Final Exhibition // ‘Buttersäure-Senf’ of the 32nd round / 23.09 – 28.09.17

The final show of our most recent residents from Austria, the UK, South Africa, South Korea, the USA, Canada, Brazil, Scotland, and Argentina will present the results of 4 months spent at the residency.

This round of artists has a particular interest in painting, ceramics, installation, found objects and social media, with thematic interests ranging from the narrative of memory, sexual identity & identity politics, to the autonomy and object-hood of a painting. We are also pleased to present the work of our local participants Robin Zöffzig & Matthias Garff, as well as sound performers from Leipzig. We invite everyone to attend the show at the new space of PILOTENKUECHE.

“UNS GEFÄLLT ALLES” // Exhibition in Progress

This week, we focused on preparing our preview exhibition. This round of artists has a particular interest in painting, ceramics, installation, found objects and media arts, with thematic interests ranging from the narrative of digitized memory, sexual  identity & identity politics, to the autonomy and objecthood of a painting.  “Uns gefällt alles” is a preview for the final presentation, taking place in September 2017. This exhibit aims to share the research and production that has continued at the new site of Pilotenkueche. It is our goal to trigger and to develop a dialogue, to propel a participative mandate between enthusiasts & artists.  Tonight we are pleased to feature guest performers from WISP, as well as a collaborative performance between our own artists.

All are invited to attend tonight’s opening event.
