Rohkunstbau XXIII Art Festival at Lieberose Palace, Germany

01 Jul 2017

In this year´s ROHKUNSTBAU, curator Mark Gisbourne sheds light on the beauty of difference. In the palace Lieberose, the exhibition will show art works dedicated to the topic of alterity. Facing the increase in nationalist positions, the participating artists deal with pivotal questions:

What effects does the often described fear of the other have on societies? May artistic perspectives uncover the supposed gap between the other and the self? What is necessary to overcome the often simplified discussions on otherness and to direct them into more constructive modes?

Walking through the exhibition, the visitors encounter a spacious installation by Elmgreen & Dragset which, in a satiric and humorous way, touches the heaviness of the exhibition topic “alterity”. Seemingly lighter though appears the neon installation by Tatiana Macedo, with a statement on the relationship between refugees and bystanders. Amélie Grözinger takes up the perspective of the mirror, a main feature of the exhibition concept, and plays with the mirror’s reflective qualities. The art works were produced for ROHKUNSTBAU XXIII, in close relation to the place.

The following 11 artists are participating:

Elmgreen & Dragset (Denmark/Norway),

Simon English (Great Britain),

Shahram Entekhabi (Iran),

Jeanno Gaussi (Afghanistan/Germany),

Pélagie Gbaguidi (Benin [Senegal]),

Andrew Gilbert (Great Britain),

Ivan Gorshkov (Russia),

Amélie Grözinger (Germany),

Tatiana Macedo (Portugal),

Emo De Medeiros (Benin),

Toshihiko Mitsuya (Japan).

 

The exhibition runs from 1 July 2017 – 10 September 2017.

El programa expositivo del MUSAC está marcado por la propia disposición espacial de las salas en su conjunto. Centrado en una línea conceptual y social cercana a los postulados generales del museo y de su colección, las grandes exposiciones de MUSAC se despliegan a lo largo de las Salas 1 a 6 del museo, con un total de más de 3.600 m².El Laboratorio 987 se entiende como "sala de proyectos" del museo, a través de la cual se invita a comisarios jóvenes a realizar un proyecto curatorial concreto, más dinámico y versátil en sus propuestas que las grandes muestras. El Proyecto Vitrinas, situado en el vestíbulo del museo, suele albergar proyectos específicos, habitualmente centrados en labores editoriales, pedagógicas o relacionadas con la arquitectura.
