Jean Tinguely
Everything moves!

Oct. 10, 2007 – Jan. 27, 2008 Deze tentoonstelling is afgelopen
In the autumn of 2007, the Kunsthal Rotterdam will be presenting a major retrospective of Jean Tinguely (1925-1991) for the first time in forty years.

Tinguely is one of the icons of modern art and world‑renowned for his moving sculptures of rusty iron and waste material that work as machines but serve no useful purpose.

Since the 1950s, his grinding, squeaking, spouting and banging oeuvre has created an indelible impression in the art world and particularly outside it. Tinguely’s large, rattling machines and colourful objects are vital and cheerful, as well as being poetic and sometimes ironic.

This is art that will surprise and bring a smile to everyone’s face, especially children, simply because everything moves!
