Jörg Immendorff died in 2007 at the age of only 61. He is undoubtedly one of the most internationally renowned and important German artists of the post-war period. Since the late sixties, he, who studied with Beuys in Düsseldorf, had dealt with contemporary political events and reacted to daily political events with his painting. In the mid-1980s, he created the famous 16-part cycle Café Deutschland, in which he staged his protagonists, from Erich Honecker to Berthold Brecht, from uniformed policemen to punks, in rich detail as if on a sombre stage, commenting on the division of Germany. Immendorff was celebrated as a visionary of German unity and chronicler of this country. He once reacted laconically to being labelled a political artist: “The themes always flew to me”. To this day, his art dealer Michael Werner commemorates Immendorff’s work, as recently as this year with the solo exhibition “Jörg Immendorff: LIDL Works and Performances from the 60s” in New York.
