Junges Blut. Touch me

Opening of the exhibition and cooperation project with Kunstschule Wandsbek.

Exhibition duration: March 12 – April 17, 2022

Photos touch us. We touch photos – Nowadays, the next picture is just a swipe of the finger away. But just as quickly it disappears again in the media flood of images. How can the fleeting, digital moment be captured? What alternative forms and materials can a photo take? What does an image even feel like?

Inspired by contemporary photographic art from the Weserburg’s collections, a group of students is developing their own photographic approaches with exciting, sometimes very personal approaches: Photos as large-format prints, as precious one-offs, as objects that may be touched, or even in booklet form for browsing and discovery. Be it intimate insights or haptic experiences, the smooth surface of the touchscreen is juxtaposed here with other possibilities of experience, other forms of encounters, exchange and touch. Here as there, the motto is: Touch me!

“Participate. Participate. Showing oneself and one’s ideas in public – the long-standing cooperation with the Kunstschule Wandsbek is exemplary for our idea of an open museum. Young people can learn about contemporary art here, become creative themselves, and in the end set up their own exhibition.” Janneke de Vries, Director of the Weserburg Museum of Modern Art

Landschaften auch mit Blau

Catalog release and artist talk in german language with Ulla von Brandenburg and Janneke de Vries

What is the power of color? Is blue present or absent? Why does an artist line museum spaces with fabrics? What role do the visitors play? What is the fascination of theater, dance and music for the visual arts? What do exhibitions and circus have to do with each other? How can art shape community? And why is it so difficult to leave one’s own exhibition after the opening? These are just a few of the questions that will arise in conversation with Ulla von Brandenburg.

In the presence of the artist, the catalog that was published on the occasion of her current exhibition at the Weserburg will also be presented to the public for the first time. It expands on the exhibition with two texts, a conversation about modern dance, and many illustrations.

Skulpturale Poesie

Soft Opening at the Center for Artists' Publications

Exhibition Duration: March 26 – August 14, 2022

Among the fruitful relationships between visual art and literature, the dialogue between poetry and sculpture plays an important role, especially in the 20th century. Against this backdrop, the exhibition Sculptural Poetry is dedicated to a facet of experimental poetry and art since the 1960s that has received little attention. The focus is on text sculptures and sculptural texts: poetry objects that deal with the plastic spatialization of writing and the reification of words. Objects are inscribed with texts, or the letters themselves appear as three-dimensional works of art, and are also the subject of actions and performances.

The exhibition at the Center for Artists’ Publications offers an international overview of the diverse manifestations of sculptural poetry. The temporal spectrum ranges from the 1960s to current works.

In cooperation with the international literature festival Poetry on the Road.

In particular, the sections dealing with the sensual, moral and symbolic effects of color will be discussed in detail.

will be examined in greater detail with the aim of situating Ulla von Brandenburg’s work in a larger historical context and thus providing new perspectives on her work.

Färben, Falten, Nähen: Textile Wenden in der (Gegenwarts)kunst

Lecture by Dr. Anne Röhl, University of Siegen, Location: Library

Lecture (German language) by Dr Anne Röhl, University of Siegen, Location: Library

Textiles are omnipresent in Ulla von Brandenburg’s work – as cords, ribbons, covers, draperies, curtains, tents and patchwork quilts. They are folded, stretched, hung and laid out, sewn, dyed and bleached. The lecture focuses on dyeing or bleaching, draping and quilting and places these processes in the most recent history of art. Here, textiles are shown to be a medium of transition that dissolves genres and crosses borders.

Anne Röhl teaches as a retired academic councillor with a focus on “contemporary arts” at the University of Siegen. She completed her doctorate at the University of Zurich with a thesis on the role of textile handicrafts in US American art of the 1970s. Her research interests include textiles in 20th and 21st century art, art education practices, and materialities, techniques and gender issues in contemporary art.

Let's Talk Music

Mandelbrotmenge & Supersignale

Talk concert with pianist Claudia Janet Birkholz

Guest: Heinz-Otto Peitgen, mathematician

With works by György Ligeti (1923-2006)

as well as pictures of fractal geometry

Music releases numerous feelings in most people. If there are patterns behind what is heard, they can trigger a maelstrom-like effect.

In her discussion concerts, Claudia Janet Birkholz, pianist and artistic director of the realtime Festival for New Music, invites people to the Weserburg Museum of Modern Art in Bremen three times a year.

On May 12, beginning at 7 p.m., she and her guest, the mathematician Heinz-Otto Peitgen, will talk about illusory patterns in connection with fractal geometry. In the process, she will play selected pieces by György Ligeti, in which it will become clear how music can make use of these patterns and trigger special perceptions. Baffled, the audience wonders: How many hands are playing the piece? How wide is the keyboard?

Ligeti himself takes center stage, as does the parallelism between the mathematical research and his own compositional aspirations. When Ligeti saw Heinz-Otto Peitgen’s computer representations of the Mandelbrot set beginning in the 1980s, he understood the connection.

Birkholz and Peitgen talk about fractal geometry, the effect of supersignals, and the fascinating pull that certain music can have – played by Claudia Janet Birkholz on the grand piano.

Heinz-Otto Peitgen was professor of mathematics at the University of Bremen (emeritus in 2012) and president and CEO of Jacobs University in 2013.

Claudia Janet Birkholz is a pianist and lecturer for piano and new music at the HfK in Bremen.

Program:

György Ligeti (1923-2006):
Musica ricercata (1951-53)

Etudes (1985-2001)
– L’escalier du diable
– Arc-en-ciel
– Automne à Varsovie
– À bout de souffle
– Galamb Borong

Ukrainian Night

Talk with Miron Zownir (artist, Berlin), Kateryna Mishchenko (publisher/author, Kiev/Berlin) and Dr. Eduard Klein (Forschungsstelle Osteuropa, Bremen) about the book “Ukrainian Night”, published in 2015 (publisher: Spector Books).

About the book: From 2012 to 2014, Miron Zownir traveled Ukraine together with author Kateryna Mishchenko. Around the protests of the Maidan, they visited several cities and rural regions. Through close contact with local activists on the scene, they were able to gain insights into the often abysmal reality of life for the population, such as drug-addicted youths living in ruins in Odessa. Zownir photographed tuberculosis patients, HIV-positive people, orphans and residents of various Roma camps. The impressive images are accompanied by the sensitive texts of Kateryna Mishchenko.

Miron Zownir and Kateryna Mishchenko talk with Eduard Klein about the genesis of their book as well as about the current situation in Ukraine and its historical starting point.

The Use of Colors. Nan Groot Antink andFransje Killaars

Exhibition Opening in the Centre for Artists' Publications

Cabinet exhibition at the Center for Artists’ Publications

The different use of color is the theme of the two Dutch artists Nan Groot Antink (*1954) and Fransje Killaars (*1959). Nan Groot Antink works with colors that she produces herself from plants and other natural materials. For the artist, the material aspects of plant dyes and the way they are applied are defining elements – for her paintings, watercolors, installations, and prints, as well as her 2021 artist book.

The basis of Fransje Killaars’ work is paint based on colored, hand-woven fabric panels. In her artist books, objects and installations, she uses textiles as source material to draw viewers into her world.

Teresa Burga. The Tightrope Walker

Exhibition opening

Today the Peruvian artist Teresa Burga (1935–2021) has long been considered to be one of the important pioneers of Pop Art and Concept Art in Latin America; her oeuvre has been displayed at the major institutions and important biennials of this world. For a long time, however, her artistic output was basically neglected on both a national and an international level. Economic crises as well as reprisals and isolation within Peru’s military dictatorship prevented exchange or visibility on a cultural level. Only at an advanced age did she receive the recognition for her work that she so very much deserved.

The exhibition Teresa Burga. The Tightrope Walker accordingly concentrates on the extensive graphic oeuvre of the artist, especially the sheets done from 2013 to 2021. Many of the exhibited works are being shown to the public for the first time. The graphic sheets on which the artist worked right up to her death in February 2021 are linked at the Weserburg with drawings, linocuts, and a space-encompassing object installation from the 1960s. In this way, a bridge is extended from the late oeuvre back to the early works.

„danebengucken" – Children's workshop with Matthias Ruthenberg, artist

For all between 6 and 10 years

For everyone between 6 and 10 years

In the danebengucken workshop we want to take a closer look – at the paintings of an artist who herself likes to look the other way. On a tour of the exhibition Silvia Bächli. Lange Linien lang we dare and try to discover the ideas next to the works and to relate to them, or to pose, or to lie. In the workshop art education we can then produce our own works that do not speak of the loud and obvious sides of the world, but seek our very own elements to find images:
– wet red from here to here
– from here to there: dream gray
– second grade high
– break heavy

Digital lecture: "doing only what is important" - modes of drawing in Silvia Bächli's work

By Dr. Kirsten Claudia Voigt, Curator Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe

Digital lecture by Dr. Kirsten Claudia Voigt, curator Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe.

Silvia Bächli’s drawing starts from the body – from its shape on the one hand, but transformatively above all from its experience, its imagination, the discretion of its possibilities. This happens in extreme concentration and reduction, which liberate the work and the viewer gaze by gaze – from the ballast of the unimportant. “Do only what is important” is written on a drawing by Silvia Bächli from 1999. This succinct – also ironic – instruction describes an “ideal line” not only of artistic action. Silvia Bächli’s drawings follow it, approach it, reach it and in doing so find their way to the essential – in different modes, with different methods, which the lecture will demonstrate.

Biography:

1986-1991 Studied art history, philosophy and literature. 1991-1999 Worked as a freelance art, theater and literary critic and feature editor. 1996 doctorate with a thesis on Joseph Beuys. Since 1999 research assistant, curator, curator of 19th to 21st century art at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe and lecturer at the Institute of Art History at KIT (formerly University Fridericiana Karlsruhe). Numerous publications on art of the 19th century until today. Curator of exhibitions e.g. on the work of Joseph Beuys, Tony Cragg, Sean Scully, Silvia Bächli, Eric Hattan, Landscape, Portrait and Nature.

"lässt das viele Weiß die Linien atmen“ (let the many white breathe the lines)

Drawing workshop with Matthias Ruthenberg, artist

Bächli’s sheets have an inherent magic, which we want to approach in this two-day workshop. Based on the artist’s drawing vision, we will rehearse our own translations of the “intermediate tones” and the “overlooked in the everyday”. In the exhibition spaces we will trace Bächli’s attitude and borrow some of her methods in order to then experiment ourselves in the art education workshop.

The Way We Are 4.0

Exhibition opening

The Way We Are 4.0 brings together some one hundred works from more than eighty artists and artist groups from different eras and contexts. Five thematic areas spread across 2,500 m² convey insights into international art from the 1960s to the present day: Worlds of the Body, Views of Germany, Aesthetic Objection, Displaced Everyday Life, and Minimalistic Tendencies. These thematic classifications are complemented by a series of artist spaces and an extraordinary art bar consisting of a former film set. This gives rise to unexpected readings of the art of our current era with respect to all the media.

Whether large-format painting, photo series or video – in the current exhibition The Way We Are 4.0, it becomes clear how fundamentally different the image of man is. Social attributions and stereotypical ideas on the one hand, the desire for individual expression on the other. Who are we? Who do we want to be? The artists provide both exciting and diverse insights.

In the context of the exhibition The Way We Are 4.0.

OHIO – Im Betrachten liegt der Unterschied

Magazine presentation and conversation with Uschi Huber and Jörg Paul Janka

With OHIO, an artist’s project in magazine form became manifest in 1995. A magazine that is designed less like a filing cabinet or container and more like a stage. The current issue 17 offers space for video recordings and photographs of the engineer Michael Decker . “The recordings were made from 1991 to 2007 as a continuous documentation of his work in the field of heating construction and installation, as well as his craft activities in private.” At the moment the 18th edition is in the conception phase.

Uschi Huber and Jörg Paul Janka are coming to Bremen to the Center for Artists’ Publications at the Weserburg Museum of Modern Art at the invitation of the ERLKÖNIG project to talk about the magazine. How did it all begin and why? Who was involved in the beginning? How do the individual issues come about? What is it about? What do we see? Basic questions that bring exciting answers.

With the kind support of the Senator for Culture Bremen

What is the Proper Way to Display a Flag?

Exhibition opening

Flags are strong political symbols that are taken up in artistic works in a variety of ways. They stand for communal convictions and values, emphasize national sovereignty, mark territorial borders, include and exclude. But flags are also used for protest and resistance. The exhibition at the Weserburg focuses on current positions from an international context in order to reflect on the meaning, power, and use of flags through contemporary art production. Questions about our different ideas of identity, nation, and origin come into view.
