The Lindau Art Museum is dedicating its special exhibition in 2024 to
Christo and Jeanne-Claude – A life for art. From 13 April to 13 October 2024, the museum will provide insights into the creations and life’s work of the artist couple with editions, drawings, collages and objects.

The artist couple Christo and Jeanne-Claude

Christo and Jeanne-Claude were both born on 13 June 1935, Christo in Bulgaria and Jeanne-Claude in Morocco. Their paths crossed for the first time in 1958 in Paris, where they finally came together as a couple. The couple designed and realised their projects together from the 1960s onwards, including the installation “The Gates” in New York’s Central Park (1979-2005), “The Floating Piers” on Lake Iseo in Italy (2014-16) and the wrapping of the Reichstag in Berlin (1971-95). With the wrapping of the Reichstag in Berlin, the artist couple gained fame in Germany. Their monumental projects became temporary pilgrimage sites all over the world. After Jeanne-Claude’s death in 2009, Christo continued his artistic work alone until his death in 2020.

Voice about the exhibition

Head of the Cultural Department Alexander Warmbrunn

“Christo and Jeanne-Claude are probably the most famous couple in contemporary art. Their work cannot be standardised and goes far beyond the well-known wrapping campaigns – our exhibition tells the story of this extraordinary couple who have merged into one artistic personality.”

Voice about the exhibition

Mayoress Dr Claudia Alfons

“I am pleased that we have succeeded in organising such a promising special exhibition in our interim museum in the old post office building this year, before we can present our future special exhibitions in the Cavazzen in a fantastic setting.”
