As part of the AliseoArtProject, the students of the Art & Design faculty of the Iserlohn campus and the Alanus Hochschule für Kunst und Gesellschaft Alfter will present their works from the project week at a group exhibition in Gengenbach on June 22.
This year's project week was something very special for the students of Campus Iserlohn. Under the heading "VERBORGEN - HIDDEN" they worked on paintings, photographs, installations and sculptures from May 12 to May 18, 2019 in Gengenbach together with the Alanus Hochschule für Kunst und Gesellschaft Alfter. These refer to a "lost place" that has hardly changed since the demise of a large production area.
During the semester, in the seminar of Prof. Katharina Mayer, the students also dealt with the concept of memory work and the question of what it conceals and reveals. Theoretical positions such as the spaces of memory in the work of Aleida Assmann, Ingrid Bacher or Roland Barthes played an equally important role as artistic implementations, for example in Sigrid Sigurdsson's Archive of Memory or in the work of Christian Boltanski, who became known above all for his installations.
What does memory mean? Is memory right or does it not always have a falsifying character? What are important places of memory for us? How can we represent memory? What does a "lost place" mean and what distinguishes it from a non-place? How do memory spaces present themselves? What is hidden in places? And what is it that we can still see?
Find out at the vernissage of the exhibition "VERBORGEN - HIDDEN" on 22 June 2019 in Gengenbach.
The AliseoArtProject was founded in February 2010 by Nina Hellfritz Lange (Managing Partner Aliseo GmbH) looking for an unconventional and non-commercial exhibition setting and offers renowned and young artists the opportunity to produce and stage their works on site.
