Land in Sight

400 Years of Landscapes
Landscapes have always been an expression of social concepts. They tell in an impressive manner about our desires, dreams and fears. Whoever knows how to read them comes to see the world with new eyes. At the latest with the beginning of the ecological discussion, an untroubled experience of nature is scarcely conceivable any longer. Nature becomes the moral counter-image to our own culture. But deplorable political and economic situations also come into focus. The German artist Anselm Kiefer offers a succinct summary: “There is no landscape that is entirely innocent.”[more...]

ART IN MUSIC

Werke aus der ACT Art Collection
Musik und bildende Kunst können Erfahrungen ganz unerwarteter Zusammenspiele und gegenseitiger Beeinflussung ermöglichen. Siggi Loch hat als Kunstsammler und Jazz-Produzent auf beispielhafte Weise Brücken zwischen Musik und bildender Kunst geschlagen. So hat er zahlreiche Musiker dazu inspiriert, Kompositionen zu Bildern zu schreiben und nicht selten Kunstwerke für seine Sammlung ausgewählt, die einen Dialog mit der Musik eröffnen. Viele internationale Werke seiner Sammlung finden sich auch als Covermotive auf den Jazz-CDs von ACT Music.[more...]

Annika Kahrs

Playing to the Birds
Der Legende nach sprach der Heilige Franz von Assisi zu einem Schwarm Vögel, weil sie für ihn beseelte Wesen waren. Diese Erzählung griff der Komponist Franz Liszt musikalisch in seiner Légende Nr. 1 auf. Für ihre filmische Arbeit bat Annika Kahrs einen Pianisten, Liszts Vertonung an die ursprünglichen Adressaten, die Vögel, zurückzugeben. Die Videoinstallation von Annika Kahrs aus der Sammlung Dominic und Cordula Sohst-Brennenstuhl wird im Rahmen der Langen Nacht der Bremer Museen eröffnet: Samstag, den 30. Mai 2015 um 16 Uhr. Die Künstlerin ist anwesend. [more...]

Lutz Dammbeck. Herakles Konzept (1977-1987)

Film Photo Book Action
In 1984 Lutz Dammbeck (born in 1948 in Leipzig) brought together all his assemblages of newspaper cuttings, archive material and photographs, his films or rather media-collages of painting, dance, film and music, his installations, images, photographs and texts under the title “Herakles Konzept” (“Hercules Concept”). A permanently-evolving total work of art, the Herakles Konzept became the central theme around which Lutz Dammbeck’s work continues to revolve today. It was inspired by three literary texts: Das eigensinnige Kind (“The Obstinate Child“) a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, Herakles 2 oder die Hydra (“Hercules 2 or the Hydra”) (1972) by Heiner Müller and Die Ästhetik des Widerstands (“The Aesthetic of Resistance”) by Peter Weiss. The three parts of the latter novel were published in 1975, 1978 and 1981 in West Germany and it was published as a complete edition in the GDR in 1983.[more...]

Reloaded

Concrete tendencies today
"Reloaded – Konkrete Tendenzen heute“ (Reloaded – Concrete tendencies today) presents contemporary works which demonstrate that Concrete Poetry and its connected positions are experiencing a surprising revival. In the last few years, re-editions of previously out-of-print or unobtainable works have been published, as well as numerous editions and monographs of the veterans of the movement. At the same time, many contemporary authors and artists have been marked by Concrete Poetry and continue to develop it, influenced by contemporary media and by recent artistic tendencies. With works by Erica Baum, Natalie Czech, Cia Rinne and others. In cooperation with the Free University Berlin and the international festival Poetry on the Road.

Poetry goes Photography

“Poetry goes Photography” broadens the acoustic dimension of the literary festival Poetry on the Road. For several years already, Gabriele Witter has been documenting the festival with her camera. Her portraits and photos evoke and revive emotions, capturing the highlights and the small events of the festival. The exhibition aims to make visible the emotional aspect of poetry, going beyond the documentary nature of the photograph. In cooperation with Poetry on the Road and the University of Applied Science Bremen.

Works of Art from the Collections

Double Rotation

Works from the Lafrenz Collection
The Lafrenz Collection has substantially influenced the self-concept and image of the Weserburg, the collector’s museum in the middle of the river Weser, since its inception. As early as the 1970s, the Hamburg-based pharmacist Dr. Klaus Lafrenz had assembled a powerful and unmistakable collection of key positions in Minimal Art, Conceptual Art, Arte Povera, and related art trends from the United States and Europe. What particularly stands out is their questioning of the media and materials as well as of the basic conditions of the artist’s perception of these. Indeed, most of Lafrenz’s paintings, sculptures, and installations do not represent anything in a mimetic sense, do not depict anything that might exist outside of themselves. Instead, they create in a sensorial way unmistakable situations and confrontations that are immediately transferred into the space and ultimately to the viewer as well. [more...]
