until 16.01. | #0241ARTatBerlin | The official opening of our new spaces on Berlin’s Galleries Mile at Auguststraße 50b, will take place with the exhibition “Im Schatten”, presenting works of mostly-forgotten artists of the classical Modern era.
Following the disillusioning experiences of the Great War and the outcomes of the November revolution, numerous associations of artists, with revolutionary perspectives on art and society, were founded in Germany. From these groups emerged famous painters, many of whom have been forgotten. Among them were Dorothea Maetzel-Johannsen, co-founder of the Hamburg Secession, Curt Ehrhardt, member of the Berlin November group, Curt Lahs of the Young Rhineland group and Albert Mueller, co-founder of the Stuttgart group, Üecht. Together with others in the exhibition they provide an insight into the variety of forms of artistic expression in tumultuous times.
Altogether the exhibition presents works of eleven artists, besides the already mentioned also pictures from Herbert Behrens-Hangeler, Oskar Fischer, Paul Grunwaldt, Erwin Hahs, Jeanne Mammen, Margarethe Moll and Heinrich Wildemann.
