WKV Stuttgart
Museum / Stuttgart

The Württembergischer Kunstverein, founded in 1827 and situated in the heart of Stuttgart at Schlossplatz, is one of Germany’s largest art associations boasting nearly 3,000 members, over 1,700 square meters of exhibition and event space, workshops, and a studio house. With a program oriented to both local and global audiences, repeatedly exploring new and unusual forms of presentation, conveyance, and participation, the Kunstverein enjoys renown on a broad international level.

The Kunstverein is conceived as a place for the open, and also controversial, investigation of the manifold methods and practices found in contemporary art, including wide-ranging sociopolitical fields of reference. Of equal importance are exhibition and discourse, art and theory, research and production. Found here is a space of agency that extends beyond the simple viewing of art, a space where art and the relations between art, artists, the institution, and the public are subject to continual renegotiation: through conversations, debates, workshops, or workgroups, but also facilitated by access to books, journals, and other materials and infrastructures. Counting among these infrastructures are, not least, the spatial premises of the Kunstverein itself, which are made available to the public for outside meetings and other means of articulation.

    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis. The same word was chosen by Mara Palena to call a project that unfolds over the duration of existence. The analog images shot by the artist from her childhood to today do not follow any external precept. (more…)
  • Emily Ferguson: It Girl.
    Jun 1 – Jul 13, 2024
    Nicodim Gallery
    Los Angeles, USA
    What’s an It Girl? An image of an seraphic figure, glowing almost too bright to be looked at until the flashbulbs recharge and the cameras become visible. Glamoured, the viewer is still seeing spots and rubbing their eyes as the figure stalks out of view, no-one quite sure if she’s real or not, an apparition disappeared.
