Exhibition: Christoph Niemann

Exhibition: Christoph Niemann

You can look at the sky and see only clouds, or you can lift your head up and see animals, persons, Gods and all sort of objects. Even by taking a walk on the street you can see pieces that become faces on the subway or trees that say hello. You just need to have some imagination to deconstruct everyday images and create some new. This is what happens to the graphic artist Christoph Niemann. His gaze goes beyond what is established and convert everyday objects in stories adding his…

Inspiration: Post-Colonialism: Latin American Women Artists (1960-1980)

Inspiration: Post-Colonialism: Latin American Women Artists (1960-1980)

Women have been ignored for so many years in fields like science, engineering, technology and even art, but it doesn’t mean they didn’t exist. If we talk about Latin America during the decades of the 60s, 70s, and 80s we can think the indifference is even bigger, but surprisingly, during these years so many feminism movements emerged there. The eight hours symposium Post-Colonialism: Latin American Women Artists (1960 – 1980) is going to take place at Haus der Kunst, where some artists and curators will discuss feminism at that time…

Post-feminism is a mixture of feminism, pop culture, and feminity. This new era is marked by the fact that the next step…

Exhibition: Magic Colors

Exhibition: Magic Colors

What have in common the artists Roman Klonek, Fabian Freese and Jessus Hernandez? Apart from the use of bright colors, they use the “hard edge”, a type of painting in which, abrupt transitions are found between color areas that are often of one unvarying color. By setting two-dimensional color areas next two each other, an imaginary room is created and becomes accessible to the spectator. However, their ideas and artistic approaches are different. The Heitsch Gallery presents the work of these three artists in a collective exhibition called Magic Colors. Roman Klonek…

New Forms Of Beauty – Exhibition

New Forms Of Beauty – Exhibition

Functionality is not at odds with good design, quality, and beauty. The artist Stefan Lenhart explores this idea joining forces with other seven artists from Munich, Vienna, and Berlin in the exhibition New Forms Of Beauty. Can be a common object a work of art? Apparently, the answer is yes. iPod Shuffle can be worn as a piece of jewelry or Ingo Maurer’s lamps can be more than light objects. Where is the boundary between art and function? This and other questions are answered in this exhibition, exploring visual art and…
