KERSTIN CMELKA
All Change

Kerstin Cmelka's interest in the format of "microdramas" provides the focus in her exhibition at the Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof. The short dramatic texts of frequently performed plays – considering their distribution – have gained the popularity of a folk play. Arranged in an installation of video projections, the plays physically direct the viewer through the exhibition space.

For this exhibition, shown in the fourth week of the “Rochade” project, the artists Gerrit Frohne-Brinkmann and Philip Pichler will “pull one over” on the Kunstverein, literally.

ADRIAN LOHMÜLLER
And to make you toe the line

For his installation "And To Make You Toe The Line" at the Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof, in the former waiting room for first and second class travellers, Adrian Lohmüller establishes an extensive, artificial space that is both open and refers to its own limits. We are reminded of parks laid out in urban space as consciously constructed and geometrically structured open spaces.

Am Piano: JOHANNES WILDE

"Vortrag/Trag/Nachtrag: Versuch zum erfolgreichen Scheitern" ist die Rede über Kunst und die Frage nach der Sinnhaftigkeit von Professionalität. Innerhalb des Vortrags wird der Vortrag sich auf sich selbst beziehen, abschweifen, zitieren, aufzählen. Er endet im Scheitern, könnte aber immer wieder im Loop von vorn beginnen.

Stunt

A stuntman, Frédéric Dessains, sits on a bench in the Rubens room of the Louvre. Commonly seen in French action films, Dessains was hired by the artist Shahryar Nashat. With keen concentration, he warms up for the physical challenge of turning the conventions of looking at pictures upside down.

Valentine
