Joachim Brohm: Not a House
DUSSELDORF  •  Beck & Eggeling  •  21 January - 21 February 2015

The exhibition Not a House shows a variety of new and individual photographs created since 2012. They do not relate to a particular thematic or serial context. The subjects of these photographs are buildings, places and things which in time or space derive from different sources but which we often come across in everyday life. Through Joachim Brohm:'s specific selection of subjects, his compositional precision and muted colours which in their restraint remind one of the subtle grading of the colour grey in black and white photography, Brohm lends its own reflexive scope to the idiosyncratic combination of objects pictured in his photographs. His photos function as models for a reality which is informed by global matters and the media and in which possible levels of meaning superimpose.

Joachim Brohm (born 1955 in Dülken) lives in Leipzig. Since 1993 he is professor of photography at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst Leipzig (HGB) where he was also appointed director from 2003 until 2011. He studied photography at the Folkwang Universität der Künste in Essen as well as the Ohio State University in Columbus at the beginning of the 1980s and has been represented at numerous solo and group exhibitions in Germany and abroad ever since. In addition, also on the occasion of the 'Duesseldorf Photo Weekend 2015', the artist will participate at the exhibition 'Human Nature' with important works from the 1980s, celebrating the 15 year anniversary of the Kunstsammlung Deutsche Börse at the NRW Forum in Duesseldorf (30 January until 17 April 2015).

Jörg Immendorff: Trying to Become an Eagle
AUGSBURG  •  Glaspalast Augsburg  •  16 May 2014 - 17 May 2015

In his four decades as an artist Jorg Immendorff has always viewed painting as an analytical and critical method directed towards determining his own position in society. In a comprehensive exhibition at its offshoot gallery in Augsburg, the Pinakothek der Moderne delves into the world of Jörg Immendorff (1945– 2007), presenting nearly 50 works.

Immendorff’s work is marked by his sustained confrontation with the political and aesthetic conditions that characterised divided post-war Germany. His work takes inspiration from sources as diverse as Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, and William Hogarth, as well as Surrealist images, the picture stories of William Busch, and Socialist Realist works attempting to be “the voice of the people”. An in- depth consideration of this singular, contrary oeuvre is now on display for one year at the Staatsgalerie Moderne Kunst in Augsburg.

In addition to paintings and sculptures, the film “The Rake’s Progress” will be on view. Throughout his life, Immendorff was closely connected to the performing arts, and created the scenery and costumes for Igor Stravinsky’s opera based on paintings by William Hogarth (1697– 1764). In the 1994 production of the opera in Salzburg, the artist identified himself with the main character. Not unlike his paintings, his work for the opera included appearances by contemporaries such as Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Markus Lüpertz, A.R. Penck, and Michael Werner – his gallerist of many years. Together, they created a colourful vision of German art from the second half of the 20th century.

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue in German and English published by Buchhandlung Walther König.

Vkhutemas: A Russian Laboratory of Modernity
BERLIN  •  Martin-Gropius-Bau Berlin  •  5 December 2014 - 6 April 2015
Vkhutemas, often referred to as the “Russian Bauhaus”, was a legendary art school of Modernism in the 1920s. This is the first exhibition in Germany to show an important sampling – mainly focused on architecture – of the work of Vkhutemas. On display will be some 250 works: sketches, drawings, paintings and models by staff and students. The exhibition has been mounted by the Shchusev State Museum of Architecture, Moscow. These “Higher Artistic-Technical Workshops” were founded in 1920 by decree of the Soviet government. In eight faculties divided into production workshops (Wood, Metal, Textiles, Printmaking, Ceramics) and art workshops (Painting, Sculpture, Architecture) several thousand students received instruction. An introductory course with a completely novel artistic and scientific curriculum was followed by a degree course lasting several years. The staff of the school consisted of famous artists and architects of both sexes, whose names are associated with the heyday of the Russian avant garde: El Lissitzky, Naum Gabo, Moisei Ginzburg, Gustav Klutsis, Vasily Kandinsky, Nikolai Ladovsk, Alexander Melnikov, Lyubov Popova, Alexander Rodchenko, Alexei Shchusev, Varvara Stepanova, Vladimir Tatlin and Alexander Vesnin. The aim was to harness art and architecture to the task of making the “New Man”, thus bringing about a revolutionary renewal of the relationship between art and society. But the bitter disputes that broke out over the “right” course were also reflected in the history of the school, its teachers and its students, since architecture, as a “synthetic art”, had a key role to play here.
