Scholars of the Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg at Museum Biedermann
The new exhibition at Museum Biedermann invites visitors to discover a broad spectrum of contemporary young art. Sixteen scholars of the Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg (Baden-Württemberg Art Foundation) present work ranging from photography, collage, painting and drawing to sculpture and installation. Every year the Stuttgart-based Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg awards a number of scholarships in the disciplines of music, literature and fine art. A panel of experts selects the young artists who either live or have been born in Baden-Württemberg.
Museum Biedermann is opening its rooms to the awardees of 2010 and 2011 and provides them with an opportunity to exhibit together. For the first time since its inauguration in the autumn of 2009 the museum presents an exhibition that does not spring from the collection put together by Margit and Lutz Biedermann but from the collectors' desire for close cooperation with the young talents of the region. Bernd Milla, managing director of the Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg states, ‘We are absolutely delighted to be able to exhibit in this wonderful space; the strength of art sponsorship in Baden-Württemberg rests on the cooperation between private and public patrons'.
Running from 18 March to 24 June 2012 at Museum Biedermann, excellent! presents works by sixteen young artists: Björn Braun, Jens Braun, Johannes Esper, Marcel Frey, Manuel Gnam, Andreas Lorenschat, Mirko Martin, Christl Mudrak, Gabriela Oberkofler, Patrick Fabian Panetta, Hannes Schmidt, Hanna Schwarz, Katrin Ströbel, Alex Tennigkeit, Michaela Tröscher, Pablo Wendel. This group exhibition was put together and organised by the Berlin curator, Carina Herring.
