Gerlinde Beck

10.04. – 11.09.2016, in the 2-Raum

The metal sculptor Gerlinde Beck (born in Stuttgart in 1930, died in Mühlacker in 2006) is one of the key German artists of the twentieth century. Working with the Gerlinde Beck Foundation, Museum Art.Plus is presenting an exhibition of the artist's work in its 2-Raum.

Gerlinde Beck felt a close affinity with dance, contemporary music and space. Her often large metal sculptures allow the viewer to experience movement and spatial sensitivity - both visually and physically. Her sculptures transform the individual figure into dynamic formations of movement and line that become sculptural choreographies of space.

Throughout her career, Gerlinde Beck complemented her sculptures with architecture-related works and works for public spaces. Parallel to her sculptural oeuvre, she created a sizeable body of works on paper.

The exhibition in Donaueschingen presents sculptures, reliefs and drawings from different phases of the artist's career, spanning the period from the 1950s to the 1990s.
