The title of the exhibition "Katja Meirowsky - Back to the City" refers to the artist's series of charcoal drawings of the same name from 1947 and to her return to Berlin twice: in 1945 from Polish exile and in 2000 from her almost five-decade stay on the island of Ibiza.


The multi-talented artist Katja Meirowsky created an extensive body of painterly work, wrote poetic texts and had acting talent. Thus, in 1949, in the spirit of optimism of the post-war years, she was one of the founding and ensemble members of the legendary Berlin artists' cabaret "Die Badewanne", in which her close friends, the sculptor Waldemar Grzimek and the painter Werner Heldt, as well as Jeanne Mammen, Alexander Camaro and Heinz Trökes also took part.

As early as 1951, Werner Heldt emphasised the artist's special position among the women painters and draughtsmen in Germany. He emphasised the outstanding compositions of her paintings and their special colouring. Since her exhibitions in 1945 and 1949 in the Berlin galleries Rosen and Bremer, her works have been presented in many international exhibitions, among others in Basel, Madrid, Florence, Stockholm, London, Chicago and New York.

Sculptures by Waldemar Grzimek (1918-1984), one of the most important sculptors of the post-war period, complement Katja Meirowsky's paintings in our exhibition. With his work, Grzimek continued the great tradition of the figurative Berlin school of sculpture and enriched it with pioneering ideas.

We cordially invite you to the vernissage on Friday, 2 September, at 6 pm. The musicologist Manuel Trökes, son of Heinz and Renée Trökes, close friends and companions of Katja Meirowsky, will give the laudatory speech.
