Wir, das Morgen Einblicke in die Gedanken einer Generation.

Neue Sächsische Galerie, Schaumagazin / Eintritt frei

Ein ständiger Balanceakt zwischen Abgabe und Aufnahme von Rollenmustern und den daraus resultierenden Zuständen innerhalb eines Systems sind zum Status Quo unseres Lebens geworden. Hört man sich um, reden viele unserer Generation über den Ausbruch aus der Routine, den ewigen Kreisläufen des Alltags. Aber warum setzten nur so wenige ihre Vorhaben in die Tat um? – so die jungen Kuratoren der Ausstellung.
Ausgestellt werden Arbeiten junger Künstler im Alter von 18 – 30 Jahren, junge Menschen denen es wichtig ist, in ihrer Arbeit aufzugehen, getrieben vom starken Wunsch nach Freiheit und der Suche nach Berufung und Sinn.
Die Ausstellung entstand aus einer Zusammenarbeit der Bundesfreiwilligen der OSTRALE und der Neuen Sächsischen Galerie und wird im Anschluss während der diesjährigen OSTRALE auch in Dresden präsentiert.

Künstler*innen: Anna Naumann, Alexander Roschke, Charlotte Fiedler, Charlotte Krenz, Dimitri Krenz, Jakob Gaumer, Lene Zech, Ludwig Paul Flohe, Sandrina Klein, Sven Bergelt, Wiebke Mertens, Wenzel Stendicke

Last week the European Commission honoured Nathalie Bertrams with the Lorenzo Natali Media Prizes for reporting on development issues. Because of her global reflection of diverse topics, which has been at all times relevantly and in an exciting focus to the OSTRALE selection, Nathalie Bertrams joined OSTRALE in 2010, 2011 and 2013. We are pleased with her about the outstanding prize.

openHUB Second Art Event: “Food/Eat Art”
at the Palazzina Sicentro and the Biblioteca Valvassori Peroni, Milano, Italy

Five European Art Events

The series of art events within the openHUB Europe project is focused around three main themes: 1. “Food/Eat Art”, 2. “Rural vs. Urban” and 3. “Po.rozumienie, Über.einkommen, Under.standing”. The series of events start with a zoom into an existential need of everyday life – food. It explores this cultural medium, which food definitely is, in various artistic ways in order to find out more about its meaning and its importance to the European society nowadays. The approach around this particular topic is transdisciplinary and will contain of practical actions, as cooking and artistic activities as performances, lectures and exhibition. A preview of this art event was first shown in Dresden during OSTRALE’O15 and will be shown now in Milan and be presented there on larger scale.

openHUB Europe is composed of Five Art Events. Every parter organization in Poland, Belgium, Italy and Germany organizes one Art Event during the two-years project. At every Art Event all openHUB Europe activities like exhibitions, artist in residencies, workshops for audience, professional trainings for the partner organizations, pannels discussions and events will take place.
