With “We Were in the Storm”, a “View into the Collection” accompanies an exhibition at Kunsthalle Bielefeld for the second time. Based on the themes of the temporary exhibition “Jacoba van Heemskerck. Uncompromisingly Modern”, the collection of the Kunsthalle Bielefeld is presented in a new way. In the process, previously unseen compilations and adjacencies emerge, bringing to light new and surprising aspects of the supposedly familiar artworks.
The “Sturm” was one of the most important collecting points of the avant-garde at the beginning of the 20th century. After founding a magazine under this title in Berlin in 1910, Herwarth Walden (1876-1941) and his second wife Nell Walden-Roslund (1887-1975) opened a gallery of the same name two years later. The art movements propagated were Expressionism, Futurism, Cubism, and later also Dadaism and Neue Sachlichkeit. The “Sturm” existed until 1932 and was a network that operated internationally and interdisciplinarily and also took women’s art into account from the beginning. “Blick in die Sammlung #2″ shows works by artists who were members of the “Sturm” or were exhibited there.
