Herbert Behrens-Hangeler

1898 Berlin — 1981 Fredersdorf bei Berlin

Herbert Behrens-Hangeler, born Herbert Behrens,  had an early interest in Dadaism. In 1920, Behrens-Hangeler founded the artists’ group “Der Wurf”. He also was a student of Lovis Corinth. He also joined the November Group in Berlin, which he was part of until it was dissolved in 1933. In 1932, he founded the group “Selection” along with Lyonel Feininger, Max Beckmann, Karl Hofer and others. In 1933, he was denounced as a “degenerate” artist by the Nazis. He was forbidden from exercising his profession. The painter Wolfgang Willrich published an inflammatory book in 1937 entitled Säuberung des Kunsttempels in which he denounced 174 artists of the “Red November Group”, including Behrens-Hangeler.
