Panel discussion „Karl Schmidt-Rottluff – Artist. Collector. Benefactor“


Last Sunday, Galerie Schüller held the opening matinee in the Bayerischer Hof with a podium
discussion in the context of the exhibition "KARL SCHMIDT-ROTTLUFF. Two masterpieces - one
wooden plaque". 

In this conversation participated Dr. Tanja Pirsig-Marshall, Deputy Director LWL
Museum für Kunst und Kultur in Münster and Christiane Remm, Curator of the Karl and Emy
Schmidt-Rottluff Foundation in Berlin. The discussion was moderated by Dr. Sebastian Preuss, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the magazines Weltkunst and Kunst und Auktionen, Berlin.

At the center of the lively discussion were the two main works of the current special exhibition on Karl Schmidt-Rotluff, Katholische Probsteikirche St. Patrokli, Soest of 1921/1922 and Dame mit Hut, around 1921. The panel of experts discussed the context of origin in Soest, which attracted many Expressionist artists thanks to its medieval city center and also inspired Karl Schmidt-Rottluff to many of his paintings. Another source of inspiration for the artist was his extensive collection of African works of art. Especially in the painting Dame mit Hut, the mask-like face immediately catches the eye. Ingrid Pérez de Laborda, the gallery’s art historian, subsequently talked about the jovial relationship between the previously unknown collector Franz Zöllner and the Brücke artist. The round agreed that it was  a real sensation that the two pictures are now available for the first time on the art market.

The film juxtaposes the selected works in such a way that they tell an entirely new story. Individual figurative elements are ingeniously animated, thereby creating a new art form of moving images. The resulting illusion offers a fresh perspective on the masterpieces of the outstanding artists to whom we wanted to pay particular tribute.

Prepare to be captivated by this visual experience.

Painted in oil, the animated film was designed and developed by the production company Neukla web & film on behalf of Galerie Schüller. Directed and produced by Benedikt Klaus and Benedikt Neumann. Sound design by Özay Tekin.


Gabriele Münter
Painting Without circumcision
31. October 2017 – 08. April 2018


She was an open-minded artist who embraced experimentation; many of her accomplishments have lingered in obscurity because her oeuvre has generally been studied through the narrow lens of her life and her relationship with Kandinsky. That is why the focus of attention has been almost entirely on her pictures from the "Blue Rider" years. Art lovers usually associate Münter’s name with German Expressionism, with Murnau and her home in the picturesque small town, now a museum dedicated to her and Kandinsky’s work. Yet Münter’s art was far more multifaceted, imaginative, and stylistically diverse than most people are aware.
