“JUNGE WILDE – EXPRESSIVE MALEREI IM BERLIN DER 80ER JAHRE” With works from the Kunstsammlung der Berliner Volksbank


The exhibition from 23.10.2022 till 26.03.2023 at the Barlach Kunstmuseum Wedel is dedicated to the so-called “Neuen Wilden”, the young generation of German artists who revived figurative painting in the early 1980s. Expression instead of intellect, pictoriality and narrative instead of minimalism – in the works of the “Neuen Wilden” one can sense a departure into the spheres of individual feeling and self-expression.
The original leitmotif of the Kunstsammlung der Berliner Volksbank has always been “Pictures of people – pictures for people”. As the main lender of this exhibition, it presents numerous positions of the “Neuen Wilden”, which form an ideal fund for the works of a generation of artists whose success story has meanwhile become an art-historical myth.

Among others, works by Elvira Bach, Luciano CasteIli, Christa Dichgans, Hartwig Ebersbach, Rainer Fetting, FRANEK, Dieter Hacker, Martin Heinig, Thomas Hornemann, Karl-Horst Hödicke, Brian Kelly, Bernd Koberling, Markus Lüpertz, Helmut Middendorf, A.R. Penck, Barbara Quandt, Salomé and Bernd Zimmer are represented.
