From 13 – 16 June, von Bartha participates at Art Basel 2019 with a group booth of contemporary works by Imi Knoebel, Landon Metz, Boris Rebetez, Andrew Bick, Beat Zoderer, Terry Haggerty, Marianne Eigenheer and Karim Noureldin in dialogue with modern artists including Jean Tinguely, Sándor Bortnyik, Camille Graeser, Verena Loewensberg, Fritz Glarner and Joaquín Torres-García. The works present an insight into the parameters of geometric shapes, painterly gestures and balanced compositions.
A nod towards the Bauhaus’ enduring influence on the gallery, von Bartha displays a seminal painting by Sándor Bortnyik – the founder of the Budapest Bauhaus movement and a key figure for the Hungarian avant-garde movement – to mark the school’s centenary year. Titled Bildarchitektur (1924) and painted in the Hungarian architect Alfréd Forbát’s Bauhaus studio, the work is regarded as one of the most important paintings of the Hungarian avant-garde movement.
