Wolfgang Tillmans (@wolfgang_tillmans ), considered one of the most important artists in the world, became known as a chronicler of the 1990s. But after the end of that decade, he never stopped trying out and experimenting with diverse photographic practices and thus continuing to capture the present in an unmistakable way. Most recently, for example, he has been increasingly urging viewers to distrust their own prejudices when they look at the world. Since March of last year, he has been producing a series of pictures that deal with the theme of lockdown. Even though Tillmans cannot travel and his personal radius around his home in Berlin is limited, he concentrates on the essentials: snapshots captured during walks in his neighbourhood, or randomly arranged still lifes in his flat or on the balcony. The reappearance in his pictures of "Alex" (Alexandra Bircken), one of Tillmans' closest friends, is also somehow reassuring. He has gone back to what is most important and seemingly incidentally produced pictures that reflect the current world in new ways, again and again.

Filip Markiewicz (@filip__markiewicz ) invites us to immerse ourselves in a universe of signs and images. By means of criticism and a certain political twisting of the "news", his works underline the emptiness of our world of image over-production and current discourses in which news becomes reality and not vice versa. The motif of the poster of the popular Christmas film classic "Home Alone" perfectly reflects the emotional ups and downs that we all felt during the first lockdown. The comparison to Edvard Munch's "The Scream" is not at all misleading, because the fears and insecurities caused by the virus are just as intense as those that the Expressionist artists of the time tried to portray in their paintings for the viewers. Markiewicz pairs this pop portrait with "impossible works of art", as he calls the abstract paintings to the right and left of the “Home Alone” image. These paintings are based on digitally altered motifs that stem from the original image. They are completely distorted and only reminiscent of the ‘original’ through the similar choice of colours. The paintings stand for projects not realised due to Covid-19, which, like the colours that run, have slipped between the artist's fingers.

Through performance, sculpture and video, Constantin Hartenstein (@constantinhartenstein ) explores how individual human existence is integrated into and transformed by its artificial mechanical environment. His works explore the intersection of biological science and medical progress, questioning our voluntary dependencies on technology. His central focus is whether humans still use the machine as a tool or whether the opposite is true. From a q***r perspective, the artist aims to critically question new forms of post-digital normativity. The exhibition shows a sculpture as well as a video work from his performative sculpture "SUSPEND", which was performed for the first time in summer 2020 at the Alte Münze in Berlin. The video illuminates the fragility of protective measures and distance that shape and limit contemporary social interaction. Hartenstein makes the required distance (1.5 metres minimum) visible in concrete hybrid sculptures that place the performers in a fragile state between carefree proximity and insurmountable distance. This longing for a return to normality - which is so sorely missed - becomes visible.

Finja Sander's (@finjasander ) performances can be described as offensive and evocative. The film documentation of "Performance 20" is an example of the work of this uncompromising artist who is always daring and demands a great deal of herself. In March 2020, Shortly after massive contact restrictions were imposed, Sander decided to resume a performative confrontation with a 120-metre-long rope that she had kept in her studio for several months. She dragged the rope for an hour and a half through the Grunewald in Berlin, confronting the public with her body without being asked. In a moment of social isolation and the resulting voids, the artist decided to offer something that came from an inner urge. The viewers become aware of the rope’s weight and the scope of this feat of strength, in which giving up is unthinkable. This is especially true in her hopeless attempt to untangle the rope. Sisyphus sends his regards! Her performance is a continuous back-and-forth and at the same time, a strong statement for art and its power.

Through (wall) painting, sculpture and textile works, Grit Richter's (@true___grit ) multidisciplinary practice unites in a system of abstract forms and figurations. The artist explores the substructures of identity and the complex diversity of human nature. Since the pandemic, Grit Richter has been particularly concerned with the theme of motherhood. In the form of fabric-covered, anthropomorphic sculptures, she expresses the most diverse kinds of intense and sometimes contradictory feelings, as well as the challenges related to the strong bond between mother and child. The pale, abstract body of "Fatigue Moms (01)" has disproportionately long and thin limbs and lies on the floor, distorted in its posture. One is reminded of the shape of a seat, as a mother often makes for her child. But instead of relaxation, one thinks mainly of exhaustion and fatigue. The slouching sculpture seems to have hardly any energy left to maintain posture. In doing so, it becomes a projection of all mothers who have had to juggle homeschooling, childcare and gainful employment during this pandemic. 👩‍👧‍👦💪🏻

Zora Star Cahusac Mann’s (@zora_mann )work combines a folkloric and often psychedelic style that is partially influenced by her childhood experiences in Kenya (her parents were born in Uganda and Kenya). This is seen in Mann's repetitive compositions of geometric shapes, bright colours and spatial synchronicities that are often characteristic of dreams. The handmade blanket called "Ubuntu" was also created with hygiene and behavioural rules in mind. The term comes from the Zulu language and means "I am because we are", expressing the belief in a universally shared bond that connects all humanity. The artist approaches the concept of healing and protection through watercolour painting by combining her hybrid cultural background with her interest in natural structures, science fiction and psychology. In the "Guided Watercolour Meditation" course, the artist activates the blanket. A short meditation creates a mindset that increases readiness, concentration and relaxation for watercolour painting and a situation where you are allowed to forget everything else around you for a short time. The „meditation“ is now scheduled to take place during the opening weekend of „Club Quarantina“ in Düsseldorf...🤞🏻

Lena Marie Emrich (@lenamemrich ) examines objects and phenomena (such as the weather) for their aesthetic and social significance. The artist translates scientific, ‘dry’ research data into a poetic formal language. An aeroplane window, for example, becomes the pars pro toto and serves as the starting point for musing on the heavens. The slightly abstracted Plexiglas replicas of aircraft windows (the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350, among others), coated with translucent monochrome colours are modelled on the iridescent colours of the sky. If you step closer, you can see finely carved drawings. They are fingerprints, cheek or forehead marks left on the pane, in other words, traces of human existence. The sky you see from the aeroplane window becomes a place of longing. Looking at the clouds becomes a wistful memory of a nostalgic feeling of freedom and a time of carefree travel before the pandemic. It was just a little bit more than one year (!) ago that one would truly not have thought that this would have been possible! ✈️

In his poetic-philosophical works, Marco Godinho (@marcogodinho24 ) not only reflects on concepts such as time, travel or memory, he also encourages us to perceive what all too often escapes us. With a subtle sensitivity to the expressiveness of the materials he works with, he creates metaphorical works with imagery that responds to our desires and dreams. "Isolation Days (March 16 - May 10, 2020)" consists of 56 handwritten notes that the artist wrote on post-its every day throughout the first lockdown. As mantras, they invite us to reflect on the transience of things, as well as on our human condition in an uncertain moment of worldwide isolation. The post-its, now enlarged into posters, question in a very personal way the relationship to the concept of home, to life, to nature and to language. While 30 notes that were already published on the artist's Instagram page are now hanging in the Grimmuseum, the remaining yet-to-be-published works are distributed in public space around Berlin and thus will receive special attention. It is his attempt to better understand the failed social policies, fears, dependencies and crippling structures in which we live.

For the first time, the latest collaboration between the two artists AICANON (@aicanon )and Karen Paulina Biswell (@karenpaulinabiswell ) is shown in the context of an exhibition. At the beginning of June 2020, after the lockdown in Paris was lifted, both artists rented a slightly dusty hotel on the French Riviera. They literally ‘extended’ the lockdown and their isolation for two intensive experimental photo sessions. The selected motifs from this series called "Hotel Villa Eden" celebrate femininity and womanhood. They are intimate and mysterious. At the same time, they are full of playful lightness. They are in keeping with both artistic works, in which the theme of femininity and various aspects of desire, the forbidden, nature and female sexuality are explored by them again and again. The project also shows the power of photography, with the camera as a tool of power. Here, however, this dynamic is consistently broken by the humorous play of the protagonists, who have briefly created their very own paradise. 🏝
