Yael Bartana. Utopia Now!

Yael Bartana (*1970 in Israel; lives in Amsterdam and Berlin) is considered to be one of the most important international artists of her generation. Her films, photographs, objects, neon works and performances attempt to connect the past and the present in order to develop speculative futures. Bartana describes her manner of working as “Pre-enactment” – not a reproduction of what has been, but rather, an anticipation of what is to come. The artworks selected for "Utopia Now!" includes film installations, photographs and neon works from the last ten years as well as the world premiere of Bartana's latest film.

Martin Reichmann. Hyper!ons Epiphysis

Martin Reichmann. Hyper!ons Epiphysis

Massive sculptures, rubble-like remains — the works of Martin Reichmann have a brutish character. His favorite material is concrete, a substance that he transforms into coarse sculptures which not infrequently become a central part of spatial stagings or performances. Arising at the Weserburg on the occasion of his first institutional exhibition is a large environment, a rubble landscape covering the entire area devoted to the exhibition.

Monochromy. About the aesthetics of published art

Exhibition at the Centre for Artists' Publications

In monochromatism (Greek monochromatos = single-colored), artistic works consist of single colors. In the field of artists’ publications, conceptions involving monochrome surfaces have arisen repeatedly ever since the 1950s, with the goal of achieving as high a degree as possible of concentration and simplification. Here artists conduct a thematic investigation not only of aspects of color, aesthetics or emptiness, but also of philosophical and religious nothingness.
