Exhibition duration : 23.7.20 - 19.9.20
COMING HOME with Ralf Schmerberg is also the highlight of the Heitsch Gallery at this year's OPEN ART in Munich, from September 11 to 13, 2020! Ralf Schmerberg's latest film YESTERWAY (2020) will also be presented. More information will follow shortly.
Photography is an important part of the all-encompassing pictorial worlds of the internationally successful filmmaker, director, artist and activist RALF SCHMERBERG. "Coming Home" is the title of the exhibition and the new catalogue, which presents the multifaceted work of the (life-)artist Schmerberg in a new way. At the same time, the title also refers to his return to the Heitsch Gallery, which presented its very first exhibition in 1994 with Ralf Schmerberg's "Stamm der weissen Krieger" (Tribe of White Warriors). His unconventional way of seeing and understanding the world has since made him one of the most productive visual artists of the present day. Be it Berlin districts, brightly colored sceneries from his travels in India or plant worlds and forests that radiate a unique tranquility - the camera is Ralf Schmerberg's constant companion and captures the beauty of the moment. Selected works from his visual diary of the last fifteen years can now be seen in the Heitsch Gallery.
The exhibition is presented within the framework of the new gallery concept FUTURE LAB, in which the classic gallery is extended by a laboratory and a communication platform for creative people. Live streamings, digital moderated artist talks and virtual exhibitions offer a deeper insight into the gallery and behind the scenes of artistic creation. Please feel free to visit our VIRTUAL EXHIBITION on Ralf Schmerberg! Our digital BOOKLET also provides more information about the participating artists of the Heitsch Gallery.
We look forward to welcoming you to our exhibition and to the Open Art!
