Francois Schwamborn - new at the Künstlerhaus

The human perceptual apparatus is a complex and very effective system that allows us to interact with our environment and create a worldview. However sophisticated this contraption may be, it is not perfect. Every human being has a very personal construct of their environment based on physiological, cultural or individual experience.


In my work, the senses are misled, and at the same time it raises the questions: Can I believe my eyes? To what extent is my view of the world influenced by my point of view, my point of view, my perspective?

"finger flowers"by Ping Qui

Ping Qiu was born in Wuhan PR China in 1961, studied painting at the Fine Art Academy in Hangzhou and went to the HdK nach  Berlin on the recommendation of the Chinese sculptor Shinkichi Tajiri .
Here she initially continued to paint in her traditional Chinese technique, but was overwhelmed by the European culture shock and stated that she could not continue this painting in Germany.
She tried to paint "European" but could not overcome her internalized realism. She finally managed to emancipate herself from traditional Chinese art through the medium of installation. This was completely new to her and here she was finally able to develop new artistic potential.
In particular, the red rubber gloves became her preferred material. She sewed these together and arranged them on bodies of water to create a poetic impression of water lilies, reminiscent of the water lilies painted by Claude Monet.
The finger flowers have become her trademark, but her work is far "... more than delicate flowers".
She has already shown these in New York, on the Grand Canal in Venice, at the Biennale in Havana, in the Mies van der Rohe House in Berlin, in Korea, Worpswede and now in Meinersen.

Sonja Koester

Artificial intelligence is having an increasing influence on various areas of society - including culture and art. But what role does artificial intelligence play in art? Can AI itself create art or is AI more of a tool? In the lecture, Sonja Köster gives insights into the possibilities artificial intelligence can offer for the art world.
