Nida Art Colony | Lithuania | Artist-in-Residence 2018

Gabi got invited as an artist-in-residence to Nida Art Colony, Lithuania for summer 2018. Since its opening in 2011 the Colony has been hosting about 50 artists, designers, architects, curators and art researchers per year.

'Nida Art Colony is an art and meeting space, surrounded by sand dunes and seas. As a resourceful platform, it runs an Artist-in-Residence Programme, Nida Doctoral School, and initiates art, education and research projects. NAC is a subdivision of Vilnius Academy of Arts and provides space for workshops, intensive courses, exhibitions, seminars, rehearsals, artists’ talks and screenings. NAC is located on the Curonian Spit, a peninsula dividing the Curonian Lagoon and the Baltic Sea. The spit is on the UNESCO World Heritage List as one of the most beautiful and unique cultural landscapes of Europe.' (Text by Nida Art Colony)

Raumstoff | Fritz und Trude Fortmann Stiftung für Baukultur und Materialien | Symposium

Raumstoff – Textiles und Architektur

Textilien gehören zu den ältesten Baustoffen der Menschheit, sie verhüllen, bilden Raum, schützen, trennen, verbinden und schmücken. Heute bieten textile Konstruktionen und Membranen neue architektonische Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten und Funktionalitäten,
als Werkstoffkomponenten eröffnen Textilien vielversprechende Forschungs- und Experimentierfelder zur Entwicklung neuer Bau- elemente und Konstruktionsweisen. Mit ihrem Workshop 2018 „Raumstoff – Textiles und Architektur“ fragt die Fritz und Trude Fortmann-Stiftung für Baukultur und Materialien nach der Bedeutung des Textilen für die Architektur und die Zukunft des Bauens.

Breaking Out of the Surface - The Origami Principle in Art | Exhibition | Marta Herford

Ausbruch aus der Fläche – Das Origami-Prinzip in der Kunst
Breaking out of the surface – The origami principle in art

Feb 24th—Jun 3rd, 2018
Marta Herford
Museum for Art,
Architecture, Design

Our world consists of folding techniques, bends and crushes. Flower buds, wings, the brain and even DNA offer perfect natural folding templates, which people have been using for centuries as creative media for developments in science and technology. Artists also reflect the origami principle. Unlike classical sculptural techniques they work without adding or exposing anything, solely on the basis of the possibilities of deformation to form spatial constructs. With these threedimensional objects they combine order and chaos, planning and chance. In a totally playful way this gives rise to filigree objects, space occupations or conceptual spaces.

Goodall | Radeberger Brache Cologne

Seven invited artists will develop individual artistic concepts for the ‚Radeberger Brache‘, a rural and protected landscape in the south of the City of Cologne, Germany. The works will be materialized through individual artistic investigations to be realized through the medium of printed matter: a diverse spectrum of foldable leaflets that allow a critical artistic examination through text, image and typography. Together they will form an open archive for future (maybe utopian) spatial concepts within the context of an urban, green, rural landscape.

Hybrid Talks XXVII Generative Aesthetics | Hybrid Lab TU Berlin

"Generative aesthetics is often used as a synonym for digitally generated art. The 27th Hybrid Talks will however show that this term is used to describe concepts from widely varying disciplines. We will look at it from the perspective of acoustics, philosophy, art history and computer science. We’ll hear about examples of algorithmically generated literature and sounds, artificial internet browsers and the digital backbone of these developments. Will the boundaries between an act of creation by a computer and that of humans become apparent? And is such a differentiation of any value in the first place?" (Text by Hybrid Lab)

Following speakers will address the topic:

Gestalterische Dialoge | Forschung, Prozess, Ausstellung | Publication

Im Herbst 2017 zur Buchmesse Frankfurt erscheint das Buch zur Ausstellung ‚Gestalterische Dialoge‘ im Wasmuth Verlag Tübingen / Berlin.

Studierende des Fachbereichs Design der Hochschule Düsseldorf, Peter Behrens School of Arts sind mit ausgewählten Teilen der Sammlung des Stadtmuseums aus dem 19., 20. und 21. Jahrhundert in einen gestalterischen Dialog getreten. Die Arbeit vor Ort im unmittelbaren Umfeld der gewählten Sammlungsobjekte war wesentlich für die Auseinandersetzung mit einem konkreten Exponat, einer bestimmten historischen Epoche oder anderen durch die Sammlung verkörperten gesellschaftlichen Phänomenen. Diese gestalterischen Dialoge wurden objekthaft, räumlich, grafisch, filmisch, narrativ, und performativ geführt. Ein wesentlicher Aspekt der entstandenen gestalterischen Werke war es, sie in Beziehung zum räumlichen Kontext des Vorgefundenen im Museum zu setzen, da der den Arbeiten zugrundeliegende dialogische Ansatz auch auf die situativen Bedeutungsebenen Einfluss nimmt. Durch sie entstehen für die Museumsbesucher neuartige und zeitgenössische Sichtweisen auf die ausgewählten Sammlungsgegenstände.

Herausgegeben von Elisabeth Holder, Gabi Schillig, Hochschule Düsseldorf, Peter Behrens School of Arts / Institute for Research in Applied Arts IRAA

Mit Texten von Dr. Susanne Anna, Dr. Christoph Danelzik-Brüggemann, Miriam Hausner, Elisabeth Holder, Bernd Kreuter, Gabi Schillig

PUC Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil | Field Trip + Workshop

A field trip by the HSD Peter Behrens School of Arts, Faculty of Design in cooperation with PUC Rio de Janeiro, Department of Architecture and Urbanism.

Following the Intra Muros Workshop 'Surfaces of Contact' in Düsseldorf in Winter 2016 the PBSA students will travel to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil and visit our partner university PUC Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro. In a two-day workshop they will further develop the design projects started by the mixed teams in Düsseldorf. The works will be shown in a joint exhibition in Rio de Janeiro.

Accompanying the workshop there will be sight visits to various locations inside of Rio: urban spaces, museums, art institutions, galleries and artist studios.

About 'Surfaces of Contact': The principle of 'skin' is a concept not limited to the body but could be applied to tectonic strategies ranging in scale from object, jewelry over fashion to buildings. The program will open up a discourse on the role of the skin in relation to intimacy, identification and public space. The course will speculate about the relation of skin as a surface of contact in connection to the body/object/building/urban space and focus on its performative and mediating potentials in order to generate personal, social and cultural spaces.

A joint field trip by Prof. Gabi Schillig, Prof. Bernhard Franken and Prof. Veronica Natividade (PUC Rio).

World Reformation Exhibition 2017 | Lutherstadt Wittenberg | Opening

Lutherstadt Wittenberg will be celebrating the 500 years anniversary of reformation in summer 2017 with the opening of seven "gates of freedom", comprising of various spatial installations situated in the city´s urban environment. In 2015 students from 21 universities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland from the field of architecture, scenography, design and visual arts were invited to participate in a design competition proposing different artistic concepts.

The conceptual approach that won a 1st prize and was selected for realization is a spatial installation developed by students of the Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences - Peter Behrens School of Art at the Faculty of Design. The installation consists of five mirroring bridges crossing each other, embedded in the landscape, enabling at the same time dialogical encounters between people but also spaces of contemplation.

Between 2016 and 2017 the project´s further realization process was supported by Arne Künstler - imagine structure - office for structural planning and the architectural studio - Architekturwerkstatt Berlin Planungsgesellschaft mbH.

The exhibition will open to the public on May 20, 2017 and last until autumn 2017.
