Attention - glass!

Reverse glass painting from August Macke until today

29/3–12/7/2020

With select exhibits ranging from August Macke to contemporary art, the exhibition is dedicated to a special genre of painting that opened up a new creative field of experimentation for the artists of Classic Modernism. Beginning with the achievements of the Rheinland Expressionists and Der Blaue Reiter group, the topicality and variety can be seen that reverse glass painting still possesses for contemporary art today. Rare works by August Macke and Gabriele Münter, Heinrich Campendonk and Paul Klee, Carlo Mense and Paul Adolf Seehaus are responded to by reverse glass images created after 1945 by Werner Schriefers as well as contemporary positions: Michael Jäger, Camill Leberer and Gaby Terhuven show spatially related works that enter into a dialogue with both the collection and the museum architecture.
