Utopia and Futurism

Written by Sabine Küper on . Posted in All Posts, Events

Wenzel Hablik’s (1881–1934) works are an explosion of colours, topics and styles. The Check-German artist was one of the Expressionists, who created futuristic architectural spaces and landscapes. He was mainly inspired by nature and the German Romantic. Motives from fairytales and objects like crystals are formed to paintings of crystal palaces or castles with water games and crowns out of clouds. 

Journeys to destinations like Anatolia made him integrate forms of ottoman tombs or seljuk patterns into his works.

Hablik was one of the important artists around the Bauhaus movement in the 1920th in Berlin. He designed wallpapers, clothes and created his Villa in Itzehoe as a “Gesamtkunstwek” (Total artwork). He believed that every element of human existence should be conceptually designed. The Martin Gropius Bau Museum in Berlin is showing a solo show of 300 paintings, drawings and objects until the 14th of January 2018.
