Alexander Camaro and Breslau/Wrocław -
an Homage

Exhibition from October 19th, 2018
to March 10th, 2019

The Silesian Museum in Görlitz presents works by Alexander Camaro (1901-1992), an important artist of modernism. The exhibition is dedicated to themes and topics inspired by nostalgic memories of his childhood and youth in Breslau/ Wrocław, which had influenced Camaro’s work throughout his life. From 1920-1926, he studied at the Breslau/Wroclaw Academy of Arts and Crafts, taught by the legendary expressionist Otto Mueller, who he adored as a role model.

The Berlin Alexander and Renata Camaro Foundation has initiated the homage, providing some 30 works of pictorial art – large-size paintings, fine drawings and pastels – as well as texts, photographs and short film clips. They show Camaro not only as a painter, but also as a stage artist, a writer and a filmmaker.

A publication will be appearing together with the exhibition.
