Lovis Corinth Prize 2022
June 3 - September 11, 2022
With this exhibition the Kunstforum Ostdeutsche Galerie is honoring Paweł Althamer on the occasion of the awarding of the Lovis Corinth Prize 2022. The Polish artist has fascinated an international public with works that expand the traditional concept of art. Both his participatory performances and installations and his sculpture focus on the human being. Social initiatives fundamentally shape his artistic program.
This exhibition at the Kunstforum Ostdeutsche Galerie offers a look at Althamer’s previous projects as well as current works, in which the collaborative aspect of his work is central. The works shown are from, among other places, Polish and German museums as well as private collections.
The highlights of the exhibition include Althamer’s selfportrait MAMA III (2016), the sculpture #blackprotest (2016), and a very recent, very private work. In the form of a dollhouse Althamer assimilates personal subjects by drawing parallels to his biography.
The exhibition project will be accompanied by a catalogue in German and English that includes an interview with Paweł Althamer and a text by a proven connoisseur of his oeuvre: Karol Sienkiewicz of Warsaw.
The exhibition is being organized in cooperation with neugerriemschneider, Berlin.
