Press release from: Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund, Baden-Baden

On February 28 2009 at 11:00 am the Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund will open its doors to the public.
Authorities and representatives of the media are invited at 10:00 am for a preview of the Kunstmuseum and its extraordinary exhibition: Frida Kahlo “a Ribbon around a Bomb”.
Over 100 paintings will be shown in the 600 sqm exhibition space. This is the most complete Frida Kahlo exhibition of all times.
The visitors will be able to follow the entire life and works of the Mexican artist from the first “Self-portrait in a Velvet Dress” to her last Still Life “Viva La Vida”.
The paintings, licensed replicas from: © Banco de México Diego Rivera & Frida Kahlo Museums Trust / VG Bild-Kunst, Bonn 2008, are painted by master artists with the original materials (oil on canvas, oil on metal and glas), in the original sizes.

The exhibition will offer a complete experience of Frida Kahlo paintings and her life’s context. In addition to her work, clothes and jewelry will be shown. The visitors will also have a feeling of the garden of the Casa Azul (The Blue House: the family house of Frida Kahlo) with its Aztec pyramid, pre-columbian figures, exotic plants.

The Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund is located in an old factory building of unique architectural style in Baden-Baden, Germany thus establishing the first building block of an art space out of the ordinary.
Baden-Baden, Germany will co-host the upcoming NATO Summit on April 3rd-4th 2009.

The Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund is a privately owned art museum dedicated to showing monographic works.
The Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund exihibits only the works of one artist at the time, whereby over 70% of the work of one artist is shown. The objective of the Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund is to offer the visitors a complete view of the entire work of one artist, in this way it is possible to follow the artist’s development, to discover the different phases the painter goes through in his/her life: from lack of direction to new inspiration.

The Vision of the Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund is to offer the visitors a cultural experience that covers all the senses, and an environment that touches not only the eyes of the visitors, but their minds, and above all their hearts.
Every decision made in the creation of the museum was driven by two elements:
- respect for the visitors, and
- respect for the artists.

In addition to exhibiting the artworks, the Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund shows the environment of the life of the painter: clothes, jewelry, and the entire context in which the artist lived and produced his/her paintings. This 360°view of the llife and work of one artist allows the visitors to immerse themselves totally into the artworks and to better understand the artist.

The founders of the Art Museum are Hans-Jürgen Gehrke and Dr. Mariella C. Remund. Both are art patrons, collectors, and passionate art historians. Both have spent over 25 years in executive positions in multinational corporations and academic organizations in Germany, Italy, France, Switzerland, USA, Spain, South America and China.
