February 26, 2023 – June 9, 2023 // Vernissage February 26, 2023

Point of view(s) – Sight and direction (first floor)

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

 

 

Remembering – Paintings by Georg Weise (ground floor)

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.
