The 8th international, interdisciplinary and topic centered exhibition project.

Exhibiting something simultaneously means making it visible. But how do complex exhibitions come into being, the focal points of the theme, the compilation of works and contributions?
To sense the process lying behind this is like distinguishing the individual ingredients of a meal ready on one’s plate.

For ten years now we have developed widely fanned-out exhibition projects which we present over a longer time span. In 2014 in our project Augustina träumt in progressius (Augustina dreaming in progress), we began to make our process of development transparent and build it up together with the participating artists.

For our current project Schein und Spiegelung, ein RelationsPositionsProjekt (Appearance and Reflection, a Relation-Position Project), 2017/18, we invite the contributors to take part actively in developing the thematic focus. At the same time, this organically growing process can be accessed and experienced by the public. In the current exhibition concept it is not only possible for interested visitors, but also for the contributors to trace the changes and extensions by the works added and their flowing configuration even before the opening, and thus gain a better understanding of individual positions and their interrelations.
In our projects we always consider the multiplicity of forms of expression and aspects regarding content.

In the first round we were searching for works fanning out the theme, Appearance and Reflection:

Michael Rohde’s work with its perspective viewings of the houses of Nietzsche and Einstein draws associative lines to the philosopher Nietzsche and his fundamental critique of social morals, as well as to Einstein’s revolutionary vision of space and time. Julia Schewalie’s work deals with light and its reflections when impacting material, and the perception thereof. Edin Bajric addresses the topics of narcissism, appearance, and hiding-behind-it. And Helga Wimmer’s work with its history-charged mirroring of Innerer Nordbahnhof Stuttgart, a deportation site of thousands of citizens of Jewish extraction, opens up socially relevant areas.

The presentation of the first round also is the opening of the second application round. We are looking forward to the submission of works referring to the themes of the five works - Spiegel Schein, Vor und hinter der Zeit, nietzsche haus und einstein haus, Spiegel und Licht, and nylon#acrylic mirror - as well as their relations.
Furthermore, we are especially keen on corresponding scientific contributions expanding the theme, and are hoping for many visitors and lively exchange!

Reflection

I see
what I know
I recognise
what’s known
I remember
what’s named

I conclude –
Oh substance!
I am speechless
when there are no words
Uncompassed composed
in experience.

Appearance

Appears rich
How easy!
Appears elevated
How far above!
Appears ingenious
without mother’s mark.

Shining brightly, the light
without weight
effortlessly far and near
there and here
the shine grants me a glance
I say!
