Exhibition in Berlin
Vernissage on Friday, May 24th, 2019, at 7 pm
We want to work together! For the third time we would like to inspire the common strolling in art productions between Basel, Hamburg and Berlin in a preferably unambitious way. First we went to The Westwerk in Hamburg with the exhibition BLUMEN IM HAUS ERSPAREN DEN PSYCHIATER for summer freshness and to get to know each other. In Basel at the amerbach studios the exhibition was titled BLUMEN IM HAUS EINES SPANISCHEN PSYCHIATERS. Now we come to Berlin to show BLUMEN AM RAND EINES ALTEN KRATER. We are looking for discourses about beauty and time, drawing and understanding. Together we will create the exhibition and understand it as a walk-in crater garden. Art like songs and poems. An exhibition with Roswitha Baumeister, Martina Böttiger, copa & sordes, durbahn*, Stef Engel, evi, nic & c, Martina Gmür, Mireille Gros, Chris Hunter, kap, Lysann König, Nara Pfister, Sara&Natascha, Silvia Studerus, Lilia Tirado Rosales, Jenni Tietze, Selma Weber, Mirjam Landolt, Lucie Tuma as a cooperation of the Kunstraum kaskadenkondensator, bildwechsel and the gutegrund ggmbh.
About title: the title BLUMEN IM HAUS ERSPAREN DEN PSYCHIATER was used by a berlin artist many years ago as an excuse for her flower addiction. In art bodies, flowers, ceramics, textiles, foam and still life are often belittled as “female” artists* materials, even though these materials are very popular in the art market. these soft-materials, the preoccupation with plants and animals and the staging of surprise in exhibition architecture are of interest. the value of the ephemeral, the joy of the common, surprising and beautiful and the unbelievability of a small view, a bend or a cutout is the big topic.
About gutegrund ggmbh und zu bildwechsel hamburg: gutegrund ggmbh supports the work of women+ artists and bildwechsel hamburg as an umbrella organisation for women+/media/culture with comprehensive collections and archives has been providing the know-how, infrastructure and basis for exemplary actions and cooperation of women+ artists internationally and regionally for over 30 years.
About bildwechsel basel: bildwechsel basel is exhibition and production-oriented and works together with the amerbach studios, the swiss performance network panch and the kaskadenkondensator in Basel. The location at the amerbach studios serves to provide information about work mainly in the video and performance field and functions as a bracket for private collections. Again and again bildwechsel basel works with benefit and info shows, interviews, wikipedia entry actions (edit-a-thons) and thematic exhibitions on the visibility of female artists* and bildwechsel. It collects and produces material about female artists*
