Alicia Viebrock I Tranquility Kink29 Mar - 5 May 2023 The solo exhibition Tranquility Kink presents ten abstract, ink and acrylic paintings by the artist Alicia Viebrock. The new series of works, made especially for the exhibition, was created in a concerted working period in which both physical and emotional aloneness were prominent accompaniments. Dealing with the theme of spatial and mental solitude played a significant role in the process of producing the works. This is reflected, among other things, in the exhibition title, which refers to the preference (Kink) for loneliness - which can equally signify an experience of silence or peace of mind (Tranquility).

Marc Henry I Tender Offer29 Mar - 5 May 2023 Marc Henry’s work distinguishes itself through a characteristically figurative style, drawing on elements of realism and estranging them through presented subject matters and painterly execution.
Through his ominous yet playful visual language the artist explores societal shifts and transformations in relation to technological advances as well as digital image boards and their translatability into the medium of oil painting.
The concept of reality and its prerogative of interpretation in the context of our post-factual age along side digital image manipulation are of great interest for the artist.
His work has been shown at Kölner Liste, MMIII Kunstverein Mönchengladbach, Schloßmuseum Murnau, Kunsthalle Oktogon and Palais Rasumofsky amongst others.
Davide Bernardis I MateriaCurated by Carmen Lael Hines 29 Mar - 5 May 2023 Materia is an audio-visual installation which seeks to excavate entangled and expanded vocabularies for redefining how art and science can collaboratively re-approach the most urgent planetary challenges of our time.The viewer is led through a series of uncanny landscapes distributed across three visual-sound layers. These ‘worlds’ enmesh to form an evolving study of the layered past, present and future of Intelligence as an ontological lens. Created by artist Davide Bernardis (Berlin) and commissioned by Blaise Aguera y Arcas in collaboration with a team of international independent designers and scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (Dresden), and Human Technopole (Milano), Materia (Latin Noun: materia; English: substance, material) considers how we can re-imagine relations between consciousness, technology and the natural world.
