Hanna Bekker vom Rath:
A Rebel for Modern Art
24.02.24–16.06.24

The exhibition "Hanna Bekker vom Rath. A Rebel for Modern Art" sheds light on the life and work of a passionate collector, courageous exhibition organizer and enthusiastic mediator and dealer who worked tirelessly on behalf of modern art and artists. She had lifelong friendships with some of them - above all the artist and initiator of the Brücke-Museum Karl Schmidt-Rottluff. Bekker vom Rath supported him and other artist friends. She also offered them shelter and space to work in the "Blue House", her home in Hofheim am Taunus. During the National Socialist era, her courage was also evident in a series of the so called "secret" exhibitions of works by artists discredited by the National Socialists, which she organized in her private apartment in Berlin. A large number of loans convey a vivid picture of this extraordinary woman.
