25 Jahre ARTIC Magazin – Blick zurück nach vorn

Cabinet exhibition in the Center for Artists' Publications

Is ARTIC a magazine? Is ARTIC art? Is ARTIC a concept? ARTIC has driven booksellers, printers, designers, artists, authors and itself to the brink of despair. But maybe it also makes sense to do something that actually can't be done, because it turns the economy on its head.

What Paradise? - Sammlung Peters-Messer

I am not a piece of shit I am a piece of society - with letters powerfully painted on the canvas, the artist Bjarne Melgaard puts it in a nutshell: art demands its place in society. Since the mid-1990s, Florian Peters-Messer, a real estate entrepreneur from Viersen, has collected more than 350 works of contemporary, international art, which are being presented in this form for the first time in a museum context. The exhibition presents a pointed and sharply contoured selection of highly political, sometimes explosive works that address the social upheavals of our time in a critical, often oppressive way.

Artists' Books: Manifold Multi-page

Cabinet Exhibition at the Centre for Artists' Publications

Ordinary and yet exceptional: the medium of the book captivates us in the form of a work of art with many and varied manifestations. Under the title Vielfältig Mehrseitig (Manifold Multi-page), the Center for Artists’ Publications focuses on those artist’s books that depart from the conventional appearance of the book with a special kind of binding, an unusual form or a surprising detail.
The cabinet exhibition presents an international selection from its own holdings, from the 1960s to the present day.

Andrea Bowers

Light and Gravity

For the American artist Andrea Bowers (born in 1965, lives in Los Angeles), political involvement and artistic work cannot be separated. For more than two decades, she has stood for an artistic position which combines a well-thought-through aesthetic practice with acute political observation from a feminist perspective. Her creative output is characterised by a masterly balance between activist resistance and its transfer into artistic language. The exhibition at the Weserburg Museum for Modern Art is presenting the very first survey exhibition of Bowers’ creative production.

André Thomkins

everywhere, but hovering

André Thomkins, (born 1930 in Lucerne, died 1985 in Berlin) numbers among the most interesting and multifaceted artistic positions of the postwar era. But outside his native country of Switzerland, his poetical, humorous creations with their joy in experimentation have been unjustifiably overshadowed by his artist friends such as Daniel Spoerri, George Brecht, Robert Filliou or Dieter Roth. In artistic circles, on the other hand, the two-time documenta participant has been highly esteemed for generations as an inspiring catalyst.

Exhibition at the Centre for Artists' Publications

ERIK STEINBRECHER ZUR KASSE BITTE is an experiment lasting over six months for which the artist Erik Steinbrecher sets up his studio in the exhibition space of the Centre for Artists’ Publications and is regularly present there.
