Press release: Opening 05/30/2015

The Grafikstiftung Neo Rauch opens the exhibition Encounter KARL BLOSSFELDT & NEO RAUCH on 30th May 2015.

Since the establishment of the Grafikstiftung in 2012, the foundation opens its fourth exhibition on 30th May 2015 in Aschersleben. The first three exhibitions solely consisted of works by Neo Rauch. In this show, however, two artists from the region Harz meet here for the first time: Karl Blossfeldt and Neo Rauch.

Thanks to the cooperation and support by the Ann and Jürgen Wilde Archive, original photography by Karl Blossfeldt can be seen in context with new works by Neo Rauch from 31 May 2015 on until 24 April 2016.  Blossfeldt’s plant photography is counted among the milestones of photography of the 20th century. His large-scaled photography had been inspired many artists until then. Neo Rauch faces Blossfeldt’s work artistically. His new prints, paper works and drawings will be presented together with Blossfeldt’s photography for the first time in public. An official exhibition catalog will be published by the Grafikstiftung Neo Rauch, obtainable from MMKoehn Verlag.

The following persons will be present at the press release: Neo Rauch; Ann and Jürgen Wilde / Stiftung Ann und Jürgen Wilde, Pinakothek der Moderne; Kerstin Wahala / chairwoman of the board Grafikstiftung Neo Rauch; Christiane Wisniewski / director of Grafikstiftung Neo Rauch; Andreas Michelmann / mayor of town Aschersleben. The press will be guided through the exhibition. Afterwards, the possibility is given to ask questions to the people present.
