The salon gallery "Die Möwe" presents modern art of the 20th century. The focus lies on artists whose creative work, due to historical events, has largely been unjustly overlooked. In addition to its shows, the gallery arranges salon evenings to acquaint visitors with the lives and works of selected artists. These evenings feature a mix of various genres.
Many painters, graphic artists and sculptors, who are shown in the gallery, were members of avant-garde artists’ associations like the legendary Storm Circle, initiated by Herwarth Walden, the November Group and the Bauhaus. The gallery focuses on the rediscovery of these outstanding and influental artists.
With our exhibition about the artist Fritz Kuhr we are commemorating the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar 100 years ago. Kuhr was a student and a teacher at this influential school of art and design from 1924 to 1930. We invite you to the opening on 7 March 2019 at 6 p.m. The laudatory speech is given by Professor Philipp Oswalt.
