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

I follow rivers
Photographs by Göran Gnaudschun

Exhibition in the HAUS am KLEISTPARK (Project Room)

16th July to 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.

Exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts Leipzig

7th May to 16th August 2020, extended until 27th September 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. The German language catalogue of the exhibition is available for 14 € at the museums pay desk.
