“Im Dunkeln – Ein Leuchten” is an interactive storytelling project that accompanies the “Captivity” exhibition at the Staatsgalerie, focusing on the life and art of Fred Uhlman, a lesser-known “lost son” of Stuttgart. Born in 1901, Uhlman was a jurist who fled to France in 1933 and began painting as an autodidact.
