Horst Strempel

1904 Beuthen — 1975 Berlin

Horst Strempel began an apprenticeship as a decorative painter in 1918, and in 1922 embarked on studies at the State Academy of Arts and Crafts in Breslau. In 1927 he moved to Berlin to attend the United State Schools of Free and Applied Arts. Strempel joined the Association of Revolutionary Visual Artists of Germany (ASSO) soon after it was founded in 1928. His precarious economic situation meant he had to move apartment often. In 1929, he began working for the Berlin painting company Birkle & Thomae. From 1930 onwards, Strempel became interested in communism. He took part in political activities and produced illegal political pamphlets. In 1932, his painting was removed from the Great Berlin Art Exhibition. Strempel was denounced as a “degenerate” artist.
