Explore the life and work of Felix Nussbaum from different perspectives with our panel of guest speakers.
About this event
'On the move with Felix Nussbaum'. The latest iteration of the international touring exhibition at Artcore Gallery shows 20 reproductions of the German-Jewish Surrealist Painter Felix Nussbaum, and tells the story of his life and work during World War two and personal journey during exile and eventually the Holocaust.
The exhibition originates in Derby's twin city Osnabrück and is touring different European countries to share the story of the artist, show his work to a wide audience and to preserve his legacy. The work is a powerful and insightful look at this important period in European history and of the human condition during war and crisis.
We have invited a panel of guest speakers to elaborate on and explore the work of Felix Nussbaum , to view this work from different perspectives. We hope that the discussion will reveal what the work means historically and how we can situate and relate to this today.
