“We hear about unrealized dreams, development, inequality, immigrants, social benefits, Nazis – in bundles delivered from the border between East and West Germany, through the mouths of foreigners who wanted to intimately know what random Germans have to say, and absorb different sides of the spectrum of Germans’ perceptions, society and culture.” Mund Stück @ the Residenz
The tone is one of protest. Here’s how our city’s Academy of Fine Arts is using its annual student artwork exhibition as a platform to demand better conditions. You can take part in the event through the end of Sunday, 17 February.
“Entering the space under construction at the time of my visit, I am greeted by Sarah Pschorn’s works like a cast of characters gathered on a stage.”
“It is in these places where we find the true spirit of creativity, where the magic happens and people from all walks of life gather to warm their souls and stare into the flames for a while.” Blinde Farben Exhibition, Tretjakow Gallery, Lindenau. Runs until 21 Dec.
Part 4 of our German series on local-based artists: “Lena Inosemzewa stellt uns Kindertage hinter verwischten Scheiben vor. Scheinbar ungewollte Flecken, Tupfen und Tropfen bilden hier eine Patina, ein Gegengewicht zur erinnerten Zeit.”
“Put to the test daily, people follow very individual impulses, other social groups represent different ideas and concepts, and theories often cannot be put into practice.” – Caroline Hake. The artist’s new solo exhibition has its opening reception tonight at Galerie b2, in the Spinnerei complex.
