Book Launch Bruno Taut

In the light of our current November Group exhibition, the German Werkbund Berlin presented the newly published book “Bruno Taut. Visionär und Weltbürger” at our gallery. Members of the revolutionary November Group did not only include painters, sculptors, composers and authors, but also architects such as Bruno Taut. All of them wanted to shape the young republic both artistically and socially. 

The authors of the book Jenny Schily, Edzard Reuter, Thomas Flierl, Uli Hellweg and Unda Hörner spoke about their connection to Bruno Taut and his work.


New Year’s Reception with Film Screening about Renée Sintenis

For over 30 years, the voice of the Berlin Bear was heard again for the first time on January 10, 2018. On the occasion of the finissage of our exhibition “Coat · Feather · Fin” and for welcoming the new gallery year we showed a long time forgotten 16mm documentary out of the archive from the former “Landes-Film-Dienst Berlin-Brandenburg” about the famous sculptress Renée Sintenis. Every year filmmakers are honoured with her bear-sculpture at the Berlinale Festival.
We thank Dr. Axel Roch, lecturer at the Art University Weißensee, for the screening of this historic film document which gives a vivid impression of the artistic work of Sintenis in image and sound.


Artist Talk with Hanspeter Münch

We would like to thank the artist Hanspeter Münch for his spirited remarks and insights into his art. Through the use of colour, transparency and light, his paintings strikingly convey a special energy to the viewer. The internationally renowned artist, who lives in Karlsruhe, creates this energy by applying various delicate layers of colours. We are delighted to be able to exhibit two of his most recent works, which arose from his stay in India. The traditional Saris inspired him to create a series of paintings with atmospheric colour plays.

Soirée about the artist Herbert Behrens-Hangeler

To our soirée we welcomed about 80 visitors in our gallery. It was a great pleasure for us to share our enthusiasm about the artist Herbert Behrens-Hangeler with others. 

The discussion and the documentary film “Fluchtburg Fredersdorf” by Ursula and Günter Feist, broadcasted in 1995 by the SFB, recalled the artist’s personality, life and work.
Our special thanks goes to the family of Behrens-Hangeler, his former students, the art historian Dr. Sibylle Badstübner-Gröger and the literary scholar Paul Werner Wagner – they all made the evening an outstanding and emotional experience.

Salon evening “Purpurgedanken” - reading out of Erwin Hahs’s diaries

During yesterday’s salon evening we got to know how rich in events and conflicts an artist’s life could be. Since our current exhibition shows paintings of Erwin Hahs (1887 – 1970), Lutz Harder read parts of the painter’s and graphic artist’s diaries. The actor starts with the 1910s and goes on until the mid 1950s so that family and history of the past come to life. Jazz musician Rolf von Nordenskjöld accompanied the reading musically with his own compositions.
