An exhibition of 20th century art rooted in the grotesquely comical tradition is on at Frankfurt's Schirn Kunsthalle. The exhibition -- which also explores the relationship between cabaret and the rise of the fine arts in Germany, Austria and Switzerland -- moves between the grotesquely comic aesthetics of classic Bavarian comedian Karl Valentin to works from the Dada movement and contemporary artists like Sigmar Polke, Thomas Schütte, Christian Jankowski and John Bock.

Until June 9, Sunday and Tuesday 11 a.m. - 7 p.m., Wednesday and Saturday 11 a.m. - 10 p.m., closed Mondays.

The Rise of Empire

In an exhibition at the Museum of Art History in Vienna, portraits, tapestries, insignias and other art from the reign of Emperor Ferdinand I are on show. Entitled "The Rise of the Habsburg Monarchy," the exhibition takes a look at the emergence of the Habsburg empire as well as developments in art, science and politics under Ferdinand I's reign. Over 450 exhibits, from armaments of the era to large paintings, are on show.
