until (to follow) | #3307ARTatBerlin | Galerie Michael Haas shows from 28th January 2022 the first solo exhibition by the Berlin artist Joachim Gutsche with oil paintings from the 1960s.

In the works of the 1960s, Joachim Gutsche (1926-2012) juggles between abstraction and figuration. The claustrophobic, dense, explosively colourful pictorial spaces, eyes torn apart, bodies torn to shreds, pick up on the artist’s personal strokes of fate, especially his imprisonment in a GDR labour camp from 1954 to 1956. The unifying, even “protective” element in the years that followed remained painting for him. Thus he writes in 1974:

„(…) Material-conscious – or would you prefer to be absorbed in the material while you are still alive? Be one with it? To submerge oneself in it? Or perhaps only as a protective wall with it against the individual desires or attacks of others?“

His multi-faceted paintings can without question be situated in the artistic developments of the 1960s and 70s – in the turn towards the abstract-gestural and the childlike-figurative elements especially with the groups SPUR and CoBrA.
