Nothing might have evolved so much as the representation of the human form over the course of the last centuries. The human ideal has transformed from an original idealisation of man or the Kouro, to the search for absolute realism and exact proportions. In the 20th century, the idea changed again into a concept of the form, the simplification of the lines and a drastic change of dimensionality. From antique sculpture, to works by Alberto Giacometti, Pablo Picasso and Robert Combas, this exhibition showcases the different shapes and forms that human representation has taken in the course of the last centuries.
