Ugo Dossi's large-format and colorful tableaus, sculptures, projections, and virtual realities (VR) revolve around signs that point to the world as well as signify "world". The exhibition "Signs and Wonders" conceptually spans from archetypal images from the collective memory of early high cultures to a virtual future in the Metaverse. The works create visual puzzles of particular beauty with their reduced symbolic and visual language.

Many of the works are influenced by Dossi's fascination with ancient Egyptian art. The exhibition is thus a perfect complement to visiting our popular collection presentation Egypt - Land of Immortality and provides a contemporary perspective. A small selection of his works will also be shown alongside the original ancient Egyptian pieces at the Museum of World Cultures.

Ugo Dossi (born 1943) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and at the Accademia di Brera in Milan. He lives and works in Munich, Murnau, and in his studio in the Italian Dolomites. His works have been exhibited twice at Documenta, twice at the Venice Biennale, and in numerous international museums.
