KlangTräume

Music, noise and sound experience in the kek kindermuseum

Try it out, experiment playfully, change it and help shape it! In the interactive exhibition KlangTräume you can reinvent the history of the Bremen Town Musicians, hop melodies, feel the volume, compose timbres, get to know the pitch in the ship in a bottle, listen to your own voice for 100 m, set different rhythms on the large music box, hear your heartbeat very loud, play with your voice.

On the occasion of the 200th birthday of the Bremen Town Musicians, the kek Children’s Museum, together with the Bremen sound artist Ricardo Castagnola, will give the four famous adventurers a performance full of sound. At a specially designed hands-on station, visitors* can retell the story of the town musicians. The exhibition will also be complemented by exciting stations by akki e.V. (action and culture with children), at which elementary characteristics of sound such as volume, pitch, timbre and rhythm can be explored.

Talking Heads

Artist talk with Achim Manz

The extensive work of Bremen-based artist Achim Manz (*1957 in Lünen) oscillates between art, architecture and design. In a conversation with curator Ingo Clauß, sculptural objects and spatial interventions are presented that thematize the relationship between man, object, and space in a fascinating way. Afterwards, a joint tour of the exhibition So wie wir sind 1.0 follows with works by international artists who deal with the aesthetics, development and transformation of urban spaces.

Künstlerbücher. Vielfältig Mehrseitig

Cabinet exhibition at the Center for Artists' Publications

Ordinary and yet special: the medium of the book captivates in the form of a work of art through the most diverse manifestations. Under the motto “Versatile Multipageted”, the Center for Artists’ Publications focuses on those artist’s books that deviate from the conventional appearance of the book due to a special kind of binding, an unusual form or a surprising detail.

The cabinet exhibition presents an international selection from its own holdings, from the 1960s to the present day.

Andrea Bowers

For the American artist Andrea Bowers (born in 1965, lives in Los Angeles), political involvement and artistic work cannot be separated. For more than two decades, she has stood for an artistic position which combines a well-thought-through aesthetic practice with acute political observation from a feminist perspective.

The exhibition at the Weserburg Museum for Modern Art is presenting the very first survey exhibition of Bowers’ creative production; it includes some 35 large-format wall works and drawings in felt-tip pen, films and word-objects, installations and small-format works in graphite from the last fifteen years. Moreover, this is the first presentation of the internationally renowned artist in northern Germany.
