At the beginning of 2017 we started to deal with Faust. Our goal was to find out what Goethe’s idea and message was behind the work. Finally, we had to realize that it was exactly as Goethe said: “but it is not an idea that underlies the whole and each scene in particular. It should indeed have been a beautiful thing if I had wanted to put such a rich, colourful and highly diverse life, as I had seen it in the ‘Faust’, on the thin string of a single continuous idea.”
From 24.10 – 28.10 the big autumn exhibition took place in Paris in the Salon d’ Automne. We were there with a two meter version of “alles Vergängliche” from our Faust exhibition “Wir sind ein Teil des Teils”. The rush over the three public days plus the evening of the vernissage was gigantic. We would like to thank the jury and especially Mme Rose Sznajder for choosing us. In addition to the extensive supporting programme, a gala dinner took place in the middle of the exhibition on Saturday evening, organised by the Amis du Salon d’Automne. We are happy about the many interesting conversations we had with fellow artists and gallery owners and hope to be there again next year.
From 1.12.2018 to 13.01.2019 at the Schaezlerpalais and H2 – Zentrum für Gegenwartskunst im GlaspalastFrom 1.12.2018 to 13.01.2019, artists from Swabia show their works for the seventieth time at the Schaezlerpalais and already for the sixth time at the H2 – Zentrum für Gegenwartskunst im Glaspalast. The works of art will be integrated into the existing permanent exhibition. Pictures from the baroque collection have been suspended and replaced by the works of the exhibiting artists. This results in an interesting coexistence of old and new.
