A new extensive exhibition at the Museum No Hero in the Dutch town of Delden, near the city of Enschede, from April 22, 2023 to April 07, 2024, shows how versatile, qualityful and lively art was and is in Germany's East before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Doris Ziegler and Herman Glöckner are also featured in the exhibition, "The Surprise - East German Artists Before and After the Fall of the Wall." To visit the museum's website, which has more information, click HERE.
Doris Ziegler - Das Passagen-Werk. Malerei
First brought to public attention by the sensational exhibition "Point of No Return" at Leipzig's Museum der Bildenden Künste in 2019, the paintings can now be seen again in two parallel exhibitions:
At Kunstmuseum Moritzburg Halle (Saale) | "I am You" | Feb. 26-May 21, 2023.
At Döbele Kunst Mannheim | "Melancholy and World Theater" | 14.04. - 27.05.2023
Paintings from the years 1977 to 2016 are shown at the Kunstmuseum Moritzburg Halle (Saale) with great resonance. The title of the solo show there is the 1988 main work "Ich bin Du!" - a self-portrait in nude androgynous double form, provocative at the time of its creation, which is being offered by Döbele Kunst Mannheim. The public and the press were unanimously enthusiastic about the unexpected new discovery of this artist: In March 2023, the reviewer of the Berliner Zeitung and Frankfurter Rundschau, Ingeborg Ruthe, wrote with fascination how masterfully and authentically Doris Ziegler succeeded in reporting "in austere stylistics on the struggle of human existence between political storms and self-assertion.
While the cabinet exhibition in Halle (Saale) features excerpts from the complete works of the artist represented by Döbele, the focus in the gallery is pointedly on the "Passagen-Werk" created between 1988 and 1994. This cycle of paintings is undoubtedly the main artistic achievement of the painter, who was born in Weimar in 1949.
In Mannheim, eight paintings from the "Passagen-Werk" are now available, which is already a novelty considering the art-historical significance of these paintings. In addition, all the paintings come directly from Doris Ziegler's Leipzig artist's studio, where, completely unnoticed by the public, they have survived the political upheavals and art-historical reassessments.

In this country - art from the Palatinate
If something is to be good, it must be done with passion. This is also true for our upcoming art exhibition: an exhibition that has been put together with a lot of perseverance and dedication by a private collector - himself from the Palatinate. The passion for the region in the triangle between Karlsruhe, Mannheim and Kaiserslautern, for the Wine Route, the Palatinate Forest, for castles, palaces, rural life and the people themselves has finally produced a wonderful collection of paintings from the past century.
Our upcoming exhibition shows this art from the Palatinate, almost 50 works by 25 artists who came from this region or chose it as their home. You can experience how versatile their perception and view of the homeland is from April 27th in the rooms of our exhibition depot in Richard-Wagner-Str. 51!
Exhibition from April 27 - June 3, 2023
