Work exhibition in the old city hall Marzahn

The Old Town Hall Marzahn dedicates a large exhibition to the painter Rudolf Hübler (1928 - 2018). The work show presents a cross-section of the architecturally and technically inspired works of the painter on several floors in the Old Town Hall Marzahn. The curators are Martina Nußbaum and Niels Beugeling. The focus here is on works associated with the artist's last thirty creative years in Berlin-Biesdorf.

In the early 1990s, the painter Rudolf Hübler settled in Biesdorf. The works created here in the following years primarily reflect impressions he gathers on his forays through Marzahn. After his time in West Berlin, Hübler was fascinated by the prefabricated buildings of the 1970s with their abstract vertical and horizontal lines. This architecture, reduced to the essential, occupies a prominent place in his work. In the 1960s and 1970s, Hübler helped shape the Berlin art scene and stands not least as an example of a generation of artists in divided Berlin.

In the 1970s, Hübler was a founding member of Gruppe Plus. Together with Rolf Fässer, Detlef aus dem Kahmen, Gerald Matzner and Brigitte Stamm he has numerous exhibitions in Germany and abroad. His works are now in important collections, such as those of the Neue Berliner Kunstverein and the Akademie der Künste in Berlin. In the course of his work, Rudolf Hübler has devoted himself primarily to large-format paintings and drawings.

These are mainly architectural and industrial landscapes, landscapes in black, white, gray and brown, which depict life in the city in a surrealistic way, as it were, and show people at best as passers-by. The debate about architecture, building and the city is currently being intensively conducted again in Berlin. The exhibition also makes a contribution to this debate.
