November 23, 2023 at 7 PM | Juergen Staack
On the occasion of our current solo exhibition by Juergen Staack ABBERATION EROSION V1S10N, the artist will be on site for an artist talk on November 24. The event starts at 6 pm.
Juergen Staack is a German minimal art and conceptual artist. Early on, he developed his own forms of expression in conceptual photography, which focuses on both the translatability of photography into language and the material fragility of the analog and digital photographic image. To this end, he works multi-materially: with performance, sound, video, sculptures or photographs.
September 27, 2023 at 7 PM | Magdalena Jetelová, Sofia Sominsky and
Dr. Ingrid Lohaus
For more than 50 years, Magdalena Jetelová's cross-border work has challenged a changing audience to think and experience art differently. Art as a means of survival continues to characterize the autonomy of her condensed visual language, which - always stubbornly bypassing themes and taboos of the zeitgeist - continues to aim into unfathomable interstices.
Together with the artist we talked about her works such as Pacific Ring of Fire or Russzeichnungen, its genesis, motivations and developments in Jetelová's work.
July 27, 2023 at 7 PM | Janina Roider and
Dr. Birgit Sonna
Munich-based artist Janina Roider integrates a multifaceted connection of elements from art history and her personal life into her work. Her pieces often feature self-portraits and play with various role models, such as Superwoman. By employing such iconic figures, Roider explores the construction of gender roles and stereotypes. She critically questions the established norms and expectations associated with these role models, reflecting on the different societal constraints they entail.
Additionally, her images, influenced by advertising aesthetics and public space posters, engage with consumer culture and the influence of mass media. By combining elements from art history and the advertising world, Roider raises questions about the manipulative strategies and ideals present in our society.
July 19, 2023 at 7 PM | Harm van den Dorpel, Dr. Annette Doms and Hanns Lennart Wiesner
Berlin-based artist Harm van den Dorpel combines technology, aesthetics, and narration in his works. Using digital media such as algorithmic art and data-driven installations, van den Dorpel creates artworks that continuously renew and develop their own "life" over time, without altering the original artistic approach. His works explore the interaction between human existence and the digital sphere through the composition of software and language, raising questions about identity and the influence of technology on our perception.
June 22, 2023 at 6 PM | Jieun Park | Writing, Hiding, Disappearing, and Staying
During the performance, the artist uses red oil chalk to immortalize her past on one of our gallery windows. She inscribes significant moments and memories from her personal life and overlay the text with additional writing until it becomes unreadable and incomprehensible to anyone except herself, almost like a form of purification.
The essence of the performance will lie in the act of writing. Understanding the content being written during this process will not be the focus; instead, it will serve as a method for the artist to process emotions, especially those linked to the past, and a reminder of writing's significance as a fundamental component of social interactions.
