Opening „KATJA MEIROWSKY – Back to the City“

Yesterday we welcomed a large circle of interested and enthusiastic art lovers to the opening of our exhibition "KATJA MEIROWSKY - Back to the City".
Paintings and works on paper by Katja Meirowsky, spanning chronologically and thematically from the early post-war years in Berlin to her long stay on the island of Ibiza, are the focus of the presentation. In addition, the exhibition with paintings and sculptures recalls the lifelong close friendship between the artist and two leading representatives of German post-war art: the painter and graphic artist Heinz Trökes and the sculptor Waldemar Grzimek.
In his laudation, the musicologist and director of the Trökes Archive, Manuel Trökes, paid tribute to the rediscovery of Katja Meirowsky's art. He recounted his personal encounters with Katja Meirowsky and, referring to letters written by his father Heinz Trökes, told of his parents' friendship with the artist, near whom the family lived on Ibiza from the 1950s onwards. These lively and authentic narratives brought the artist's personality closer to everyone and appreciated her extensive artistic œuvre in a special way.
We sincerely thank the custodians of the respective artists' estates. Without their support, the exhibition could not have been realised in this form.

Opening "Hamburger Sezessionisten"

Yesterday we opened our exhibition "Hamburg Secessionists". After a two-year break due to Corona, we were once again able to invite you to an evening vernissage with a laudation. So it was a particularly joyful gathering and the evening offered us all the opportunity for a special enjoyment of art and stimulating conversations.
The founding of the Hamburg Secession in 1919 is considered the birth of the modern art scene in the city on the Elbe. To mark the 100th anniversary of the avant-garde artists' group, the Hamburger Kunsthalle presented an extensive exhibition. Dr. Karin Schick, Head of the Classical Modern Collection at the Hamburger Kunsthalle, was in charge of the exhibition. We were therefore extremely pleased that Dr. Schick took the journey to Berlin to introduce our exhibition. In her speech, she brought the Secession back to life and so we dived together into the turbulent times of the avant-garde.
Our thanks also go to the lenders of the exhibition: the Eduard Bargheer Museum, the estate of Dorothea Maetzel-Johannsen and Emil Maetzel as well as private art collectors from Berlin and Frankfurt have supported us in being able to present the pictures of the Secessionists.

Participation in the exhibition ÜBERSCHAU at the CSR

Shortly before Gallery Weekend, the exhibition ÜBERSCHAU opened today in the Contemporary Show Room (CSR - supported by ART@Berlin) on 400 m2 in Quartier 205 on Friedrichstraße. The exhibition brings together the work of 35 artists represented by 15 Berlin galleries. We are pleased to be represented with works by the Berlin artist Wolfram Beck, to whom we are currently dedicating a solo exhibition in our rooms on Auguststraße. In the CSR, we are showing works by the artist in which he varies his gate motif in an exploration of the themes of transcendence, finitude and loss. In the constructive and colourful paintings with a strong spatial effect as well as the sculpture made of granite, Beck artistically expresses that worldly comprehension comes to an end at this very gate.
The exhibition can be seen until 21 May and is intended as the starting signal for a new series of art exhibitions: The CSR initiator and operator is the non-profit DEEDS.LAB from Berlin. Its aim is to make contemporary art and the work of its producers visible in a supportive way, to get more people interested in art, to reduce threshold fears, to test new concepts and formats that make people curious about art and make art education more attractive, to create a space for discourse and to promote social interaction.
