Expansion of the Combat Zone. 1968-2000. The Collection Part 3
After the exhibitions 'Modern Times' (1900-1945) and 'Divided Heaven' (1945-1968), the Neue Nationalgalerie turns its attention to the years from 1968 to 2000. The leitmotif for the new collection display is provided by the title of Michel Houellebecq's novel 'Extension du domaine de la lutte'. In this novel from the mid-1990s, the French author captured the zeitgeist of a generation that was shaped by the pursuits of capitalism and which saw its entire existence as a combat zone, waged on shifting fronts.
