The Stadtmuseum in Bonn is hosting a new exhibition of the work of Milein Cosman this spring, opening on 8 March 2024.

The exhibition will feature works from the collection of Milein Cosman’s art donated by the Trust to the City of Bonn’s forthcoming Forum Exilkultur, a landmark project to place the work of exiled artists, past and present, in the centre of Bonn.

This important project has grown out of the work of the collector and publisher Thomas B. Schumann, who spent decades collecting and exhibiting the work of artists forced to flee Germany during the Nazi period, eventually amassing around 1,000 artworks by 200 different artists. Milein Cosman herself was a supporter of his work, and during her lifetime donated several of her own artworks to his collection. In 2012 Schumann published Lifelines, a substantial book of Milein Cosman’s art which he co-edited with the Trust’s then chairman, Julian Hogg. A permanent exhibition on the life and work of Milein Cosman will be an important part of the Forum Exilkultur when it opens.

Next month’s special exhibition at the Stadtmuseum, Capturing the Moment: the Artist Milein Cosman, runs from 8 March until 7 April and will include special lectures and tours about Milein and her art, together with a drawing workshop for children and adults: further details here.
