Arik Brauer - Liederbuch (1973) - Rest in peace!


The Austrian artist and Holocaust survivor Arik Brauer died yesterday at 92. Rest in peace!

Arik Brauer (4 January 1929 – 24 January 2021) was an Austrian painter, printmaker, poet, dancer, singer, and stage designer. He resided in Vienna and Ein Hod, Israel. Brauer was a co-founder of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism, together with Ernst Fuchs, Rudolf Hausner, Fritz Janschka, Wolfgang Hutter and Anton Lehmden.

Born Erich Brauer in 1929 to a Jewish family that had emigrated from Russia to Vienna, he experienced the rise of National Socialism as a child. His father died in a concentration camp while Brauer himself survived the Holocaust by going into hiding.

After the war, Brauer studied art and music, dual passions he would pursue throughout his life. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna before moving to Paris with his wife, Naomi, where the pair made a living as singers.

Returning to Vienna in the mid-1960s, he became a prominent representative of the city's Fantastic Realism art movement. Despite the prevailing art-world taste for abstraction in the 1950s and early 1960s, Brauer's work successfully blended high craftsmanship and surrealism in ways that gained him international attention. In 1982, he had breakthrough solo shows in the United States.
While Brauer’s colorful art enjoyed international success, at home he was also widely known for his Austrian-German songwriting.



The double album "Liederbuch" was released in 1973 and combines his first two releases,  "Arik Brauer" (1971) and "Alles was Flügel hat, fliegt" (1974).
