Ursula Jaeger and Anka Kröhnke - Two masters of tapestry

Exhibition at Worpsweder Kunsthalle
19 November 2017 to 4 March 2018


Ursula Jaeger
(* 1935, Schwerin) cultivates a craftsmanship from the Middle Ages. She studied at the master school for arts and crafts in Berlin and became a diploma designer for picture weaving. After five years in the USA, she founded her own artist's workshop in Bremen in 1973 and received lectures such as prizes for her modern, Bauhaus-inspired concept of the Gobelin tapestry in the processing of texts and watercolors in a material mix. Through her interest in cultural history, she also came to sacred subjects, which she sees as a metaphor and interprets in a current context.

Anka Kröhnke
(* 1940, Berlin) came from a great artist family. She studied in Berlin to start a artist's workshop there, later in Hamburg. A lecture, museum exhibitions and prizes followed. Since moving to Kühlungsborn in 2003, she has been running a family museum with her own artist's workshop, in which she is experimenting and creates distinctive "wall collages" in strong colors.
