STAND DER DINGE [THE STATE OF THINGS]
Chatbook Posters, Installation
The Bietigheim-Bissingen Municipal Gallery and the Kunstmuseum Singen
20/10/2017 – 07/01/2018
The Artists’ Association of Baden-Württemberg is the guest at two museums as part of this year’s State Project 2017. The Kunstmuseum Singen is in the south of the state, while the Bietigheim-Bissingen Municipal Gallery is in the north-east. The two Museum Directors, Dr. Isabell Schenk-Weininger and Christoph Bauer, will select about 50 artists from the pool of more than 400 association members. An advisory board of non-executive members of the Artists’ Association will assist in this task. The exhibitions are intended to present the current State of Things as an exciting cross-section of the positions represented within the Artists’ Association across the various artistic media of expression, communities and generations. Whereby there will be a special twist to the exhibitions: the two Museum Directors will each exhibit and curate their selections on the premises of their opposite number.
Numerous accompanying events, podium discussions, artist interviews, curated tours, performances, etc. are planned during the exhibition projects. An elaborately designed publication will be issued for the exhibitions. The opening event at the Bietigheim-Bissingen Municipal Gallery will take place on Friday, 20/10/2017, and that of the Kunstmuseum Singen on Sunday, 22/10/2017. Both exhibitions will finish during the first week of January 2018.
