Neue/alte Heimat : R/emigration von Künstlerinnen und Künstlern nach 1945 = New/old homeland : r/emigration of artists after 1945 / herausgegeben von Dorothea Schöne.

Publication | Library Call Number: N6868 .N48 2017

Kunsthaus Dahlem presents the group exhibition 'New/Old Homeland. Artists R/emigration after 1945' with appr. 50 works by 15 artists. 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 honours 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.00Exhibition: Kunsthaus Dahlem, Berlin, Germany (30.06.2017-17.06.2018).
