LACMA’s sprawling analysis of postwar German art, “The Art of Two Germanys/Cold War Cultures,” occupies — fills — the complete additional attic of the Broad Contemporary. Arranged chronologically, in 11 galleries, it begins in the ’40s, afore there were two Germanys, and ends in the ’90s, afterwards the bank came bottomward and the disconnected country became accomplished (or at atomic one) again. The appearance is a admixture of the acclaimed (Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Sigmar Polke) and the absolutely unknown, and offers an befalling to see the above in socio-historical context, to ascertain the closing — new artists, new understandings — and to see all of this assignment in accomplished juxtaposition.

Mode auf dem Gelben Teppich oder der Altweibersommer ist …

The acclimation apperception abaft the exhibition is LACMA chief babysitter Stephanie Barron, and on a contempo afternoon she absolved and talked me through the complete show. I’d heard a few complaints about all that heavy, macho German painting — alarm it Imprussionism — and there are, absolutely literally, sausages and potatoes in the show. But we accumulate action aback to war-time and post-war Germany for adequate reason, best generally through actual texts, blur and abstruse (e.g., The Reader), and as Barron notes, art has appear backward to the table. It’s fascinating, then, to see such a advanced array of artists ambidextrous with such absurd issues — Nazism, authoritarianism, communism, cultural and claimed division, displacement, isolation, reconciliation, freedom, all of these in action and aesthetic expression.

This is decidedly so with those artists who came from the East, and all that meant, to the West, and all that meant. One such artisan was Gerhard Richter. There is a acclaimed painting of his in the appearance alleged Onkel Rudi, a bleared angel of the artist’s uncle in his German Wehrmacht uniform. It’s amid the aboriginal works by an artisan ambidextrous with the Nazi past, an airing of the family’s (and country’s) laundry, bedraggled or otherwise. (Richter, a affiliate of the Hitler Youth in his built-in Dresden afore artifice to the West in 1961, wasn’t necessarily accusatory his uncle Rudi, but conceivably artlessly saying, “This was how it was.”) The allotment was also, you’ll apprentice from Barron’s simple, basal texts, allotment of a Berlin display in 1967 alleged “Homage á Lidice,” in account of the Czech apple of Lidice, destroyed, alternating with its innocent population, on Hitler’s claimed adjustment in backfire for the killing of a admired Nazi officer. Google Lidice and you’ll acquisition the amazing story, lest we forget.

Not all is so aphotic in “Two Germanys.” There is Pop in the show, a little irony, and alike some chocolate. But it is account the accomplishment aloof to see Onkel Rudi in as abundant ambience as is humanly accessible on Wilshire Boulevard.

Note: The walk-through is long, the artworks many; we’ve included as abounding images as possible, but for an accession appearance of the show, appointment www.lacma.org.

L.A. Weekly: Can you set this up a little bit? Breadth did this all start?

Barron: This is one of several exhibitions I’ve done on German art. I can’t say that from the alpha they were advised as a sequence. I’d like to anticipate that my action is that organized, but it’s not. I anticipate sometimes these things anatomy a arrangement aback you attending aback on them, but there’s no catechism that the appearance in ’91 on base art [“Degenerate Art: The Fate of the Avant-Garde in Nazi Germany”] seemed to breeze into an exhibition about the exiles who were affected to leave Germany during the war and went to Europe and to the United States [“Exiles and émigrés: The Flight of European Artists from Hitler,” 1997]. So that, in a way, this appearance picks up aback in Germany at the end of the war in ’45, attractive at the bearings in the alive and disconnected Germany.

What was your aboriginal absorption in German art?

Frankly, like added alum students, I advised French art. There were few places aback I was in alum academy to absorption German art. It was alone absolutely aback I confused to L.A., in the mid-’70s to assignment at LACMA. The aboriginal big appearance I did actuality was the Russian Avant-Garde appearance in 1980, which absolutely afresh took me out of a affectionate of abundance breadth of French art but was abnormally agitative to accord with new territory. Afresh I activate that there was in actuality — this is in the canicule afore the Getty Library — that there was this amazing library, at that point a clandestine library, in Los Angeles of German expressionism and aboriginal German material.

The Rifkind Collection?

Yes, it was one guy’s clandestine accumulating [and is now the Robert Gore Rifkind Center for German Expressionist Studies at LACMA]. In a way, I was fatigued to that because it wasn’t an breadth that was actuality formed on a lot. Accepting appear out of the Russian appearance and ambidextrous with the adolescence and the ’20s it was a aeon that absorbed me a lot. My acknowledgment to aboriginal actual and attractive at aboriginal periodicals of the time and catalogs and prints and actuality opened up a lot of altered windows for me. The aboriginal German appearance I did was alleged “German Expressionist Sculpture” in 1982. As I catholic about Germany, best bodies seemed to feel that there wasn’t such a affair as German expressionist sculpture, but I kept digging and kept attractive in building basements and talking to people, and in fact, we did this rather amazing appearance of German expressionist sculpture.


Just the digging about for those kinds of things took me to museums to which I had never been. I had never done abundant traveling in Germany. So it was absolutely new breadth for me, and there weren’t a lot of added curators in America accomplishing actuality like that. I’ve consistently been absorbed in that intersection, I think, of art and politics. Absolutely I activate it in the Russian show. I’ve additionally enjoyed bringing altered mediums into exhibitions and not authoritative shows that are primarily painting shows. So it’s absolutely accessible for me to accommodate prints, photographs, film. I like accomplishing shows that are added multidisciplinary. In added shows, I’ve generally commissioned a filmmaker to do a blur in the exhibition. To me that’s a accustomed way to accompany bodies alternating in the storytelling, and I aloof think, Why not embrace that?

So here, in this show, which is organized chronologically, it was important for me to activate with blur footage of Berlin and Dresden at the end of the war so that bodies absolutely accepted what the bearings was like on the ground. I didn’t appetite narration, I aloof capital article that was action to visually arena bodies in what it looked like.

There are a brace of things that I can reflect on now with the appearance accepting been up for some weeks that I’m not abiding I anticipated. So abounding of the artists in this exhibition are alien to people, and yet it’s art of our own time. I’ve been afraid at how abundant that interests people. There’s a complete concern in acquirements about artists of our own time who accept been unknown. The additional affair is that admitting it’s an exhibition primarily beneath the banderole of the Cold War with East and West Germany, unless you apprehend the labels carefully, you don’t apperceive who’s East and who’s West. Because so abounding of the artists East and West are not known, it’s a complete leveling of the arena field. As I was accomplishing the appearance I was actual acquainted of who was East and who was West, but of advance the company advancing in doesn’t accompany that knowledge. By not accepting red light, blooming ablaze over the pictures or the sculptures, bodies absolutely appear in and attending at it as art, which is alluringly absolutely what we would accept wanted. I anticipate bodies accept been absolutely complete away.

So you’re basically bridging the two countries and art communities.

It has neutralized, in an absorbing way, the backroom at the aforementioned time it’s opened up the discourse. I’m action to be honest, I didn’t apprehend absolutely how able that would be in the presentation. I aloof knew that it was important in the labels because they all say breadth accession was born, breadth they alive or breadth they died, and breadth they were active. Some bodies were alive in East Germany, some were alive in East Germany for a time and afresh confused to West Germany. I capital the labels to be affectionate of quiet. There’s a lot to apprehend in the show, but I didn’t appetite it to scream out at you with bags of text. I capital it to feel like an art show, not a academic lesson.

I anticipate you succeeded. It feels about like a abiding collection.

The aboriginal allowance deals with ’45 to ’49. Aloof about every artisan in this allowance is action to be alien except for the expressionist artists, who are acrimonious up afterwards the war. Absolutely it’s not the greatest Hanna Höch painting [Trauernde Frauen (Mourning Women) (1945)], but it’s alluring to see what this abundantly beat artisan from the adolescence and the ’20s was accomplishing appropriate afterwards the war, and she’s acrimonious up on what were alleged the bits women, these women who were charwoman up afterwards the destruction.

These are absolutely rare, these Wilhelm Rudolph assets that he did onsite in Dresden. They’re absurd drawings. There was like a apartment of about 100 that I chose from the book chiffonier in Dresden.

Then these photographs by Richard Peter Sr. [from the alternation Dresden nach der Bombardierung vom 13./14. Februar 1945 (Dresden afterwards the Bombing of February 13th/14th, 1945)], you can attending at in a way alone afterwards seeing the blur footage; afresh they become all the added astonishing. The added affair is from a U.S. point of appearance we’ve never abundant anticipation about what the bearings was in Germany on the ground. I anticipate our accomplished angle has been one of cerebration about the victims of the Holocaust, and afresh basically, yeah, we austere the hell out of them at the end and concluded the war. That’s been the way I anticipate we’ve abstruse the adventure of the end of the Additional World War, and that’s not to altercation it, but it’s to say that there’s accession reality.


There were victims of that bombing.

If one thinks about the end of the war from a German point of view, it was one of death, destruction, dearth and accident because fathers, brothers, uncles were all absent in the war. It was, shall we say, a aggregate tragedy and abasement that was in a way unspoken. Because, accustomed the admeasurement of the Holocaust, it was never article the Germans could own in a accessible way. They couldn’t affirmation victim-ness.

No, because they were the bad guys.

They were the bad guys, but they were also, at the end, victims. It’s a actual agitable band and it’s why alone afresh has there been added of an arrival of abstruse ambidextrous with the end of the war from the Germans’ point of view. You anticipate about those Victor Klemperer diaries. If you anticipate about W.G. Sebald autograph about the destruction, that’s alone appear out in the aftermost 15 years in Germany (and afresh it takes time to get translated). So it’s still a affectionate of black area.

They’re still ambidextrous with it now. In Berlin, there are the bullet-scarred buildings, the little building kiosks everywhere, the Mauer (wall) museum, the streetside exhibition “The Topography of Terror” …

The afterwards ancestors of Germans accept looked absolutely at the war, but that’s a post-’68 ambidextrous with it. If you allege to bodies in their 20s and their 30s, they accept visited the camps, they absolutely apperceive a amazing amount, yet [with] their parents or their grandparents, there was a blackout about it. I acquisition it actual absorbing as an American and as a Jew. It’s not been an breadth that, at atomic in beheld culture, has been addressed much. It’s addressed abundant added in abstruse and in film.

Anyway, so this [Hans Grudig, Den Opfern des Faschismus (zweite Fass) (To the Victims of Absolutism {Second Version}) (1946/9)] is a attenuate archetype afresh of a assignment appropriate at the end of the war of an artist, who was not Jewish, acclamation a assignment about the victims of the camps. He was in a action camp, Sachsenhausen, as a political prisoner. His wife was Jewish. So this was his cardinal and afresh he references the Jewish star. He did two versions of the painting, one with the brilliant and one without. It’s one of the attenuate examples that absolutely anon confronts it.

NATUR & UMWELT. Naturschutz überall. ... auch entlang von ...

NATUR & UMWELT. Naturschutz überall. … auch entlang von …

It’s a admirable piece. Breadth did you get it?

It’s from [the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden], and they never accommodate it. I accept to say I got amazing loans. That’s absolutely the aftereffect of alive in this acreage for 25 years and accepting bodies assurance you. Contrarily it’s like, why are they action to accelerate these things to L.A.?

How did you acquisition all of these pieces?

You start, you travel, you attending at books, you attending at old catalogs. There were, for instance, starting appropriate at the end of the war, a alternation of exhibitions that were done, all German exhibitions. They were done in Dresden. They were done in baby towns in Germany. You activate to attending at what was alike put on appearance at the time. Afresh you travel, and you look, and you allocution to people, and afresh you alpha allurement for loans.

You accept a German co-curator.

I accept a German co-curator, Eckhard Gillen, which was agitating because he lives in Berlin. He knows a amazing amount. He’s done exhibitions. He’s accompany with lots of artists, and it was absolutely accessible for me in agreement of authoritative me acquainted of a lot of artists whom I didn’t know, and afresh we would analyze through it together. He was absorbed to see what formed for my sensibility, for what I anticipation would be for a U.S. affection and what I was absorbed in and what I wasn’t absorbed in.

This is interesting. [Werner Heldt, Tür (Door) (1946)] This guy Heldt was in Berlin. This is a allotment he did on a door, which he aloof found, and the red is lipstick. Afresh you accept artists who backward in East Germany. Of advance there is no East and West Germany in this room. It hasn’t happened yet. It’s an alive country, alive by the allies from ’45 to ’49. So it’s basically a country that has been disconnected by England, France, Russia, the Soviet Union and the United States. Berlin, of course, is disconnected into four sectors.


This artist, Gerhard Altenbourg, concluded up blockage in the East, and he did this amazing cartoon on recycled paper, with children’s assets [Ecce Homo 1 (Sterbender Krieger) (Ecce Homo 1 {Dying Warrior}) (1949)].

Were you accustomed with any of the artists in this room?

I knew Altenbourg, actually, because I had been to that building for a antecedent exhibition I had done in the East. I knew Heldt’s work. I did not apperceive Rudolph, and acutely I knew Hanna Höch. I knew [Ernst Wilhelm] Nay’s work. I had apparent a lot of it, but I had to attending carefully to acquaint a adequate assignment from a not-so-interesting work. I knew [Willi] Baumeister. But here’s a guy, no ability of this guy, [Juro] Kubicek [Berlin 1947]. So there’s this revisiting of a Dada sensibility. They’re analytic about in the ’40s and what are they action to affix aback to? The antecedent 12 years is abolishment anybody capital to affix to, the Nazi era, so do you go aback to expressionism, do you go to Dada, do you go to new objectivity, do you go to abstraction? They’re searching. Actuality is a actual absorbing assignment by Fritz Winter [Triebkräfte der Erde (Sprouting Powers of the Earth) (1944)]. It’s at the end of the war. Now, the way best bodies allocution about it, at the end of the war in the West you had abstraction, which is alike with abandon and democracy, and in the East you had realism, which was left-wing accuracy and it was communism. Well, here’s Fritz Winter accomplishing these affectionate of abstruse works, but it’s alleged Sprouting Powers of the Earth, which has an afflictive arena of claret and soil. So they’re abstention about in and amidst what’s German in German art and they’re abstention in and about actuality that had additionally been percolating during the Nazi era. It’s fascinating.

One of the things I like about the exhibition is that it upends our preconceptions, and there is ambiguity. If I could feel that there are a brace of contributions the appearance would make, one is to apprehension accessible the accustomed binaries. The added is to [challenge the belief] that all 20th-century German art is expressionist in nature. It’s additionally not all about painting. I anticipate those are three things I achievement that the appearance challenges.

This allowance [No. 2] was the hardest to install, and it has become, in a way, my admired allowance aloof because you see all the accoutrement appropriate here. We’re now in the 1950s. You now accept an East and a West, two altered states, two altered countries. You accept the abstruse East bringing calm workers in this affectionate of acute action to anatomy up the city. [For example, Otto Nagel’s Junger Maurer (Mauerlehrling Wolfgang Plath), (Young Bricklayer {Apprentice Wolfgang Plath}) (1953)] We’ve apparent the abolition in the antecedent room. Aback these Left-wing Realist paintings, which accept been the untouchable, you know, that’s the actuality that cipher anytime absolutely capital to attending at. Aback it doesn’t attending absolutely so angry or threatening. You activate to attending at it and you say, “Well, how altered is this from some American art in the 1930s?”

I was action to say, what does this admonish of? It looks like …

Norman Rockwell. Some of it is a little bit added ballsy than others, but it’s not the bogeyman everybody has affectionate of been authoritative it out to be. That’s action on in the East. In the West you’ve got a cardinal of artists award a affectionate of existential abstruse nothingness, if you will, attractive to France to art that’s familiar. So you accept works like this [Karl Otto Götz, 16.12.52 (1952)] or [Gerhard Hoehme, Essor en Décline (Progress in Decline) (1958)]. Afresh we accept some things that affectionate of apprehension it open. My admired is Herman Glöckner, who I didn’t apperceive about and activate while attractive in Dresden in the ’80s [Hermann Glöckner, Appearance of Accession of Glöckner altar as apparent at LACMA, 2008].

Are these the abstruse pieces?

Yes. There was no unemployment in East Germany, so basically his job was accomplishing little decorations on buildings, but this was his clandestine work. I alarm them sketches, sculptural sketches. They’re not advised as maquettes for bigger works — but it’s befitting the academician nimble. It’s befitting the fingers nimble. Whether it’s fabricated out of matchbooks or letters, wood, some of it comes out of constructivist sensibility. Some of it comes out of the Dada sensibility, and some of it’s aloof the arduous acumen of what abstracts are at duke whether it’s a laundry bactericide box, eyeglasses, string, wire, coffeepot.


This was aloof in a box?

It was in this big cabinet. You opened the aperture and it was like about falling out. I aloof thought, “I appetite to accompany this to Los Angeles,” and what I adulation is that it absolutely upends the expectation. It was action on at the aforementioned time that this actuality is actuality fabricated and it’s as able and as agitating and as alpha as one could be. It aloof confounds one’s expectations. By the aforementioned token, aback you go to the West, there’s a painter like Konrad Klapheck, who, as best artists were alive like this [expressionistically], takes these domiciliary objects, which are from the mid-’50s, and elevates them, puts them on these apparent backgrounds and celebrates them [Der Wille zur Macht (The Will to Power) (1959) and Die gekränkte Braut (The Offended Bride) (1957)]. For him, this is like a male-female thing. Additionally if you attending at the appellation of this, it’s alleged The Will to Power, which of advance is a affectionate of corruption of Nietzsche. Absolutely aback it was made, this is 10 years afterwards the end of the war, there’s no catechism that aback bodies looked at these things [the keyboard] they saw the affectionate of formations you would see in Leni Riefenstahl films.

Is he reacting adjoin the array of expressionist assignment actuality done in West Germany?

Yes, he’s absolutely reacting adjoin it. He said, “I’m not absorbed in that.”

Did he anytime do any?

Yes, he did. I activate some aboriginal material. He was built-in in ’35 so he’s not old. He’s in his backward 20s aback he’s accomplishing this, so there’s affectionate of what I’d alarm apprentice assignment that looks like [expressionism]. He did his aboriginal one of these in 1955.

It’s so berserk altered from aggregate abroad we’re seeing.

I anticipate photography is accession absolutely able allotment of the show. This is West German photography in the 1950s at the time of the alleged bread-and-butter miracle, aback it was alloyed by money from the Marshall Plan. Everybody aback was even and affairs all kinds of things. This guy Chargesheimermade this hardly analytical photography in the 1950s, and afresh it’s absolutely absorbing [Beim Einkaufen (While Shopping) (1958)]. This is East German photography, aforementioned time.

This is an artist, Arno Fischer, who was accomplishing a portfolio alleged Bearings Berlin, which he started in the backward ’50s and was planning to finish, but the bank went up in August 1961. Here’s the Kurfürstendamm in the West[Kurfürstendamm, West-Berlin (1957)] and here’s Stalin-Allee in the East. Fischer was attractive at these comparisons, but wasn’t able to accomplishment it so it was never published.

Then we accept some of the approved, official artists in the East. Bodies like Willi Sitte [Massaker II (Massacre II) (1959)]. It’s not a abundant painting by any stretch, but it shows that some of these artists were attractive to Picasso. Picasso was accept to attending at because he was a communist. So he would be able to be reproduced in the East German art period, admitting the added capital abstracts of accession would not be. These, I alarm Penck afore Penck. This is absolutely aboriginal work.

Joseph Beuys | Der Tisch | Multiples

Joseph Beuys | Der Tisch | Multiples

How acclaimed was Penck?

Penck was absolutely appealing well-known, but not in the ’50s. He was accepted in the ’70s and he didn’t leave until 1980, but he was assuming in the ’70s. Now we’re in the backward ’50s, aboriginal ’60s. So again, accession blur blow to appearance the bread-and-butter phenomenon in the West and aloof to affectionate of accord an abstraction of what that acquainted like.

[Moving into allowance No. 3.] This allowance is all West, and we accept artists who are allotment of article alleged the Zero Group. They’re affectionate of blame the envelope of new technologies. It’s artists like Otto Piene [Zur Geschichte des Lichts (On the History of Light) (1958-9)], Günther Uecker [Das gelbe Bild (Yellow Painting) (1958) and TV auf Tisch (TV on Table) (1963)], who did the nails, and who’s basically attacking, literally, customer objects. We accept some single-channel video over there in which he absolutely goes through a acreage of the nails and he’s beating them into the fields about as if he’s sowing it with seeds. It’s absolutely beautiful.

So again, Fluxus video is allotment of this accomplished arena in Germany aboriginal on, whether it’s [Joseph] Beuys, or Nam June Paik, who was there. These are all 1964. These are all aboriginal happenings. Fluxus absolutely began in Germany. The Chocolates and the arcane sausage is Dieter Roth, who chose aliment and amoebic actual to accomplish his art out of. [Roth’s sausages are fabricated of chopped-up books by authors he didn’t like.]


Those are complete genius.

The accomplished angle of it is aloof fantastic. Afresh the Amber Lion Tower has about 1,800 pounds of chocolate. Each one of these came in its own little box.

This is re-created? How did that happen?

We contacted the artist’s acreage and we paid for the artifact of this to be acclimated for this exhibition.

It smelled adequate the night I was here, but afresh I apprehend Christopher Knight’s allotment in the L.A. Times …

Christopher anticipation it was revolting. It’s a little much. Aback we were installing it I concluded up accepting to go buy this huge box of amber for the guys who were installing.

[Wolf] Vostell is somebody who’s not acclaimed abundant at all, I think, in the United States, actual political. One generally thinks of him or talks about Rauschenberg in the aforementioned animation sometimes, but he’s really, absolutely political. He’s anti-West, anti-American [B-52 (“Lippenstiftbomber”) (B-52 {Lipstick Bomber}) (1968) and Coca-Cola (1961)].

This allowance (No. 4), is one of my favorites because you aloof feel this action and this excitement. We’re not arena by rules anymore, and you apprehend afterwards the allowance we came through aboriginal of all how all-embracing [it’s become]; aback now there’s a discourse. They’re not alone attractive to a German past, but American artists are actuality seen. We’re basically in the mid-’60s here. Zero Accumulation is like ’59 to ’60, so this allowance is all ’60s. You see an access of Pop Art, which in Germany got affectionate of askance into article alleged Capitalist Realism. So an artisan like Konrad Lueg [Ohne Titel (Untitled) (1966)], who became the banker Konrad Fischer, did these works application battery curtains. Gerhard Richter and Sigmar Polke were amid the artists assuming in this appearance of alleged Capitalist Realism. So we reconstructed this accession that Richter did. It was a 24-hour accession adulatory this guy alleged Volker Bradke, who was aloof some guy who came and afraid about with him, so in a actual Warholian way. Basically Bradke gets his 15 minutes. He gets one of [Richter’s] bleared photo paintings, a agglomeration of photos and this appropriately arid bleared film.

So there are added jokes now.

There’s irony. There is no irony in the East, but there’s absolutely irony in the West. Polke, aboriginal Polke, this is one accession and to his specifications, and it’s these 12 paintings on this filigree assignment [Fünftziger Jahre, Die (The Fifties) (1963-69)].

In this order?

In this order, yeah. He brand it. The building that it comes from tends to do it abundant added angular and he didn’t like it, so he asked us to do it this way. It’s a abundant allotment alleged The Fifties. It’s a allotment he formed on during the ’60s. It affectionate of goes afresh with this Potato House, which is a affectionate of riff, if you will, on every German [having] the little garden cottages, but it’s absorbed with these potatoes, which of advance was the basic during the war. And afresh this added one, LBJ and Mao as the potato heads, which may be one of my admired paintings in the appearance [Kartoffelköppe, Mao & LBJ (Potatoheads, Mao & LBJ) (1965)]. Mao was a big affair of this time, of course. This is a assignment by Thomas Bayrle [Mao (1966)], which every 30 account goes on for about a minute and a half, and it flips and it becomes a red star. There was a faculty of humor. There was faculty of experimentation. There was a faculty of fun, blame the envelope, which I anticipate you absolutely feel in the ’60s.

The abutting allowance we’re action to go into, which is additionally the ’60s, this is the allowance breadth artists are advancing to agreement with Germany’s past. It happened in abundant allotment because of the Auschwitz Trials. If you’ve apparent The Reader, the balloon that takes abode in that blur was modeled on the Auschwitz Trials, a alternation of trials that went on amid 1963 and 1965. Twenty-two guards, accustomed bodies who went aback to accustomed lives but who during the war had been guards in the camps, were put on trial. It’s adamantine for us to brainstorm that it took 20 years for Germans to abode the war, but we aloof accept to bethink that afterwards the war — with the humiliation, with the defeat — cipher capital to allocution about it. These trials went on over two years; they were appear every day in the newspapers, people’s names were there, hundreds of bodies witnessed them, hundreds of bodies testified. It was alone afresh that it became allotment of people’s awareness.


So brainstorm if you had been built-in in the ’40s and you’re account about these trials and you’re 22, 23. What’s the aboriginal affair you’re action to do? You’re action to go home and say to you parents, “And breadth were you?” So what it affronted amid that bearing was this faculty of abuse at the ancestor bearing for accepting followed Hitler, accepting absent the war, accepting led to Germany’s abasement and all of that. What it did afresh is it fueled the apprentice movement, which you accept in ’68 and afresh it took a affectionate of askance about-face in Germany against the terrorists, theBaader-Meinhof gang. From a actual point of view, the ’60s absolutely drain appropriate into the ’70s, so it’s affectionate of one big area in the exhibition. You accept to accept a little bit about the history, but it’s absolutely fascinating.

It’s alone in the ’60s afresh that artists now alpha to accede the acrimony against the beforehand generation. Of advance for abounding of them it’s not the Holocaust they’re imaging or reflecting, it’s German aggressive history.

Right, which represents …

Which is this. Exactly. [Wolf Vostell’s Hommage á Lidice (Homage to Lidice) (1958) and Richter’s Onkel Rudi (Uncle Rudi) (1965)] Both of these were apparent in an exhibition in 1967 in Berlin alleged “Hommage á Lidice,” because chat had assuredly afresh advance about the Nazi massacre, the abolishment of the Czech apple of Lidice. A gallerist in Berlin, René Block, put on this exhibition alleged “Hommage á Lidice” and arrive artists to either actualize new assignment or accelerate in absolute work, so both of these pieces were apparent in that aboriginal ’67 exhibition. Vostell leaves little to the imagination. The Richter is a actual acclaimed picture, but you apprehend it in a altered way in this context, and it’s alluring that both of these [works] are still to this day endemic by the canonizing in Lidice.

If you attending about this room, aloof at a glance there are alone three artists who did not appear from the East, [Markus] Lüpertz, [Anselm] Keifer and [Bernhard] Heisig. So again, here’s breadth that assumption aloof avalanche by the wayside. Richter came from the East. [Georg] Baselitz came from the East. Penck came from the East. [Eugen] Schönebeck, who was a actual abutting acquaintance of Baselitz, they both larboard the East, went to West Berlin and they did a appearance and appear a acclamation alleged The Pandemonium Acclamation in which they argued for acknowledgment to expressionism. They were aggravating to affix aback to that beforehand German painting, and in a way that fueled the nomenclature, if you will, of Neo-Expressionism. This is absolutely the aboriginal acclamation [Georg Baselitz, Eugen Schönebeck, Pandämonium I Manifest – 1. Version (Pandemonium I Acclamation – 1st Version) (1961-2)].

Here’s a Baselitz painting. It’s alleged Account for the Fathers. It’s a appealing abominable account and it’s, again, about this arduous of the ancestor generation. Schönebeck, he fell by the wayside. He and Baselitz were absolutely close, formed carefully calm and afresh Baselitz’s brilliant took off and Schönebeck aloof affectionate of got larboard behind, and he chock-full painting. He still lives in Berlin and he’s an amazing man. He was an amazing painter.

This is aboriginal Penck, it’s aloof the absolute Cold War picture. You’ve got the East and the West. It’s a painting alleged World Appearance from the aboriginal ’60s. Remember, he didn’t leave Dresden and the East until 1980, so he was bent amid two worlds. You apprehend this now a little abnormally afterwards seeing the Uncle Rudi picture, and this is Schönebeck [Majakowski (Mayakovski) (1965)].

That’s such a admirable painting [of Mayakovski].

It’s an amazing picture. Kippenberger, we’re talking about Kippenberger [and Schönebeck’s access on him]. It’s a absolutely absorbing painting.

This one actuality is Lüpertz [Helm I (Helmet I) (1970)], and again, it’s a account about the aggressive and the accident of account and the destruction. It’s alone the abutting generation, which is Kiefer, who begins to afresh advertence the Holocaust. This [opposing] bank are all the artists who backward in the East, ambidextrous with some of the aforementioned topics. While in the West there was this angle of “de-Nazifying” the above Nazis in the ’50s, that didn’t appear in East Germany because the faculty was the accomplished country was founded on a affectionate of antifascism so that there weren’t Nazis there.

So there wasn’t absolutely as abundant all-overs in a way.

There wasn’t as abundant all-overs and there wasn’t the aforementioned faculty of guilt. But these works by [Werner] Tübke [Lebenserinnerungen des Fr. Jur. Schulze III (Reiminiscinces of Schulze, JD III) (1965)], afresh one of the added acclaimed of the official artists, booty a affectionate of added emblematic way. Actuality he comes up with this abstruse adjudicator alleged Dr. Schulze, who presides over this garden of unearthly delights with all of these references to the camps and the ache and the Nazi uniforms — in a added coded way. It’s not as in your face, because that would not accept been acceptable, and [he was] still criticized for accomplishing this in the East. Or accession like [Wolfgang] Mattheuer [Kain (Cain) (1965)], who uses the biblical adventure of Cain and Abel to advertence the …


… the East-West .?

Yeah, exactly. But, again, they accept to acquisition added means than actuality cool direct. So it aloof affectionate of challenges our preconceptions.

[Heading into allowance 6.]

This is a big show!

Well, it’s two countries, two art histories, abutting to 50 years. It’s a lot, and it’s aggravating to accomplish it into a apprehensible exhibition so it’s hard. Beuys is absolutely one of the best acclaimed of the postwar figures, and, in a way, one thinks of him now as not alone aloof a maker of altar but absolutely accession who was so complex in affectionate of amusing action. This, for instance, [Joseph Beuys, Ausfegen (Sweeping Up) (1972-85)] is a across-the-board up afterwards a May Day anniversary in West Berlin in 1972. So we accept a video of the across-the-board up and afresh this is the bits that was collected. I anticipate by accepting the video, one begins to accept him as a amusing motivator, these amusing sculptures. Afresh on the added ancillary is this about size-specific assignment by Thomas Schütte [Große Mauer (Large Wall) (1977)], actual aboriginal work, aback he was still a apprentice of Gerhard Richter’s. It’s like they’re little Richter paintings and they sit rather alarmingly on these two little pins. From a ambit it looks like this abundant wall.


Beautiful, admirable piece. So continuing in the ’60s and ’70s, Baselitz, [Jörg] Immendorff, Penck. Some of the Baselitz hero pictures again, ambidextrous with soldiers abnormality about at the end of the war aggravating to affectionate of acquisition a affectionate of new land. These are Penck sculptures aback he was still in Dresden from the aboriginal ’70s, alive with activate abstracts as well. It’s alluring from attractive about that the abstruse assignment in this allowance comes from the East, which again, is not what one would expect. These are Glöckner’s, our guy from several apartment ago, 1975, appealing beautiful.

A abutting acquaintance of his in Dresden was Achim Freyer, who is now in Los Angeles administering The Ring. He was a beheld artisan in Dresden. So aback I installed this, he came to me and he said, “Oh, I adulation you. You put me aback abutting to my acquaintance Glöckner.” Somebody came to me the night of the aperture and said, “Oh, [Glöckner] charge accept been attractive at Agnes Martin.” I said, “Not alone didn’t he apperceive Agnes Martin, [but] he’d never apparent [her work].” He said, “Well, he could accept apparent it in Art Forum.” I said, “He would accept been confined for accepting a archetype of Art Forum! This is an aboriginal [Jörg] Immendorff, which was absolutely political, and actuality he’s demography on Vostell as an artisan [Deutsche Künstler: Vostell (German Artists: Vostell) (1975)].

Making fun of him.

Exactly, the aforementioned allotment that we saw in the added room. Actuality is a Hans Haacke installation. We’ll accept a altered one at the German venues. He’s the alone artisan who lives in the States who’s in the exhibition. He’s German. He acutely has a convenance that affectionate of is in both countries and this was affectionate of an antiwar piece. He asked that aback this allotment is displayed in the United States we use a photo blow-up of a U.S. antiwar demonstration. If it’s in Germany you can do a German one.

Fair enough.

Now we’re into the one bank with photography from the backward ’70s, but contrarily basically the ’80s, breadth artists are affectionate of relooking at fascism, actual abnormally from the way it was done in the ’60s. There’s a altered bend to the work. This is an accession by Raffael Rheinsberg [Hand und Fuß (Hand and Foot) (1980)] who activate in the 1970s, in an alone West Berlin railway station, the shoes and gloves from prisoners who would be taken to action camps. He calm them and angry them into an accession in the 1980s.

We’ll segue to the photography which could accept been in an beforehand gallery. It’s affectionate of backward ’70s. So the Bechers, of course, so able-bodied accepted [Bernd and Hilla Becher, Gas Tanks (1970)], but these are works by some of their aboriginal students, so Candida Höfer. This is from a portfolio she fabricated about Turkish bedfellow workers. Or aboriginal Thomas Struth, and afresh the ambiguity of — added than the Volkswagen — was this East, was this West? [Thomas Struth, Friedrich-Engels-Straße, Leverkusen (1980)]. And afresh this astonishing Thomas Ruff portfolio; admitting it’s from the ’70s the interiors are all these ’50s, all-over German interiors [Thomas Ruff, Interierur 13B (Interior 13B) (1980)]. Like I said, agitator action was appealing prevalent. Kidnappings, the assassinations affronted accession like Jürgen Klauke in the West to do this series, which he began in the ’70s and connected until 2000 of these affectionate of bearding terrorists, these photographs of bearding terrorists. [Jürgen Klauke, Antlitze (Faces) (1972-2000)]


Lutz Dammbeck is an artisan from the East, who afresh went to Hamburg, combines images from photographs of Hitler’s admired artist, Arno Breker, the sculptor, and he sews them calm with images of leaders from the Baader-Meinhof assemblage in these affectionate of adamant frames, a actual able allotment [Lutz Dammbeck, Nibelungen (Nibelung) (1986-88)]. This allowance is what I alarm the underground arena in the East in the 1980s. Attending at the works of the Dresden group, alleged the Autoperforationists. They would do hours and hours of performances. We accept the videos from them. We accept black-and-white photographs and what they alleged the accoutrement from the performances.

This allotment in the average of the allowance is by Via Lewandowsky [Gefrorene Glieder brechen leicht (Frozen Limbs Break Easily) (1989)]. It could be about a allegory for the two Germanys. You accept this Janice amount absorbed to this body, breadth one leg is fettered, the added unfettered, and the amount is about active into a knife. It sits ambiguous on this accoutrement that is ambiguous and abounding with rocks from destroyed Dresden.

Photography, again, is able in the East. Artists were able to assignment a little added abreast accomplishing photography. One of the strongest, I think, is Gundula Schulze Eldowy [Lothar, Berlin 1982 and Lothar, Berlin 1983]. This is a alternation of assignment she did about [a postal worker] alleged Lothar, and aback she asked to photograph him he said, “Fine, but in accession to this photograph I appetite you to appear home and booty my photograph in my flat,” and he insisted aloft assuming [nude]. It’s a appealing absurd interior. This is a photograph of a adolescent accepting an X-ray [Ohne Titel, Dresden 1990 (Untitled, Dresden 1990)]. It’s a absolutely boxy photo, but she’s actual good.

There aren’t a accomplished lot of women in the show.

Well, this allowance has a lot. Gundula, Evelyn Richter, Maria Sewcz, Helga Paris, Barbara Metselaar-Berthold. The women photographers in the East …

… are happening.

Totally. Totally. This is affectionate of the East German Nan Goldin: Helga Paris. Photographs over actuality by Sibylle Bergemann [Ohne Titel (Berlin), (Untitled {Berlin}) (1986) and Ohne Titel (Gummlin), (Untitled {Gummlin}) (1984)]. So a lot of women in this room.

Then the aftermost allowance is all West. Postmodernism never happened in the East, but it of advance happened in the West. Martin Kippenberger [Zwei Proletarische Erfinderinnen auf dem Weg zum Erfinderkongreß (Two Proletarian Women Inventors on Their Way to the Inventor’s Congress) (1984)], Rosemarie Trockel [Ohne Titel (Untitled) (1987)], and afresh a aggregate of Isa Genzken [Tür (Door) (1988)] and Richter [November (1989)]. Afresh the actual aftermost assignment is a video by Marcel Odenbach from the West, who happened to be in Leipzig in the East aback the bank came down. So he aloof did this video [Niemand ist mehr dort wo er hinwollte (No One is Breadth They Advised to Go) (1989-90)], breadth he about collages images of bodies action aback and alternating beyond the bank and aloof what was action on at the time. It makes a nice adverse in a way to the actual footage at the alpha of the exhibition.

The display will be at the Broad Contemporary through April 19.
