Opening
The project investigates the charged liminal space between a work of art and the audience by adopting the traditional means of public poster displays. The 30 drawings liberated from Giovanna Sarti’s web-based Drawing Storage include references that vary from individual psychology to political issues. Inserted into urban space they make for unusual, bewildering encounters and strange situations.
L40, 18.00h

Artists in Residence are: Byungseo Yoo, Saem Lee, Jonas Liverod, Penny Harpham, Julie Trudel, Steven Cottingham, Michael Trommer, Teodora Kotseva, Matthew Crookes, Wirad Kaddo and Reham Alkassar, a.o.

That rug really tied the room together at Das Gift
Opening
This group exhibition gathers the points of view of Igor Bleischwitz, Julia Ludwig and Detlef Suske.
The three artists - one photographer and two painters - each deal with space and colour in a special way, but they are connected by their common interest in using art as an instrument to discover and deconstruct reality, and to reveal its beauty. Yet pure naturalism is not of interest: instead each work invites us to doubt what we see in everyday life and...
