The Way We Are 3.0

The exhibition brings together more than 190 works from different eras and contexts and addresses both contentual and formal issues. Seven thematic areas formulate artistic approaches to depicting the human being, develop a current picture of Germany, engage in multifaceted play with everyday life or the medium of the book, and investigate minimalist tendencies, photographic procedures or aesthetic contradiction. And with Mel Chin an artist’s bar even makes an appearance.

Peter Piller - Richard Prince

With Richard Prince (*1949) and Peter Piller (*1968), two artists focusing respectively on American myths and the realities of life in Germany — different generations, diverse worlds —, there is an encounter at the Weserburg Museum for Modern Art between two extremely original artistic oeuvres offering exemplary presentations of life and thought in and through pictures.

Peter Piller – Archive of Books

Cabinet exhibition in the Centre for Artists‘ publications

For his artistic work, Peter Piller has always preferred the formats of artists’ publications. As a rule, he transfers selected groups of artistic works into the form of an artist’s book, a postcard or graphic edition. The images used come from the artist’s archive. They come from different contexts. For example, he has categorised about 7,000 press photos into more than 100 subject areas.
