Kunstverein Braunschweig exhibits international positions in contemporary art across its two sites–Villa Salve Hospes and Remise. Throughout 2020 we will present seven exhibitions in varied formats, each accompanied by an extensive public programme of artist talks, lectures, performances, and concerts.

The Faculty of Sensing
Thinking With, Through and By Anton Wilhelm Amo
March 28-August 9, 2020

In collaboration with Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, Kunstverein Braunschweig presents The Faculty of SensingThinking With, Through, and by Anton Wilhelm Amo, a project honoring Anton Wilhelm Amo, an outstanding philosopher of the 18th century. Highly topical issues of referentiality, erasure, and canonization are discussed through the lens of Amo’s writings and their reception. As part of this extensive research and exhibition project, 16 international artists and groups were invited to respond to Amo’s (legal) philosophical thought in newly produced works.

With contributions by: Akinbode Akinbiyi, Bernard Akoi-Jackson, andcompany&Co., Anna Dasović, Jean-Ulrick Désert, Theo Eshetu, Adama Delphine Fawundu, Lungiswa Gqunta, Olivier Guesselé-Garai, Patricia Kaersenhout, Kitso Lynn Lelliot, Antje Majewski, Claudia Martínez Garay, Adjani Okpu-Egbe, RESOLVE Collective, and Konrad Wolf.

The exhibition is accompanied by numerous events, including a symposium with renowned scholars and artists on June 19 and 20. The symposium will begin on June 19, the day of our annual summer party in the gardens of the Kunstverein.            

Braunschweig University of Arts Postgraduate Degree Exhibition 
August 15-23, 2020      

Kunstverein Braunschweig presents this year's postgraduate degree exhibition featuring works by eighteen graduates of the Braunschweig University of Arts Meisterschüler_innen programme.

August 15-23, 2020 

Markues’ works create implicitly political spaces in which an egalitarian, diverse, and feminist collectivity can become tangible. Literary texts, queer social history, and art-historical citations are liquefied, blended, and tenderly reworked so that suppressed narratives inherent in the material come to light. Placed together in atmospheric and immersive installations, these works dissolve the bond between spoken word, script, and abstract painting.

Nadia Bellerique, Jeneen Frei Njootli, Kathy Slade
September 12-November 15, 2020

In light of Canada’s appointment as guest of honor at the Frankfurt Book Fair, Kunstverein Braunschweig is dedicating an extensive exhibition to three Canadian women artists in the Villa Salve Hospes in autumn 2020. While Nadia Bellerique applies the logic of photography to sculptural installations in order to compose compilations of objects and sculptures as a kind of 3D photogram, Kathy Slade focuses on books, both as objects created by artists and as literary sources. Jeneen Frei Njootli’s interdisciplinary practice spans performance, sound, and installation and interrogates the histories of materials and objects of her culture of origin with regards to their relation to trade, ceremony, politics, and the body.

Karrabing Film Collective/Rory Pilgrim
December 5, 2020-February 14, 2021 

The dual exhibition by Karrabing Film Collective (based in Australia’s Northern Territories) and Rory Pilgrim combines existing and newly produced works by the artists to create a sprawling and immersive ecosystem of film, accompanied by installations, drawings, posters, and sound works in the space. Evolving around methods and forms of community building and environmental challenges, the artists interrogate current corporate structures and speculate about future models of inclusive cohabitation.  

Gili Tal
December 5, 2020-February 14, 2021

The work of Gili Tal casts a critical gaze on the idealized and uncanny commercial aesthetic of real estate and property development in urban areas amongst public and privatised architectures. For her first institutional solo exhibition in Germany, Tal will develop a new body of work for the Remise space of Kunstverein Braunschweig.

Curatorial Team: Jule Hillgärtner, Director / Nele Kaczmarek, Curator / Raoul Klooker, Assistant Curator
