Mit Jörg Bach (*1964) haben wir einen regionalen Künstler bei uns im 2-Raum zu Gast, der auch international kein Unbekannter ist.

Bach arbeitet mit einem Material das meisterhaften handwerklichen Einsatz und den Gebrauch von Maschinen und Werkzeugen wie Schweißgeräte, Polierer, Hämmer, Zangen und Zwingen erfordert. Seine Arbeiten erschaffen Räumlichkeit, Durch- und Ausblicke. Es geht ihm um die Essenz des Menschen; um seine eigenen Gefühle und Gedanken und die Beziehung zu sich und anderen.

Jakob Leander Bach (*1990), Sohn von Jörg Bach, arbeitet an der Schnittstelle von Kunst, Design und Handwerk. Der Werkstoff Silber hat dabei für ihn eine besondere Faszination. Jakob Leander Bach fertigt hauptsächlich Unikate. Seine Objekte wirken roh und robust. Sie erinnern an Elemente aus der Natur wie Steinformationen oder Eisschollen.

Die Träger:innen seiner Werke werden zu einem Teil des Objekts. Durch das Gewicht des Schmucks verändert sich auch deren Körpergefühl. Im Alltag leben die Objekte mit und sie bekommen eine einzigartige Patina, welche zum individuellen Gestaltungsprozess gehört.

Jörg Bach & Jakob Leander Bach

23.10.2022 – 26.02.2023, in the 2-Raum, Annex

With Jörg Bach (*1964), we have a regional artist who also enjoys international renown as our guest in the 2-Raum.

Bach works with a material that requires consummate craftsmanship and the use of machines and tools such as welding equipment, burnishers, hammers, pliers and clamps.

His sculptures create three-dimensional space and offer intriguing views through and beyond the works. The artist is concerned with the essence of humanity; with his own thoughts and feelings and his relationship with himself and others.

Jakob Leander Bach (*1990), son of Jörg Bach, works at the interface of art, design and craft. He is particularly fascinated by the material qualities of silver.

Jakob Leander Bach mostly creates one-of-a-kind pieces. His objects look raw and robust; they recall natural forms such as rock formations or ice floes.

The unknown wants to be discovered, and perhaps it is the task of the artist to approach what he does not suspect.

Jörg Bach

I want my works to be like natural finds turned into silver.

"Solid craftsmanship is certainly the foundation for the uniqueness of Hubert Rieber's work. Equally fascinating is the rigour of his formal vocabulary. Rieber's works stand in a sculptural tradition that brings together the human figure and geometric abstract form. Thus the figure is not just a matter of content but also of form. Yet regardless of the degree of abstraction, the size and proportion of his works consistently bring to mind the human figure."

Photographic works from Ralf Brunner,
on the occasion of the CHI Fürst Joachim zu Fürstenberg Memorial Tournament

As the Donaueschingen Horse Show reaches one of its high spots when the four-in-hand marathon drives spectacularly through the Brigach, it is no surprise for regular visitors to the show to see a photographer standing in the middle of the water hazard calmly taking photographs, apparently unperturbed by what is going on around him.

It is photographer and photo-journalist Ralf Brunner, who originates from Donauseschingen and now lives in Hamburg. For many years, this has been one of his favourite locations for taking some of his best and most impressive pictures.

A selection of his best works is on show in the Museum Biedermann from 22nd September 2011.

Indian Ink Drawings and wood sculptures from Jo Winter

When you hear the word vegetation, you think of plants and how they grow. In "Vegetations" from the artist Jo Winter, you will also be confronted by different, abstract implementations and forms of plants and plant life: buds, tree sections and complete, stylised trees. It tackles the topics of envelopment and breaking out, it represents sharpness and softness, concealment and exposure.

The artist creates this in wood with a chainsaw and on transparent paper with brush and Indian ink. A small selection from his collection of organic creations appearing as they do to be almost alive, hinting at growth and change, will be on show at the Museum Biedermann Reading Room until February.

Parallel exhibition to the sculpture project "Baden-Württemberg designs"

17.05. – 16.09.2012, in the 2-Raum

Works from Reiner Ecke, Klaus Münch and Paul Schwer

On the occasion of the Homeland Days, hosted jointly this year by Donaueschingen, Hüfingen and Bräunlingen, Reiner Ecke, Klaus Münch and Paul Schwer have been invited to create an artistic record of the Brigach over the course of year, as it flows from the Christuskirche to the Museum Biedermann. The three artists were selected from a group of 12 applicants who submitted their project ideas at the request of the jury.

At the same time as the sculpture project, a small parallel exhibition opened in the Museum Biedermann Reading Room that takes a more in-depth look at the artistic creations of the three artists.

Zeljko Rusic

14.10.2012 – 10.02.2013, in the 2-Raum

Zeljko Rusic - born in Croatia in 1967 and living in Königsfeld in the Black Forest since 1991 - is a sculptor in a very literal sense of the word. Rusic works with a chisel and chainsaw, always fastening his works from a single piece of wood. Every blow, every chop is precisely placed. Man stands at the centre of his work, coarsely hewn from wood, and yet fragile. His figures often stand on stelae, less as triumphal statues, but rather wisp-like, teetering between self-certitude and a yawning precipice.

In his newer works, the sculptures stretch upward like heaven-bound skyscrapers, where just at the top, a tiny human frame appears - sometimes alone, at others, in pairs or in groups. Is this mankind enthroned on his crowning achievements, or the moloch threatening to swallow him whole? The sculptures allow the viewer the freedom to make associations, speaking to him through their sensuality and fusion of abstract and concrete figurative form.
