Now resident in Dortmund, the 80-year-old is still as active in anti-racist movements and involved in “Dortmund gegen rechts” (Dortmund against the right, a broad movement against neo-Nazis).
Amongst the 12 pictures on exhibition is the famous “Familie Schnoog”, a depiction of a family murdered in Auschwitz concentration camp.
After October 4th the paintings which haven’t been sold will go back to Germany for an exhibition.
Charlie Mallon’s bronze castings are at large inspired by Celtic Mythology. The combination of Richter’s paintings and Mallon’s castings makes for a fascinating and unique mix.
Marion Baur: “Both his mystic motives from the Celtic twilight and her anti-racist and anti-war motivated painting have elements of dreaming about a better world. The two master artists meet here through their work – the 250-year-old mill cottage is a suitable environment for that, we think. It’s very honouring to be able to host two artists of this class.”
People who would like to see the exhibition would be advised to let the organisers know in advance. Both individuals and small groups are very welcome but space in the cottage is limited.
