PASSED ON, about things passed on from the ART OF EMERGENCY RESIDENCIES


In two years of The Art of Emergency program, 20 participants, the artists in residence, have left objects from the context of their respective work at the  Arbeitszimmer thealit, for the following residency. The aim was to modify the objects left behind, if possible, with a reference to 'Emergency' and to leave behind a new object themselves. An exhibition of these objects forms the conclusion of the program.

With objects by: Paule Potulski, Ariane Litmeyer, Jana Piotrowski, Maria Arzt, Dorsa Eidizadeh, Vicc Repasi, Vivian Hernández Ramírez, Víctor Artiga Rodríguez, Müge Pelin Sen, Karolina Koßmann, Clara Alisch, Elizaveta Kovalenko, Guida Ribeiro, Mari Lena Rapprich, Florian Witt, Anja Fußbach, Susanne Katharina Willand and soon Carla Anacker, Julia Höft and Emilia Sting.

Claudia Reiche and Andrea Sick will comment on these objects and place them in new contexts in a finissage presentation.

March 12

Will be postponed


about things passed on from the ART OF EMERGENCY RESIDENCIES



Unfortunately, we have to postpone the upcoming event - the conclusion of our program THE ART OF EMERGENCY. The planned finissage presentation passed on, about things we have passed on from the ART OF EMERGENCY RESIDENCIES, will not take place on March 12. Instead, we will find a way to make up for this in a slightly different form and at a different location and will invite you again soon. There are ideas, more on that soon ...

That was and is the point: In two years of the program THE ART OF EMERGENCY, 20 participants, the artists in residence, have left objects from the context of their work in the workroom thealit, for each subsequent residency. The aim was, if possible, to modify the found objects with a reference to 'Emergency' and to leave behind a new object themselves. Claudia Reiche and Andrea Sick set themselves the task of exhibiting this, placing it in a new context and commenting on it.
