K.H. Schmeißer's Paintings: "Is that a human being?"

K.H. Schmeißer's  Paintings: "Is that a human being?"
Type: Exhibition
Date: January 27th to March 22nd, 2015
Time: Saturdays and Sundays from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Venue: Former Rexingen Synagogue

The artist K.H. Schmeißer, born in Bad Wurzach in 1957, lives and works in Horb-on-Neckar. His preoccupying - almost exclusive - theme is the human figure. His work is an artistic study of the human form, its existence, its nature, its ambiguity. He paints an honest, unsparing picture of humanity, devoid of pretence or masquerade.

Since 2012  K.H. Schmeißer has been tackling the issue of German Nazi history and anti-Semitism. This emotional and intellectual involvement has had a recognizable influence on his paintings. His visits to exhibitions in the Jewish Prayer Room in Horb brought him into contact with the Association of Patrons and Friends of the Former Rexingen Synagogue. The Association, in cooperation with the Adult Education Institute of Freudenstadt, will exhibit his paintings in the former Rexingen synagogue from January 27th to March 22nd 2015, to mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

The exhibition will be opened on January 27th at 7.30 p.m. in the former Rexingen synagogue. K.H. Schmeißer will comment on his paintings. Jochen Brusch will play the violin.

Address: 16, Freudenstädter Straße
