Lotte Laserstein first made a name for herself in the thriving art scene of the Weimar era. Her career came to an abrupt halt in 1937 when she was forced to flee Germany for Sweden, where she fell into oblivion. The aim of this exhibition is to put Laserstein’s œuvre back in the spotlight.
Victor Vasarely is the brilliant main representative of European op art and a key figure of French post-war art, whose oeuvre roots in the Bauhaus teachings of the 1920s. The retrospective at the Städel Museum presents Vasarely’s work of six decades, which epitomizes a complex, labyrinthine modernism between avant-garde and pop culture.
