Göran Gnaudschun, Bed, Lisbon (Bett, Lissabon), 2018

I Follow Rivers
Photographs by Göran Gnaudschun

Exhibition in the HAUS am KLEISTPARK (Project Room)

16th July – 20th September 2020

In “I Follow Rivers” Göran Gnaudschun traces his life through a series of photographs that, at first glance, may seem trivial but which steadily grow, almost unintentionally, in symbolic power. The images and texts have to do with a process of self-examination. Where am I? How did I get to this point in my life? To what degree has the past been neutralized by my present? Associative ties stretching across images and times. A question of existence. In this extremely subjective work, again and again Gnaudschun seeks to reconcile his interior world with the images of the exterior world.

Norbert Wagenbrett, At the stairs (An der Treppe), 2006

Norbert Wagenbrett
In front of the masks

Exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts Leipzig

7th May to 16th August 2020

For 37 years now the Leipzig painter Norbert Wagenbrett (* 1954) has been investigating different ways of portraying people. For him, a portrait is more than the reproduction of a person, it is the visualisation of that person’s hidden self, rendered visible through the medium of painting. The roots of his hyper-realistic painting lie in the socially critical, exact search for truth in the New Objectivity movement and are influenced by his career: after an apprenticeship as an offset retoucher Wagenbrett studied at the HGB under Arno Rink, Wolfgang Peuker, Volker Stelzmann and Sighard Gille. The retrospective at the MdbK unites nearly 50 portraits from all of his creative phases and is also the first institutional exhibition in his home city.

Bettina von Arnim, Shaft (Schacht), 1972

Bettina von Arnim
The Cyborgs and their Traces. 1960 to 2020

Exhibition in the Art Association Lingen

12th May – 16th August 2020

The exhibition “The Cyborgs and their Traces” includes paintings in oil on canvas and etchings from the years 1960 to 2020. In many of her works Bettina von Arnim reflects the theme “Man / Machine” in an imaginative way. Against the background of the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961, the moon landing and the arms race during the Cold War, the pictures reflect the theme of being enclosed in metal and suggest that the technical shell has replaced man. They tell of the destruction of nature, animals and plants by the technocrats. (Extract from press release)
