Many young key-figures of the contemporary art scene in Bavaria are based in Nuremberg, at the huge Auf AEG areal. As I have already revealed in the former post about the current Werkschau of the Auf AEG-Artists, I have been invited to curated their annual exhibition this year. With a focus on the enormous building and the history of the former AEG washing-machine production, the 67 artists have mostly created site-specific work that incorporates the traces of the old factory. In that sense, the title 'So Nah, So Fern' (so close, so far) does not only allude to the space's history, but also to very personal aspects of the artists' pasts and their memories.
While I am obviously not going to review an exhibition that I curated myself, I would however like to show you a little selection of installation shots from our show. For more information and pictures of each work you can also visit our website aegwerkschau.wordpress.com, or if you should be based in Bavaria, take a trip to Nuremberg until the 12th of October to see the exhibition yourself. There are several other exhibitions taking place at the same time at the Auf AEG areal, including a great show with Robert Lenkiewicz, a group show about the phenomena of the uncanny and the sublime with works from the Artist Pension Trust and amazing video- and photo works by the two invited artists Cristina Moreno Garcia and Edgar Leciejewski.
