SURREAL MEASURES FOR SURREAL TIMES | NEVIN ALADAĞ, CHRISTIAN HENKEL, ANTON HENNING, ANNE NEUKAMP, SUSAN PHILIPSZ

The exhibition "Cad. Ex. 2020" gets its title from the Cadavre Exquis, a playful method developed in the circle of surrealists around André Breton, which gives chance as an essential creative moment space to free the metaphorical ability of the mind. The goal of this game is to have several people construct a sentence or drawing on a folded sheet of paper without the other players knowing each other's work.

The five exhibition rooms of the Kunsthalle Oktogon are figuratively transformed into a Cadavre Exquis, in which the five participants design their own space. The connecting element of the internationally renowned artists is their current or upcoming teaching position at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts.

  • Ausstellungsdauer: 8. Mai - 28. Juni 2020
  • Öffnungszeiten: Di - So // 11 - 18 Uhr

SURREALE MASSNAHMEN FÜR SURREALE ZEITEN | NEVIN ALADAĞ, CHRISTIAN HENKEL, ANTON HENNING, ANNE NEUKAMP, SUSAN PHILIPS

Die Ausstellung  "Cad. Ex. 2020" bezieht ihren Titel vom Cadavre Exquis, eine im Kreis der Surrealisten um André Breton entwickelte spielerische Methode, die dem Zufall als wesentliches gestalterisches Moment Raum gibt, um der metaphorischen Fähigkeit des Geistes freie Bahn zu schaffen.

Bei diesem Spiel geht es darum, auf einem gefalteten Blatt Papier einen Satz oder eine Zeichnung durch mehrere Personen konstruieren zu lassen, ohne dass die Mitspieler untereinander Kenntnis von den Arbeiten der Anderen haben. Die fünf Ausstellungsräume der Kunsthalle Oktogon werden in übertragenem Sinne zu einem Cadavre Exquis, bei dem die fünf Beteiligten einen eigenen Raum gestalten. Verbindendes Element der international renommierten Künstlerinnen und Künstler ist ihre momentane oder bevorstehende Lehrtätigkeit an der Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden.
