Norbert Schwontkowski

Dass ich ein Maler war

In honor of the internationally active Bremen painter, who died in June, the Weserburg is showing a selection of works from the collections and loans from private collections. The Weserburg and the Study Center for Artists' Publications will present paintings, drawings, prints, and books by the artist. Included are never-before-seen early works from the 1980s and two equally unknown linocut and monotype series. Consistently striking here is the formal inventiveness, subtle humor, confident use of text and language, and a penchant for spirituality in Schwontkowski's oeuvre.

Werner Büttner

Gemeine Wahrheiten

With the retrospective "Werner Büttner. Gemeine Wahrheiten" (Werner Büttner: Common Truths), the Weserburg is presenting an extensive show of works by the Hamburg-based artist. Together with Martin Kippenberger and Albert Oehlen, Werner Büttner has had a lasting influence on the German art scene since the early 1980s. Paintings, drawings, collages and sculptures bear witness to Büttner's ingenuity, irony, but also biting mockery of social realities. The exhibition highlights the importance of Werner Büttner in relation to the development of German painting in the late 20th century, which he significantly influenced.
