Major retrospective of artist Gustav Metzger

Posted on May 18, 2009

Born in Nuremberg, Germany in 1926 to Polish-Jewish parents, Gustav Metzger was evacuated to England with his brother Max/Mendel as part of the Kindertransport in 1939. This overview presented by the Serpentine Gallery represents the influential artist and activist Gustav Metzger’s life-long exploration of politics, ecology and the destructive powers of 20th-century industrialised societies. Destruction, creation and transformation lie at the heart of much of Metzgerā€™s art.
