Norbert Tadeusz is one of the most important painters in Germany and created a distinctive works, which situates it beyond expressionism or realism.
In addition to his "famous" Dialogue with Friedhelm Mennekes, which he led at the Museum Ludwig on his "Nighthawks" from 1972, we have very rare film documents, interviews and photographs at our archive. Between 2000 and 2010 filmmaker Ralph Goertz was allowed to accompany him at his studio, while he was painting and at Museumsinsel Hombroich.
