Works on Paper 1989 1995

Graphics Foundation Neo Rauch
Exhibition period: 6th June 2020 – 2nd May 2021


From June/6/2020 on, the Graphics Foundation Neo Rauch presents its ninth exhibition mainly encompassing works on paper created between 1989 and 1995 by Neo Rauch. The show is complemented with the large-sized works „Das Ziel“(1995) and „Die Küche“(1995) on loan and prints from the foundation’s collection.

Neo Rauch’s oeuvre dated before 1993 rarely had been in the public eye. During this time, the artist preferred to work on paper with oil paint, graphite, ink and watercolor in order to develop an individual picture language in his drawings, paintings and the art of printing. A broad variety is given by the choice of formats.

Neo Rauch on the matter: “The works had been kept in my drawers for almost 30 years and were brought to light in the course of preparing the exhibition in the Leipzig Museum of Fine Arts. In Aschersleben, the more intimate surrounding of the foundation already guarantees that these sheets will find an inclined audience in their whole – occasionally touching – indefiniteness. They are too fragile and in need of protection than to expose them to the traffic of the big stage; yet, they have come so close to me that I believe I can take responsibility for their presentation. In a sense, they form the hotbed of my creative work, and come as hesitant steps out of the unspecified.

The Graphics Foundation Neo Rauch is responsible for the museum of the same name in Aschersleben and developed to a vibrant place for contemporary art in Saxony-Anhalt since its founding in 2012. After several solo shows presenting Neo Rauch’s graphic oeuvre, double shows and the first group exhibition followed. The Graphics Foundation is pleased to present a special exhibition on the occasion of the artist’s 60th birthday.

The exhibition is kindly supported by the NORD/LB Kulturstiftung.
