The art of Albert Oehlen challenges the medium of painting, and our understanding of it. The theory and education program of his exhibition An Old Painting in Spirit seeks to challenge the format of the guided tour, which has been declared dead and undying at once in a similar way to painting. Thus we will talk while taking a walk with the artist, a number of special guests, our education team and – last but not least – our visitors.

Albert Oehlen (born 1954 in Krefeld, Germany), lives and works in Bühler, Switzerland.
