Exhibition from February 26, 2023 to June 9, 2023 // Vernissage on February 26, 2023, 06:00 to 09:00 p.m.

Works by Clemens Behr, Yvon Chabrowski, Margret Eicher, Andreas Fasbender, Jürgen Gerhard, Thomas Heidolph, Isabel Kerkermeier, Mischa Leinkauf, Miriam Lenk, Michael H. Rohde, Bodo Rott, Hansjörg Schneider, Julia Ziegler and Rolf Xago Schröder 

The exhibition "Point of view(s) – Blick und Richtung" (Sight and Direction) presents eleven contemporary artistic positions showing diverse views, points of view, perspectives and lines of sight both in aesthetic and sociopolitical terms. The works by the artists Jürgen Gerhard, Thomas Heidolph and Rolf Xago Schröder, on loan from the Beeskow Art Archive (Museum Utopia and Everyday Life – Everyday Culture and Art from the GDR), expand the theme of the exhibition with art works from the recent past.

The exhibition title plays with ambiguities. In addition to the visual allusion, it is also about artistic perspectives that enable participation in an interplay between sensual and mental experiences. The exhibited works examine various thematic fields, explore visual possibilities of representation, or experience a special staging. Installations, sculptures, paintings, works on paper, textile works, as well as video and photographs are presented.

Curated by Katia Hermann and Karin Scheel


Clemens Behr – Multiple viewing angles

In his abstract sculptural works, Clemens Behr processes material from the urban environment such as bulky waste and from the construction industry: old and new building materials, wooden panels, sheet metal, poles, signs, cardboard and much more. As raw materials, freed from their actual function, they are altered, combined and assembled as parts/elements of his installations, sculptures, objects and assemblages.


Yvon Chabrowski – Diverse perspectives and narratives of media images

Yvon Chabrowski deals with visual formulas of contemporary media which she removes from their context. This way, her works convey an awareness of ubiquitous images in the media, which seem equally familiar and foreign. Using methods of artistic research and performative strategies, Chabrowski examines circulating media images in relation to bodies and transforms them into expansive video sculptures that combining photography, installation and performative art, thus allowing different perspectives and narratives.


Margret Eicher – Emphasis on the digital fantasy world

Margret Eicher's large-format media tapestries, which she has been creating for about twenty years, are located at the interface of material artworks and the electronic noise of the digital sphere. Her digital montages are produced as large-format tapestries in a digi-tally operating jacquard weaving mill. The found, public photographic (pre-)image is the starting point of Eicher's visual language.


Andreas Fasbender – Through a child's eyes

The painting of Andreas Fasbender moves openly like jazz. Despite a certain level of structure, he works with the free forces of improvisation. Since 2002, he has been tapping into the specific creative potential of children by playfully creating the so-called Collabs together with them: collaborations using the medium of painting.


Isabel Kerkermeier – A new perspective on transformed objects in space

Isabel Kerkermeier assembles found objects into installations that function like floating drawings in space. As sculptures, they free themselves from the voluminosity and unfold even strongly through the volume of the space, marked and filled through the lines, colours, tension, dynamics and balance in her works.


Mischa Leinkauf – The hidden cityscape

Mischa Leinkauf's cross-media artistic practice consists of performative interventions, video works and photographs. The border areas between public and restricted-access or non-public spaces serve as sites for his artistic scope of action.


Miriam Lenk – Focus on female power

At the centre of Miriam Lenk's work stands a female archetype; tall, loud, and powerful, an icon of vitality and power emerging from nature, she is hungry for life, dynamic and flourishing. Naked and liberated, this figure seems intertwined with Eros while being centred in an environment of fertility like a goddess.


Michael H. Rohde – Unusual views of space

Using photography as his medium and raw material for his compositions, Michael H. Rohde creates artistic images such as photomontages and paintings. He does not con-sider himself a photographer, but a painter, whose images serve to convey a strong sense of seeing and feeling differently.


Bodo Rott – Research on the representation of space and perspective

Bodo Rott has been researching historical perceptions of space and representations of perspective for years, incorporating the resulting inspiration into his canvases, objects and works on paper. He combines techniques of perspective illusion, optical devices and projection machines with a very unique iconography fed by memory.


Hansjörg Schneider – New perspectives on the city, architecture and paper

Paper architecture usually bears a regrettable shortcoming since for any random reason, a building does not get built. It only exists on paper: wastepaper! Referencing the works of Hansjörg Schneider, paper architecture describes the fruitful connection between a built reality and a material that is as flexible as it is fragile, capable of taking on a striking quality through colouring, cutting, tearing or gluing.


Julia Ziegler – Moment of perception

In her work, Julia Ziegler addresses the relationship between visual and spatial experi-ences, and between illusion and material presence, while repeatedly investigating the relationship between form and sign. Her conceptual approach is open to diverse media and techniques such as drawing, painting and temporary works in situ.



Remembering – Paintings by Georg Weise

Exhibition from February 26, 2023 to June 9, 2023 // Vernissage on February 26, 2023, 06:00 to 09:00 p.m.

A solo exhibition of the Berlin painter Georg Weise is on display on the ground floor and in the café of Schloss Biesdorf. The motifs of the paintings, often anchored in the artist's childhood and youth memories, show young men, often still almost children. They stand forlornly in landscapes that refuse to be realistic, that slip away from the viewer and suggest times that have disappeared. Georg Weise's works describe a world of their own between loneliness and loss, longing and unconditional romanticism.
