Friedrich Vordemberge-Gildewart: To the Absolute through the Abstract

The publication is divided into text and album parts. It contains statements by Arta Valstar-Verhoff, who has been involved in the artist’s work since the mid-1980s, representing the Vordemberge-Gildewart Foundation, and Dietrich Helms, retired art professor at the Hochschule für bildende Künste in Hamburg, who was the first to undertake a comprehensive study of the artist’s legacy. In addition, the book includes an interview with August Vordemberg, the painter’s nephew and his last living relative, a selection of his writings (translated into Polish and English for the first time), a calendar and literature on the subject, prepared by the publication editor Delfina Jałowik, and an essay by Maria Anna Potocka.
