International Topsellers, ongoing

INTERNATIONAL TOPSELLERS is a collective exhibition format conceived by Lucie Freynhagen, Paul Barsch and Svenja Wichmann which considers itself simultanously as a performative Event and an extensive Installation. The Exhibition Format works at the Intersection of contemporary Art, Fashion, Theory, Consumer Culture and Performance. So far there have been five Editions, each one with a specific focus, concept and title referring to the context of the City the Edition was taking place in. Each Edition included up to 40 works of german and international artists.

Dresden Project, ongoing

The Dresden Project is an ongoing project that aims to explore and establish interrelationships between several places named Dresden in the United States and the City of Dresden in Saxony, Germany from an artistic point of view. A Journey to the towns and villages named Dresden in the US was the heart of the project and included

Dresden, Maine
Dresden, Washington County, NY
Dresden, Yates County, NY
Dresden, Ohio
Dresden, Tennessee
Dresden, Kansas

I am interested in the differences and similarities of culture, history and everyday life in the several places named Dresden. The project is supported with a stipend for postgraduate studies by the state of saxony, Germany.

Dresden Public Art View, 2014
in Zusammenarbeit mit / in cooperation with Lucie Freynhagen

DRESDEN PUBLIC ART VIEW seeks to position artistic approaches outside of existing Art-Institutions in public every day life. 50 artworks of local and international artists were shown on 50 Billboards in Dresden, Germany from 29.7. -7.8.2014.

The perception of art is often influenced by institutional locations, rituals or events which create an aura that makes it hard to encounter art impartially and open minded. In the spirit of Klaus Staecks „Die Kunst findet nicht im Saale statt“ (art does not take place in the hall) DRESDEN PUBLIC ART VIEW seeks to understand public space as a complex site for art that is accessible for everyone.
