Event Details

On the occasion of what would have been his 90th birthday, Sfeir-Semler is enormously proud to present an exhibition that brings together early paintings from the 1960s with more recent works. A rare occurrence, this presentation puts in dialogue the various periods of the highly acclaimed artist and covers five decades of his work. Marwan Kassab-Bachi (b. 1934, Damascus, Syria – d. 2016, Berlin, Germany) known simply as MARWAN began his career after studying Arabic literature at the Damascus University. In 1957, he moved to Berlin where he attended the Hochschule für Bildende Künste. He very quickly integrated a group of German expressionist painters, working alongside artists such as Georg Baselitz and Eugen Schönebeck, and spent the rest of his life in Berlin where he became a professor at the Akademie der Künste.
