Dialogue - Trialogue #2 : Künstlerbund Baden-Württemberg at Museum Biedermann

24.11.2013 – 16.02.2014, Museum

In addition to exhibitions of the Biedermann Collection, Museum Biedermann regularly throws open its doors to guests. The cooperation with other cultural institutions and artists is of paramount importance. Having presented the Fellows of the Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg and an exhibition of young Italian artists selected by the Italy-based VAF Foundation in 2012, we are currently showing Dialogue - Trialogue, a series of two linked exhibition of works by members of Künstlerbund Baden-Württemberg (Baden-Württemberg Artists' Association) and their guests.

Headquartered in Stuttgart, the Baden-Württemberg Artists' Association has more than 400 members. It was founded in 1955 by a group of renowned painters, among them Willi Baumeister, Otto Dix, Erich Heckel and Ida Kerkovius. The association seeks to promote artists working in Baden-Württemberg and to present their work in exhibitions throughout the state - even if the artists have long since ceased to be hemmed in by narrow geographical constraints. To this end the Künstlerbund presents an annual exhibition which is hosted by different cities and a wide range of cultural institutions across Baden-Württemberg. Over the course of the last few years the exhibition was shown in Mannheim, Offenburg and Stuttgart.

Museum Biedermann is presenting the first part of the exhibition Dialogue - Trialogue from 30 June to 3 November. It features twenty-one members of the Künstlerbund Baden-Württemberg, each of whom invited a fellow artist with whom they developed a concept for a joint presentation at Museum Biedermann.

For the second exhibition, each pair invited a third artist. The dialogue becomes a ‘trialogue'. However, the Künstlerbund member is no longer represented by a work; instead he or she takes on the role of a curator presenting the works of his or her guests. Experimental and collaborative, Dialogue - Trialogue provides a rare insight into the different ways artists engage with each other's work.

The opening of the second part of the exhibition on 24 November 2013 will be marked by the publication of an illustrated catalogue tracing the trajectory of the two presentations and shedding more light on the artistic affinities they explore.
