  • Catalogue Essay

    “The industrial landscape of Leipzig’s lowlands, the melancholy of the factories lying fallow, the leftovers of military zones suddenly sent out signals that spread far beyond the inhabitant’s surroundings, exposing inner layers of an experience that had always been there, but could only be dealt with afterward. The 1960s East German climate of color and form, internalized during early childhood, proved to be a useful medium for this experience, as it spanned many bridges of time, to the present-day changes and other precarious phases of rebuilding Germany. A bustling personage—always seemingly involved in the myth of progress and yet frozen in the capacity of a prop—increasingly populated Rauch’s imagination, developed an arsenal of clothing, hairdos, and characteristics, until finally everything was there that the artist needed to paint his stories.” (H. Kunde, “Scattered Units", Neo Rauch Works on Paper, Germany, 2004, n.p.)
