From 1958 to 1973 the Junge Kunstkreis Fulda (JUKU, engl.: Young Art Circle of Fulda) was intensively
engaged with post-war modernist art. With its mentor Karlfried Staubach
almost a hundred exhibitions were carried out that not only enriched the
cultural life of Fulda but shook it up on many occasions.
This volume deals not with the reconstruction of regional art and
cultural history but rather with the rediscovery of an episode in German
post-war art. By way of example are Franz Erhard Walther and Verena
Pfisterer, who continued their artistic genesis in JUKU as contemporaries
of Beuys, Richter and others at the Düsseldorf Art Academy.
The graphic prints published to finance the JUKU gallery, and the
exhibition catalogues, designed too with the groups own print works, are
shown in full for the very first time.
