Coming Home. Art of the Rhineland now and then
„Coming Home“ should not only be the title for the first ever presentation of Galerie Ludorff in their hometown at Art Düsseldorf but it should pay tribute to the importance that the Rhineland has played for the production of internationally acclaimed art over the past one hundred years.
Major works of modern artists such as Hans Arp, Otto Dix, Max Ernst, Wilhelm Lehmbruck and the Rhenish Expressionists August and Helmuth Macke, Heinrich Nauen and Walther Ophey will represent the avantgarde art movements prior to WWII all of which have had their nucleus in the Rhineland. The major artists of the ZERO group stand for the groundbreaking energy that the end of the second world war had set free at the academies in Cologne and Dusseldorf. Interesting double presentations will present teacher and pupil relationships such as Gotthard Graubner and Katharina Grosse, Karl Otto Goetz and Gerhard Richter as well as Ewald Mataré and Joseph Beuys. The Dusseldorf School of Photography, which has enjoyed strong recognition from museums all over the world, will be represented by a typology of watertowers from Bernd and Hilla Becher and major works by their pupils Axel Hütte, Thomas Struth, Candida Höfer, Thomas Ruff and Jörg Sasse.
Important singular works by major post-war and contemporary masters such as Tony Cragg, Katharina Fritsch, Konrad Klapheck, Karin Kneffel, Imi Knoebel and Ernst Wilhelm Nay will add to an already rich presentation of historically outstanding art that was created in the Rhineland between 1920 and 2020.
