End date Feb 23, 2014

Mit der Retrospektive „Werner Büttner. Gemeine Wahrheiten“ zeigt die Weserburg | Museum für moderne Kunst die bislang umfangreichste Schau mit Werken des Hamburger Künstlers Werner Büttner. Zusammen mit Martin Kippenberger und Albert Oehlen prägte er seit den frühen 1980er-Jahren nachhaltig die europäische Kunstszene. Bilder, Zeichnungen, Collagen und Skulpturen zeugen von Büttners Einfallsreichtum, Ironie aber auch beißendem Spott gegenüber den gesellschaftlichen Realitäten. Die Ausstellung hebt die Bedeutung von Werner Büttner in Bezug auf die Entwicklung der deutschen Malerei im ausgehenden 20. Jahrhundert hervor, die er maßgeblich mit beeinflusst hat und stellt ihn als eine ihrer zentralen Figuren und Vordenker dar. Die rund 300 Bilder, Zeichnungen, Collagen und Skulpturen der Ausstellung geben einen umfassenden Einblick in die dekonstruierende Arbeitsweise Büttners und lassen seine Kreativität und Eigenständigkeit hervor treten. Zur Ausstellung erscheint im Verlag Hatje Cantz eine Publikation, hg. v. Peter Weibel und Andreas Beitin

End date Feb 08, 2014

The Campredon Centre d'Art in Isle sur la Sorge, near Avignon, France, hosts the exhibition "From Art to Craft. Palm Springs, 1960" by the photographer Robert Doisneau, presenting hundreds of black and white images, many of them not shown before in public, together with documents, magazines and personal objects of the author selected by his daughter and the responsibles of his workshop. Besides these images, the exhibition shows additional 50 color photographs from the book "Palm Springs", taken by Doisneau in 1960 commissioned by Fortune magazine and that still had not been exposed. This extensive selection, further enriched with personal documents and testimonies lovingly collected by the photographer’s daughter, provides us with an updated critical rereading, showing us how the apparent spontaneous beauty of his images was, in actual fact, the fruit of considerable work. Robert Doisneau is one of the most important representatives of humanistic photography. For many years he has been looked upon as the minstrel of picturesque Paris, with a charming eye and a unique sense of the unexpected visual anecdote. As a result he has been championed as a poet of the "pure" moment. However, Doisneau's oeuvre is much deeper and complex than that reputation suggests. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with diChroma photography, Madrid. Catalogue " Palm Springs, 1960" by Flammarion, catalogue From Craft to Art by Steidl&Partner.

A ghost metro train, which has already been all around Europe, appears in Berlin. It ignores physics, gaps between buildings, space and time. Based on a light phenomenon, “the light Hole”, the ghost metro train turns into a travelling myth, which constitutes itself upon its loose artifacts, collected on the way. The train becomes an artifact itself, as it could appear at any public space―unpredictably, unable to be tracked by route or starting point. HR-Stamenov suggests a light spectacle, as a train literally “appears” inside a building, leaving passers-by unknowing of what they have just seen. The immediate attention, which the media installation produces, serves as an illustration of a rather nostalgic gesture, the fascination of observing a train passing by at times when this occurrence is rare sight. Similarly, it illustrates a spectacle in public space, as it transforms a three-dimensional object―such as a train―into a screen-based visual phenomenon. It is the size, the picture and the sound of a real train; it be-comes a screen, a motion picture, a blinking advertising sign. Located in the center of Berlin―at the LEAP venue on Karl-Liebknecht-Straße at Alexanderplatz―the Ghost Train is also in con¬stant reference to its original symbolic context. Every couple of minutes a train passes through or stops at the central city station (Alexanderplatz) which the glass-façade of the installation points at.

End date Dec 18, 2013

From its beginnings in 1975 to the present, the work of Silvie & Chérif Defraoui has engendered a historical and artistic body that forms an integral element of what we call, with a generalizing term, the art of the 1970s. Their multifaceted oeuvre from this period presents unexpected artistic forms, often involving materials and themes, objects and techniques, that were unheard of at the time. The entire series, which brought the Defraouis international renown, is collectively titled Archives du Futur. All pieces relate to this key concept, which synthesizes or questions a totality of space and time. With Rooms (Lieux de mémoire VI) (1976–2003), Galerie Susanna Kulli now revisits a set of works Silvie & Chérif Defraoui created together in the 1970s. In these large-format photographs, a superimposition takes place on the level of image, architecture, and writing: “The order of architecture determines the narrative, and the projections that build up in the place restore to it a diaphanous and contradictory memory. In the painted words, space fades into the photographic image,” the artists write.

End date Nov 30, 2013

Am Anfang des Prozesses, dessen Ergebnis die Arbeiten dieser Ausstellung bilden, stand eine Schatzsuche wie aus Kindheitstagen: Der emeritierte Kunstprofessor Wolfgang Nestler sammelte – während eines Sommerurlaubs in diesem Jahr auf Sardinien – Baumblätter, er presste sie in Bücher, er zeichnete sie. Diese Reduktion auf Einfachheit ließ Inspiration entstehen, eine Entfaltung in Dimensionen. Nestler experimentierte mit der Idee, das Blatt eines Baumes, gefunden in der Natur und transformiert durch die Zeichnung, erkannt in seiner Besonderheit und zugleich als Spiegel des Ganzen, durch ein Drehen um die Mittelachse zum Körper werden zu lassen. Als Material wählte Nestler Holz und schrieb damit ein neues Kapitel in seiner Künstler-biographie, die doch dominiert ist von der Auseinandersetzung mit Eisen und Stahl. Vom Baumblatt als einziger Vorlage hat sich Nestler dabei schon distanziert und lässt auch Gegenstände des Alltags zum Modell werden. Wolfgang Nestler war Meisterschüler von Erwin Heerich an der Staatlichen Kunstakademie Düsseldorf und 18 Jahre Professor für Plastik und Bildhauerei an der Hochschule der Bildenden Künste Saar, Saarbrücken, er wurde vielfach ausgezeichnet, seine Arbeiten sind in zahlreichen bedeutenden Sammlungen wie der Natonalgalerie Berlin, dem Kunstmuseum Bonn, dem Kunstmuseum Düsseldorf oder der Kunsthalle Mannheim sowie im öffentlichen Raum.

Opening Oct 13, 2013 at 11:00 am
Start date Oct 13, 2013
End date Feb 23, 2014

Das Stillleben ist eine Bilderfindung, in der Objekte der Natur und des alltäglichen Lebens in verführerischer Schönheit erfasst und wiedergegeben werden. Zugleich beinhaltet das Stillleben über das Dargestellte hinaus stets eine verschlüsselte Botschaft. Zwischen der dinglichen Opulenz, die die Freuden und Genüsse des Lebens vor Augen führt, und dem Hinweis auf die Vergänglichkeit liegt die ganze Tragweite des Motivs. Deutlich wird: Natur ist unaufhaltsame Metamorphose, ein ewiger Kreislauf von Werden und Blüte, Vergehen und Tod. Die Ausstellung "Still bewegt" setzt in 21 Filmen von 9 Künstlern die traditionelle Gattung gleichsam "in Bewegung". In den vergangenen 13 Jahren entstanden, erweisen sich diese Videos als ein bislang nicht gezeigtes Kompendium von beeindruckender Dichte. Alle Künstler beziehen sich in ihren Filmen letztendlich auf die Stillleben der Alten Meister, also auf die „reinen“ Ursprungsmotive. Entsprechend geschieht dies nicht mittelbar durch einen vergleichenden Blick auf Stillleben des 19. oder 20. Jahrhunderts, sondern durch die Hinzunahme früher Stillleben vor allem des 17. Jahrhunderts, etwa von Gerrit Willemsz. Heda, Frans Snyders, Georg Flegel oder Abraham Mignon. Dabei setzt die Ausstellung die malerische und motivische Innovation dieser großen Stilllebenepoche mit den avantgardistischen Ausdrucksformen des Films in Relation.

The Sovereign Forest
Opening Oct 12, 2013 at 11:00 am
Start date Oct 12, 2013
End date Feb 02, 2014

"The Sovereign Forest" is an enquiry into an understanding of crime, politics, human rights and ecology in a constellation of moving and still images, texts, books, pamphlets, objects, and seeds. Artist and social activist, Amar Kanwar is renowned for his compelling and meditative filmic essays, which evolve from documentary practice and explore the political, social, economic and ecological conditions of the Indian subcontinent. His multimedia works question the validity of historical ‘facts’ without human stories and poetry becomes a subtle but powerful force. Having journeyed through distress and dislocation, the works of "The Sovereign Forest" frequently return to the natural world and the implication of its ability to nurture and heal. Kanwar points to possible routes by which we can navigate. The exhibition debuts a new element of "The Sovereign Forest" and a commission by the artist especially for YSP. "The Listening Benches" are Kanwar’s first sculptural objects for the open air, sited around YSP’s Bothy Garden, a place for rest, pause and contemplation overlooking the 18th century Bretton Estate.

Hand in hand they act as a muzzle and response in times of social upheaval - the Gothic, Baroque, 20th Century and reinforced in the recent present. Passion, faith and superstition, power, pleasure, happiness and misery are expressed in expressive parable. Our exhibition unites established and current positions of these artistic attitude. Max Beckmann is represented, the great loner of German art of the interwar period; Markus Lüpertz and Gerhard Old Bourg available for the neo-expressionism, TRAK Wendish and Angela Hampel for the New Wild of the East and Undine Bandelin, Dana Meyer and Ulrike Theusner for the youngest generation. Gleichnis und Gestus sind die großen Gegenspieler der Kunst. Faust auf Faust, Hand in Hand agieren sie als Vorgesicht und als Reaktion. Kriege, Revolutionen und gesellschaftliche Umbrüche sehen sie voraus und resumieren sie. Sehen wir das Paar am Werk, sprechen wir von expressiver Kunst - in der Gotik, im Barock, im 20. Jahrhundert und verstärkt in der jüngsten Gegenwart. Der Gestus entspringt der Intuition, dem Moment, das Gleichnis der Weisheit und der Zeit. Sie gehören zusammen wie Leidenschaft und Ratio, Überschwang und Melancholie, Liebe und Tod, Kraft und Ermattung, Leben und Sterben.

The Dairy Art Centre is pleased to present ‘Island’, an exhibition bringing together the works of over forty established and emerging international contemporary artists. It is constructed as the unfolding chapters of a novel based on Aldous Huxley’s Island of 1962, utopian story and counterpart to the Brave New World written thirty years earlier. Inspired by some of the themes of the novel, the exhibition presents a selection of works from the collection of Dairy Art Centre founders, Frank Cohen and Nicolai Frahm, whilst also including loans from the Americas, Asia and Europe, and a dozen new commissions and first-time releases. New commissions include Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury’s giant mushrooms, a clock work by John Armleder, a new wall painting by U.S. artist Ann Craven, ambiguous material by the Order of the Third Bird, traces of evanescent wall mural by Tom Benson, new works by Ursula Mayer, and Franck Leibovici & Diemo Schwarz. Stepping into the exhibition the visitor is invited to retrace the steps of Bloomsbury-born Island protagonist Will Farnaby, observer, actor and catalyst, as imagined by the organizers of the exhibition, or to simply meander among singular artistic proposals. 'Island celebrates the polyphonic and singular voices of the participating artists and their works, inviting the exhibition's visitors to join in a shared experience of the here and now.

Gianfranco Baruchello

1962 - 1978 ventiquattro opere
Opening Oct 11, 2013 at 06:30 pm
Start date Oct 11, 2013
End date Jan 31, 2014

La mostra dedicata a Gianfranco Baruchello – ideata con l'amico Mauro Panzera che, recentemente scomparso, non ha purtroppo potuto seguire lo sviluppo del progetto – si focalizza su nucleo di ventiquattro opere storiche, che abbracciano gli anni dal 1962 al 1978, significativo per il delinearsi del suo linguaggio fino a una completa e complessa definizione. Attraverso la riduzione o meglio la miniaturizzazione di sistemi complessi, Baruchello su bianchi ma elaborati fondali, dà sostanza al suo Microcosmo, in cui gli elementi sezionati e ricostruiti sono definiti con miniata esattezza. Questa ricostruzione onirica e ironica, dettaglio infinitesimale dell'elemento insignificante o banale, si distende su una superficie policentrica: ogni singola minuzia, centrale e periferica a un tempo, tende a spezzare la visione d’insieme e accresce il senso di incertezza e di indeterminazione. The exhibition devoted to the historic works of Gianfranco Baruchello was envisaged by our friend Mauro Panzera whose recent passing meant that he was unfortunately not able to follow the project to its realisation. On this occasion, albeit well aware of the importance of Baruchello’s recent oeuvre, we have tried to put together a series of twenty-four pieces from 1962 to 1978. The compositions embrace the fundamental period of his activity when his first works came together, and he acquired his own precise code of expression by shattering or rather ‘reducing’ the world into pieces.
