#GeorgBaselitz 'A Focus on the 1980s' is on view in our London gallery until 21 November.
It is the first exhibition to focus solely on his work from the 1980s - the decade that saw the artist propelled to international fame, garner widespread critical acclaim and, at times, scandalise the art world.
Listen to #SamKeller , director of @fondationbeyeler , speak about the contemporary importance of this decade in the context of Baselitz's career and that of other artists of the time including #JulianSchnabel and #JeanMichelBasquiat .
'After more than a quarter of a century, this work still has its power, its energy, and maybe we even understand it better now'.
