Art Talk Live: Corinne Wasmuht and German Painting


Corinne Wasmuht’s large-scale painting 50 U Heinrich-Heine Str. (2009) depicts a busy intersection of building facades, vehicles, pedestrians, vegetation, sidewalks, and shop windows. A meditation on the bustling German capital in the digital age, the painting belongs, as the artist has expressed, to “our collective global everyday life.” The work prompts key questions about national identity and painting’s role within it.

Led by:
Lynette Roth, Daimler Curator of the Busch-Reisinger Museum, Division of Modern and Contemporary Art
