Opening: On Sunday, March 17, 2024, from 12 p.m Duration of the exhibition until November 3rd, 2024

The exhibition “Light and Shadow” (one of three exhibition sections for the anniversary “Bernhard Hoetger. Between the Worlds”) focuses on Bernhard Hoetger's personality and plastic-artistic development as well as the light and shadow sides of his work. The artist Julia Kiehlmann approaches Hoetger from a contemporary perspective and, with her works created in Worpswede, invites us to use human fragility and fallibility as a bridge to the other person.

“Light and shadow” are the starting point for the visualization of the artist Julia Kiehlmann. During a three-month scholarship at the Artists' Houses in Worpswede, she dealt with the breaks in Bernhard Hoetger's biography, in particular with his turn to National Socialism. They used textiles to create spatial and two-dimensional works that reflect everyday experiences of deprivation and violence, such as the constraints of a rigid work ethic or restrictive gender roles. The artist looks for rituals to deal with discomfort alone and together with others and to give it expression.

“The contradictions of the past cannot be resolved in this way, but they can be examined more closely,” says Julia Kiehlmann – and by this she also means the question of our responsibility today.

The central opening ceremony will take place from 12 p.m. with a discussion by Julia Kiehlmann in the Bötjer'sche Scheune. The sound performance “VIOLINS VIOLENCE SILENCE” with Johanna Achva, Josephine Brinkmann, Alexander Groß and Sylvie Viain starts at 3 p.m. in the Great Art Show.
