Picture time - Jonathan Kraus Jonathan Kraus, to painting, 2020, oil on canvas, 80 x 60 cm

Picture time - Jonathan Kraus

In his lucid work “to painting”, Jonathan Kraus takes up the painting “The Death of Marat” by Jacques-Louis David and subtly criticizes the activism and ideologies of his and our time. The short revolutionary, scientist and doctor Jean-Paul Marat suffered from a skin disease and often sat in the bathtub for relief. Marat's demagogic newspaper "Ami du Peuple" was a mouthpiece for the sans-culottes, called for the execution of "enemies of the people" and triggered the September massacre. On July 13, 1793, he was stabbed to death by activist Charlotte Corday. Jacques-Louis David (1748 - 1825), a French classicist history painter, worked first for the king, then as a revolutionary painter and then for Napoleon. David took an active part in the revolution and voted for the king's execution. David painted his picture “The Death of Marat” immediately after the assassination attempt and dedicated it to the man who was stabbed to death. Jonathan Kraus (* 1989, studied in Dresden with Ralf Kerbach and in Leipzig with Annette Schröter) contrasts David's politicizing dedication with his own version. The lettering “to painting. kraus ”is a statement against political activism and for the essentials - in this case painting. Kraus brings himself into the image of the activist David and positions himself as the observer of the dead activist Marat. His features reflect thoughtfulness and distance. Technically, Kraus' painting can compete with David's and is much more reflective in terms of content.

Excavation - Nguyen Xuan Huy

Excavation - Nguyen Xuan Huy

Nguyen Xuan Huy's current work is entitled "Excavation", "Ausgrabung". The eye is the symbol of perception.
Once buried, we can no longer differentiate between good and bad. Now we try to expose it again ... a Sisyphean work.Ngyuen Xuan Huy came to Germany from Vietnam at the age of 17, studied at the Halle Castle and completed a master's degree at the same art college. Scholarships have taken him to France and the United States. Today he lives in Berlin, inspired by classic European painting from the Renaissance to the Fauves, Nguyen develops image programs with high thematic density and social explosiveness. In the first years after completing his studies, Nguyen was still devoted to Vietnamese topics, but has been setting for about a decade he is critical of the state of Europe. His works are often metaphorical and take up iconic compositions: Géricault's "Le Radeau de la Méduse", Matisse's "La Danse", Goya's "Caprichos" and "Desastres", Michelangelo's ceiling paintings in the Sistine Chapel. Nguyen's paintings are constructive, vital, perfectly staged and virtuously set provocation. They differ in form and content from almost everything we know from current art.
They challenge their viewers emotionally and intellectually.
Next exhibition: Nguyen Xuan Huy, The Mirror, Galerie Rothamel Frankfurt, September 4 to October 17, 2020

Hans-Christian Schink in Kummerow Castle

Hans-Christian Schink in Kummerow Castle

From June 20, 2020 Opening: June 20, 2020 Curator: Daniel Blochwitz This year's Provincia special exhibition combines four positions with photographs by Ingar Krauss, Ute Mahler & Werner Mahler, Hans-Christian Schink and Ulrich Wüst, which deal with life in different ways away from the metropolises dedicate. The Photographic Collection - Kummerow Castle thus also introduces the new format of an annual temporary exhibition.
The Latin term Provincia was used in the administrative terminology of Rome: here the supply of the ancient metropolis was ensured.
And while the late Latin meaning of the word is still used today in large parts of Europe as a "region" or "district" in neutral language, the corresponding German term "province" has a negative connotation here. Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is such for many people an epitome of province - a near-natural and poorly populated federal state with comparatively few and rather small cities.
The youth in particular always seem to be on the go here. At the same time, the area is also a place of longing for stressed city dwellers with promises of freedom for dreams and experiments, as well as space for relaxation and seclusion. The exhibition in Kummerow Castle does not represent the province as a lost or even detached region.
Instead, the unexcited and often poetic images show one neglected, but quiet area full of potential.

Dana Meyer in Fromman's garden A project by the Institute for Art History of the FSU Jena

June 3 to July 12, 2020 | Frommannscher Garten | Fürstengraben 18, 07743 Jena | Mon - Fri: 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. The ninth Frommann's Sculpture Garden shows works by the sculptor Dana Meyer: sculptures of haunting physicality are presented on Frommann's estate. The artist creates her works in the medium of steel. She forms material finds in the forge and joins them together by welding; piece by piece, animal or human figures develop from a steel patchwork. When assembling, the artist is intuitively guided by the material. The gaps between the segments allow insight into and through the objects. The resulting permeability and the impression of fragility contrast with the solid material. opening hours June 3 - July 12 Frommannscher Garten: Fürstengraben 18, 07743 Jena Mon - Fri: 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. (free entry) The FrommannscheSkulpturenGarten is a cooperation project that has been taking place every year in early summer since 2012 between the Chair for Art History at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, the Jena Art Association and the Kunsthof Jena e.V. The exhibition is supported with the kind support of: JenaKultur, SV Sparkassen Versicherung, Sparkasse Jena-Saale-Holzland, Stadtwerke Jena-Pößneck, Thüringer Kulturstiftung.

Creamy Feelings Curdle Ellen Akimoto's (* 1988) painting is figurative, contemporary and captivates with its ingenuity. As Wolfgang Ullrich writes, she “not just quotes stylistic devices from the repertoire of recent painting history”, rather she puts them “into surprising, funny relationships with each other and transforms them into something new in their connection.” So change "monochrome surfaces in the style of suprematism" with a new, factual detailed realism or a "painted landscape painting suddenly turns into an abstract painting" and "merges with the face of a woman".

In mid-May 2020, the Dresden Albertinum opens a comprehensive retrospective on Ernst Barlach's 150th birthday, which is largely based on the inventory of the Ernst Barlach Haus. The anniversary project is an occasion for an East / West exchange: In return, the Albertinum borrows 60 works from its collection of art from the GDR. The presentation includes paintings and sculptures from the post-war period, "Socialist contemporary art" from the 1960s and 70s, and works by a younger generation of artists . There is a wide range of topics, styles and positions to be discovered - from the portrait of a worker to a pop art experiment, from factual to expressive, figurative to abstract, conformist to critical.How diverse and often ambiguous the visual worlds of East German art are in the West Little known even thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. With works by 52 artists, the exhibition aims to contribute to broadening the view of the Eastern Kosmos. Works by Walter Arnold, Rudolf Bergander, Gerhard Bondzin, Hermann Bruse, Wieland Förster, Hubertus Giebe, Sighard Gille, Hermann Glöckner, Eberhard Göschel, Waldemar Grzimek, Harald Hakenbeck, Helmut Heinze, Bernhard Heisig, Bert Heller, Eugen Hoffmann, Petra Kasten, Siegfried Klotz, Rolf Krause, Gerda Lepke, Frank Maasdorf, Wolfgang Mattheuer, Paul Michaelis, Michael Morgner, Rudolf Nehmer, Willi Neubert , Otto Niemeyer-Holstein, Hans Heinrich Palitzsch, Ronald Paris, Uwe Pfeifer, Egon Pukall, Arno Rink, Theodor Rosenhauer, Wilhelm Rudolph, Cornelia Schleime, Wilhelm Schmied, Wieland Schmiedel, Baldur Schönfelder, Annette Schröter, Eva Schulze-Knabe, Jürgen Seidel , Gustav Seitz, Willi Sitte, Hans Steger, Werner Stötzer, Werner Tübke, Max Uhlig, Herbert Volwahsen, Dieter Weidenbach, Jürgen Wenzel, Christoph Wetzel, Willy Wolff and Walter Womacka.
