Rebellious, provocative, and polarizing, the oeuvre associated with the name Kienholz has always caused quite a stir since its beginnings in the mid-1950s, first the works by Edward Kienholz (1927–1994) alone, then later, from 1972 on, the collaborative projects with his wife, Nancy Reddin Kienholz. This is hardly astonishing, since religion, war, death, sex, and the more inscrutable sides of society and its social conflicts have always been at the center of their work. The Schirn’s exhibition offers a complex overview of the essence of their oeuvre, from the early small-format three-dimensional works by way of conceptual works to tableaux that fill an entire room.
