Sigmar Polke

Sigmar Polke (1941, Silesia) developed the style of the “Capitalist Realism” together with Gerhard Richter and Konrad Lueg during the 1960s. Their paintings ironically engaged with the problematic history of figurative painting in Germany (due to National Socialism and later East Germany’s “Social Realism”), while also drawing references to American Pop-Art. Other than the affirmation of consumerist culture, his works try to disrupt our perception of everyday life objects.
