"Neo Rauch: Comrades and Companions"

11/4/2018 / 1:30pm

Neo Rauch is one of the most successful German painters of his generation. His paintings fascinate by their enigmatic realism, the characters seem to have fallen out of time. They appear to be acting in a sleepwalk-like state. What the painter is presenting changes between dream, fantasy, and elusive reality, comprehensible and unconventional at the same time. The pictorial narrative is never explicit or clear - but nevertheless it leaves the beholder spellbound.

Director Nicola Graef shows the artist at work in his studio, observes critical dialogues with his artist wife Rosa Loy, and captures Rauch discussing his approach to art, his universe of images, and being deeply affected by the early loss of his parents. 

This event is related programming for the exhibition Neo Rauch: Aus dem Boden / From the Floor
