Werner Berges zum Achtzigsten
03. December 2021 - 05. February 2022
Werner Berges would have turned 80 on December 7, 2021. We are taking his birthday as an opportunity to honor him and his work in this exhibition. The beginnings of his art go back to the sixties of the last century - a time of new beginnings, protests and a new art movement called Pop, which took its inspiration from the media. As a young student in West Berlin, Werner Berges joined the group “Großgörschen 35”. Women, “fashion dolls” and “star aunties” became the main motif of his art - and these were portrayed in an abstract way - such as flat, gridded or striped.
