Karl Hagedorn

The exciting contrast between man and machine is a

central theme in the works of Karl Hagedorn (* 1922, † 2005).

As in the painting “Casque Profile” from 1989, the human

figure is de-individualized, disassembled into parts and

integrated into its environment. The combination of

abstract organic and technical elements in bold colors

create exciting compositions that can always be

discovered in new ways. ET
