Excerpt of my contribution to the BBK State Art Exhibition 2022 at Dortmunder U, Level 6
BBK NRW State Art Exhibition 2022 in Dortmund
The Bundesverband Bildender Künstlerinnen und Künstler Westfalen, in cooperation with the Museum Ostwall, Dortmund, is the organiser of this year’s BBK Landeskunstausstellung NRW 2022, which will take place from 10 November 2022 to 8 January 2023 in the Dortmunder U, Level 6.
The motto of the BBK State Art Exhibition NRW 2022 is “Klare Kante!”. Expressive artistic positions on social, cultural-political or artistic themes were sought for the exhibition. The exhibition is divided into six sections, which present different artistic perspectives, positions and approaches of the artists to the call for “Klare Kante! The thematic fields are, for example, climate change, war, environmental destruction and gender issues. The artistic disciplines are equally diverse: painting, drawing, photography, print, video, sculpture, installations and others.
1600 artists from NRW who are organised in one of the nine BBK district associations in NRW were called upon to participate in the application for the BBK State Art Exhibition NRW 2022. The selection of the participating artists was the responsibility of a jury composed of the following persons:
- Dr. Natalie Gutgesell, Art Historian, Lichtenfels
- Sepp Hiekisch-Picard, Deputy Director Kunstmuseum Bochum
- Natalie Çalkozan, Curator, Museum Ostwall Dortmund
- Dr. Florence Thurmes, Director, Museum Ostwall Dortmund
- Friederike Graben, Artist, Cologne
The exhibition is sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. A catalogue will also be published.
