The Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art (TMCA) announced on Saturday that it plans to showcase works by German sculptor and op artist Gunther Uecker in an exhibition, which will open on September 16. 

Uecker is believed to be one of the most famous German artists since World War II, TMCA said in a press release.

Uecker’s oeuvre includes paintings, object arts and installations as well as stage designs and films. He is mostly interested in the eastern European avant-garde of the 1920s and 1930s, but he is likewise fascinated by Asian cultures and their ideas. 

His works can be seen in collections and at large fairs in both the West and the East. Uecker’s artistic creativity reached a climax in 2000 with the prayer room he designed for the rebuilt Reichstag building in Berlin.

Iranian artist Mehdi Rahimi has designed a poster for Uecker’s Tehran exhibit, which will be running until November 1.
