Max Ginsburg: „Mir wurde gesagt, ich wäre un-amerikanisch“

 Street Roots - USA Montag, 31. Oktober 2011

In den Fünfziger- und Sechzigerjahren, als die Kunst sich kopfüber in die Abstraktheit stürzte, brachte der Künstler Max Ginsburg seine Ansichten in den stärkeren Fokus. Ginsburgs Welt war nicht rundherum verschwommen. Seine war lebhaft, anschaulich und viel zu real. (2663 Wörter) - Von Joanne Zuhl
