Guided tour with curator Thomas Röske through “The Life of Thought is Real After All” Else Blankenhorn – a Retrospective Exhibition

In the 100th anniversary year of Hans Prinzhorn's Artistry of the Mentally Ill, the Museum is offering the first in-depth look at the oeuvre of Else Blankenhorn (1873-1920). Else Blankenhorn is the only woman to whom Hans Prinzhorn wanted to dedicate a chapter in his Artistry of the Mentally Ill. Even a planned monograph never came to fruition. Today, she is considered the secret star of the collection, having been represented in 98 exhibitions since 1929. The retrospective will feature around 150 works from various subject areas, presenting the expressive, color-intensive diversity of her pictorial worlds. One focal point is the multitude of banknotes she produced, to fund the resurrection and care of buried lovers. She believed she had received this charitable task from the German Emperor Wilhelm II, her “husband in spirit.”
