Hans Baluschek was a sharp observer, brilliant artist, and engaged chronicler of his period. Already early on, the painter, graphic artist, and illustrator confronted his audience with unusually realistic renderings of Berlin city life. He was interested in the consequences of industrialization, the living circumstances of the proletariat, poverty, hunger, and neglect in the lowest echelons of society in a large city. Defamed by Emperor Wilhelm II as a “gutter artist,” Baluschek ultimately found recognition at the exhibitions of the Berlin Secession as of 1899.

To mark the 150th anniversary of the artist’s birth, Bröhan-Musuem presents a comprehensive overview of his work spanning from the late nineteenth century to the Weimar Republic.
