Sophie Reinhold | Kunstverein Ingolstadt

"Ein Pfund Orangen" - so lautet der Titel der 1926 entstandenen Erzählung von Marieluise Fleißer, welche die Beziehung zwischen einem jungen Mädchen und einem älteren Mann thematisiert, an deren Ende der Suizid der Protagonistin steht.  Die Ausstellung mit dem gleichnamigen Titel präsentiert Arbeiten von Künstlern, die sich mit den bei Fleißer gezeigten Machtstrukturen zwischen Mann und Frau befassen und diese kritisch hinterfragen.

Chen Wei | Buero Basel

Galleries ShanghART and Waldburger Wouters are pleased to announce “Drifting Along”, a solo exhibition by Chinese artist Chen Wei at their joint project space Buero Basel.
An intimate exhibition will display the final chapter of the artist’s photography and installation works dealing with people and spaces in metropolitan nightlife, a series the artist has been working on over the past six years. Chen Wei builds life-sized stage sets, employing light and colours, then constructs a narrative environment with blurred spatial boundaries. Depicted nightclub scenes in the artist’s works are always permeated with dampness - with vague chronology - and atmospheres reveal a strong sense of immediacy. During the shooting of Disco (nr #1001, #1005, #1006 in the exhibition), Chen Wei directed young urban people to embody being inebriated on the dance floor, thus capturing their body movements disappearing into the sound wave, as well as their mental state of forlornness and confusion. When human figures are invisible, like in Dance Hall Series (set of 8), the artist fills the pictures with objects: the disco ball on the empty dance floor, the iridescent mosaic wall, the cold glowing mirror, and the neon lights displaying intermittent advertising. All the scenes in his photography seem like a pantomime of revelry ready to start, but also like a group portrait of the exhaustion and hollowness after urban nightlife ends.

Goshka Macuga | Freud Museum London

This exhibition presents archival material touching on the origins and life of The International Journal alongside contemporary artworks, bringing together themes central to both psychoanalysis and art: translation, transformation, temporality, the unconscious, metaphor and dreams. The artworks address these ideas, creating a conversation that reverberates throughout the evocative rooms of the Freud Museum. The archival presentation explores the prehistory of the journal, the hidden role of women in its early years, its beginnings and connections with the Bloomsbury Group, and the influence of classical art and culture on Freud’s ideas and the visual identity of the International Journal.

Lorena Herrera Rashid | St. Pauls Kirche München

Erstmals werden in der Kirche St. Paul als bewährtem Standort für zeitgenössische Kunst sechs renommierte, international tätige Künstlerinnen in einer Gruppenausstellung präsentiert. Ursächlich für die Idee, der künstlerischen Stimme von Frauen einen Raum zu geben, ist das mit dem hl. Apostel Paulus in Verbindung stehende Wort von der „in der Kirche zu schweigen habenden Frau.“Auf dieses knapp zwei Jahrtausende geltende Diktum, das die Möglichkeiten von Frauen stark geprägt hat, reagieren die Künstlerinnen in großformatigen, skulpturalen und installativen Werken. In sehr unterschiedlicher und vielfältiger Weise positionieren sich Birthe Blauth, Patricija Gilyte, Sarah Lehnerer, Nina Annabelle Märkl, Lorena Herrera Rashid, Susanne Wagner innerhalb dieses innovativen Ausstellungsprojektes. Ihre Arbeiten, die sie explizit für die Ausstellung geschaffen haben, hinterfragen kirchliche und gesellschaftliche Rollenbilder und treten in künstlerischen Dialog mit der neugotischen Architektur und der Ornamentik des Kirchenraumes. Es entstehen raumgreifende Interventionen, die individuelle und spannende Positionen der sechs ausgewählten Künstlerinnen reflektieren.

Goshka Macuga | Kestnergesellschaft

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, the Kestner Gesellschaft is presenting a solo exhibition by the Polish-British artist Goshka Macuga (*1967 in Warsaw, lives and works in London). In her work, Macuga questions historiography, especially key ideas of modernism such as a belief in progress, authorship, and utopia. In detective-like research, she finds breaks, pitfalls, and ambiguities in a supposedly linear narrative.

Thomas Helbig | Märkisches Museum Witten

Begeistert von dem Wiedererstarken der Malerei in Deutschland schrieb Hans Kaiser in seinem Todesjahr 1982 die "Hymne an die Jungen". Mit ihrem Schaffen, das er abseits der Mode wähnte, bedeuteten die jungen Künstler ihm "ein Stück Glück". Kaisers Hymne aufgreifend, wirft die Ausstellung einen Blick auf die heutigen „Jungen“. Versammelt sind sechs Künstlerinnen und Künstler, deren Anliegen auch gegen den Trend zuallererst die Kunst selbst ist. In der Zusammenschau wird Kaisers vielfältiges Werk mit unterschiedlichen Positionen gegenwärtigen Kunstschaffens konfrontiert.

Karin Kneffel | Museum Frieder Burda, Baden-Baden

Sensual surfaces seduce the eye, inviting the viewer to simply enjoy. Karin Kneffel paints canvasses that exert a magical attraction. Her realist painting draws the viewer into sophisticated visual worlds in which her skillful arrangement of formal ornaments and the interplay of colors blend into an optical fireworks display. However, the works retain a secretive aloofness, as if the perfect, inviting, yet sealed-off surface is deliberately preventing a closer look.
