Kunstreich 2023 – Opening of the JUKUWE exhibition “Im Westen was Neues”

24.02.2024 , 17:00

The youth art workshop is showing works on the cultural summer theme “westwards”. By analysing the culture of Western European countries, the current and new present as well as the associated challenges were addressed. Germany also took centre stage as a country with a self-image of belonging to “the West”. For a long time, its population observed changes in the rest of the world from afar. For some years now, it has itself been in the midst of a social upheaval. As a country, Germany is currently engaged in a variety of dialogues in order to deal with the current situation. Further developments and the future that awaits us remain uncertain. Perhaps this view is somewhat pessimistic, but perhaps crises also offer opportunities to think up new ideas, explore undiscovered paths and imagine alternative futures. The JuKuWe’s summer art camp “Kunstreich” has therefore given itself the title “Something New in the West” and created a place that brings together thoughts and fears as well as hopes and perspectives with the help of different artistic disciplines. And thus depicted “the new” in the West. Works from exhibition design, oil painting, sculpture and performance will be on display.

The opening starts at 5 pm.
