ars viva 11/12 | Sprache - Language

Erik Bünger, Philipp Goldbach, Juergen Staack

The spoken and written word has long since found its way into the visual arts: As a motto, marginal note and quotation, as a collaged text fragment, as part of a performance, a video or a sound installation. The Kulturkreis der deutschen Wirtschaft of the BDI has been awarding prizes for architecture, music, literature and the visual arts since 1953. The 2011/12 competition for the visual arts was held on the theme of "Language". A jury decided on 3 current award winners, whose works will be presented to the public in Essen, Riga and now also in Bremen.

CIRCUS WOLS

Eine Hommage

He is one of the most important artists of the 20th century, but hardly anyone knows his name. He is considered by art history to be a pioneer of Informel painting, yet the complexity of his artistic existence defies categorization. He left Germany in 1932 as a 19-year-old to be on the pulse of the art of the time in Paris. He became part of the Parisian bohemian scene and yet always remained a great loner. For throughout his life he struggles to find an existence beyond the bourgeoisie, and in the process gets caught up not least in the turmoil of the National Socialist war with the culture of Europe.

John Smith

Worst Case Scenario. Filme von 1975-2003

British artist John Smith has been making experimental films for over three decades. With their calculated formal language and ironic playfulness, they are among the most important works of the contemporary film avant-garde. They are enigmatic, perceptive and, above all, funny. John Smith challenges us not to take anything we hear or see at face value, putting the criteria of fact and fiction to the test. His creative use of sound and image and the lightness and irony with which Smith creates space for viewers to rethink their own perceptions are at the forefront.

Ray Johnson

I like funny stories. Sammlung Maria und Walter Schnepel

The New York Times called him "the most famous unknown artist in New York". Indeed, Ray Johnson (1927-1995) has long remained an insider tip. Yet the significance and influence of his work cannot be overstated. For him, art was a communicative process that could unfold away from established institutions. Following this idea, he built up a far-reaching network of correspondence in the 1960s under the name "New York Correspondance School" and is thus considered the founder of the international Mail Art movement.

Chronische Fluxitis

Sammlung Maria und Walter Schnepel

The Bremen-based collector couple Maria and Walter Schnepel are enthusiastic about works by artists who are today grouped together under the term Fluxus. Their avant-garde spirit manifested itself since the 1960s in Europe, the USA and Japan. The Fluxus artists refused to go to museums, organized the first happenings and actions, and used all the media available at the time for their subversive works of art.
