Katalog zur Ausstellung in der Kunsthalle Bremen vom 5. August bis 19. November 2017.

Mit Werken von Fritz Behn, Paul Gauguin, Katsushika Hokusai, Georg Kolbe, Hew Locke, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Emil Nolde, Max Pechstein, Amrita Sher-Gil u.v. m.
In the nineteenth and early twentieth century, the Hanseatic city of Bremen was a flourishing centre of rapidly growing international trade, profiting from colonial expansion and overseas migration. These global relations also left their traces in the Kunstverein in Bremen. Many works which were acquired by the museum during the colonial period reflect stereotypes of the foreign and exotic.

The authors trace these colonial blind spots in the collection of the Kunsthalle Bremen. They examine the history of the Kunstverein in Bremen within the context of the city's trade and global connections and investigate the colonial implications of works by, amongst others, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Emil Nolde and Fritz Behn. These European perspectives are set in dialogue with works by modern and contemporary artists from the African and Asian continent. Thus, the book not only enables a postcolonial perspective on the collection of the Kunsthalle Bremen, but also on early modern art in general.
