Kunstmuseum Stuttgart dedicated a large retrospective to Willi Baumeister in 2013, showing his artistic creations in the context of his international contacts to artists and collectors. In this new exhibition, his works on paper are the main focus — many of the nearly 70 exhibits have seldom been shown in the past. The exhibition “on paper... works of willi baumeister” broadens our perspective on the comprehensive oeuvre of the Stuttgart artist.

Very few artists are as strongly associated with the German post-war era as Willi Baumeister (Stuttgart 1889 – 1955 ibid.). His commitment as a proponent of abstract painting in the 1950s and his work as an art theoretician have solidified this image over the decades. Kunstmuseum Stuttgart possesses a significant number of Baumeister’s works. Additionally, the Baumeister Archive has been located in the museum since 2005 and houses his complete written estate as well as a large part of his artistic creations. This exhibition is yet another measure of what “treasures” and “discoveries” the Archive (still) has in store for us.

The exhibition “on paper... works of willi baumeister” collects works on paper from the years 1919 to 1955. In a cross section, works of differing styles and categories are presented that give a vivid image of Willi Baumeister’s impressive versatility. The visitor will find screen prints, lithographs, etchings, drawings and sketches in the exhibition, in addition to designs for stage sets and typographical works, as well as photographs and archival documents.
