until 10.04. | #2905ARTatBerlin | Salongalerie Die Möwe shows from 14th November 2020 the exhibition “From Brass to Ziegler” with works by artists from the Forgotten Generation.
The new exhibition “From Brass to Ziegler” in the Salongalerie Die Möwe (The Seagull) broadens the view to an entire generation, which has been at the centre of the gallery’s work since the founding of the “Möwe”: artists whose work has long been unjustly forgotten. The paintings, watercolours, drawings and sculptures from the first half of the 20th century not only captivate through their individual mastery, but also demonstrate in their diversity the creative contribution with which these artists enriched the various art movements in Germany.
Many of them belonged to groups that had been searching for a new form of artistic expression since 1900; they were members of the Novembergruppe, founded in 1919, studied at the avant-garde Bauhaus or exhibited in Herwarth Walden’s legendary Sturm-Galerie. The National Socialists defamed their art as “degenerate” and removed it from museums and galleries. Some artists left Germany, others went into internal emigration, the war destroyed studios and livelihoods.

In the 1980s the rediscovery of the Forgotten Generation began. Since then, the power, freshness and originality of their art has been moving more and more into the public consciousness and is the focus of our exhibition.
