Product Notes

Michael Trabitzsch boldly braids together the disparate strands of the Austrian expressionist's life and work - combining color with black and white photography, third person narration with first person confessions from Kirchner's own note books and an angular jazz score with the melodies of Kirchner's day. "We claim as our own everyone who reproduces directly and without falsification whatever it is that drives him to create". These words, carved into wood and hung in 1904 at the butcher shop group studio of Die Brucke ("the Bridge") by their author, Kirchner, were a credo that drove the artist and his work well beyond the life of the famed Dresden art collective. Through the thousands of drawings, woodblock prints, lithographs and painting Kirchner created between the turn of the century and his suicide in 1938, branded a "degenerate" artist by the Nazis, Kirchner's volcanic life and turbulent times were, in the words of critic Wolf-Dieter Dube, "made visible in his pictures, where it survives to astonish and disturb posterity".
