100 Years Gerhard Hoehme „Mediators“ | Special Sale 28 August until 25 September


“I understand my art as an investigation (…)” is how Hoehme described the first decades of his artistic work in 1974. In addition to the recurring motif of coloured synthetic cords, other materials from industrial production are also frequently used in the works from this period. They lead to stunning stylistic inconsistencies and emphasize the experimental character of the work. In the sales exhibition, the “mediator heads” focus on the work of the late 1960s and 1970s.
