Exhibition

Figurative representations, which thanks to their motivic range refer to various social milieus as well as basic human emotions, are the main subject of both the famous sculptor Ernst Barlach (1870-1938) and his temporary student Hans Wewerka (1888-1915).

Wewerka, who was born in what is now the Czech Republic, attended the ceramics school in Höhr in 1905 while Barlach was working there as a teacher. Barlach's teaching and work inspired Wewerka in his artistic work, so that Barlach, along with the Dutchman Joseph Mendes da Costa (1863-1939) and the German Rudolf Bosselt (1871-1938), became an important stylistic model for his young student. Between 1905 and 1914, Wewerka created fifty small-format stoneware sculptures that tell of his observations of everyday life and public life in individual depictions. The First World War ended the promising career of the young ceramist. Wewerka died at the age of 27 in a field hospital in France.
The exhibition presents Wewerka's surviving works to the public for the first time, and selected works by Barlach, Bosselt and da Costa impressively illustrate their role models for the budding sculptor. In addition, the intensely colored vases and punch bowls that Barlach created in cooperation with the Keramische Werkstätten Mutz from 1903 onwards tell of his own attempts to gain a foothold as a ceramist.
