NEUSPRÉCH

An exhibition in the Centre for Artists' Publications

"NEUSPRÉCH (NEWSPÉAK) is language infested, infected with art. Speaking with art - as art." NEUSPRÉCH takes up the Orwellian term in a newly accentuated way and with a view to the resistance in the context of visual art. The project comprises twelve artistic positions, including the two curators Oliver Ross and Simon Starke, supplemented and in dialogue with a selection of artists' publications from the collections of the Centre for Artists' Publications.

Birgit Jürgenssen. Ich bin.

Birgit Jürgenssen (1949-2003) belongs, along with VALIE EXPORT and Maria Lassnig to the artistic avant-garde of the 1970s in Austria. Subsequent generations of artists throughout the world were deeply influenced by her creative output as an artist, teacher and observer of cultural and social conditions. Tying into art-historical traditions such as Surrealism and Antiquity, she developed an autonomous and varied oeuvre which, in addition to a rich store of drawings and photographs, also includes sculptures, objects, videos and collaborative projects.

EUROPE in the mirror of Artists' Publications

Cabinet Exhibition at the Centre for Artists' Publications

Across all political borders, artists have been treading new artistic paths in Europe since the 1950s. The presentation from the Centre for Artists' Publications own holdings shows the extent to which the social and cultural development of Europe is reflected in posters, artists' books and other artists' publications. One occasion for the exhibition is the German EU Council Presidency from July 2020.

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?’
