22. June 2021 - 19. September 2021

"Eager are we to look," writes Friedrich Hölderlin in his hymn "Der Ister." After the long weeks of waiting, don't we feel the same way?

To mark its new beginning, the Kunstmuseum Singen is presenting a feast for the eyes: highlights and new additions to the collection. The exhibition spans around 100 years of art history on Lake Constance, in the Hegau region and in the German southwest, from the "artists on the Höri" to contemporary positions today.

If the name "Höri" has a special sound in the world of art today, then the peninsula that curves into the Untersee owes this to those painters, graphic artists and sculptors who found refuge on Lake Constance in the period from 1933 to 1945 and became at home there in the post-war period. After poets and painters had already discovered the place around 1900, they were followed from 1933 onwards by those who, threatened by National Socialist cultural policy and the aerial bombardment of the cities, made the "Höri" a special artists' place of "inner emigration" where modernity could survive.

The Singen Art Museum has its own collection of all the "Höri" artists and is able to embed them in the circle of those painters and sculptors who settled on Lake Constance as precursors or at the same time.

The partial exhibition on the ground floor of the art museum shows a comprehensive selection of works, including numerous new acquisitions, by Max Ackermann, Otto Dix, Erich Heckel, Curth Georg Becker, Helmuth Macke, Walter Herzger, Ferdinand Macketanz, Jean Paul Schmitz, Gertraud Herzger-von Harlessem, Hans Kindermann, Rudolf Stuckert and Rose Marie Schnorrenberg, but also by Julius Bissier, Franz Lenk, William Straube, Eugen Segewitz, Walter Waentig and many others.

Today, Lake Constance lies at the centre of a four-country region, where different currents and international influences from four riparian states - Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Liechtenstein - meet and mingle. So what could be more natural than to show the wealth of positions and artists to be found in the museum's collection of contemporary art from the Euregio of Lake Constance?

The range of the selection shown in the partial exhibition on the upper floor extends from expressive to reduced positions; from the classical genres of painting and graphic art to sculpture and installation and works with light. Among others, newly received works by Friedemann Hahn, Gerold Miller, Harald F. Müller, Eckhard Froeschlin, Jürgen Palmtag, Jo Rave, Beni Bischof, Gerhard Opitz, Werner Pokorny and Daniel Hausig will be shown.
