Claas Gutsche

Material, Haptik, Figuration und Körper sind Begriffe, die stark mit dem Fachbereich Kunst der Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle verbunden sind. So untersucht nun die Ausstellung »Körpereinsatz« anhand von 13 Positionen Lehrender und Absolventen der BURG die künstlerische Auseinandersetzung mit dem Menschen, seiner Verfasstheit und seinem Körper.

Die Frage nach dem Körper, nach Körperlichkeit und der Rolle des Menschen, der Künstlerin, des Künstlers in verschiedenen gesellschaftlichen Formationen bildet dabei den Ausgangspunkt für die Ausstellung. Gleichermaßen werden grundlegende Fragen nach der künstlerischen Laufbahn, wechselseitigen Einflüssen in der künstlerischen Lehre und der Produktivität des Dialogs zwischen den Generationen, aber auch nach Wegen zur Formulierung einer ästhetischen Botschaft gestellt.

Sophia Pompéry @ Møenlight Sonata – A homage to the starry sky of Møn

44Moen, Denmark

6/2/2018 – 9/9/2018

Sophia Pompéry

Nevin Aladağ, Elina Brotherus, Ceal Floyer, Pravdoliub Ivanov, Sophia Pompery, Mariana Vassileva, Richard Wentworth, and Mariaa Wirkkala. 

To celebrate its tenth anniversary, Kunsthal 44Møen will put together a special constellation of stars under the lyric name "Møenlight Sonata", alluding to Beethoven's 14th sonata for piano, which he also referred to "quasi una fantasia". The show will present a cross-section of the Kunsthal's program so far, as well as newly commissioned works by artists from Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Great Britain and Turkeythat are still new to the island. What connects the works of these individual artists is the specific use of light, as subject and material. Light (or the absence of it) is not only one of the oldest topics in art history, but also a special condition on Møn – during the day, but also at night.The 10 year anniversary of Kunsthal 44Møen is conceived to be a summer festival, an invitation to all groups of local residents and visiting guests to celebrate the sky over Møn.

Erwin Olaf @ Rijksmuseum receives core collection

5/25/2018

Erwin Olaf

Taco Dibbits, director of the Rijksmuseum: Erwin Olaf is one of the most important photographers of the final quarter of the 20th century, and his work is deeply rooted in the visual traditions of Dutch art. We are therefore delighted and honoured to be able to add his work to the Rijksmuseum collection.

Erwin Olaf’s decision to transfer his core collection to the Rijksmuseum is motivated by his long relationship with the museum and the inspiration he draws from its collection, particularly the Old Masters.

The Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf donated to the Rijksmuseum his core collection, the fully representative range of work spanning his entire career. The Rijksmuseum will be the recipient of a total of 500 objects, comprising prints, portfolios, videos, magazines, books and posters. The vast majority are donations; 60 photographs and three videos have been acquired with the support of the BankGiro Loterij.

‘The challenge is in the moment, the time is always now.’ (James A. Baldwin)

Der Schein der Dinge

7/28/2017 – 9/24/2017

Sophia Pompéry

Berlin-based artist Sophia Pompéry (*1984) is a keen observer. With a phenomenological vision onto the world she questions the deceptive appearance of things and opens up unusual perspectives on apparently well-known objects and conditions.


At studio space 45cbm she presents a set of works, that pay homage to the elusive moment, with a focus on the transition from one state of being to another. In a playful experimental set-up physical and optical regularities are being fathomed out, and philosophical questions concerning space, time and self are raised.

Malgorzata Szymankiewicz - Reflecting View

6/20/2017 – 7/30/2017

Malgorzata Szymankiewicz

opening: 20.06.2017, 6pm


The cycle of works created as a part of the REFLECTING VIEW exhibition
is related to public space and addresses the problem of overproduction
of images in the contemporary visual culture. Her object of interest is
the material proofs of advertising and marketing activities in the form
of boards, display cases, lightboxes and banners. Using post-painting
imaging methods, Szymankiewicz processed them, creating objects that
work mainly through their rhythm, colour and texture. Examining the
language of advertising – which imposes a specific way of seeing and
manipulating viewer/consumer – the artist was looking for the
possibility of creating abstract forms and objects capable of generating
new meanings.

REFLECTING VIEW is yet another project in which Szymankiewicz refers to
the issue of creators getting entangled in the mechanisms of economy
that determine the functioning of the functioning of the art market and
advertising market. The artist emphasises the unconscious activities
which are reflected not only in the ways the works are presented, but
also in the process of building the position of young creators.
