Near­ly for­ty years af­ter the large ret­ro­spec­tive, the Mu­se­um Lud­wig will now pre­sent the oeu­vre of Ot­to Fre­undlich (1878–1943). With around eigh­ty ob­jects, the ex­hi­bi­tion traces the work, thought, and life of an artist who pro­duced not on­ly paint­ings and sculp­tures but al­so stained-glass win­dows and mo­saics, and who in a search­ing re­flec­tion on the lead­ing art move­ments of his time found his own path to ab­s­trac­tion—be­fore be­ing margi­nal­ized by the Nazis, de­nounced as “de­gen­er­ate,” and ul­ti­mate­ly mur­dered as a Jew.
