PICTORIAL PROCESS - Sculpture and Photogrpahy by Fritz Kühn 1945-1967
With about a dozen photographic works and an equal number of sculptures, the Kunsthaus Dahlem presents the artist Fritz Kühn (1910-1967). Trained as a artist blacksmith, Kühn opened his atelier-shop in Berlin-Bohnsdorf in 1937. His first photgraphic work -10 Jahre Kunstschmiede Fritz Kühn – was published in 1947, in which he formulated his examination of iron as an artistic material. Kühn quickly gained renown as a metall sculptor in postwar Germany, not only in the East but also in the Federal Republic. The exhibition honors Fritz Kühn as a photographer, craftsman and sculptor within an East-West German context.
