100 years of bauhaus I: Alfred Ehrhardt – Painting, Drawing, Prints

January 12 - April 18, 2019

Curators: Stefanie Odenthal M.A., Dr. Christiane Stahl
Opening: Friday, January 11, 2019, 7-9 pm

With presentation of the book and edition "Alfred Ehrhardt - Photographs"

On the occasion of the Bauhaus Centenary the Alfred Ehrhardt Foundation will show four exhibitions, which explicitly will be Bauhaus-themed. We will start with the exhibition Alfred Ehrhardt—Painting, Drawing, Prints that focuses on Ehrhardt not as a photographer, but as a painter and graphic artist. A special focus will be on his work dating from his Bauhaus period, which is being presented in Berlin for the first time since his solo exhibition at Meisterhaus Schlemmer in Dessau in 2007.

On the occasion of the Bauhaus Centenary the Alfred Ehrhardt Foundation will publish the retrospective catalogue Alfred Ehrhardt Photography, which will be accompanied by a limited special edition of 30 analogue platinum prints in cloth-bound slipcases and presented at the opening.

In Dessau during the winter semester of 1928–29 Alfred Ehrhardt got to know the Bauhaus masters Josef Albers, Oskar Schlemmer, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and Lyonel Feininger, who had a deep impact on his artistic work as well as his future teaching activities.

His abstract compositions, created in tempera on masonite, elucidate the “material sensitivity” that Ehrhardt acquired through a focused study of nature’s manifestations and laws – as taught at the Bauhaus.
