OH WOW

Meisterschüler Exhibition of the HfK Bremen. The Karin Hollweg Award 2017
Art that causes amazement, that is richly inventive and surprisingly new – OH WOW, the title of the master pupil exhibition, brings an unmistakably ironic tone to its investigation of the expectations and demands that have been imposed upon art up to now. Originality, individuality and expressiveness continue to be criteria for a successful work, but the possibilities and challenges of aesthetic practice far exceed those categories: Indeed, they sometimes justifiably pursue such concepts to the point of absurdity. Art operating on the level of international discourse arises within a mesh of explicit reference and ongoing development; it means critical encounter and rejection. The extensive group exhibition undertaken by 17 master pupils upon completing their course of study in free visual art at the Bremen University of the Arts is exemplary in this regard, inasmuch as it presents a wide range of contemporary artistic strategies.

Paper Capers!

A journey through the world of paper. A hands-on exhibition at the kek Children’s Museum.
In collaboration with the Weserburg | Museum for Modern Art, the kek-Children’s Museum association is once again, after a pause of six years, presenting its hands-on exhibition “Paper Capers.” This exhibition focuses on the one hand on the history and production of paper, and on the other hand on the multifaceted aspects of paper as a cultural medium. In the cultural history of the last 2,000 years, paper has played an important, constantly evolving role. Our exhibition begins with the predecessors of paper. Visitors become familiar with the potential raw materials for producing paper and can create their own paper. They embark upon a journey to explore the multiple uses of paper in daily life and take a tour of the various sectors of art. Visitors encounter the fragile, valuable material in a fashion showroom, on various stages of miniature theaters, in a sound studio and at a site for constructing paper art. [more...]

Junge Sammlungen 04

Das Ende einer Sammlung - Christian Kaspar Schwarm
Er ist Strategieberater und Mitbegründer der Online Plattform „Independent Collectors“. Seine sich gegenwärtig stetig weiter und neu konturierende Sammlung umfasst vor allem internationale junge Kunst von Querdenkern. Liest man die Namen der Künstlerinnen und Künstler, die bislang Eingang in die Sammlung des Wahlberliners gefunden haben, findet man medienübergreifende Positionen und Werke mit einem hohen politischen und intellektuellen Anspruch. Zugleich gibt es auch ganze Räume umfassende, überaus sinnliche Installationen. Christian Kaspar Schwarm sieht das Sammeln von Kunst und seinen Austausch mit Künstlerinnen und Künstlern vor allem als Erfahrungsressource und Erweiterung seines Weltverständnisses. Für die Ausstellung ist vorgesehen, einen Teil der interdisziplinären Bibliothek des Sammlers, deren Bände natürlich Querverbindungen zu den ebenso übergreifenden Fragestellungen der gesammelten Kunstwerke erlauben, mit auszustellen.[more...]
