Fifty artists honor their former teacher, the painter Marwan , in an exhibition . The exhibition not only commemorates and honors an outstanding artist, but also a teacher whose human, intellectual and artistic consistency is sustainably present in the works of a younger generation.
It is well known that great artists are not necessarily great mentors. The fact that Marwan embodies both to the highest degree is often touched in this exhibition and this publication.
All fifty participating artists took their own path, stuck to it - whatever the circumstances - and developed their work into a convincing artistic position that - far from epigonal attitudes - embodies an individual form of expression . What unites these positions - despite their heterogeneity - is a noticeably consistent attitude, an obsessive search for the existential and human in the world and the resulting attempts to give it shape and form. This concern can be found in Marwan's own artistic work and at the same time goes far beyond the purely artistic.
Just as Marwan's heads mean a whole, multi-layered world, the collected works of the students, their voices and moods, as well as the conversations, memories, correspondences, create another highly complex image of the person and artist Marwan. This image is not that of an almighty or overwhelming role model, rather it appears like a soft melody, like a colorful light giving shade, like a magical force or - like a cheering guardian angel.
