Screen prints with contemporary adaptations of selected works by Heinrich Zille
| Zille Museum - Berlin
at the Zille Museum in the Nikolai Quarter
The new special exhibition at the Zille Museum features screen prints of contemporary adaptations of Heinrich Zille's work.
Like no other, the painter, draughtsman and photographer Heinrich Zille captured the spirit, foibles, misery and wit of Berliners on paper.
His "Miljöh" is legendary and his pictures capture the speakeasies, grocers' shops, dance halls, brothels, living rooms and street scenes of Berlin. Zille's fame stems above all from the publications of his drawings in illustrated magazines.
In cooperation with tipBerlin, the idea of a Zille folder with silkscreen prints by various artists was born, which can now be seen in the Zille Museum.
