Tue, 2017-04-11 10:05

Wie aber reflektierten die Künstler im kritischen Blick nach innen ihr Selbstverständnis und ihr Verhältnis zur vorgeschriebenen staatstragenden Funktion? Die Ausstellung "Hinter der Maske. Künstler in der DDR" widmet sich den Spielarten künstlerischer Selbstinszenierung in der DDR zwischen Rollenbild und Rückzug, verordnetem Kollektivismus und schöpferischer Individualität.
