|| UPCOMING EXHIBITION ||⁠

Finally! Enrique Martínez Celaya’s new group of works – inspired by the venerated Käthe Kollwitz (1867–1945) – has arrived at the gallery and we are excited to share another glimpse of this surprising and utterly compelling new cycle. ⁠

While at first glance the differences between these two artists could hardly be greater, on closer inspection, a delicate thread – spun from themes of loss and healing – connects the two oeuvres. Whereas Kollwitz’s works circled around the human devastation brought about by war and the loss of her own son in particular, Celaya’s images often oscillate between a sense of belonging and exile, which is rooted in his experience as a migrant. ⁠

“Kiss of Air” is testament to Martínez Celaya’s deeply felt kinship with Kollwitz, transmuting her intimate study “Abschied” (Farewell) into a universal metaphor for tenderness and shelter.⁠

Eugen Schönebeck - Catalogue Raisonné Vol 1

|| PUBLICATION ||⠀
⁠⠀
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s most intriguing of them all? While some enquirers may beg to differ, for us it is without a doubt #germanpostwarart legend Eugen Schönebeck. Like many of his better-known contemporaries, #eugenschönebeck began his artistic training in former East Germany. Dissatisfied with the formulaic artistic and political doctrines preeminent in the young GDR, he took the plunge and moved to West-Berlin in 1955. Enrolling at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste – today Universität der Künste (UdK) – he embarked on an artistic journey influenced by both the figurative traditions of the east and the new abstract style championed in the west. In doing so, he prefigured much of what was to become a hallmark of not only German post-war art. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We are delighted to present the first volume of Eugen Schönebeck’s catalogue raisonné with a comprehensive text by Pay Matthis Karstens. The catalogue is available from us via mail order or can be purchased from Buchhandlung Walther König Berlin. Follow the link in our bio. ⁠⠀

Hortensia Mi Kafchin - A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

|| NEWS ||
⁠⠀
🔮 Head over to Museum Villa Rot to watch Marco Hompes’ video-introduction to Hortensia Mi Kafchin’s “Self-Fulfilling Prophecy” presently on view at Villa Rot as part of “ANDERSWELTEN. Malerei heute – OTHERWORLDLY. Painting today.” ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The exhibition, which was scheduled to open in November of last year, remains closed to the public due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions. However, its original closing date has now been pushed back to the 6th of June and with a bit of luck, it will open its doors to visitors again later in the year. We keep our fingers crossed.⁠⠀

|| UPCOMING EXHIBITION ||

Our gallery space is now closed for the winter break. We’ll be back in early February with a one-of-a-kind collaboration. ⁠

For his second exhibition with Galerie Judin, Cuban-born and Los Angeles-based artist Enrique Martínez-Celaya has joined forces with Berlin collector couple Gudrun and Martin Fritsch, co-founders and former directors of the Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum Berlin – and owners of a comprehensive collection of works by the arguably most famous female German artist. Martínez-Celaya is well known for his fascination with German culture. While themes from German philosophy, literature, and art have appeared in his oeuvre time and again, Kollwitz has held her own special place in his pantheon of personal heroes for over 30 years. Presented with the opportunity of entering a close dialogue with two fellow Kollwitz devotees, he jumped at it and created a body of works inspired by the Fritsch collection. ⁠

The resulting exhibition will feature 9 new paintings, 2 drawings, and a sculpture by Martínez-Celaya alongside 23 works by Käthe Kollwitz. ⁠

Enrique Martínez-Celaya: The Child’s Song, 2020, Oil and wax on canvas, 294.6 × 381 cm⁠

|| GUIDED TOUR ||

This Saturday, Swiss artist Christoph Hänsli and curator Franziska Stern-Preisig offer a guided tour of Hänsli’s retrospective “Die Konferenz der Dinge” (The Conference of Things) at Basel’s Villa Renata. On view are works from the artist’s peerless oeuvre spanning almost three decades. ⁠

Renowned for his intimate portrayals of everyday objects, in 2014 Hänsli began to pick up discarded, lost – or renegade? – screws from the sidewalks of numerous metropoles he traveled through. Assorted into groups by city and time, he painted their life-size, delicately rendered likenesses. The resulting “Verloren” (Lost) series serve up unconventional snapshots of the places Hänsli visited, but also a registry of – potentially vital – components gone astray.

Christoph Hänsli’s “Die Konferenz der Dinge” is on view at Basel’s Villa Renata until the 13th of December. For tour times and bookings contact Villa Renata. ⁠

Christoph Hänsli - die Konferenz der Dinge / Villa Renata Basel

|| LAST CHANCE || ⁠

Swiss artist Christoph Hänsli’s painterly universe is characterized by tongue-in-cheek humor. A group of Dyson vacuum cleaners arranged in a half-circle is named “The Congress.” An inconspicuous medicine cabinet – the like you’ll encounter in many a household – is referred to as a “Fortress.” And a seven-meter wide, trompe-l'œil rendering of a WWII emergency generator’s control panel becomes a testament to life’s inevitable fragility. If you are staying in or near Basel this month, don’t miss your chance to chuckle at these deeply human incongruities. What better way to beat the winter – and COVID-19 – blues!?⁠

Christoph Hänsli’s “Die Konferenz der Dinge“ is on view at Villa Renata Basel until the 13th of December. A catalogue published by Scheidegger & Spieß is available. ⁠

Please check for opening times and health regulations before visiting.

Exhibition catalogue "Tom of Finland – Made in Germany"

|| PUBLICATION ||⁠⠀
⁠⠀
“Producing this book was an absolute inevitability, triggered by the research we had undertaken for what started out as a modest exhibition about Tom of Finland’s early collectors and companions. Little did we know that the wealth of information that we would gather from many of the key figures of those crucial years would enable us to rewrite the story of the birth of an artist.” Juerg Judin & Pay Matthis Karstens⁠⠀
⁠⠀
At last, the wait is over. Accompanying the hugely successful exhibition on “Tom of Finland – Made in Germany,” this gem of a catalogue is available now and – thanks to fantastic Skira Editore – is coming to a bookstore near you. As always, you can also purchase this publication directly from us – either in situ or, if you are in the EU, via mail order. ⁠⠀

|| EXHIBITION ||⁠

Besides depicting an auspicious tryst on a north German motorway – note the cane in the hitchhiker’s right boot, the handcuffs dangling from his belt loop, and the telltale number on the distance stone – this 1976 drawing by Tom of Finland also hints at the place of residence of two early patrons of the artist and the bar they founded and named after him – Tom’s Saloon. From 1973 onwards, the Hamburg entrepreneurial couple Harald Tangermann and Peter Daun, commissioned over 40 works from the Finn, resulting in the largest and arguably best Tom of Finland collection in private hands today. On display in its entirety for the very first time, the Tangermann Collection can be viewed at Galerie Judin until the 19th of December. ⁠

|| NEWS ⁠||

Staying in or passing through Southern Germany this autumn and winter? Consider visiting the magnificent Villa Rot Museum in Burgrieden – situated halfway between Munich and Stuttgart. Two works by our artist Hortensia Mi Kafchin are going to feature in their upcoming exhibition “ANDERSWELTEN. Malerei heute – OTHERWORDLY. Painting today” on view from the 1st of November to the 21st of February. ⁠

The larger of the two, “Self-fulfilling Prophecy,” pictured here, is a seminal work in the artist’s oeuvre, marking the crossing of a very personal Rubicon. Having undergone hormone therapy, the artist has left behind her male past – represented by the skeletal figure in the foreground – and is moving on to a brighter, female future, which is also expressed in the work’s new and vibrant palette. ⁠

Follow this link https://www.zeit.de/2020/38/christoph-haensli-maler-atelier-bilder-schweiz to read Katja Nicodemus‘ extensive article on our artist, Christoph Hänsli. Hänsli’s affectionate depiction of commonplace objects lends a surprising gravity to the omnipresent and yet commonly overlooked companions of our everyday existence. Freed from their purpose and removed from their native surroundings, they reveal themselves to the viewer afresh – or indeed for the very first time – at once sparking a joyous visual experience as well as a strange melancholy.⁠

Christoph Hänsli’s works will be on display in a survey exhibition of the artist’s oeuvre at Basel’s Villa Renata from 24 October to 13 December. ⁠

Tom of Finland: Tom’s Men

|| PUBLICATION ||
⁠⠀
While we are busy putting the finishing touches on the forthcoming monograph published on the occasion of our current exhibition “Tom of Finland – Made in Germany” – shedding new light on the artist’s formative German years – we thought we’d post a little treat for you in the meantime. For those of you who weren’t able to attend the opening and cannot make it to Berlin this autumn and winter, there are still a few copies of this 2017 publication available via mail-order. Published on the occasion of our first Tom of Finland exhibition, it provides a glimpse into the artist’s creative process by bringing together a selection of his preparatory drawings, which form the basis of Tom’s now-iconic body of works. ⁠⠀

Tom of Finland – Made in Germany

|| EXHIBITION ||

Galerie Judin is proud to present its second exhibition with works by the trailblazing Tom of Finland and cordially invite you to the opening on Friday 11 September from 6 to 9 pm. We are open all weekend from 11 to 6 pm. ⁠

Rising to fame under the pseudonym of Tom of Finland, Touko Laaksonen’s (1920 – 1991) iconic depiction of proud and life-affirming gayness provided decisive impulses for the international gay movements from the 1960s onwards. But although we instinctively associate his sensuous portrayals of self-confident and carefree cops, cowboys, farmers, and men in black leather with the USA, it was Hamburg’s buoyant gay scene of the early 1970s and the close bonds with its central exponents that launched his stellar ascent to gay icon status. For Tom’s centennial, Galerie Judin is devoting a museal exhibition with more than 60 loans – many of them on view for the very first time – and a comprehensive exhibition catalog available later this year to these formative German years. ⁠

|| FROM OUR VIEWING ROOMS ||

Philipp Fürhofer’s work is an expression of two competing yet complementary passions: art and music. Faced with the choice of becoming a professional pianist or training as a visual artist, Fürhofer decided on the latter – starting out as a figurative painter. However, his love of music – and particularly that of opera – led him to pursue a parallel career in stage design, creating award-winning sets for many of the world’s foremost opera houses. Named after Wagner’s eponymous opera, the 2017 work “Rheingold” incorporates strategies the artist acquired in these endeavors: captivating the viewer by expanding the picture plane into space and endowing the work with the “rhythm” of two alternating states – lights on and lights off. “Rheingold” is now on display in our Viewing Rooms and can be seen by appointment.⁠

Hugo Wilson – Coincidental Truths⁠

|| EXHIBITION ||⁠

Realized in bronze, glazed ceramic, and terracotta, Hugo Wilson’s sculptures encapsule and potentiate the themes pervasive throughout his two-dimensional work. While the intricately detailed ceramic “Object 2” is reminiscent of an ornate limestone cave – referencing baroque grottos and playing with the era’s penchant for pastoral (faux) nature, the sprawling bronze “Trophy” turns the allure of a hunting trophy on its head. Attributes of worldly might and power seem to revolve around a gravitational force, that slowly erodes hierarchy – and meaning. Similarly, the untreated terracotta surface of “Pare 1” suggests the effacement of once legible detail by time. As three-dimensional finale of the show, “Renovate”, a unique bronze cast resembling a tree branch at first glance, tucks at the viewer’s subconscious, triggering an uncanny anthropomorphic recognition. ⁠

Hugo Wilson’s new body of works is on view at Galerie Judin until the 11th of July.⁠

Object 2, 2019, Ceramic, 62 × 51 × 48 cm⁠

|| FROM OUR VIEWING ROOMS ||⁠

Known for his intricate and moderately sized ink drawings – depicting invented inner spaces – John Kleckner turned to collage and painting a few years ago: “I no longer wanted to invent, I wanted to gather and arrange.” This new strategy led to a series of questions about the whole and the fragment, subject versus object, and context. In a 2017 conversation with Arturo Herrera, Kleckner elaborated on this approach that also informs the naming of his works: “When thinking of titles I’m attracted to the sound of a word as much as its definition. I treat words like fragments to be collaged, combining languages to amplify ambiguity and dislocation.“ John Kleckner’s “Remembird” is currently on display at our Viewing Rooms and can be seen by appointment. Contact us for further details. ⁠
