  • Author: Ufan, Lee
    This catalogue accompanies the first comprehensive retrospective of the Korean painter & sculptor Lee Ufan in Germany. This monograph presents ample installation shots, as well as thorough scholarship on Ufan’s immense impact on the postwar art movements of Japan and Korea; how the artist’s philosophical writings shaped the collective Mono-ha (School of Things); and how his abstract paintings of the mid-1970s are emblematic of the Korean collective Dansaekhwa.The exhibition gathers around 50 works from the past five decades, featuring an extraordinary highlight. Rembrandt’s famous Self-Portrait with Velvet Beret (1634) from the Berlin Gemäldegalerie is shown for the first time at Hamburger Bahnhof alongside Lee’s expansive installation Relatum – The Mirror Road (2016–23). Ufan, who repeatedly refers to European roots in his corpus of works, enters into a multilayered dialogue with the Old Master.
