PRODUCTION. made in germany three (Kunstverein)
The question of production allows for different perspectives on the topic: On the one hand, it is striking that more artistic groupings, project spaces, and other types of networking—both on site and digitally connected across the globe—are not only experiencing a renaissance, but are also developing new forms. The exhibition will feature numerous different artist collectives. In contrast to the previous Made in Germany exhibitions, artists from older generations will be shown as references who influence current artistic practice. Performative works and time-based performances will also be featured.
The progressive dissolution of boundaries in the visual arts has prompted us—the Kestner Gesellschaft, the Kunstverein Hannover, and the Sprengel Museum—to seek out additional cultural partners in Hanover. For the first time ever, the Staatstheater Hannover, Theaterformen, and the Kunstfestspiele Herrenhausen will participate as satellites in order to augment the question of production and location with additional interdisciplinary projects and to underscore the changing conditions for the production of opera, theater, and performance.
