Horst Janssen (1929 – 1995) would have celebrated his 90th birthday on 14 November 2019. The Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg is using this anniversary as an occasion to shed light on a lesser-known side of the artist’s work. Lebenskleckse – Todeszeichen (Splatters of Life – Signs of Death) shows Janssen’s images that deal with their own nascence and perishing: splatters, from which entire landscapes emerge; spots that merge into shadowy figures; holes that become the evening sun.
