Sophie Reinhold / Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt | Kunstverein Reutlingen

15. September 2019 – 03. November 2019

This intergenerational exhibition brings together new paintings and objects by Sophie Reinhold (*1981) and the “Typewritings” of Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt (*1932). As different as the artists may be, their works share a manic perseverance, precision, and subversive humor. Reinhold’s canvases feature sometimes figurative, sometimes abstract compositions, and by mixing marble powder into paint and sanding or cutting the canvas, she questions the boundaries of painting. Sculptural objects that are reminiscent of furniture subtly hint at the domestic, connecting the public with the private. Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt ended her artistic practice when the Berlin Wall fell, but until then her Mail Art circulated worldwide. The postal system enabled her to escape the restrictions of the GDR. She created ornate architectural structures, waves, and abstract compositions using the characters of her typewriter.

Hodgkin & Creed | Kistefos Museum

18. September 2019 – 17. November 2019

This exhibition pairs the painter Howard Hodgkin (1932-2017) with the conceptual artist Martin Creed. It celebrates their conviction that art offers a framework through which we can express and come to terms with our complex emotional lives.
Pairing these artists offers a refreshing view of their work: The first exhibition conceived since his death, Inside Out takes us beyond a lyrical reading of Hodgkin's oeuvre and allows us to reconsider it in the context of contemporary art practice. At the same time, it approaches Creed's minimalist work through Hodgkin's expressionism, drawing out its essential emotional element, which is often overlooked.

Gelatin & Liam Gillick | Kunsthalle Wien

5. July 2019 – 7. October 2019

Stinking Dawn
is an exhibition in the form of a production process for a full-length feature film by Gelatin and Liam Gillick. The collaboratively developed and improvised experimental film will examine the limits of human tolerance in the face of oppression, political crisis and excessive self-delusion. It follows the destiny of four privileged young people who grow up at a time of crisis and move through various stages of development and self-reflection towards a final moment of collapse.

Thomas Struth | Guggenheim Museum

2. October 2019 – 19. January 2020

A comprehensive journey through more than four decades of work by the acclaimed German photographer Thomas Struth (b. 1954), this exhibition will offer examples of the different stages of his work and the social concerns that have driven the evolution of his influential art. With more than 130 works, the exhibition, first seen at the Haus der Kunst in Munich, is the most extensive showing of his artistic career to date and contains early works that have never been exhibited before. Research materials from his archive will also help to present the ideas he has been working on for the past years.

Lorena Herrera Rashid | St. Pauls Kirche München

06. June 2019 – 24. November 2019

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.

Thomas Schütte | Kunsthaus Bregenz

The German creator of sculptures and drawings, born in Oldenburg, is one of the most important contemporary artists.

His artistic output also encompasses watercolors, drawings, wood constructions, and models, as well as installations, such as Haus für Terroristen, which is being planned for the ground floor of Kunsthaus Bregenz.

Thomas Helbig | Märkisches Museum Witten

15. June 2019 – 22. September 2019

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

12. October 2019 – 8. March 2020

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.
