Where Does Your Heart Belong?

Works from the Signum Foundation
The exhibition, which appeals to both the head and the heart, offers insights into an outstanding Polish private collection. The conceptually vivid selection of works on display here is being shown in this form for the first time in Germany. The works come from the Signum Foundation that was established by Hanna and Jarosław Przyborowski in 2002 and is based in Poznań but also located in Łódź and Venice. The range of media extends from painting past sculpture to Performance and Process Art; from photography past neon-textual works and Concept Art all the way to extremely provocative and disturbing self-stagings in which traditional role patterns are critically examined. The list of participating artists reads like a Who’s Who? of Polish art. [more...]

MESH

Master Pupil Exhibition of the University of the Arts Bremen. Karin Hollweg Prize 2018
The title MESH already sounds the central note: art can also be understood as a texture that connects things and holds them together. This is a matter of meaningful references and interconnections in which the focus is on the relationship between subject and community, between individual statements and their dynamic interplay. This interwoven connectedness serves as a conceptual model for the 2018 Master Pupil Exhibition of the University of the Arts Bremen. This year fourteen artists are presenting their most recent works. On display is the entire spectrum from drawing, painting and sculpture all the way to space-encompassing installations, video, performance and a kinetic sound object. MESH thereby offers a multifaceted perspective with regard to the quality and diversity of the current art scene in Bremen. A special highlight of the opening evening is the awarding of the Karin Hollweg Prize. [more...]

Junges Blut

Ausstellungs- und Kooperationsprojekt mit der Kunstschule Wandsbek
Junges Blut klingt wie eine Frischzellenkur. Und in der Tat bietet das Kooperationsprojekt mit der Kunstschule Wandsbek überraschende Einblicke in das Denken und Wirken junger Menschen. Inspiriert von der großen Sonderausstellung „Proof of Life / Lebenzeichen“ hat eine Gruppe Studierender eigene künstlerische Arbeiten und Konzepte entwickelt, um sie einer interessierten Öffentlichkeit vorzustellen. Brisante Fragen, die die eigene Identität, aber auch existenzielle Erfahrungsbereiche wie Tod und Leben berühren, werden auf vielschichtige Weise thematisiert. Ziel war es, den Studierenden für Kommunikationsdesign die Möglichkeit zu geben, künstlerisch frei zu arbeiten. Zugleich konnten sie die nötigen gestalterischen und organisatorischen Abläufe einer Ausstellungsproduktion kennenlernen. Innerhalb der letzten fünf Monate sind spannende bisweilen sehr persönliche Arbeiten entstanden. Die erfolgreiche Kooperation mit der Kunstschule Wandsbek findet mittlerweile zum dritten Mal statt.

Was Bilder erzählen

Kinderkulturprojekt 2017/18 von QUARTIER gGmbh
Das stadtweite Kinderkulturprojekt von QUARTIER lässt sich inspirieren von der aktuellen Ausstellung ‚Proof of Life – Lebenszeichen’. Lebenszeichen sind es auch, mit denen die Kinder und Jugendlichen auf die Kunstwerke reagieren: „Ah!“ und „Oh!“ und „Iiih!“, „Ist das Blut echt?“, „Warum ist da der Clown von McDonalds?“, „Ist das ein Foto oder gemalt?“, „Was ist unter dem Tuch?“, „Und ist der Mann in der Badewanne tot?“. In der Weserburg liegen die Kinder bäuchlings auf dem Boden, zwischen barbusigem Partybild und Schlafsack-Kunst und zeichnen unbeirrt ihr ausgewähltes Kunstwerk ab. Sie ‚erobern’ die Ausstellungsräume und schauen, entdecken viele Details, führen intensive Gespräche über und mit den Bildern, und können genau sagen, welches ihr ‚schönstes und welches ihr schrecklichstes’ Kunstwerk ist. Im Januar findet die große Projektpräsentation aller Kunstwerke statt. Begleitende Führungen für Gruppen, Kinder und Eltern, Mitmachaktionen, Filmvorführungen und Performances ergänzen die Ausstellung in der Weserburg. Schirmherrschaft: Bürgermeister Dr. Carsten Sieling, Bürgermeister und Präsident des Bremer Senats. [more...]

Works of Art from the Collections

Minimal. Here and Now

Works from the Lafrenz Collection
The Lafrenz Collection has substantially influenced the self-concept and image of the Weserburg, the collector’s museum in the middle of the river Weser, since its inception. As early as the 1970s, the Hamburg-based pharmacist Dr. Klaus Lafrenz had assembled a powerful and unmistakable collection of key positions in Minimal Art, Conceptual Art, Arte Povera, and related art trends from the United States and Europe. What particularly stands out is their questioning of the media and materials as well as of the basic conditions of the artist’s perception of these. Indeed, most of Lafrenz’s paintings, sculptures, and installations do not represent anything in a mimetic sense, do not depict anything that might exist outside of themselves. Instead, they create in a sensorial way unmistakable situations and confrontations that are immediately transferred into the space and ultimately to the viewer as well. [more...]

John Cage, Andrzej Dudek-Dürer, Robert Rehfeldt, Takako Saito – Artists’ mail in contemporary art
Letters, invitations, faxes and postcards from artists are often works of art in their own right. John Cage transformed his messages into mesostics, in which the middle letters of the words arranged vertically constituted a poem referring specifically to the recipient. Andrzej Dudek-Dürer uses his graphic works for his correspondence. Robert Rehfeldt wrote and drew letters which he then reproduced as art letters before furnishing them with individual greetings and stamp impressions. Takako Saito constructs her own exhibition invitations in the form of small objects enhanced with personal messages. A selection of artists’ post by other authors completes the presentation of the works of these artists. [more...]

Cia Rinne

Notes for Listeners
The oeuvre of Cia Rinne is one of the most important contemporary manifestations of the evolutions arising from the concrete, visual and audio poetry from the 1950s to the 1980s and invites us to reposition this artistic and literary current within its contemporary and historical context. According to the various supports employed, Cia Rinne’s works can be either seen or heard in this cabinet exhibition. On the one hand, Rinne exploits writing and the written word in an aesthetic way, creating visual poetry within the framework of artists’ books and graphic works. On the other hand, she also works with spoken language, presenting her multi-lingual poems in an ultra-precise voice performance in the form of sound poetry. Cia Rinne is a polyglot poet, employing mostly a hybrid of English, German and French.[more...]
