„Unter dem Radar.
Originalgrafische Kunstplakate aus Ostdeutschland seit 1975“


Since the 1970s, art through art has increasingly been advertised using original graphic posters, which in an edition of up to 100 copies in the GDR were not subject to any approval requirements. The exhibition, made possible by the Ostdeutsche Sparkassenstiftung together with the Sparkasse Leipzig, is now dedicated to these unique and hitherto little-noticed visual sources of printmaking beyond state-controlled culture.

Based on around 100 original graphic art posters from the collection of the Galerie am Sachsenplatz, supplemented by other items on loan, the museum gives an insight into countercultural initiatives and free spaces of art in East Germany.


On the one hand, the show focuses on artists who were mainly active in printmaking in the GDR. These include Angela Hampel, Michael Morgner, Max Uhlig and the Clara Mosch group. On the other hand, the posters present less well-known art locations and the lively, non-state-controlled exhibition system in East Germany from Ahrenshoop to Zwickau.


A diverse accompanying program with guided tours, discussions, lectures and printing workshops is planned.
