— PAUL BLANKENBURG
Founding members RATGEB
In 1977 Paul Blankenburg († 1996), Werner Steinbrecher († 2008), and Werner Brunner (b. 1941) founded the artists’ group Ratgeb; later Nil Ausländer and Bernd Micka joined them. For eight years, the Ratgeb artists created several murals in West Berlin featuring schoolchildren, youths, squatters, and a biker gang before the group disbanded in 1985.
