Aaron Chaimowicz (he used the pseudonym "Josef Brauner") was born in 1890 in Berlin into a Jewish family. His father, also Aaron, was of the Austrian descent. He was a scrap dealer (textile, clothes, furniture, metals). His mother Miriam, nee Aschkenes, was born in Galicia (Austro-Hungary; present day West Ukraine); she met her husband in Vienna.
In 1918, Aaron Chaimowicz became a member of "Arbeitsrat für Kunst" in Berlin. Among his friends of that time were Otto Bartning, Philipp Hansen, Oskar Shepp, etc. He also had many friends from "Staatliches Bauhaus". Chaimowicz attended painting and graphic classes of Vasili Kandinsky, Oskar Schlemmer and Herbert Bayer. This period marked the development of his passion for small totems and objects, especially for collages, many of which (according to his autobiography) vanished during the fire in his Berlin studio. A passionate anti-fascist, Chaimowicz took part in the Spanish Civil War, served in XI International Brigade and participated in the defense of Madrid; he also fought in Quinto, Teruel, Belchite, and was awarded Republican Order "El Distintivo del Valor".
After Republicans' defeat he moved to France but was interned there. Soon, however, he was able to flee from internment camp and cross the border to Germany, which was by then already fully governed by the Nazis. Up until the end of WWII Chaimowicz fought Nazi regime from the anti-fascist underground (he was risking his life both as a Jew and Communist). In the late 1940s the artist went to the USA, in order to find the only surviving member of his family - his sister Ruth, who lived in the US since 1939. He was only able to locate her (already married) in 1950 in Boston. From that point on, he lived close to his sister in this city, where he died in 1973.
