The 34 selected artists from Germany, Austria, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, the Netherlands, the USA and Great Britain address all the topics that move the world. The banality of evil. The simultaneously criminal and distinguished nature of power. The smooth surfaces of desire. The shady deals and amoral networks. By doing so, they show how the perpetrators merge with their abysmal deeds.

In the fall of 2012, the highly acclaimed exhibition Black Romanticism: From Goya to Max Ernst at the Städel Museum in Frankfurt/Main explored the darker aspects of human existence through the obscure side of romanticism and its continuation in symbolism and surrealism. The concept of New Black Romanticism is the attempt to look at contemporary artistic trends between progressive dark wave strategies of obfuscation.
The exhibition is curated by Christoph Tannert; Curatorial Assistant: Miriam Barnitz
The film programme in the exhibition is curated by Robert Seidel
