Ausleger was a German Expressionist painter who later moved to a Synthetic Cubist style and member of the so-called "Novembergruppe," a group of German painters and architects whose leaders were Max Pechstein and Cesar Klein and who named themselves after the month of the German Revolution. The artists of the November group described themselves as radical and revolutionary. Their work, like that of the similar Arbeitsrat fur Kunst aimed to support a socialist revolution in Germany. Other members included Otto Dix, Kurt Weill, Feininger, Lissitzky and Hilla von Rebay, among others.

Ausleger first studied at the famed Reimann School.  As a soldier during WWI, he met many of the painters who later joined him in the Novembergruppe.  He adopted a Synthetic Cubist style during the 1920s.  The Nazis classified him as a "degenerate" painter and much of his work was destroyed by them and during WWII.
