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 “Couture” 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
