The exhibition program of the KUNSTHAUS NRW KORNELIMÜNSTER offers an insight into North Rhine-Westphalia’s current and future art scene. Since 1948, North Rhine-Westphalia has been purchasing works by young artists to support them. Today, the collection numbers 4000 works, documenting the history of North Rhine-Westphalia’s art to the immediate present day. The collection is hosted in the baroque palace building of the old Abbey of Kornelimünster.
Along the themes of settings, experiments and errors, the new collection’s presentation gives an overview of 21st century motifs with acquisitions from the last ten years.
With Nina Brauhauser, Lars Breuer, Eli Cortinas Hidalgo, Thea Djordjadze, Luka Fineisen, Andreas Fischer, Django Hernandez, Erika Hock, Markus Karstieß, Seb Koberstädt, Anna K. E., Agata Madejska, Martin Pfeifle, Franziska Windisch and others.
REFLECTING showcases a compilation of Media Art from NRW: Time-based works reflect this vital genre of 21st century art. The large-scaled exhibition, curated by Elke Kania and Marcel Schumacher, brings together Video Sculpture, Film, side-specific Video Installation and analogue Double Dia Projection by Marianna Christofides, Catherina Cramer, Dan Dryer, exc, Fabian Heitzhausen, Elmar Hermann, Tim Gorinski und Miriam Gossing & Lina Sieckmann.
"Together we are strong". The saying is as hackneyed, as it is true - and nowadays it is circulating under the heading "Empowerment". To assert themselves, artists often organize themselves into collectives, producer rooms or off-spaces. The goals of these self-organized groups go from the mere visualization of their actors to the formation of a (cultural) political lobby. Guests from the fields of design, art, journalism and graphic design talk about "their" form of self-organization and how they can thereby ensure their professional autonomy. More info here.
In addition to a curator's tour through the media exhibition REFLECTING with Elke Kania at 15:00, a film screening and a book release will take place on Saturday, 27.01.2018 at the Kunsthaus NRW in Kornelimünster.
