Hans Ticha

Birthday pictures

Exhibition from August 15, 2020 - January 3, 2021

Hans Ticha is one of the most idiosyncratic, distinctive and non-conformist artists in Germany. Even before the fall of the Berlin Wall, his artistic language was influenced less by socialist realism than by modernism. Ticha is often referred to as a Pop Art artist of the GDR. However, this characterization does not go far enough. With his striking formal language, he exposed the propaganda in the GDR, which had become a phrase, with biting humor. He also created an impressive work in the field of illustration, also to the delight of a young readership. (Kornelia Röder)
Even after 1990 and his move to Hesse, Ticha has remained a critical observer of the times. One focus of our exhibition are the birthday pictures that Ticha created every year since 1993 for his wife Monika Funk.
Hans Ticha celebrates his 80th birthday in September - we congratulate him with this exhibition.
With the friendly support of Galerie LÄKEMÄKER Berlin/Wustrow.

Alfred Wegener Museum

Since 2009 the Alfred Wegener Museum in Zechlinerhütte belongs to our department.
As a child Alfred Wegener (1880-1930) spent his vacations there. He was a "Viking of science" who wanted to discover the secrets of nature with his own observations. He founded the theory of plate tectonics and undertook four trips to the polar region. He died during his great Greenland expedition in 1930.
The museum presents the life of the researcher and raises awareness of questions about climate change.
