Cabinet exhibition in the Center for Artists' Publications

In the following years, she created numerous works in small to unlimited editions. The preoccupation with the North German landscape and the confrontation with a wide variety of biographies are themes that recur in her editions.

Künstlerbücher für Alles

Artists' Books for Everything

Exhibition in the Center for Artists' Publications

Artists' books are one of the special phenomena of contemporary art. Since their emergence in the 1950s, they have established themselves worldwide as a new art form. Artists' books are autonomous works of art in the form of a book. As works of art in a larger edition, they stand, as it were, for a democratization of art as well as for artistic mobility and networking.

Die Idee einer offenen Gesellschaft: Künstlerische Netzwerke im Kontext des Archivs Kees Francke

Cabinet exhibition in the Center for Artists' Publications

In 1945, philosopher Karl Popper called for an open society "in which people can breathe freely, think freely, in which each person has his or her value, and, in which society does not exert superfluous constraints on people." In the 1960s and 1970s, a new generation of artists began to create and reproduce artworks in the form of artists' books, magazines, newspapers, small mimeographed objects, postcards, graphic posters, and audio cassettes, among other forms.

Künstlerräume

In an exciting sequence, the Weserburg presents new artists' spaces for the fourth time. The artists self-confidently put their works and concepts up for debate. The exhibition thus provides insight into the diversity and quality of artistic production today, which are impressively reflected in the Weserburg's collections. It is precisely in the differences, contradictions, and confrontations that come to light in the process that the Weserburg's artists' spaces respond to the complexity of today's experience of the world. Several selected rooms have been set up by the artists especially for this exhibition.

Junge Sammlungen 04

The Vague Space. Sammlung Christian Kaspar Schwarm

Christian Kaspar Schwarm is a strategy consultant and co-founder of the online platform "Independent Collectors". His collection, which is currently being constantly expanded and redefined, primarily comprises young international art by lateral thinkers. If one reads the names of the artists who have so far found their way into the collection of the Berlin resident by choice, one finds cross-media positions with a high political and intellectual claim. At the same time, there are installations and video works that encompass entire rooms and are extremely sensual.

Dreamaholic

Kunst aus Finnland. Miettinen Collection

Fascination Finland-with the exhibition Dreamaholic, the Weserburg is providing insight into the current Finnish art scene for the first time. The works come from the Miettinen Collection, which is based in Berlin and Helsinki. In addition to established artists such as Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Jiri Geller, and Robert Lucander, the exhibition primarily presents young positions, many of which have yet to be discovered. They reflect the lively diversity of Finnish contemporary art and make it obvious how independently they engage with international trends and art debates.

OH WOW

Meisterschülerausstellung der HfK Bremen. Karin Hollweg Preis 2017

Art that astonishes, that is inventive and surprisingly new - OH WOW, the title of the master student exhibition questions, with an unmistakably ironic undertone, expectations and demands that are still placed on art today. The large collective exhibition, with which 17 master students of the Fine Arts program of the Bremen University of the Arts bid farewell to the completion of their studies, is exemplary in this regard - after all, it shows the diversity of artistic strategies today.

Erinnerungen

Cabinet exhibition at the Center for Artists' Publications
