Ludwig Meidner (1884-1966) is an outstanding Expressionist and one of the most important Jewish artists of the 20th century. His drawings, paintings and literary works that register the upheavals and convulsions of his time have still not been researched comprehensively.
The symposium on Meidner presents the current status of scholarly Meidner research. It explores Meidner’s oeuvre and its reception as phenomena of contemporary history. A major focus is directed on the explicitly Jewish aspects of his work and their perception.
The conference is organized by the Jewish Museum Frankfurt’s Ludwig Meidner Archive in cooperation with the German Exile Archive 1933-1944 of the German National Library.
Attendance is free; please register at info(at)juedischesmuseum.de.
The lectures are in German or English; bilingual summaries of the lectures will be available.
