(en) agamsterdam: Domela Nieuwenhuis-day November 19, 2017 at the Domela Nieuwenhuis Museum (nl) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 20 Sep 2017 09:54:34 +0300

Sunday, November 19th, the Domela Nieuwenhuis Day will be held at the Domela Nieuwenhuis Museum in Heerenveen again. This time it will be a special day, because then an exhibition will be opened dedicated to the commitment of the painter Melle. Below is more information. ---- The day looks like this: ---- 13.00 hours: tour of Bert Altena through the Museum ---- 14.30 pm: lectures to open the exhibition by Bert Altena about the political engagement of Melle and Koos Levy, the niece of Melle, about Melle as an artist. ---- The exhibition has been opened. Why this exhibition is organized by the Domela Nieuwenhuis Museum and what is being discussed in detail is explained in the following press release. ---- Melle's engagement (1908-1976), visionary painter

On 19 November, the Ferdinand Domela Nieuwenhuis Museum in Heerenveen opens an exhibition about the artist and painter Melle (1908-1976). Melle is often seen as a surrealist, but himself he called himself a visionary painter. Melle's work puts many people in front of riddles, even experts. His visions, the references to his youth in the Amsterdam armory district of Wittenburg, ships involved, countless animals and minutely drawn or painted plants, fallussen and vagina's. What did that mean, also offset by the time he lived? Did experiences from his youth play an important part?

To find out more about his young years and development of his work, the Ferdinand Domela Nieuwenhuis Museum opens the doors for an exhibition of the artist. Melle's work is in place. Melle's father was a fervent supporter of the social anarchist Ferdinand Domela Nieuwenhuis. Anarchist ideas got Melle and his two sisters were poured into the pots. In their puberty, those ideas were further formed by the anarchist youth group around the magazine De Moker. The drawings made by Melle for this group's magazine have always remained in the shadow of his postwar work. This also applies to the countless political drawings he made in the 1930's. Anti-colonialism, anti-fascism, pacifism and love for nature, which were strengthened during his maturity,

The exhibition specifically looks at what these pre-war views can be found in Melle's post-war work and how the pre-war commitment after 1945 has undergone a transformation. To this end, the artist's large and varied artist's work is done: drawings, charts, watercolors, paintings and embroidery. The pre-war work that had less attention until recently is emphatically present.

Melle himself has spelled the constituents through statements such as, " My work will be a big charge, which is presented in a well-arranged romantic way. '

The exhibition runs until March 5, 2018.
