MADE IN GERMANY ZWEI focuses on six main themes conceived to highlight current artistic concerns. The curators of the exhibition place the artistic involvement with (social, virtual, institutional) “Spaces,” “Narrativity,” “Networkings,” with “The past in the present,” with the “Super-sensory,” and with the limitations and stretching of the medium (“Medium as material”) at the center of their inquiry into the current state of artistic creativity in Germany as possible approaches to the exhibition. Many of the works in the show were created specifically for MADE IN GERMANY ZWEI.
The curators of MADE IN GERMANY ZWEI are Susanne Figner, Martin Germann, Antonia Lotz, Kathrin Meyer, Carina Plath, Gabriele Sand, Kristin Schrader, Ute Stuffer, and René Zechlin. The exhibition’s organisers are the directors Ulrich Krempel (Sprengel Museum Hannover), Veit Görner (kestnergesellschaft), and René Zechlin (Kunstverein Hannover).
The exhibition is under the patronage of Federal President Joachim Gauck.
