Lars Käker – Menschenbilder aus drei Jahrzehnten

For centuries, the painted portrait was a privilege of the powerful and rich. It was a status symbol and stood for rank, power and wealth. With his picture, the portrayed person determined with which expression and visible features he wanted to be seen by posterity.

The people painted by Lars Käker come from the other sphere, that of the normal working population, from social fringe groups, from the mass of people who have no power and are not rich. In painting people whose lives are only important to themselves and their environment, Lars Käker succeeds in providing an honest, undisguised look into the soul. In Käker’s portraits of everyman and everywoman, complex personalities and the traces of truly lived lives become visible to the viewer. In faces that are as special as their own.
