The art magazine Kündung ranks among the most ambitious projects of German Expressionism, combining striking imagery with hand-cut typography. The quality of the impressions and an extraordinarily low print run of just 200 made Kündung the foremost publication of its kind.

It heralded a new age of Expressionist art and aimed to reinvigorate contemporary culture through a fusion of the figurative and the abstract. Having premiered in January of 1921, it ran for just twelve issues. This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of these extraordinary prints.
Martel Schwichtenberg PortraitMartel Schwichtenberg was born in 1896 in Hannover. She studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, completing her studies in 1917 and subsequently worked for the Bahlsen biscuit company, designing packaging and posters. The financial security afforded by her employment allowed her to set up her own studio in Berlin in 1920. Around this time she joined the ‘Werkbund’ (a precursor to the Bauhaus school of Design) and a group of German expressionist artists called ‘Novembergruppe’.

In 1933 she emigrated to South Africa, continuing to work for Bahlsen, and producing large volumes of work (including a commission for a mural for the Broadcast House, Johannesburg). Unfortunately, in 1938, a fire devastated her home and studio, destroying most of her work. She returned to Germany and later died there in 1945.
