BLADE MEMORY II
Saturday, 21 May, 4 - 8 PM
Welcome: Dr. Matthias Wiese (vice chairman)
Introduction: Rebekka Seubert (artistic director)
In the shell of the new premises of the Kunstverein, formerly used as an insurance office, the exhibition Blade Memory II pairs works by a young generation of artists from Israel with older ones from Europe. Deserted office buildings now stand for a turning point in time: the ruins of the office architecture provide a space to look at the world in its status quo, to order it, to contextualise it. Rather than exaggerating and overwhelming, the sober setting in an arrangement of old office furniture allows the art to appear almost incidental, giving it a chance to reclaim its autonomy outside the spectacle. Featuring works by Max Ernst, Avner Ben Gal, Marianne Berenhaut, among others, and a never-before-exhibited drawing by Dortmund-born Martin Kippenberger.
