To mark the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s Protestant Reformation, a comprehensive solo exhibition by renowned American media artist Bill Viola (b. 1951) will take place at contemporary museum Deichtorhallen Hamburg, June through September 2017. Featured are 13 large-scale video installations from 1991 to the present, some more than 30 feet high. Viola has long explored core themes of human life—birth, emotion, spirituality, love and death with a particular interest in the mystical traditions of Christianity, Zen Buddhism and Islam. His works convey the experience of the sublime and the spiritual in the global language of the 21st century, encouraging the viewer to reflect on the fundamental questions of life and one’s own existence. Documenting this monumental show is the extensively illustrated catalog featuring 80 full-color plates along with essays by Bill Viola, Dirk Luckow, Dorothee Böhm and Wulf Herzogenrath. A few past exhibitions include Grand Palais, Paris; MoMA, NY; the American Pavilion, 46th Venice Biennale; and the Palazzo Strozzi, Florence.
