Weserburg | Museum für Moderne Kunst I Prefer Life Mir ist das Leben lieber

The publication I Prefer Life brings together more than 100 pictures, sculptures and video works that investigate in a quite sensual and convincingly provocative manner issues of identity, the assignment of social roles, and also existential areas such as life and death. Highlights and previously undisplayed works from the Reydan Weiss Collection will be presented. In addition to renowned artists such as Cindy Sherman, Nathalie Djurberg, Bettina Rheims as well as Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer and Robert Longo, the book presents many surprising new works, including African, Oceanic, Chinese, Japanese, Latin American and Caribbean positions.
The handling and enduring of cultural and individual differences, of tradition and modernism is a fundamental theme. Examples of this are changing photographic identities of Cindy Sherman, exceedingly strange shapes by Charles Fréger, and the not only initially threatening figure of Mircea Suciu concealed in a burka. But also issues such as life and death, beauty and old-age resonate in a convincing manner in many of the works on display.
