Artist’s R/emigration after 1945Fri Jun 30th 2017 to Sun Jun 17th 2018
BerlinBerlin https://www.myguideberlin.com/events/new-old-homeland BOOK NOW
In the exhibition, various topics and issues are being addressed: Emigrant artists, who were unable to return to Germany after WWII; exiled artists whose reception and recognition in Germany after 1945 was stalled and/or delayed; and those whose return was welcomed and supported. Finally, the exhibition honors artists, who went into so-called “inner emigration” – withdrawing themselves from the art world during the Nazi dictatorship.
The exhibition showcases mainly sculpture but also includes paintings, works on paper, books, and photography. It will reveal the influences and impacts of exile on artistic practice and the connections to international modernity, as well as the impact of the new political context after the return to postwar Germany. Renowned artists, such as Theo Balden and Rudolf Belling, will be presented side by side with names who are unjustly forgotten, such as Jussuf Abbo, Peter Rosenbaum or Margarete Klopfleisch. Due to the current political situation, the exhibition has both a historical as well as a contemporary relevance.
Artists in the exhibition:
Jussuf Abbo, Theo Balden, Rudolf Belling, Erich Buchholz, Richard Engelmann, Paul Hamann, Eugen Hoffmann, Margarete Klopfleisch, Moissey Kogan, Will Lammert, Max Lingner, Emy Roeder, Peter Rosenbaum, Tisa von Schulenburg, Hugo Steiner-Prag, Christian Theunert.
