Museum Frieder Burda: JR

1 March to 29 June 2014

The French artist JR (*1983) is one of the most innovative representatives of contemporary art on the international scene. He lives and works in Paris, whereby he consciously keeps his true identity a secret. He applies his oversized black-and-white photographs in the form of monumental posters to buildings, stairways, and walls worldwide. JR thus works in a wide variety of places and in different cultural and historical contexts.
