“I have no talent. If I look at the others, I don’t see any, either. I am in good company.” These were the words of Georg Baselitz, one of Germany’s finest contemporary artists. Though his first exhibition was in 1963 in West Berlin, it wasn’t until 1969 that he created the first of his upside-down paintings, which lead the viewer to contemplate the technique more than the subject itself. This utter shift in visual language earned Baselitz an international breakthrough.
Presenting the evolution of Georg Baselitz’s work, including his painting and his work in drawing and sculpture, this Art Edition also features interviews between the art dealer Franz Dahlem, the author Peter Moritz Pickshaus, and the artist, as well as the manifesto “The Armamentarium of a Painter.”
