February 16th - March 31th 2019
Opening: Friday, February 15th, 7 pm, Judith Seng - #Alliances
This project is an experiment. It is based on ideas of participatory art and aims to explore the possibilities of a common art production. The artistic works are created by cooperative actions. Not the exhibit but the cooperation of the participants is in focus here.
wetransform brings together a sequence of five workshops of the artists Vanessa Braun, Stine Marie Jacobsen, Stefan Mildenberger, Judith Seng und the collective Laura Brichta/Robert Schittko/Sarah Stendl. They have developed projects that require a willingness to talk, forging alliances and the will to collaborate. The artistic works are designed, produced and presented together.
The Kasseler Kunstverein is constantly changing at run time of wetransform. With each new project the exhibition situation develops further.
In addition to the workshops, the Arte Útil Archive forms a central location in the exhibition space. It was initiated 10 years ago by artist Tania Bruguera to bring together projects around the world that understand art or artistic thinking as tools of social change. Visitors are invited to use the archive and activate it as a place of discussion. The archive is available for events, meetings, debates amongst others.
