Peter Buggenhout at Kunstenfestival Watou 2021

curated by Benedicte Goesaert, Chantal Pattyn and Peter Verhelst

Poperine, Belgium

03.07.2021 - 05.09.2021


The 40th edition represents movement, harmony, humanity and intensity. ‘Watou 2021’ is as an outstretched hand to experience poetry and visual art with brains, senses and feelings, thus being filled with the multi-layered nature of art. ‘Watou 2021’ starts from within mankind himself. The curators ask themselves the question: What is our role and position in this world?

Thomas Schütte

Hütte (2016-2021)

Kunsthaus Zug, Daheimpark

ab 18. Juni 2021


Der markante und für alle Besucher offene Holzbau, der für fünf Jahre in unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft zum Kunsthaus Zug bleiben wird, passt sich sorgsam in die Anlagen des Daheimparks ein - ein schwebender Pavillon, eine offene Bühne für das Sehen der Umgebung.
Den Daheimpark wählte der Künstler selbst als Standort aus. Humorvoll spielt der Titel mit dem Namen des Künstlers. Das Werk „Hütte“ in Zug ist die erste langfristige Realisation einer Schütte-Architektur in der Schweiz.

Rita McBride

Mirrors and Windows (Group) at Sammlung Philara

18.06.2021 - 03.10.2021


Rather than reproducing further gender-based territories, the exhibition's formal set up is aimed at creating a multi-voiced space of diverse, brilliant artistic approaches and experiences. The works featured at the Philara Collection bear similarities in how they question their own position and draw boundaries to and reflect on power structures at the time of their creation. This includes practices of negotiating gendered role attributions, addressing the interaction of private and public policies, questioning traditional language conventions and prerogatives of interpretation and implementing strategies of appropriation and exertion of influence. Alongside renowned positions of contemporary art, the exhibition highlights works by women as yet remaining unknown to a larger audience, since they were only marginally registered by the system of their time or their recognition was carried over into the present less prominently.

Bernd & Hilla Becher

Photo & Druckgraphik

Kunstarchiv Kaiserswerth

12.06.2021 - 19.12.2021


Photographien von Bernd und Hilla Becher werden Druckwerken aus dem Gebrauchskontext von Präsentationen und Publikationen gegenübergestellt, die die Entwicklung ihres einflussreichen Werkschaffens wie auch die Rezeptionsgeschichte exemplarisch vor Augen führen. Der Blick auf Plakate, Kunstdrucke, Bücher, Broschüren, Zeitschriften, Einladungskarten in Kombination mit analog gefertigten Photographien vermittelt einen lebhaften Eindruck der vielen Auftritte und Lesarten, die die Motivwelt der Bechers zwischen den 1960er- und 2010er-Jahren international durchlaufen hat.

Bruce Nauman

Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam

from 5 June 2021


Throughout his career, Nauman has relentlessly challenged the possibilities of what art may be, and directly confronts viewers with their own physical and mental presence. The exhibition is a non-chronological journey through Nauman’s multifaceted oeuvre, and allows visitors to experience his sculptures, neon works, films, video works, sound recordings, text and works on paper, highlighting themes the artist endlessly revisits.

The exhibition is organised by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Tate Modern, London in collaboration with Pirelli Hangar Bicocca, Milan.

Curated by Leontine Coelewij, Curator Contemporary Art Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Martijn van Nieuwenhuyzen, former Curator Contemporary Art Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Andrea Lissoni, former Senior Curator (International Art), Film, Tate Modern, Nicholas Serota, former Director Tate and Katy Wan, Assistant Curator, Tate Modern.

Active Threads (Group), KAI10 | ARTHENA FOUNDATION, curated by Julia Höner

08.05.2021 - 05.09.2021


The international group exhibition Active Threads at KAI 10 | ARTHENA FOUNDATION inquires into the social and political relevance of textiles today. It explores how textile fabrics still function as extremely effective means of communication, even in our present digital era. The exhibition documents the ways in which fabric and textile techniques can contain political messages, decor can be transformed into radical symbolism, or fabrics can store memories and preserve our material environment. It thus becomes evident in just how many ways textiles can serve as catalysts of societal and cultural processes. In an increasingly virtualised world lacking tactile encounters, the exhibition Active Threads invites us to a diverse sensual experience of the material qualities inherent in art.

Sound and Silence
Der Klang der Stille in der Kunst der Gegenwart


Kunstmuseum Bonn

27.05.2021 - 05.09.2021


Die Ausstellung Sound and Silence widmet sich dem Thema der Stille und des Schweigens im Feld der aktuellen Bildenden Kunst. Die Präsentation wird im Blick auf das Jubiläum des 250. Geburtstags von Ludwig von Beethoven realisiert und nimmt den fortschreitenden Prozess seiner Ertaubung als Ausgangspunkt für die grundsätzliche Frage nach dem Verhältnis von Klang und Stille, der produktiven und zugleich zerstörerischen Kraft des Schweigens und der Unmöglichkeit einer völligen Stille.

Bruce Nauman

Contrapposto Studies

Palazzo Grassi - Punta della Dogana

23.05.2021 - 09.01.2022

The exhibition in Venice is focused on a series of recent video installations that Nauman has developed in the last five years and are related to a single channel video from 1968, “Walk with Contrapposto.” The show includes a comprehensive survey of that series along with a number of earlier performances, installations and videos that provide the overall context for the recent work. From the 1960s to today, Bruce Nauman has constantly experimented with different artistic languages – from photography to performance, sculpture and video – to explore and mine their potentialities in a body of work that relentlessly explores the human condition while interrogating the very definition of what constitutes artistic practice.

Aleana Egan

small field

Künstlerhaus Bremen

08.05.2021 - 18.07.2021


In small field entwirft Aleana Egan ein Setting aus abstrakten Skulpturen, die sich zu vielschichtigen Konstellationen zusammenfügen – Materialien wie Metalle, Holz, Pigmente und Stoffe verweisen auf ihre eigenen Eigenschaften und bleiben dennoch unkonkret: In ihrer Unbestimmtheit lösen die Objekte vielmehr immaterielle Momente aus – Ideen, Gedanken, Gefühle, Stimmungen, Energien und Beziehungen sowohl zueinander als auch zwischenmenschlich, die sich in Formen manifestieren und das Innere nach außen kehren. Latente Anspielungen werden in bildhauerische Gesten übersetzt sichtbar und rücken das Prozesshafte ins Zentrum.

Alice Channer

Liverpool Biennial 2021: The Stomach and The Port (Group), curated by Manuela Moscoso, Liverpool, UK

19 May - 27 June 2021



Alice Channer presents a series of sculptures and pleated fabric prints at The Lewis’s Building. In the assembled works, Channer mimics a geological process that happens on a massively non-human scale using industrial processes that operate on a human scale – a deliberate conflation of scales and kinds of body. Loosely resembling natural rock formations, such as ammonite fossils, Channer’s large-scale sculptures represent the passing and scale of geological time. Bone-shaped structures, created by the application of multiple distortion, stretching and casting techniques, show strata-like ridges on their surfaces.

Peter Buggenhout

nicht geheur

Kunstmuseum Reutlingen

01.05.2021 - 12.09.2021



Peter Buggenhout describes his hybrid sculptures as "abject things" that reject any classification, including those as artistic works: found objects, waste and technical but also organic materials such as pig's blood, cow's stomachs and horsehair are joined and worked on until a certain degree of abstraction is achieved, which still tempts identification but at the same time prevents it. Buggenhout's sensual sculptures therefore appear as essential counterparts that are uneasy and odd. For this major exhibition in Reutlingen, the artist produces a new group of works from the "eternal material" that has been wandering through the ages: marble.
