Felka Platek - An artist in exile

Exhibition in the Felix Nussbaum House

To mark the 125th birthday of the artist Felka Platek, the Felix Nussbaum House in the Museumsquartier Osnabrück is presenting a special exhibition on the life and work of the painter from Sunday, 25 February at 3.30 pm. The exhibition "Felka Platek - An Artist in Exile" honours the life and work of this Jewish painter, who was not only a talented artist, but also an artist colleague and wife of Felix Nussbaum.

With 26 paintings, the Museumsquartier Osnabrück owns the world's largest collection of works by Felka Platek (1899 Warsaw - 1944 Auschwitz). The special exhibition shows paintings and prints from all of the artist's creative phases from the museum's own collection, beginning in Berlin in the late 1920s, through the years of exile in Italy and Belgium to her last works, which were created in hiding in Brussels.

Felka Platek was born in Warsaw on 3 January 1899. She attended the renowned Lewin Funcke School, where she trained as a portrait painter. In 1924, she met the painter Felix Nussbaum. She left Berlin at the end of 1932 to accompany Nussbaum to Italy and never returned to Germany. Felka Platek and Felix Nussbaum were arrested in Brussels on 20 June 1944 and deported to Auschwitz on 31 July 1944, where they were murdered.

The exhibition is a tribute to a remarkable artist and a testimony to the resilience of the human spirit and the importance of art in difficult times.
