Reading by Marian Stein-Steinfeld

Archiv Hanna Bekker vom Rath, Frankfurt/Main

Between 1940 and 1943, Hanna Bekker vom Rath, as a rebel for artists, held secret exhibitions in her Berlin studio apartment on Regensburger Strasse of the artists banned as “degenerate”. For the first time, the author of the biography will present Hanna Bekker vom Rath’s courageous activities, which have hardly been known so far, in Berlin. Since the death of her grandmother, Marian Stein-Steinfeld has built up the private archive Hanna Bekker vom Rath.

Having grown up in the legendary so-called “Blue House” of Hanna Bekker from the Rath in Hofheim am Taunus, Marian Stein-Steinfeld was able to personally encounter many artists such as Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Emy Roeder and Ida Kerkovius. After studying and working for ten years in Frankfurter Kunstkabinett at Börsenplatz, Marian Stein-Steinfeld decided to work as a freelance artist and participated in the conception of the Stadtmuseum Hofheim, where she also curated numerous exhibitions. As a research assistant, she worked several times for the Wiesbaden Museum, which today houses a large part of the extensive Hanna Bekker vom Rath collection. Most recently she wrote the biography of Hanna Bekker vom Rath as an “Agent for art and artists”. As director of the private archive Hanna Bekker vom Rath, she continues to look after her estate.

Public events are in German and included in the admission fee.
