degree_show – out of KHM
15.02.2020 – 17.05.2020
Céline Berger, András Blazsek, Viktor Brim, Anna Ehrenstein, Kerstin Ergenzinger, Denzel Russell, Søren Siebel presents Bas Grossfeldt
In their works, the artists in degree_show – out of KHM react to social and natural developments of our time. Their work begins with observation, research, personal cultural backgrounds, and the use of a wide variety of media, with a focus on topics including natural and human resources, tradition and its reinterpretation, exploitation, and capitalism.
All the films, pictures, performances, and installations featured in the exhibition deal with the relationship between people and places. They tell stories of workers, prisoners, artists, and different social groups. They deal with the destruction of nature and its influence on human life. The exhibition offers information, questions everyday patterns, and makes room for a longing for the essential: at the end of the space, visitors can let sound and movement, rain and wind carry them away and reflect on what they have seen and heard.
The show brings together time- and media-based works by students and graduates of the Academy of Media Arts Cologne.
The exhibition is curated by Gertrud Peters and Mischa Kuball.
