Information
Mobility changes the world in all aspects. What does mobility mean in the face of unstable environmental, political and social conditions? Month of Art Practice (MAP) invited artists with a diversity of perspectives to explore the topic from a personal to a global level, creating different narratives and nuanced images.

MAP 2023 – The Alternative Mobility is a collaboration between Hochschule für Künste Bremen (HfK) and Heritage Space in Hanoi, Vietnam, and part of the BMBF Collaborative Research Project Bremen Goes Sustainable – BreGoS. At both locations, a group of international artists and curators worked together with local artists and students. The results will be shown in parallel in Bremen and Hanoi.

The four invited artists Sylbee Kim (Berlin/Seoul), Felix Dreesen (Bremen), Kayle Brandon (Bristol) and Quỳnh Lâm (Ho Chi Minh City) are participating in the Bremen exhibition, together with the five HfK students Alexander Schröter, Jamie Yzabel Santos, Jisu Kim, Mohar Kalra and Renen. Further contributions of the Hanoi group come from invited artists Gemini Kim (Seoul) and Hwayong Kim (Seoul), Yuhei Higashikata (Hokkaido), Akosua Viktoria Adu-Sanyah (Zurich), the curators Moon-Seok Yi (Seoul), Burkhard Melzer (Bern), Jieon Lee (Seoul) and the Vietnamese artists Ngô Đình Bảo Châu (Ho Chi Minh City), Hoàng Anh Nguyễn (Danang), Sarah Morag (Ho Chi Minh City), Nguyễn Vũ Hải (Hanoi).

The project is led by Nguyễn Anh Tuấn (Heritage Space Hanoi) and Ingo Vetter (HfK Bremen).

Fountains Failures Futures: The afterlives of public art

A public conference by HDK-Valand Academy of Art and Design at University of Gothenburg on September 28–29, 2023

Research and discussion about public art frequently focuses on conditions of emergence and production for public works. This symposium starts at the other end—thinking about the afterlives of public art with respect to processes of decline, decay, acts of reparation and reimagination, transformation and change. We are interested in questions of sustainability, custodianship, and whether “failed” public artworks can be revitalised and thought anew. What are the implications for their authorship and ownership, and what challenges does this present for commissioners, artists, architects, and urban planners? How can producers, owners and custodians of public artworks, and the communities living with these works, anticipate and accommodate complex afterlives of public art?

We also want to consider the changing terms through which futures are imagined—from progress narratives of the modern to crisis narratives of climate change—and what the implications are for commissioning public artworks and their evolution in the design of public space.

I will reply to keynote speaker Dan Karlholm on Thursday, September 28 at 4:30pm. The entire program and more information can be found on the Homepage.

Multi-perspective remembering – current monument concepts in Bremen

A discussion event as part of the Changing City Festival on 50 years of art in public space in Bremen. Monuments have clearly defined themes and societal tasks and thus differ from art in public space. At the same time, current artistic strategies are used for implementation. What are the consequences of this?

Three current monument projects from Bremen will be presented: Elianna Renner presents the Köfte Kosher memorial pavilion, Ingo Vetter talks about the planned memorial for the abused and murdered children in care and Evin Oettingshausen presents the current status of the “Aryanisation”-memorial.

Sunday 03.09.2023 from 15:00 to 16:30 at Köfte Kosher memorial pavilion

the WHITE DISTANCE

MAP 2021 has a new theme “the WHITE DISTANCE” – an artistic response to the distances created by the pandemic and wants to rethink the existing gaps in the physical and psychological human life. The project started from July 2021 to until mid-September by a series of weekly online discussion with a large group of artists who participated in the project from 2016-2020.

Due to too much work at university, I had to withdraw as an active artist and participated only as guest. It was an intense and very interesting process hosted by the Hanoi based Heritage Space. The results are on display at the Hanoi Union Hall and online at the homepage https://the-white-distance.art

Opening Reception: Saturday November 27, 2021, 6:30 – 9:00PM (GMT+7)
Exhibition: From November 28 – December 12, 2021. Opening hours from 10:00AM – 8PM

Twin City Challenge Haifa-Bremen

For this cultural exchange 14 artists from Haifa and Bremen were invited to form tandem-pairs and develop new art work during a six-month online collaboration. I had the pleasure to work with Sharon Glazberg. We started with agriculture related stories from our family backgrounds and finally approached the fruit and vegetables market at Domshof, asking about borders between conflicts we are getting used to and routines generating conflicts. The artwork we developed together has the title “Border Control” and refers to the new security routine to x-ray vegetable transports between Gaza and Israel supposed to prevent arms smuggling.

take care,

What does it mean to care for something, someone, or ourselves?

Caring can be a form of affection, a survival strategy, a political tool, a mode of labor, and a means of sustenance. It can be driven by moral imperative or necessity. Whether an accumulation of small gestures, a singular bold act, or even strategic indifference, expressions of care—or the lack thereof—shape the world in which we live, a world that is often fraught with competing tensions and complexities.

Drawing generously from the Smart Museum’s collection, Take Care seeks to unpack matters of care from the personal to the collective. The artworks on view range from portrayals of familial relations and societal obligations, to gestures of hospitality and ritual, from strategies of bearing witness and evoking empathy, to explorations of networks of care and the results of their absences. This conversation between over 50 works of art across media considers and reveals the multi-faceted nature of the ways care is conveyed and experienced. And, in doing so, urges the open-ended question of how we care for ourselves and each other in our broader social worlds.

Mitch Cope’s, Annette Weisser’s and my work “Detroit Tree of Heaven Woodshop: Letters from Detroit” was acquired by the Smart Museum in 2010 and is exhibited now in the section “Ecologies of Care”.

Exhibition take care, runs from October 1, 2020 until March 21, 2021

Gruvstadsparken

Gruvstadsparken01After four years of development, presentations and re-designs, the first phase of the park realization is scheduled for August 2015.

Gruvstadsparken is a new park for the mining city Kiruna in the very north of Sweden. The iron ore mine in Kiruna is the most efficient and prosperous one in Europe. A consequence of the extensive excavation are cracks appearing on the surface and as a result, half of the city needs to be relocated within the next 25 years. The buffer zone between the erosion areas of the mine and the city will be in permanent flux, still accessible for people but not anymore suitable for housing or traffic.

For this zone, we – Ingo Vetter, Sofia Sundberg & Karl Tuikkanen – developed a park concept, which is based on the transformation process, re-uses all demolition waste, as well as remaining infrastructure. The concept actively deals with questions of identity, history and memory. In the first phase of realization a former residential area of 3 ha will be dismantled and rebuild as a geometric structure out of gabions filled with bricks and concrete from the demolished houses. The structures will be open to the public until the erosion zone reaches the area. Thereafter, a fence forecloses the park use, but the structures will still be visible for decades. Gradually 64 ha of city space will be transformed in a second phase. Hence, the park will be rather a time-based condition than a fixed space.

The opening of the first part of Gruvstadsparken will be in November 2015.

Symposium Landscape 1 & 2

welzow

Sat, 07. March 2015, 9:00 – 20:00, Place: Treffpunkt Kunsthausplatz / Tagebau Welzow / Studierhaus IBA See Großräschen
Sun, 08. March 2015, 11:00 – 15:00, Place: Kunsthaus Dresden

Until this day, historical landscape painting determines our conception of the landscape, be it in literature, geography, landscape planning, or the more recent environmental sciences. How do artists engage with post-mining landscapes today? The two-day symposium taking place in Welzow—with a joint tour of the active mine—and at Kunsthaus Dresden is dedicated to the relationship between art, (post-)industrial landscape, resources, and democracy.
