IN ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS EXHIBITION YEAR,
THE SCHIRN PRESENTS A MAJOR THEME SHOW
ON THE FEMALE ARTISTS
OF THE EARLY 20TH-CENTURY AVANT-GARDE,
THE STORM WOMEN.
Well, well, and behind all these women was a man.
Herwarth Walden (actual name Georg Lewin,
was a German Expressionist artist and art expert in many disciplines.
He is broadly acknowledged as one of the most important
discoverers and promoters of German avant-garde art
in the early twentieth century
(Expressionism, Futurism, Dadaism, Magic Realism).
This painting you probably recognize from the ads.
Women artists were versatile,
they painted, draw, designed costumes!
is one of the names that I recognize.
Gabriele Münter and Sonja Delaney as well,
but all the other 15 artists need to be checked.
Did Keith Haring get to see this pic too ...?
(Pic borrowed from internet.)
My recycle-crafting heart loves this!
STURM was everything,
also a magazine.
DER STURM (English: THE STORM)
marked the emergence into modern art
and an attempt to unite the international avant-garde.
Originally founded in 1910 as a magazine for the promotion of Expressionist art,
the name STURM quickly became a trademark:
its editor, the writer and gallery owner Herwarth Walden,
established the STURM Academy, STURM soirées,
a STURM stage, and the STURM Gallery,
It is always very cool to wander around the exhibitions
when only the press people are invited.
