Established in 1909, the Kunsthalle Mannheim in Germany has fascinated modern and contemporary art fans since. This year, the museum honours Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, one of the most significant painters of the early 20th century, with the exhibition Der doppelte Kirchner. Die zwei Seiten der Leinwand. The cooperative project between the Kunsthalle Mannheim, the Kirchner Museum Davos and the Ernst Ludwig Kirchner Archive in Wichtrach/Bern, emphasises Kirchner’s avant-garde approach to life and his liberated dealing with form and colour which revolutionised painting. The exhibition will thematise one extraordinary art phenomenon – Kirchner’s double-sided paintings as an independent artwork category.
