Skulpturale Poesie

Sculptural Poetry. Exhibition in the Centre for Artists' Publications

Among the fruitful relationships between art and literature, the dialogue between poetry and sculpture plays a special role in contemporary art. With an international selection, the group exhibition is dedicated to the multi-faceted forms of sculptural poetry since the 1960s. Objects are inscribed with texts, or the letters themselves appear as three-dimensional works of art, form spaces and are the subject of actions and performances.

Teresa Burga. The Tightrope Walker

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. The exhibition 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.
