The exhibition Ingrid Godon. I wish (26 February to 15 March 2020) transforms the entire Museum Angewandte Kunst into a vibrant and pulsating, but also quiet and contemplative Open House. The selected illustrations by the internationally renowned artist Ingrid Godon serve as the starting point for this reflection. Together with texts by award-winning poet Toon Tellegen, Godon’s images of the faces of serious children, wistful men and thoughtful women open a space of possibility that not only bears the potential to reflect on one's own wishes, but creates atmospheres for events and processes that encourage discussions around participation and self-determination.
Throughout the entire duration of the exhibition, the sound installation sound 48H silence by d.o.o.r (Oona Kastner and Dirk Raulf), which was conceived specifically for the exhibition, transforms the architecture of the Museum into a body of sound. On the last weekend, it will culminate in a 48-hour live performance with 12 renowned international musicians. After EL BARRIO transformed the park around the museum into a colourful festival during the past two summers, they invite visitors to a wide range of concerts, live sets, selected menus, a pop-up cinema, a screen printing station and a bar landscape within the Museum spaces. The Museum's Create department invites visitors to performances and workshops in the fields of dance, spoken word and self-empowerment.
We cordially invite you to the exhibition opening on Wednesday, 26 February at 7 pm.
