041010: Jewish Museum Else Lasker-Schüler – The Pictures

Jewish Museum Else Lasker-Schüler – The Pictures 08.09.10 - 09.01.11 The Expressionist and the Prince Enter Prince Yusuf of Thebes. He peeps out from between the folds of black curtains. In the exhibition, the visitor enters a sort of stage room in which the characters of Else Lasker-Schüler (1869 - 1945) are exhibited. The presentation has been chosen appropriately, but the woman of letters and the artist played with her own production and different identities, both in her poetical and in her artistic work. Thus she created the world of Prince Yusuf of Thebes who turned into a kind of Alter Ego for her. Else Lasker-Schüler was a shimmering figure in the Berlin art scene from before the close of the 19th century right up to the time of eviction by the National Socialists in 1933. Her pictures were classified as degenerated. Many were lost in the mayhem of war, which certainly also contributed to the fact that her artistic works fell into oblivion and to this day still stand within the shadow of lyricism. Now, the pictures - comprising 150 drawings, collages, drawings in letters and hand-colored lithographs which, for the first time, show a comprehensive overview of the artistic creation and fantastically colorful world of the expressionist artist - are brought together in “Else Lasker-Schüler. The paintings“. In parallel, a first catalogue raisonné has published by Ricarda Dick, who is also the exhibition’s curator. The exhibition gives an impressive picture of the artist’s integration into her times. One perceives how her work assimilated and was influenced - not only by actual trends and currents such as, for example, primitivism and orientalism - but also by the creations of her artist colleagues, among them Franz Marc with whom she had a close friendship. The portrayal of Prince Yusuf, which constitutes the main theme complex of her graphic works, was developed in broad outlines subsequent to the extensive Egyptian Exhibition in Berlin in 1913. He combines references to Jewish, Islamic, Christian (= Josef) and ancient Egyptian worlds and exhibits differing cultural spheres such as Lasker-Schüler herself.
