100 Years of the Bauhaus: On the occasion of the anniversary, the LWL-Museum für Kunst und Kultur in Münster is presenting the exhibition Bauhaus and America.


Mamma Andersson

Dog Days
In addition to personal life experiences, Mamma Andersson draws on a number of other sources for her paintings, including northern landscape painting of the 19th and 20th century, interiors from forensic investigations and scenes from theatre brochures.
The shift from meticulous attention to detail to gestural and abstract work lends the paintings an uncannily suggestive power. Thus, the portrayal of an everyday walk becomes a family drama, a children’s room is revealed as a place of loneliness and destruction. The artist is concerned at all times with life in its entirety: a reflection of the contemporary human condition.
