Edvard Munch. Fear

At a glance

Norwegian-born painter Edvard Munch is one of the most important pioneers of modern painting in Europe. Munch registered the intensity of an entire period much as a seismograph, expressing it through his emotionally charged paintings. Angst – a key pictorial theme in his works – was ever present.
The exhibition explores this existential theme in the artist’s work and combines it with contemporary stances from August 10 to November 2 2025. A ‘Pavilion of Angst’ directly related to the exhibition will be created with the aim of seeking dialogue on the topic with passers-by in urban space. With this discursive exhibition project, the Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz intends to draw analogies between historical approaches and our present day. At the same time, an attempt will be made to discuss Angst as an existential, global and also very personal topic.
