A Matter of Material – What about painting?!

24
25/11 14:00  —  14/01/23 22:00

An exhibition in three acts with:


Ana Kostova – Leonard Gneuß
Lisa Sophie Langhans – Janna Schnoor
Paola Donato Castillo – Zeyang Xu

With Materialsache What about painting?! spce dedicates itself to painting in three acts, in which two artists exhibit in dialogue with each other, as well as addressing the question: What can painting be today? For the entire duration of the exhibition, a transparent, walk-in warehouse with works by all participating artists will emphasise the juxtaposition of different approaches, with the understanding that the technique of painting is multifaceted, multi-layered and cannot necessarily be reduced to paintings.

With its annual programmatic theme Materialsache, spce focuses on the choice of medium and the process of form-finding with the artistic means and techniques chosen. In a series of exhibitions and events, the question of the meaning and choice of source material is explored in terms of artistic and conceptual content.

In the process, the extent to which conceptualisations and media-technical attributions are useful and applicable to contemporary art production is questioned; what quality does a media-specific approach hold? When is it a support, when is it a burden?

How is this reflected in the much-cited current focus on artistic research and the artist as a seismograph of social and political imbalances?
