Oskar Schlemmer (1888 – 1943) is one of the most versatile artists the modern world has known. He worked as a painter, draughtsman, graphic artist, sculptor, stage designer, and muralist, choreographed dance projects, and was also an author. In all of these different forms of artistic expression, one substantive aspect of his creativity is central: his vision of a future in which modern human beings would live in harmony with technical and social innovation. We are pleased to support with five loans the first monographic Schlemmer exhibition in eastern Germany, which impressively illustrates this diversity with more than 75 top-class exhibits. The exhibition runs until 29 July 2019 and offers a wonderful overview of the different creative areas of Schlemmer.
