Say it isn’t so

Naturwissenschaften im Visier der Kunst

The sciences have always been a subject and source of inspiration for artists, influencing the artistic language of form, providing the know-how for the execution of certain works of art, being declared art, synthesized with art, and criticized by art. Since the end of the last millennium, a striking number of artists have been inflamed by a renewed interest in the natural sciences. They botanize plants, typify cow stains, build insect observation stations. They use scientific jargon, scientific forms of illustration, or create idiosyncratic models.

Die Beichte eines komischen Heiligen

Eine Videoinstallation von Isolde Loock und Wolfgang Stephan Kissel

Čechov's theater has lost none of its worldwide fascination to this day. In the Soviet Union, many intellectuals lived with the characters of MÖWE or KIRSCHGARTEN for decades, even identified with them to a high degree. After the collapse of the communist system, familiar viewing habits and interpretations were increasingly questioned, and the complexity of the dramas was rediscovered. It remains controversial in the West as well as in the East to what extent the undecidable ambivalences or the symbolic and/or absurd elements cancel out the realism of the dramas.

Stabile Seitenlage

Von der Komplexität der bildenden Kunst

Stabile Seitenlage - Von der Komplexität Bildender Kunst" shows works by former fellows of the Kunstfonds. The ten artists represented here work with different media, techniques and materials, so at first glance they do not reveal a common "thematic" concern or even one tied to a genre. Instead, the positions presented refer to contemporary social, scientific, political, and societal phenomena across genres. And they do so in a highly subtle, sometimes also very provocative way.
