Karl Horst Hödicke (*1938 in Nuremberg/Germany) is known for his neo-expressionist paintings. After moving to Berlin in 1957, Hödicke became one of the spokesmen for a small group of boisterous young critical minds who wanted to revolutionize painting. Along with Georg Baselitz, Jörg Immendorff, and A.R. Penck, Hödicke was a pioneer of German Neo-Expressionism and New Figuration. In 1978, he was one of the main protagonists and drivers of the Junge Wilde movement, which emerged in German-speaking countries in opposition to established minimal and conceptual strategies. As a professor at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin, he influenced subsequent generations of painters for decades.
