We mourn for a great artist, a wonderful person,
a precise observer of moods, of people, of the “behind it”.
He is missing.

In our thoughts we are with his family.

Hanna Nitsch // Ausstellungsbeteiligungen im Herbst 2020

Hanna Nitsch can be seen in two exciting exhibition projects this fall:

In the exhibition »KIND! ZUCKERBROT UND WUNDERLAND« (engl. »Child! Sugar bread and Wonderland«) in the Kloster Schussenried, Bad Schussenried, artists from all over Germany (including Annegret Soltau, Judith Samen, Justine Otto among others) use installations, sculpture, painting and photography to explore the spectrum of childhood between cotton candy and children’s tears, wild play and lonely fears. Why do we often remember with melancholy and longing the supposedly untroubled nature of being a child? These and other important questions are explored in the exhibition.
The exhibition covers almost 1000 m2 of the baroque convent building and parts of the park.

September 5, 2020, 4 p.m.
Due to corona, the opening ceremony in the library hall is limited to 60 people.

Duration of the exhibition:
September 6, 2020 – November 1, 2020

»Berührend«,(engl. »Touching«) is the name of the exhibition in the Paula Modersohn-Becker Museum, Bremen (Museen Böttcherstraße). The idea of the project was developed under the impression of the distance and distance rules for containing the corona virus in the spring of 2020. 65 works of art in the exhibition’s title contain the ambiguity of physical but above all emotional touch. Themes such as a mother’s care for her child, the bond between lovers, the violent crossing of boundaries or the involuntary closeness in everyday life are intensified by works of art by Marina Abramovic, Lucas Cranach the Elder, Robert Mapplethorpe, Pipilotti Rist and Hanna Nitsch, among others.

Duration of the exhibition:
September 19, 2020 – January 24, 2021

Opening hours:
Tue – Sun, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., Closed on Mondays
Different opening hours may apply on public holidays.

New publication: Franziska Stünkel – »COEXIST«

The new catalogue shows scenes from Franziska Stünkel´s travels through Asia, Africa, Europe and America over the past ten years. The artist is always on the lookout for natural reflections on reflective surfaces and completely avoids digital post-processing of her photographs. The result is an extensive view of the highly important question of coexistence in our time, completed by texts by renowned authors and scientists from various backgrounds: artificial intelligence, biology, psychology, happiness research, lingustics, culture and fear research.
