Mathematics is often associated with abstract concepts, cold logic, or impractical constructions. Far fewer are the associations with creativity, let alone art. Still, mathematicians will tell you about the beauty of their constructions and proofs. Can this beauty only be appreciated by the innated? Does it need a degree in mathematics to recognize the aesthetic values that the field has to offer? In this sense, it seems rather difficult to combine mathematics with artistic disciplines like visual arts, music, or performing arts, just to name a few.
Dive deeper into the art world
»Photography is my work - watercolors are my pearls.«
With city views of Berlin, Efraim Habermann became known to a broad public as a photographer in the 1960s. His works are characterized early on by a distinctive, concise style and unusual perspectives. Today, after a 50-year creative phase, he has an extensive body of photographic work, consistently in black and white, with numerous series from Israel, Venice and Berlin, still lifes, portraits and photographic collages. Habermann's »pearls«, his mostly constructivist watercolors, geometric forms in strong colors, finely balanced into a postcard-sized composition, seem almost like a commentary on his own conception of the image. An extensive exhibition of works from the artist's private archive can now be seen in Berlin from mid-February.
