Two artists, one theme - when Wolf Vostell and Boris Lurie met in the 1960s, they were soon connected by more than a deep friendship. Both took a political stand with their art, both dealt with the unimaginable horrors of the Holocaust, both opposed war, cruelty and crimes against humanity with all their might.

Their raw works defy easy consumerism, which seemed to them anathema to the art establishment. Today, the works of the two artists seem more topical than ever, relying on a kind of shock therapy to draw the public's attention to the continuity of violence and contempt for humanity.

The tactile tour invites visitors to a dialogical tour of the exhibition. The joint tour offers time for an intensive examination of selected artworks by the two artists and questions from the participants. Detailed descriptions of the works are supported by tactile models and material samples. After the tour, there will be the opportunity to discuss the exhibition with Dorothea Schöne (Artistic Director Kunsthaus Dahlem) over a drink.
