I spent my childhood in the company of my grandparents’ collection of Max Beckmann paintings. My grandfather, Stephan Lackner, met Beckmann in Nazi Germany, and dedicated his life to championing the “degenerate” artist’s work. Beckmann’s paintings instilled in me the firm belief that art is a beacon in times of internal and political unrest. It can be a manifestation of one’s own internal dialogue and a powerful tool to self-knowledge.
