The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.

Vordemberge Gildewart

nichts – und alles
Friedrich Vordemberge-Gildewart (1899–1962) was one of the most influential artists of German Constructivism and, amongst other things, a member of the De Stijl group surrounding Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg. 2012 marks the fiftieth anniversary of his death, which is a fitting occasion for a richly illustrated survey of his work.
Selected works and documents, some of them never before made public, present Vordemberge-Gildewart not only as a painter and graphic artist but also as an interior designer, typographer and architect. Sketches and photo-collages from his visitors’ books also give a picture of his artistic environment, which included not only László Moholy-Nagy and Hannah Höch but also writers such as Joachim Ringelnatz.
