Otto Baum

 

From the archetype to sculptural form

The pictorial and formal language of Otto Baum is one of the most radical positions of modern sculpture in Germany - not in the sense of an extroverted or constructivist expression, but in its introverted, consistently reduced character. Here one finds the closest references to the sculptural idea of Constantin Brancusi, whose work Baum had become acquainted with in Paris. With his bronze and stone works, he did not found a school, but at least influenced an entire generation of sculptors whose work continues to have an impact today. To be rediscovered are his wooden sculptures, which in the magic of their presence are reminiscent of archaic art and at the same time in their timeless dignity seem as current and fresh today as they did half a century ago.
