The Way We Are 1.0

Starting at the end of March 2019, the collection presentation “The Way We Are 1.0” will be featured on two floors constituting more than half of the overall exhibition space of the Weserburg. The exhibition includes works from a large number of collections, some of which have enjoyed a long association with the institution while others are new additions; also on display will be works from the Weserburg’s own collection as well as loans by artists who will be participating in a show at the Weserburg for the first time.

Erik Steinbrecher, ohne Titel, ohne Jahr, Sammlung Weserburg Museum für moderne Kunst / Zentrum für Künstlerpublikationen


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. Erik Steinbrecher becomes a "living sculpture" (in progress) in a studio open to the public. The experiment represents a process, i.e. a process extending over a certain period of time, in which something arises or takes place. The artistic installation of the studio situation presents both the artist Erik Steinbrecher himself and his artistic practice.

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.
