After her celebrated “Hate War” exhibitions in Turin and Venice, Alexandra Kordas is coming to Madrid with her provocative exhibition. From May 24 to 31, 2024.

About

The exhibition will be on display at Captaloona Art in Madrid's scene district Gaztambide. Alexandra Kordas is thereby setting an example in Madrid against global wars and violent conflicts, in which she believes there are no winners, only losers.

In the works in her exhibition “Hate War - Abstractions Against Disaster”, the Munich-based artist expresses her anger against war and violence and shows their impact on individuals, especially women. With this exhibition, Alexandra Kordas wants to raise awareness of the fatal consequences of war and promote peaceful solutions to global conflicts. Her pictures express her disgust at war, cruelty and sexual assaults on women, which are part of the terrible everyday life in armed conflicts worldwide. With her exhibition, Alexandra Kordas joins the diverse chorus of other artists who have courageously opposed war and violence throughout the ages, inspiring people to spread a message of peace and harmony.

The central part of the “Hate War” exhibition is the series of works entitled “The Six Steps of War”, in which the artist gave free expression to her emotions about the war in Ukraine. With “The Six Steps of War”, the artist takes on a challenging topic and presents it in a unique and thought-provoking way. The title refers to the six stages of conflict first identified by Kurt Lewin. The founder of social psychology, who was a soldier in the First World War, used these stages to scientifically process his war experiences. Kordas has used these phases as a framework to explore the emotions and experiences of those affected by the war, from the initial to the final phase of destruction. The paintings in the exhibition are a mixture of abstract and figurative styles, with each piece telling a unique story.
