das wort steht im raum – sculptural poetry

Cabinet 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, but one that has received very little attention. The exhibition focuses on a tradition of experimental poetry and visual art since the 1960s, in which texts appear as three-dimensional (art) works.

Luca Vitone. Macht

The Italian artist Luca Vitone (*1964, lives in Milan) traces the manifold imprints that are deposited in spaces and determine both their appearance and our idea of them. In creating his conceptual portraits of different places, he incorporates emotional as well as cultural, social as well as historical, economic as well as political aspects. Since the 1980s, he has used film, painting, photography, installation, audio piece, or scent installation to pose questions about memory of and longing for home, about migration and the representation of spaces.

Shunted Sculptures Fleeting Words

Meisterschüler*innen der HfK Bremen

The exhibitions of the Meisterschüler*innen, which have taken place at the Weserburg annually since 2011, give a multifaceted insight into the quality and variety of current art production in Bremen. A special highlight is the Karin Hollweg Prize-giving, linked to the presentation. With a total of 15,000 euros, it is one of the most important art sponsorship awards at German art schools. Half of the prize money is reserved for an institutional solo exhibition in Bremen. In 2020, 19 artists will take part in the presentation, which will exclusively show new, partly location-based works.

Elina Brotherus

Why not?

Elina Brotherus (*1972 in Helsinki) is internationally known for her self-portraits. And the fact is that she herself may be seen in almost all of her photographic and video works. These include series resembling diaries, photographed landscapes and situational mood-pictures. The exhibition at the Weserburg directs attention to more recent works and groups of works created since 2016. Here the Finnish artist appropriates various contemporary concepts of art and integrates them into her own unmistakeable aesthetic. She thereby follows Arthur Køpcke’s motto: ‘People ask: Why? I ask: Why not?’
