Art to All! Public model drawing class 2

Kirchner studied architecture and together with his colleagues Heckel and Rottluff he founded the group in Dresden aiming to surpass the boundaries of academic painting. While sharing the same stutio, the three artists developed similar painting styles based on the Van Gogh color scheme and Gaugen's fauvism. The expressive canvases enchant with their vivid colors and sharp edges, especially on the urban landscapes from Berlin, where the group was active until they fell apart.
Besides painting, Kirchner was also dealing with drawing, graphics, wood engraving (which was at the time forgotten technique), as well as with sculpture.
Alongside the landscapes, Kirchner's topics include nude paintings and portrays. His favorite model was Doris Grosse, whose series of nude paintings he created while staying at the lake Moricburg. On the public model drawing class the role of Doris Grosse will be given to Maja Atanasijević Zipa Yoma, whereas the class will be lead by the professors from the Academy.

The class will be held on the February 14th from 10-16h in the Big Gallery of KC Grad. It will be divided into two time slots: from 10-13h and from 13-16h. The participants can apply via e mail mail@gradbeograd.eu and pick their time slot. Participation cost is 200 rsd.

Pop up exhibition will take place on the same day at 19h and it will present the results of the class to the audience.
The movie screening of the documentary about Kirchner will take place at 20h.

The entrance to the movie screening is free of charge.

Zeichnen bis zur Raserei (Drawing until madness), a documentary about life and work of the painter Ernst Ludwig Kirchner

Kirchner was one of the founders of Die Brücke, German art group, and was one of the most significant expressionist pioneers.
A fascinating cinematic portrait about life and work of an exceptional artist. A film that shows us the person behind the artistic genius, and his mental struggles. Many of Kirchner’s paintings depict street scenery, and are deeply rooted in reality and everyday life. His own life on the other hand was a dramatic reaction to contemporary political events in Germany. As a volunteer in World War II Kirchner gets discharged, after suffering a mental breakdown. He moves to Berlin, a city that inspired his street scenery paintings, and after the rise of Nazism Kirchner relocates to Davos, Switzerland.
In 1933. he was one of many artists whose work was labeled degenerative by the Nazi ideology, and by 1937 more than 600 works by Kirchner were sold or destroyed.
This led to Kirchner’s suicide in 1938.

Screening of this film made possible by Goethe Institute in Belgrade. Subtitles by Vlada Milanović
