room 22

A slapping between two whitewashed brick walls with Ernst Ludwig Kirchner's paintings in room 21 on the upper floor of the Fridericianum, opens the view into room 22. There the work "Yellow-Red-Blue" by Bauhaus teacher Wassily Kandinsky can be seen in front of a black wall. In addition to the obvious color contrast, another aspect of the exhibition design is striking: the hanging of the works on puristic, black metal rods makes them float in front of the wall.
