Join Director Timothy DePaepe and co-producer Dr. Kelly Chong for a discussion immediately following the film. This screening will be
the first time that the documentary has been viewed alongside Bloch’s historic painting Duell (Duel) in a museum setting.
"AB" is the first documentary on the life and work of Albert Bloch, an unconventional painter and poet whose story challenges the accepted history of modern art. Bloch was the lone American of the revolutionary art movement Der Blaue Reider (1911-1914) in Munich, Germany, which included Wassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, and Paul Klee. After Bloch left Germany in 1921, he retreated to Lawrence, Kansas, hidden from the commercial art community until his death in 1961. Bloch left behind an extraordinary legacy of hundreds of images that feed the intellect and stir the soul. The discovery of Bloch’s work in 1984 provoked disputation about the origin of modernism.
