Bauhaus, Blauer Reiter, Biennale – Insights into the Estate of the Art Historian and Curator Ludwig Grote

Seminar Tuesday, 21.02, 6 pm

The art historian Ludwig Grote (1883-1974) was among the most passionate advocates for the rehabilitation of the "Third Reich" accursed artist. As a curator, in the postwar years he shaped Haus der Kunst's profile as a place of Modernism. Between 1949 and 1951 he organized a series of sensational, internationally acclaimed exhibitions, including "The Blue Rider" (1949), "Bauhaus Painters" (1950) and "Max Beckmann" (1951) for the Bavarian State Painting Collections in the building's west wing. Grote, who in 1951 was appointed director of the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, was also active on the international stage, serving as commissioner of the first West German contributions to the biennials of São Paulo and Venice.

The seminar provides insights into previously unpublished documents from Ludwig Grote's estate in the Deutsches Kunstarchiv. In addition to Grote's biography, the relationships and influences between his curatorial work at Haus der Kunst and the international biennials in São Paulo and Venice are also explored. Also discussed in the seminar are the estate's potentials and possibilities for art historical research.

By 2017, the Deutsches Kunstarchiv in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum will have electronically indexed Ludwig Grote's estate. With a total volume of just under 30 linear meters, the holding is one of the largest estates in the Deutsches Kunstarchiv. Of exceptional interest are Grote's contacts with the art market, his position as a curator and museum director and his connections to the artists of the Bauhaus.
