Ulrike Müller: Monument To My Paper Body

Opening: 08.12.23, 7pm at Ludwig Forum Aachen (DE)

For the exhibition project Monument to My Paper Body, New York-based Ulrike Müller has conceived a site-specific mural on the two facing, fourteen-meter-high walls in the Ludwig Forum Aachen. This intervention is accompanied by collages, drawings, enamel paintings, monotypes, and textiles by the artist, which are presented in dialog with selected works from the collections at the Ludwig Forum Aachen.

Veronika Eberhart: Garten sprengen

Opening: 10.12.23, 3pm at IKOB (BE)

In this solo exhibition, Veronika Eberhart presents her film Garten sprengen (Watering the Garden, 2022) together with a new series of sculptural and photographic works based on the biography of the composer Hanns Eisler (1898 – 1962). Coupling an inward gaze with a sprawling investigative outlook is a common strategy employed by Eberhart. An artist and musician born in 1982 in Bad Radkersburg in Austria and based in Vienna, Eberhart studied sociology before finding her path towards the visual arts. Her work unfolds through rigorous research, often interpreting a specific historical reference into complex arrangements encompassing video, sculpture, and installation. While her works are frequently rooted in specific places, their sense of time remains ambiguous.

Dreaming Out Loud: Twan Hermans

12.10.23 ⟶ 18.12.23 at SCHUNCK (NL)

Preserving heritage, including the stories hidden in it, is an increasingly important issue today. There is still a lot of heritage to be found in Limburg, but there are also plenty of heritage sites that are empty, neglected, or whose original character has largely been lost. Architecture provides the tools to preserve and retell these stories, so that they are not lost and future generations know where their history lies.
