Karin Kneffel | Franz Marc Museum, Kochel am See

May 29 – 3 October 3, 2022

Karin Kneffel (*1957), a master student of Gerhard Richter at the Düsseldorf Art Academy, has been working for more than ten years in a series of paintings and watercolors on the Krefeld villas Haus Lange and Haus Esters, which were built by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe at the end of the 1920s. Karin Kneffel traced the path of the paintings and sculptures in Hermann Lange's important art collection to the museums where most of these works can be found today. In addition to over thirty paintings by Karin Kneffel, the exhibition features works of classical modernism, paintings by Kokoschka, Kandinsky, Macke and Kirchner, which are rediscovered in Kneffel's paintings.

Toulu Hassani | Kunsthalle Nürnberg

Jun 4 – Aug 28, 2022

Toulu Hassani's works from the series "Oh Be A Fine Girl Kiss Me" are on view at Kunsthalle Nürnberg as part of the exhibition "Geordnete Verhältnisse". A photograph of the night sky above her studio is the starting point for the six-part series of works "Oh Be A Fine Girl Kiss Me" by Toulu Hassani (*1984 in Ahwaz/Iran). One of the canvases shows the starry sky in its entirety; the other five paintings show sections of the nightly firmament. The artist combines these with abstracted graphic representations of star spectra, which she paints using an airbrush technique.

Florian Süssmayr | Schloss Miltach

May 14 – Aug 1, 2022

Schloss Miltach
Chamer Str. 9
93468 Miltach

In the exhibition at Miltach Castle, the Munich artist presents a cross-section of his work including many new paintings. However, the title of the exhibition „Bilder aus glücklichen Tagen (Pictures from Happy Days)“ is to be seen as an euphemism. The works clearly illuminate the darker sides of human existence. On display are works from earlier series such as “Damen und Herren (Ladies and Gentlemen)”, “Landschaften (Landscapes)”, “Straßen (Streets)” and “Selbstportraits (Self-Portraits)” as well as new works created especially for the exhibition.

Goshka Macuga | MIddelheim Museum, Antwerp

For PUBLIC FIGURE #2 – an annual project by Art in the City (Middelheim Museum) – artist Goshka Macuga (Poland, 1967) rejects the tradition of the “lone hero on his plinth.” Instead, the artist depicts a trans-historic collective of five women whose lives and work shaped and changed society and the arts. The new work pays homage to Chantal Akerman, pioneer cineaste and visual artist; Andrée Blouin, pan-African political activist and member of the first democratically elected government of post-independence Congo; Patricia De Martelaere, philosopher and professor; Marie Popelin, the first woman doctor in Law in Belgium; and Mathilde Schroyens, the first woman mayor of Antwerp.
