Examples of his works of art: Update to heinz hugel

Remark for the titles of the works shown:

Already in the years of 1970, 1980, heinz hugel had himself decided for the use of small initial letters. Today, nobody else stumbles over it. The use of small initial letters had got socially acceptable by then. Thank the “digital world”! rh

“hartz IV”*, oil on canvas, 80 cm x 100 cm, 1985

* “HartzIV” is the expression for a kind of unemployment benefit and is intended for guaranteeing the so-called basic needs for life. (Quite roughly explained) rh

Remark: In 1985, hh had given the title “workshop” to this oil painting: At that time, young people had for the first time been courageously enough to risk an existence of their own and to rent      empty stores or halls. This one, which nowadays is not any more something special, had been new at that time! These young independent working people had an inspiring mind and the courage to venture something. This atmosphere, hh had brought to expression by the poetic coloration – next to the broken window panes –.  The fact that the whole had hidden in itself a certain risk, hh had pointed out with the indicated game of chess. In 2008, heinz hugel had had a great individual exhibition with the title „Arcades” in the service center “Wagenfeld”. At this occasion, he had got the idea to give the picture a new title, namely “hartz IV”, spontaneously!  I think that he had wanted    then to express how many of these people anyway had failed and could not manage to exist with their independent work; and meanwhile, this fact had led to a dependence of “hartz IV”.

Remark-*: The German title contains a pun: “spie(l)gelungen“… Inserting the letter “l” in brackets, two versions can be read: “Reflections” and “game turned out well “. hh refers to the self-     conception of theater itself with that: The real concern of it is to reflect behaviors of people. If this has been reached, then the game is excellent… rh
