This solo exhibition features some 70 works that make up nearly the entirety of the works young Baselitz developed in his late twenties between 1965 and 1966. It is the first time that these paintings making up the pivotal series titled “Heroes” or “New Types” are brought together. This series is considered to be a kind of manifesto for the artist and a milestone in the history of contemporary art.

The exhibition has been coordinated by the Städel Museum in Frankfurt in collaboration with the Azienda Speciale Palaexpo Roma, Moderna Museet Stockholm, Museo Guggenheim Bilbao.
