Kunstforum Wien - Man Ray

A selection of 150 keyworks of Man Ray (born as Emmanuel Radnitzky in 1890 in Philadelphia, died in 1976 in Paris) from all over the world, including painting, photography, objects, works on paper, collages and assemblages and experimental film, will help to map the outline of an enigmatic and complex artist personality who paved the way for modern and contemporary art, and – in congenial artistic complicity with Marcel Duchamp – laid groundwork for how and what we see as “art” today.
