The Grafikstiftung Neo Rauch (foundation of graphic works) is opening its third exhibition on May 24, 2014.

Since the establishment in 2012 the foundation is expecting its 10.000 visitor.

 

The third exhibition of the Grafikstiftung Neo Rauch (Foundation of graphic works) will open its doors on May 24, 2014 at 4 pm, „Neo Rauch. Das grafische Werk – Dritter Teil“, in the presence of Saxony-Anhalt’s prime minister, Dr. Reiner Haseloff. From May 25, 2014 until May 3, 2015, the Grafikstiftung will present selected works from its collection as well as new prints and drawings. Besides graphics the third part will show large works on paper. Two of them have been made in 2014 and will be presented to the public for the first time. Furthermore Neo Rauch’s sketches for the glass windows of the chapel of Saint Elizabeth at the Naumburger Dom from 2007, will be presented. These three works on paper will be provided for the period of this exhibition from Collection Faber-Castell.

The foundation was established in 2012 by the painter Neo Rauch, the city of Aschersleben and Gerd Harry Lybke and Kerstin Wahala from Galerie EIGEN + ART in Aschersleben, the hometown of the artist.
Two exhibitions with grafic works of the artist have been on display in the “Riegelbau” in the city’s Bestehornpark. The reason for the establishment of the foundation was a gift by the artist to his hometown:
In September 2010 Neo Rauch gave one copy of each grafic work of the previous editions to his hometown. Preservation, maintenance and presentation should be guaranteed by a foundation. Since the creation of the Grafikstiftung a copy of all further graphic works is included to the collection of the foundation.

The press appointment takes place at May 24, 2014, 2 pm at the Grafikstiftung. The press preview of the exhibition is scheduled for 1 pm. Please RSVP to:

HANNO & NEO RAUCH – Father and Son
Grafikstiftung Neo Rauch in Aschersleben
Exhibition opening on 21 May 2016, 4 p.m.

The Grafikstiftung Neo Rauch opens the exhibition
Hanno & Neo Rauch – Father and Son on 21 May, 2016.

This exhibition shows works by Neo Rauch and his father Hanno Rauch (1939 – 1960) for the
first time. For the showing, Neo Rauch has put together a selection of ca. 50 works from the legacy
of ca. 200 works by his father, Hanno Rauch. Hanno Rauch had begun to study at the Leipzig
Academy of Fine Arts in 1959. The exhibition is the painter Neo Rauch’s very personal encounter
with the works of his father, the artist Hanno Rauch. It presents woodcuts, graphics, and drawings
by Hanno Rauch. Works on view by Neo Rauch include new graphics and drawings, as well as
large-format paintings on paper and canvas.

Hanno Rauch was born in November 1939 in Gera. He grew up in his parents’ house in Gera,
where he discovered his artistic bent early. After finishing school, he attended the Workers and
Farmers Faculty in Dresden to prepare himself to study art. There he got to know the student
Helga Wand. The two of them went together from Dresden to Leipzig. In 1959, Hanno Rauch
began studying at the Leipzig Academy of Fine Arts; Helga Wand studied book design in Leipzig.
At this time, the painters Hartwig Ebersbach and Heinz Zander were Hanno’s friends and fellow
students. Hanno and Helga’s son Neo Hanno Rauch was born in Leipzig in April 1960; in May of
the same year, Neo Rauch’s parents died in a train accident. Neo Rauch grew up in Aschersleben
with his grandparents. Today he lives and works in Leipzig.

The painter Neo Rauch, the city of Aschersleben, and Gerd Harry Lybke and Kerstin Wahala
from the gallery EIGEN + ART jointly founded the Grafikstiftung in 2012 in Aschersleben, the
artist’s home city. The exhibition Hanno & Neo Rauch – Father and Son is the fifth exhibition
organized by the foundation since its founding and will be on view on the premises of the Grafikstiftung
Neo Rauch in Aschersleben from 22 May 2016 through 30 April 2017.
