BLK BOX PHX presents “Bauer”, the riveting story of modern artist, Rudolph Bauer. Member of the avant-garde movement in Berlin in the 1930’s and then of the abstract non-objective movement in New York, he survived Nazi prison and immigrated to the United States in 1939. His works were once at the center of the Guggenheim collection, alongside paintings by Klee, Chagall and Kandinsky. When Solomon Guggenheim died, his heirs relegated his work to the basement of the museum. Seemingly bound for immortality, Bauer was suddenly plunged into obscurity.
