The scholarship holders Jenny Kropp and Alberta Niemann (FORT) of the Artist in Residence Siegen program will present the results of their year of residency in Siegen publicly for the first time in an exhibition.
For one year, the artists dedicated themselves to the theme of fear and worry and, in collaboration with the University of Siegen and the Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen, built up an “Archive of Worries”. For this purpose, they anonymously collected worries and fears of the population over several weeks. These varied from personal fears such as loneliness, failure, social decline or the loss of loved ones, to fear of war and illness, to late buses or arguments with neighbors. These worries will be artistically narrated on site, spoken by Hassan Akkouch, Sophie Rois, Lars Rudolph, Lilith Stangenberg and Oskar Tonke-Luzoro.
The exhibition opening for “Archive of Worries” will take place on Wednesday, October 25, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. in the City Hall of Siegen (Markt 2, 57072 Siegen). Already at 17.00 a public Artist Talk with the artist duo FORT and guests will take place in the City Hall.
Both events will be held in German.
