Book Launch Burgbergstrasse with Wolfram Hahn

Buchpremiere Burgbergstrasse mit Wolfram Hahn

7 pm

Torbogengebäude im Fliegerhorst
Burgbergstraße 36
74564 Crailsheim

In the work Burgbergstrasse the photoprapher Wolfram Hahn deals with the history of the buildings and inhabitants of Burgbergstrasse in Crailsheim. The road passes through a former air base built for the Wehrmacht in 1936. Since then, the area has been used for various military and civilian purposes: the US Armed Forces built barracks, which served as their base until 1994, and the German Federal Armed Forces set up an equipment depot. Shortly after the war, a camp for displaced persons was set up and there is still refugee accommodation and affordable housing for people in need to this day.


Exhibition Autotomy David Edward Allen

Ausstellung David Edward Allen

Exhibition opening 28. June, 6 – 9 pm

Vexer Verlag Berlin Office
Gneisenaustrasse 54
10961 Berlin

We are opening an exhibition of paintings by David Edward Allen at the Vexer Verlag office in Berlin, which will be on view during the summer months. We look forward to seeing you there!

Were there to be a genre called Nature Painting, it could very well be the one to which David Edward Allen—whose latest series of paintings—would belong. Allen, however, is concerned less with depicting the landscape and more with the relationship between nature and humanity. In covering the landscape with darkness and turning it into something threatening and vital, he reverses the traditional painterly gesture of inhibiting and thus controlling nature. The nature depicted becomes restive. As do his images, which challenge the viewer by oscillating between abstraction and figuration and by way of the diffuse energy they emit. They seek to be both looked at up-close and viewed from afar.

Book Launch with Gabriela Gerber and Lukas Bardill

To a mouse

19 pm

Engadinstrasse 43
7000 Chur

The publication To a Mouse is based on twelve animated films produced by Gabriela Gerber and Lukas Bardill between 2011 and 2022. The motifs emanate from the artist couple’s pre-alpine and rural environment and address the relationship between people and landscape, or people and nature. Consistently depicted in black and white, we see a badger, a farmer scything, numerous mice. The sequence or images create movement: someone shoots a photo, a train derails, a deer runs past a meadow. By transposing them into a new medium, peripheral occurrences move into the focus of perception and can be experienced as such.


Book Launch with Angela Lyn

Buchpremiere mit Angela Lyn

11 am

Villa Arconati FAR
Via Fametta, 1
20021 Castellazzo MI

On the Edge of Time is an immersive, sensual journey into the world of artist Angela Lyn. Born to a Chinese father and an English mother, she grew up between cultures, living in the U.K., U.S. and Taiwan.
Narratives, poetry and images are woven together in the pages of this richly illustrated work, which mirrors Angela Lyn’s major exhibition in 25 rooms of the Villa Arconati-FAR, a baroque palazzo near Milan, Italy. An authentic chronicle linking art and life, the book touches on universal themes that make a deep and lasting impression.



Book premiere

Buchpremiere - Dirk Reimes

7 pm

Reinsburgstr. 93
70197 Stuttgart

sous un ciel partagé entre nuages et éclaircies is the result of a year of research in Brussels and combines autobiography with fiction, everyday experiences with collected contemporary testimonies. In photographs found at flea markets and a text that imagines encounters with some of the people depicted, past and present meet and tell of the fleeting nature of life and our futile attempts to hold on to time. The resulting book and a limited edition of twelve original photographs in handmade frames will be presented.

In the artist talk with Ania Corcilius, Ann-Kathrin Müller, Ivan Zozulya and Dirk Reimes, we also look forward to a lively discussion of the book's themes and aspects from the various perspectives of the individual artistic practices.
