We are proud to announce the second solo show of works by Hanns Schimansky

Hanns Schimansky was born in 1949 in Bitterfeld, he lives and works in Berlin. His solo exhibition in 1990 in the Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin made an impact not only on the German art audience, but across the country’s borders as well. Important museum exhibitions followed in the 1990s, amongst others in Städtische Galerie, Museum Folkwang, Essen in 1991, Museum Spendhaus, Reutlingen in 1994, Sprengel Museum Hannover in 1998, Musee d Art et d Histoire, Neuchatel in 2000, and Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe in 2003. In 2008 his works were exhibited in the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and 2010 at Meisterhaus Kandinsky Klee in Dessau.
In spring 2014 Hanns Schimanskys work will be shown at Leonhardi Museum Dresden.
