About AB: The Life and Work of Albert Bloch

AB: The Life and Work of Albert Bloch | Directed by Tim De Paepe: The first documentary to unravel the remarkable story of Albert Bloch, the only American artist to be included in the first exhibition of Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), a revolutionary group of artists that featured iconic Expressionists like Wassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, and August Macke. Bloch’s connections to these avant-garde figures, what happened to him following this influential period, and how his work fell into relative obscurity are all addressed. Featuring many of his little-known paintings and passages from his poetry, the film’s focus on Bloch’s lifelong commitment to finding spiritual truth through art remains at its heart.
