“I Understand Only the Man Who Falls”
East European Influences in the Work of H.-H. Grimmling

Doris Liebermann

Deutsche Fassung


Painter Hans-Hendrik Grimmling was represented at the great Moscow-Berlin exhibition with early murals and a self-portrait that he created while still in the German Democratic Republic. Doris Liebermann spoke with him about his ambivalence towards the state decreed friendship with the Soviet Union, the serious encounter with Russian art and culture, and their influence on his work.
