political pictures 1988-1992

Nazi thugs who beat up a man just because he wears a yarmulke? The scene, which is a reminder of the unhappy past but unfortunately could also have originated in the precarious present, actually took place in Naumburg in 1988, when the peace-loving workers' and farmers' state staggered towards its unstoppable end. The thugs were spurred on by the "Staatssicherheit", the secret police, whose task it was to secure the construction of "socialism" against its opponents (in Nazi jargon: "enemies of the people"). One of those "enemies" was obviously Andreas Neumann-Nochten, who as theology student in Naumburg was among others engaged in the peace movement.
In the House of the High Lily on Naumburg's market square, the City Museum shows explicitly political pictures from 29 August onwards, which Neumann-Nochten, who lived in Naumburg from 1979 to 1992, painted between 1988 and 1992. For him, the days of upheaval and peaceful re-lution were both the goal and the climax of a path he had already taken as a member of the Naumburg Peace Working Group from 1981.
Events, thoughts and moods that occupied him immediately before, with and after the political turnaround were processed by him in drawings, graphics and paintings. They are documents of the cultural and political events in the German-German community, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. While these apparently political pictures can be seen in the special exhibition room on the ground floor, on the first floor one encounters a series of crayon drawings in which the painter has recorded historical building complexes before their demolition: "Moments of change" are also discovered here.
Andreas Neumann-Nochten was born in 1960. From 1979 he studied theology at the Katechetian High Seminary in Naumburg and was for many years involved in the local peace movement, whose critical-oppositional attitude towards the regime often enough led to repressive measures. After graduating, he worked as a nurse and at the same time devoted himself to studies in painting, graphics and caricature. This was followed by a correspondence course in advertising graphic design. After a few years in Berlin he found his center of life in Görlitz in 1999 and now works as a freelance artist, theologian and journalist. Some of his caricatures, posters and pictures were acquired as illustrative examples of the GDR civil rights movement for the Zeitgeschichtliches Forum Leipzig.
