Maler. Mentor. Magier.
Otto Mueller und sein Netzwerk in Breslau
For the first time an exhibition addresses the huge artistic influence of the Brücke painter and German expressionist Otto Mueller: As a mentor for a younger generation, he taught for more than ten years at the State Academy of Fine Arts and crafts in Wrocław, which in the 1920s was regarded as one of Europe’s most progressive art schools. Here, the various movements in painting at the time were seen as equals: Académie Matisse, Expressionism, New Objectivity and Bauhaus. Otto Mueller, who was nonconformist and charismatic had significant influence on the local art scene.
This publication draws greater attention to an important joint chapter in German-Polish art history. It accompanies the exhibition by the Nationalgalerie, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, in collaboration with the Alexander and Renata Camaro Foundation.
