Georg Baselitz & Benjamin Katz: The Direction is Right

Edited by Detlev Gretenkort.

Postwar East German Neo-Expressionist Georg Baselitz and Belgian photographer Benjamin Katz have been close friends and artistic colleagues for close to five decades. Over the past two years, Baselitz has engaged in a reworking of his early paintings--using a more direct style, a lighter and quicker manner, in large formats. In this volume, Baselitz's new works are juxtaposed with photographs by Katz, who has taken hundreds of portraits of the artist and his working environment over the past half century. In fact, it was Katz who, in 1963, organized Baselitz's first solo exhibition in the newly founded Berliner Galerie together with Michael Werner. This legendary exhibition caused a scandal and made the artist famous overnight.
