People who have saved this event:


During the guided tour individual works will be explained in more detail, but above all the curators and artists will tell about the unfamiliar challenges and the risk with which they have been confronted by the exhibition concept.


Within the artistic process works emerge that seem not to fit into the cosmos of an artist‘s practice. In the eyes of the maker, they have not yet been defined as an art work, or were determined as a study. In order to take a view behind the curtain, artists have been invited to propose a work they have never shown before for various reasons. Some of the works were never accepted as finished because they failed, looked overdrawn or simply appeared not good enough. Others, however, seemed too personal or intimate to show. What do unaccomplished and withheld works tell about the personality of the artist, the mechanisms of self versus external judgements, and the definition of artworks in general?
