Der Blaue Reiter at Lenbachhaus – Munich
Visited by Henning Høholt and Tomas Bagackas
MUNICH/GERMANY: The famouse artists group Der Blaue Reiter – a magnifique group of visual artists, painters, sculptures, which was started in Munich in 1911, is to be found at the new restaured Lenbachhaus in Munich, which reopened in 2013, where several hundred of its works is on view, and many thousand more is stored.
The group was founded by a number of Russian emigrants, including Wassily Kandinsky, Alexej von Jawlensky, Marianne von Werefkin, and native German artists, such as Franz Marc, August Macke and Gabriele Münter.
They considered that the principles of the Neue Künstlervereinigung München, a group Kandinsky had founded in 1909, had become too strict and traditional.
PAINTING EXPOSITIONS and ART MUSEUMS all over the world:
Of course, in many of the leading cities, “all” of them are presenting the best their curators have the ideas are this museums high lights, and it is always a pleasure for an art critic/journalist to visit these leading museums. However, what we, in Kulturkompasst, also enjoy is to visit the museums, who in one or another way are presenting larger collections of one single artist, or a group of artists, as for example the Klinger sculptures and pictures in Leipzig, the Cranach pictures in several south german museums, Van Gogh in Amsterdam, Claude Monet in Paris, Edvard Munch in both National Gallery and Munch Museum in Oslo, and so on. Therefore we on this reportage visit to Munich, the second Munich visit this year, are focusing on Der Blaue Reiter collection presented at the newly restored (2013) Lenbachhaus museum in Munich.
Gabriele Münter, the former partner of Wassily Kandinsky – one of the group’s best known artists – donated her collection to the city of Munich in 1957.:
Der Blaue Reiter
Some representatives from our media house Kulturkompasset visited a famouse Die Brücke presentation and exposition in Dresden and its surroundings several years ago, where we were brought out to the actual places where some of these, now iconic paintings, was being painted, or sketches has been taken by the painters, and then the paintings were being developed and made finished in the artists studios. This was extraordinary, through outstanding art professors to get this view in to how the Die Brücke artists worked to reach their goals.

The Villa and its magnifique sculpture and activity garden
Lenbachhaus is a nineteenth-century villa in Italianate style located in Munich’s museum quarter.
. But a small café or a possibility to by an ice-cream had been perfect.
The house is a fantastic frame for art, a large presentation of Der Blaue Reiter, and in addition an excellent portrait gallery, and also, right now a Rockefeller Feinstein exposition until 18th September. But what fascinated mostly at our visit today at Lenbackhaus, was how interesting the museum has planned its exposition –
A theme that runs through all divisions of the collection is the artist’s rooms. The great majority of these rooms were designed specifically for the Lenbachhaus. Other galleries, meanwhile, unfold a fascinating dialogue between different artistic positions.
The Lenbachhaus museum seek to arrange the works in its extensive collections in forever new groups, bringing out unexpected interactions and trying out different forms of presentation as we implement an exhibition program that draws its energies from the tension between the collection’s foundations and novel and contemporary developments. Every visit to the Lenbachhaus promises a richly varied experience of works from our holdings—and no two visits will ever be the same.
The New Lenbachhaus
However, Eliassons piece of art is only one of the interesting details, which is renewing this beautiful museum and as a piece of art itself giving even a new dimension to how it is possible through artistic interior details, to give the art world a new dimension, as it too was the wish when Die Blaue Reiter started their group in 1911.
