niemeyer’s AHA! events – by tradition current

Even though it is readily and often deliberately ignored: art always is topical. And quite frequently more topical – and foremost more striking – than some of today’s contemporaries not least in politics & economy may like. But no matter whether Hogarth or Ridinger, Landseer or Daumier – to name but a few from five centuries – now comment on current events or jubilees and other festivities and occasions are to be honored, it’s always: every month new – every month something else.

Ridinger Experiences. Life Work Posthumous Fame 1698-2020

The master triumphant in his abundance through the centuries and his friends in greeting. The great reading, fact, and picture book on “one of the few German Baroque artists who since his demise 220 years ago never fell into oblivion” (Rolf Biedermann, Meisterzeichnungen des Deutschen Barock, 1987, p. 338). – “At long last an illustrated publication on the work of Ridinger!” (Wolfgang Steiner) and a “… colossal work. This is something really unique. No one else could have appreciated Ridinger in this vein …” (Paul Dahms). (German)

Franz Heckendorf

“One of the most talented exponents of the young German generation of artists, whose personal style so far found its most mature expression in his landscapes filled by enormous dynamics of pictorial rendering and carried by strong inwardness of perception” Hans Vollmer wrote 1923 about then 35-year-old Franz Heckendorf. Like Heckel and E. L. Kirchner, with whom he shares his essentially autodidact maturing, ostracized as degenerate, it was not granted to him to emerge like phoenix from the ashes as those did. So his redemption is long in coming yet. However, it is a sheer fascination how this œuvre spans beginning and late period without a break.
