The Surprised Masks: James Ensor

Ghosts, skulls, skeletons and other macabre forms characterise the work of James Ensor. His works are bizarre, ironic, sometimes aggressive and provocative, but always underpinned by profound humour. In the early 20th century, artists including Alfred Kubin, Paul Klee and the German Expressionists Emil Nolde and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner were inspired by his creative force and radical rejection of the ideal of beauty in European art history.

Play objects - The Art of Possibilities

The transformable "play object", which has also been described in art history as an "object of variation" or a "participative object", experienced its heyday, in the area of concrete-constructive and kinetic art in particular, at the end of the 1960s. The aim of the artists is to get the beholder directly involved in creating and transforming their art objects in different ways. This turns the audience into a direct player between artist and artwork.Museum Tinguely offers the unique opportunity to experience many of the works in all their variability at first hand within a comprehensive program of more than 300 interactive public tours.
