, videos and installations.

There are images of ourselves that we do not like to look at; there are those that we see again and again and that insert themselves into human lives from birth to death. These are images that are emotional and moving, that accuse and reconcile, that keep asking the same question: what makes us human?
