We were in the storm
View into the collection #2
with Heinrich Campendonk, Marc Chagall, Robert and Sonia Delaunay, Paul Klee, August Macke, Gabriele Münter, among others
“We were in the Storm” is the second time that a “look into the collection” has accompanied an exhibition at the Kunsthalle Bielefeld. Based on the temporary exhibition “Jacoba van Heemskerck. Uncompromisingly modern”, the collection of the Kunsthalle Bielefeld will be presented in a new way. This results in previously unseen combinations and neighborhoods that reveal new and surprising aspects of the supposedly familiar works of art.
The “Sturm” was one of the most important rallying points for the avant-garde at the beginning of the 20th century. After founding a magazine under this title in Berlin in 1910, Herwarth Walden (1876-1941) and his wife Nell Walden-Roslund (1887-1975) opened a gallery of the same name two years later. The art movements propagated were Expressionism, Futurism, Cubism, and later Dadaism and New Objectivity. The “Sturm” existed until 1932 and was a network that operated internationally and interdisciplinarily and also took women’s art into account from the very beginning. “Blick in die Sammlung #2” shows works by artists who were members of the “Sturm” or exhibited there.
