Barbara Thumm Gallery represents Anna Oppermann’s (1940 – 1993) estate since the beginning of 2010.
From September 11th to October 30th 2010 Barbara Thumm Gallery will present one of Anna Oppermann´s major “ensembles”: “Being an Artist (Drawing from Nature, for Example, Linden Blossom Petals), 1969-1985”. This ensemble was shown 1977 in two parts. The main piece was shown at documenta 6, while a further smaller addition was shown at Kunsthalle Hamburg. At gallery Barbara Thumm, these two separate parts were reunited for the first time and reinterpreted in a large format installation by the Anna Oppermann expert Ute Vorkoeper.
