MUCA opens Damien Hirst exhibition in Munich

The wait is over: on 26.10.2023, the MUCA will open the big Damien Hirst Overview exhibition "The Weight of Things. In the solo show, some of the British artist's most iconic works will be presented in Germany for the first time.

The exhibition includes over 40 works from across Hirst's career, including works from the series Natural History (Formaldehyde sculptures), Spin Paintings, Medicine Cabinets and Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable.

For the Love of God (2007), Damien Hirst's famous platinum cast of a human skull set with 8,601 diamonds, is one of the iconic artworks on display. Since its debut in 2007, For the Love of God has become one of the most recognisable works of contemporary art. This work will be on display until 28 January 2024.

On the outside of the MUCA you can see the sculpture Legend (2011) in front of the museum and a Spot Painting by Hirst on the museum's giant wall.
