Curator Angelika Littlefield talks about the works of her great aunt Angelika Hoerle whose short life blazed across the Cologne arts scene. Angelika shows how the artistic, political and social life in a time of tremendous flux finds its way into Angelika Hoerle’s small, intense works. According to Littlefield, “Family stories show new perspectives on Max Ernst and other artists working in Cologne at the time and they tie Angelika Hoerle’s works to our society and the arts today.”
