GILDED investigates the use of gold as a (colour) material, its fusions and reinterpretations and looks with artistic positions at and behind the gilded surfaces and objects, which are no longer necessarily about the representation of eternity and wealth. Or is this magical relationship today merely deformed into other symbols and signs of recognition?

Jürgen Wittdorf (1932-2018)
and Veneta Androva, Norbert Bisky, Harry Hachmeister, Bettina Semmer
September 4, 2022 – January 31, 2023

Wittdorf was a master of creative nuances. In addition to his masterful woodcuts, he is also known for numerous book illustrations as well as for his expressive portraits and nude drawings. His breakthrough as an artist in the GDR came with his depictions of young people, who were not idealised as workers and peasants but portrayed as seekers with all their wishes and longings. What earned Wittdorf the reproach of "westernisation" from the authorities was enthusiastically celebrated by the youth. Schloss Biesdorf pays tribute to Jürgen Wittdorf in a comprehensive presentation. Wittdorf's works are juxtaposed in the exhibition with contemporary positions.
