With his life-size and true to nature sculptures, the name of the American artist Duane Hanson has become a synonym for contemporary realism in art. His motifs exclusively focus on the typical average person of the American lower and middle classes, perfectly sculptured illusions, which blur the border between real "art world" and artificial "real world".

The exhibition comprised 31 works with 37 single figures.
