K. H. Hödicke

K. H. Hödicke is considered a forerunner of the Neue Wilde (New Wild) painting movement of the 1980s. A formative figure for several generations of young artists, he taught at the Berlin University of the Arts until 2006. His multifaceted oeuvre includes painting, sculpture, objects, and experimental film. The source of inspiration for many of his works is the city of Berlin, where he has lived since 1957. The silkscreen Come Together from 1992 recalls the pogrom-like riots in Rostock-Lichtenhagen at the Central Reception Centre for Asylum Seekers and reflects Hödicke’s interest in societal developments. Recent exhibitions of Hödicke’s work include at: PalaisPopulaire, Berlin (2020); Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich (2020); Berlinische Galerie, Berlin (2013); Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin (2011); Weserburg Museum für moderne Kunst, Bremen (2009); Gropius Bau, Berlin (2003; 1997; 1982).
