Come by and see our recent group show Reise ans Mittelmeer / Journey to the Mediterranean Sea with works by Daniel Buren, Balthasar Burkhard and Jason Martin!
The works of the three artists, working in different media, take viewers on an associative journey to the sea.
Since Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s stays in Italy between September 1786 and May 1788 and his travel diaries, written between 1813 and 1817, or Johann Gottfried Seume’s travels through (Southern) Europe at the beginning of the 19th century and their media treatment in the form of his popular books, the transfiguration of the Mediterranean region north of the Alps has begun. The works in the exhibition create an echo chamber of this European dream, of the often utopian transfigured place of the Mediterranean.
The exhibition invites the viewer to trace the subtle references to this place of longing in the works of the participating artists - although it should remain open whether these are intentional or occur through the interpretation of the viewer.
