The featured artist was Austrian comics artist, Uli Lust. This exhibition is not recommended for families or for anyone under 21 due to explicit sexual illustrations, some of which this world traveler believes to be repulsive, vulgar and in poor humor.

A little know museum between the Kunst museum on the way to the Gegenwartskunst. The museum is deceptively Lange and this exhibition is very well curated. Reading information is in English, German and French and gives a good overview of Peter Gut who turns out...More
