Gormley / Lehmbruck: Calling on the Body opens at the Lehmbruck Museum 23 September 2022–26 February 2023 Germany. Internationally renowned as one of the most significant and influential sculptors working today, Antony Gormley is a great admirer of German sculptor Wilhelm Lehmbruck and, specifically, his work’s inwardness, concentration and tranquility. Published to accompany the largest exhibition of Antony Gormley’s work in Germany to date, Gormley / Lehmbruck: Calling on the Body showcases key works created almost a century apart. This richly illustrated catalogue features an introductory essay by the Lehmbruck Museum’s director, Söke Dinkla, who vividly draws out the dialogue between both artists, whilst curator Ronja Friedrichs writes on the museum’s celebrated architecture and its resonance for Gormley’s practice. New scholarship by art historian Jon Wood places a specific emphasis on Gormley’s models and his working process. A conversation with the artist offers insights into his way of thinking and working as well as the value of sculpture in our society.
