Oldenburger Kunstverein, Oldenburg

Tropic of Bottrop forms as a reflection on destruction, rampant growth and the emergence of new complexities and orders.

Bottrop's large-format paintings fascinate with a style in which elements of "wild painting" and the development and recognition of structures result in a completely independent formal language. His choice of materials is also stylistically distinctive: charcoal, graphite pencils, metal pigments, rust converters and acrylic in keeping with the colourfulness of the so-called "Rust Belt" of Bottrop.

Peppi Bottrop's solo exhibition at Oldenburger Kunstverein opens Friday, May 3rd from 7:30 pm with a welcoming address by Gertrude Wagenfeld-Pleister (Chairperson of the Kunstverein) and an introduction by Tilman Kriesel.

K21 – Kunstsammlung NRW

Nine contemporary artists respond to upheavals in the urban space. The exhibition takes visitors to Beirut and Dhaka, Los Angeles, Berlin, Brasilia, and Naples. Film installations, videos, photographs, and books explore the themes of loss and destruction, memory and reconstruction. The focus here is on the city as a site of questions about the future, where new possibilities for communal life are constantly being negotiated. The “forthcoming“ becomes a moment of speculation about decay, renewal, and traces of the past in what is only just emerging.

Lecture-Performance at Projektbüro DFI e.V.

The work of Hedda Roman is based on the formulation of artistic questions in the context of the continuously evolving framework conditions of digital image generation processes. In the lecture performance On Generative Art or How to Fall in Love with the Loss Function, which is followed by a discussion, the artist duo invites us to reflect together on the current state of artificial image generation. The first part of the event, moderated by Ania Kołyszko, will shed light on the basics of AI in theory and practice. This will be followed by an open discussion on the opportunities, challenges and problems that AI offers for artistic practice.

The event will be held in German and English. As the number of participants is limited, please register at silvana.alberti@dfi-ev.org.

Andi Fischer opens his first solo exhibition auwee in Hong Kong, presenting new works created specifically for the yee society.

To coincide with the new lunar year, the artist takes on a new mythical creature: the dragon. In contrast to its European relative, which must invariably be defeated or impaled, the dragon has been symbolising good fortune and strength in Southeast Asia since the Han dynasty. As in Chinese mythology, Andi Fischer's dragon is made up of various animals.


The duplicate's eyes gently ignited a kinship with the other side, and a fleeting thought lingered between us:
I could be.

– Oldboy, Quote from video excerpt by Hedda Roman.

On March 2nd, 2024, Hedda Roman's first fashion collaboration debuted at Paris Fashion Week as part of Galvan London's Autumn Winter 2024 presentation.

The collection, titled A fleeting thought, was developed in close exchange between Galvan London's creative director Anna-Christin Haas and the artist duo and is a timely exploration of the human need for constant transformation through self-reflection, and the growing ambivalence regarding what it means to be human in the context of future technologies.

A specially-created video work by Hedda Roman opened the evening in a genre-defying dance performance crafted together with the renowned choreographer Imre van Opstal, to the notes of composer and pianist, Joep Beving.

99 Canal, New York

Curated by Marco Bene, Animal Farm entices the observer on a visual odyssey exalted by pastoral solace, animist minstrelsy and metaphysical riddles – ghosts, ghouls and goblins – offering fleeting glimpses of an alterity existing between techne and poiesis, the human and the non-human, the nocturnal and the diurnal. Through over a dozen new 16 mm film projections we are invited to explore the latest toils in a long-lasting inquiry into analogue means and analogue concepts. A journey towards an eco-friendly estrangement from the extractivist rural landscape.
