Günter Brus. Disclosure

A Retrospective from the Collection of the THP Private Foundation


Curated by: Roman Grabner

About the exhibition

Under the title “Disclosure”, what is probably in terms of its scope and quality the most outstanding private collection of Günter Brus’ work is now presented for the first time. Over the past few decades, the THP Private Foundation has built up an extensive collection of the artist’s work. This ranges from one of his first watercolours from the late 1950s through to the latest works during the Corona lockdown of 2020. Behind the initials THP is the name of a man who has been collecting since his youth and has developed a passion for the unusual, the fragmentary, the sketched. With his open and meticulous approach, he has assembled major works from all of the artist’s creative periods, so allowing a retrospective without gaps. Many of the works have in recent years appeared as loans at key exhibitions on the life and work of Brus.

The BRUSEUM exhibition now comprehensively presents this important private collection to the public for the first time. Brus has always described his exhibitions at galleries or museums – for which he has since 1975 also created his own invitation designs – as “disclosures”, or showings. With the showing of the THP Private Foundation Collection, the BRUSEUM is not only delighted to be able to display this unique private collection, but also to present a retrospective exhibition of the artist’s work for the first time in ten years.
