Letters, sketches, drawings. View of the archive
How do you build an artist archive? Kunsthalle Bielefeld has been dealing with this exciting question since March 2022. Thanks to three donations, the Kunsthalle has recently housed a large number of letters, documents, drawings and sketchbooks by the Bielefeld painter Hermann Stenner (1891-1914), which are being newly recorded, digitized and further researched in the archive. The exhibition provides an insight into the Hermann Stenner Archive’s holdings of around 500 objects, which include previously unpublished letters and studies thought to have been lost.
