ANKOMMEN (Arrival) – the Path 

Different aspects of "Arrival" are presented to you on four stories in KUNSTWERK. On the ground floor and 1st storey of KUNSTWERK, we give you the opportunity to arrive in the exhibition and in the topic for yourself. Photographs by Ülkü Süngün tell of coming to terms with one’s own origin and identity, which is always carried regardless of the point of departure. Works by Miwa Ogasawara, Karin Kneffel and Ute Lindner tackle window motifs in different ways, so even the viewer arrives, pauses and looks forward. Videos by Marco Schuler show that arrival itself can be a huge endeavour and challenge.

FLOOR 2

ANKOMMEN (Arrival) – A Reflection on Time and Place

In the large room on the 2nd storey of the building, the theme of arrival unfolds into different spatial and temporal dimensions. In dealing with National Socialism and the period of the Third Reich, the works by Gottfried Helnwein, Katrin Ströbel and Eva Leitolf set historic and current areas of tension. A series of photographs by Juliane Eirich describes a very personal artistic approach to the culture of South Korea. The pictorial world of New Zealand writer and visual artist John Pule comes from a trip to his home country, his own past and the roots of his own identity. Likewise, the pieces by Marco Schuler originate from personal reflection.

FLOOR 3

ANKOMMEN (Arrival) – From Here

On the 3rd and top storey of the building, pictorial spaces and landscapes spread out, which allow us to be carried off into inner worlds of imagination. Emotively connected by the figure of the naked person, the digitally edited photographs by Chinese artist Chi Peng take the viewer to real-unreal (city) landscapes. On a small scale yet in a monumental way, the drawings of Beate Terfloth trace the landscape of the island of Pantelleria to the South of Italy. The works of American artist Max Cole maintain a meditative character, with calm and at the same time rhythmically placed, strong horizontal shades of black, white and grey – both in the production and in the perception. Pictorial spaces with cloud writing, figures and landscape elements create own thought spaces in the pictures of Brigitte Waldach.
