This exhibition reveals the links between populist political strategies and contemporary art. Populism has become prevalent in politics in several European countries. How is the art world reacting to these developments? The exhibition demonstrates how populist politics has borrowed its strategies from artistic practices and vice versa - from Joseph Beuys to the present.
