“Lick me!”

Artist’s Stamps since the Sixties
Stamps. Those who associate these with boredom and simple postage stamps are way off track: the Weserburg is now showing that stamps can be much more than this, that is to say: art on the tiniest of surfaces. The exhibition Lick me! is entirely devoted to the subject of artist’s stamps since the sixties. The museum has assembled more than three hundred works to present a global ensemble of stamp art. These works include stamps from eastern Europe, the United States, Latin America, and Europe by internationally known artists, such as Robert Watts, György Galantai, Vittore Baroni, George Maciunas, Jenny Holzer, Robert Rehfeld, Anna Banana, and Dieter Roth.

In the River

Artist’s Publications with a View over the Water
The subject stands to reason in the truest sense of the word: situated in the river on the Teerhof holm, the exhibition In the River presents artist’s publication that in very different ways concentrate on water, rivers, the sea. The artistic treatment of this everyday and yet so fascinating element is reflected in artist’s books, graphic prints, films, and sound works.[more...]

Gerhard Rühm

Encounters of the Unique Kind | Edited Works 1959–2006
Be it visual music or auditory poetry, Gerhard Rühm’s work is based on the implementation of an absolutely interdisciplinary concept of the arts. His career as an artist began in the early fifties, when he made a name for himself with his avant-garde, experimental compositions of “one-note music.” As co-founder of the legendary Vienna Group, he extended the focus of his interest from music to literature, visual arts, and the theater.

Joseph W. Huber

DENK-ZETTEL aus'm Osten
Joseph W. Huber was initially interested in producing postcards, in designing works of art that were so small that anyone could have them and carry them away in their pocket. He was not concerned with creating unica, but with small reproduced prints. Because printing postcards in the GDR was reserved only for state-owned publishers, the small number of copies the artist produced could in no way be referred to as such. Each printed card has to be ‘ennobled’ to the rank of small print by way of a signature. In the beginning, Joseph W. Huber signed the card with his full name, and, beginning in 1981/82, with his pseudonym Joseph.[more...]
