To mark the Bauhaus centenary, the MAKK will be presenting the work of avant-garde ceramic artist Margarete Heymann-Loebenstein and of sculptress and stage designer Marianne Ahlfeld-Heymann. Their work will be shown in a dialogue with colour studies, paintings, drawings and sculptures by Johannes Itten, Oskar Schlemmer, Wassily Kandinsky and László Moholy-Nagy from the museum’s own collection. With this exhibition, the MAKK retraces the work of two female artists born in Cologne to Jewish families: the cousins Margarete (1899-1990) and Marianne (1905-2003) Heymann. The exhibition title relates to the fact that 14 Cologne-born people spent some time at the Bauhaus. Up until now, with a few exceptions, their artistic legacies have not been generally known to the public.
