This illustrated talk by Monica Bohm-Duchen, initiator and Creative Director of the Insiders/Outsiders Festival, will focus on the experiences of the émigré artists who found refuge in this country in the wake of Hitler’s accession to power in 1933, examining not only their achievements and legacy, but also the challenges – not to say obstacles – they faced on their arrival.
Artists to be discussed include Ludwig Meidner, Josef Herman, Hans Feibusch, Harry Weinberger, Martin Bloch, Hilde Goldschmidt and Heinz Koppel as well as those who came as children, such as Frank Auerbach, Lucian Freud, Eva Frankfurther and Gustav Metzger, and ‘second generation’ artists such as Ruth Rix and Jenny Stolzenberg whose work grapples with the complex legacy of their parents’ histories.
