Moving with the artist in APPARAT at Kunstverein Braunschweig, Jun 3 – Aug 13

30 May 2017

The APPARAT group exhibition at Kunstverein Braunschweig opens June 3 and is running to August 13. 

Curated by Christina Lehnert, the show will explore “shift of perspectives and the alliance of humans and machines” and includes work by Aleksandra Domanović, Andreas Fischer, Pakui Hardware, Alexander Kluge, Daria Martin, Sandra Mujinga, Wyatt Nihaus, Margaret Raspé, Raphaela Vogel and Jan Vorisek.

 Inspired by Margaret Raspé (*1933), a filmmaker from the 1970’s who mounted the camera on her head to record her daily activities, the artists respond on what it means to ‘move’ with the artist. Focusing on a younger generations relationship to this idea and our relationship to recording now, the exhibition examines the apparatus as a way to approach the subject of “producing art, expanding human capabilities in the sense of a posthuman man-machine, and as an independent system, that creates its own narratives and immersive spaces.”

Tiril Hasselknippe @ Kunstverein Braunschweig, Dec 3 – Feb 12

2 December 2016

Tiril Hasselknippe is presenting solo exhibition Station at Kunstverein Braunschweig, opening December 3 and running to February 12.

The exhibition is based on a research trip in North America’s Mojave Desert, where the Norwegian artist deals with “the post apocalyptical vision of a survival station amidst a wayless desert landscape.” Hasselknippe’s site-specific installation includes three separate though connected sculptures, coated and layered with concrete, a fire pit on a wooden structure and a newly developed film projection. Together they examine ideas of interior space through its juxtaposition with the vast expanse and the solitude of the desert:

“This way the artist creates a place of retreat, which concisely captures in a nutshell the popular drop-out fantasies of a “Generation Angst” and other existing protectionist tendencies in societies.”
