“Das Junge Rheinland” (The Young Rhineland) was one of the first artists’ associations to be established in Germany after World War I. By 1932 it numbered some 300 artists, whose objective was to create local and national exhibition opportunities and thus make themselves “visible”. The diversity of the group, the degree to which its members were networked, and their links with artists from other regions and towns has not hitherto been sufficiently researched. With the 100th anniversary of the establishment of “Das Junge Rheinland” falling in 2019, Museum Kunstpalast and the Heinrich Heine University have joined forces to inject new vigour into research concerning the extent of the art association’s network. The project’s objective is to establish a research platform that will offer interlinked information on people, works, exhibitions and publications by “Das Junge Rheinland” and make available any scholarly essays produced within the scope of the project. The context for this is the art-historical documentation undertaken at the Kunstpalast and the presentation of a major special exhibition (7 February-2 June 2019).
