Toulu Hassani | Sauerland Museum, Arnsberg

Dec 01, 2023 – Jan 14, 2024

"One of the main objectives of her work is to understand how we humans approach the world as a whole, how we seek to situate ourselves in relation to the complexity of things and events, how our thoughts define ordering lines through a reality that ultimately refuses to be given meaning and order. She explores how the individual, from Latin individuum (‘an indivisible thing’), relates to the infinite: to that which has neither measure nor number". – Excerpt from “Orders of Thought” by Roland Mönig, Director of the Von der Heydt-Museum in Wuppertal, in the corresponding publication of the exhibition in Arnsberg.

Stephan Balkenhol | Museum Wiesbaden, Wiesbaden

Nov 10, 2023 – Jun 02, 2024

With the human figure as the unquestionable protagonist, Stephan Balkenhol's anthropocentric sculptures resemble the profound influence of canonical European art throughout history up to our times. Under this premise, the Wiesbaden Museum exhibits several works by Balkenhol together with their counterparts from the Museum's Old Masters Collection. Just as the exhibition title announces, "Window in Time: Stephan Balkenhol meets Old Masters" enables a direct exchange between past and present.

Oct 26, 2023 – Feb 22, 2024

"Paraventi: Folding Screens from the 17th to 21st Centuries" explores the history and significance of the folding screen through its cross-cultural influences, the hybridization of different art forms and the collaboration between designers and artists. Within the exhibition, Goshka Macuga's artwork explores how different identities can or cannot coexist: a folding screen constructed of bookshelves and filled with books from six countries, which are each in conflict or tension with one another.
