The Capella MACBA hosts Lincoln, Lonnie, and Me, a video installation that, staging life-size phantasmagorical figures, examines the formulation of historic narratives and how past tragedies are constantly renegotiated through Weems’ relationship with president Abraham Lincoln and activist Lonnie Graham. A proposal presented in parallel to the exhibition project organized by Fundación Mapfre in collaboration with Foto Colectania, Barcelona, and Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart, where over four decades of Weems’ photographic work will be on show.

With the presentation of this major installation, MACBA joins these leading institutions to revisit Weems’ seminal trajectory.

Congratulations for receiving the Bernd and Hilla Becher Award

The photo artists Carrie Mae Weems and Hannah Darabi are awarded the Bernd and Hilla Becher Prize of the state capital Düsseldorf. The prize is being awarded for the second time this year. The internationally oriented photo art prize consists of a main prize (2022: Carrie Mae Weems) and a promotional prize (2022: Hannah Darabi). The exact date of the award ceremony is yet to be announced.

The Bernd and Hilla Becher Prize

In memory of the internationally renowned Düsseldorf photographer couple Bernd and Hilla Becher, the Photo Art Prize of the state capital Düsseldorf is awarded to personalities who have excelled in photography. Bernd and Hilla Becher (born 20 August 1931, died 22 June 2007/born 2 September 1934, died 10 October 2015) founded Germany's first class for artistic photography at the Düsseldorf Art Academy in 1976 and developed a unique artistic-photographic oeuvre in more than 58 years.

The jury statement reads, among other things: (excerpt) "The jury was convinced by Carrie Mae Weem's long-standing oeuvre, which uses photography, film, performance and installation to negotiate questions about social constructs of race, gender and class while incorporating contemporary music and fashion."

24/09/2022

Peruvian artist TERESA BURGA (1935–2021) is considered one of the pioneers of Pop Art and Conceptual Art in Latin America. Since the 1960s, she has proven to be a detailed protocolist of contemporary social conditions. Her extensive oeuvre includes paintings and environments that can be classified as Pop Art, as well as conceptual drawings and objects, and cybernetic installations. The unifying factor in this medially and formally broad spectrum is the artist's consistent effort to make complex social structures just as visible as the individual's possibility for self-determined action.

New Weserburg Podcast

Artist Teresa Burga

Listen now on Spotify

Barbara Thumm, gallery owner, longtime companion, and administrator of Teresa Burga's estate, in conversation with Weserburg Director Janneke de Vries. In the podcast, she talks about the long artistic path Teresa Burga took from her studies in architecture in the 1950s to her international exhibition successes over six decades later. It is also about the political and cultural situation in Burga's home country of Peru and why her work was long considered "un-Peruvian." Or about her core artistic themes, her never-ending curiosity and her personal situation as a deliberately unmarried and childless woman in a patriarchal society. In addition, walking sticks and the mobility of the hip play a not insignificant role.

The work of the Peruvian artist Teresa Burga (1935–2021) remained under the radar of the international art establishment for decades before the overdue (re)discovery began around 2010 –when Burga was already in her mid-70s. Today, she is world-renowned and has long been considered one of the most important protagonists of Pop Art and Conceptual Art in Latin America. With "Die Seiltänzerin" (The Tightrope Dancer) through November 6, 2022, the Weserburg Museum für Moderne Kunst offers an insight into Burga's oeuvre of drawings from 2012 until her death in 2021, combining it with works on paper and a room-sized installation from the 1960s.

KITCHEN TABLE TALK
Thursday May 5th, 2022
7 pm, WKV Glastrakt

Inspired by the "Kitchen Table Series" that’s part of the exhibition "Carrie Mae Weems. The Evidence Of Things Not Seen" currently on view, Württembergischer Kunstverein is inviting visitors to a new event series: the Kitchen Table Talks. Coming together at a long table with an open bar to discuss with invited guests various themes that emerge from Weems' works. In doing so, aiming to create a space where the exhibition becomes a social occasion for a participatory coming together between different generations.

Representatives of .stuttgart will be present for the discussion how we can use the exhibition of an African-American artist in the Stuttgart context as an occasion to engage with local decolonization and intersectional feminist activism by BPoC in Germany. Related questions about visibility, representation, and safer spaces will be posed and discussed at the kitchen table.

Further dates:
Thursday, June 2nd, 7 pm
Thursday, July 7th, 7 pm

Detail of EL HADJI SY, Silhouettes Critiques show at the gallery.

From the beginning of his career, El Hadji Sy was committed to the development of autonomous infrastructures for artists living in Senegal. He founded studio complexes such as the first Village Des Arts (1977–1983), from which the artists were eventually evicted, and a second in 1996 in a former Chinese workers' camp – today's Village Des Arts. While the controversial exhibition "Primitivism in the 20th Century" opened at MoMA in 1984, El Hadji Sy conceived a collection of contemporary Senegalese art for the Weltkulturen Museum in Frankfurt in the same year - a pioneering work that shortly thereafter resulted in the first anthology of contemporary Senegalese visual art. El Hadji Sy co-edited this anthology, to which Leopold Sedar Senghor wrote the foreword. In his quest to write a non-Western and modern history, he was invited by curator Clementine Délisse to co-curate the exhibition "Seven Stories about Modern Art in Africa" at the Whitechapel Gallery in London during Africa95 in 1995. In 2005, he presented the comprehensive retrospective entitled Painting, Performance, Politics, curated by Clementine Délisse, Yvette Mutumba and Philippe Pirotte at the Weltkulturen Museum Frankfurt, which in 2015 placed his work in dialogue with objects from the museum's ethnographic collection. His work has been shown at the IFAN Museum of African Arts Dakar, the 31st Sao Paolo Biennale (2015), the U-Jazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw (2016) and Documenta 14 (2017).
