Concepts and Proposals

REVIEW I: THE SLASH OF WAR - Art Investigations

As the great exhibition Fantastic Women in the Schirn 2020 highlighted, it has a long tradition for female visual artists to get involved socially and politically. For her work, the boundaries between art forms such as painting, writing, documenting and taking photos are fluid. The project of three artists/ journalists Zehra Dogan – Barbara Schober - Asya Umarowa is also linked to this tradition.

REVIEW II: UPinARMS - nGbK Berlin - Competition ART in Public Space

The topic of UPinARMS was the critical examination of the arms business. Through artistic approaches, historical conditions, economic and political entanglements in the arms trade and its extent and ambivalences should be made aesthetically and physically tangible.

"Art in the Underground" is a competition for artists announced by the New Society of Fine Arts. Drafts for subway stations in Berlin were to be submitted - as an alternative to the advertising posters on the back tracks.

KOSMOS LEM - Centenary of Stanislaw Lem - 2021

2021 was the centenary of Stanislaw Lem's birth and one reason to remember my interview with him in Krakow - long time ago :-) and reason enough to take part in the project "Kosmos Lem - ART in Public Space" (Draft and Virtual Testinstallation RZ Potsdam)

The Star Driver on Planet Circia, Odyssey of the Pilot Pirx, The Mental Hospital for Robots (logbook Machina X one-three) - quotes and video stills from my interview with Stanislaw Lem in Krakow for the ARD web project "Machina X"

Review of the ART in Public Space Project

"Verrücken der Ansicht" - Hölderlinturm - Tübingen

Invisible during the day, but in the dark a transparent, apparently “crazy”, enigmatic appearance - as little fixed as our memories.
