Finding new spaces for art: for us that does not only mean finding actual places to show art from a new and approachable perspective. We also want to create new spaces for art by creating a scope of action for individual artists – such as Michael Wesely.
Wesely, who’s works are part of the MoMA collection, is a German photographer who captures the passing of time in his long-term exposure projects of up to two years. This September, in the year of the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus, he shows his latest work „1:100“ with an iconic building at its centre: the German Pavillon by Mies van der Rohe in Barcelona.
To support and finance this art project, we initiated a sort of a kick-starter campaign: In his very own way, Wesely will take 5 Minute-Portraits of visitors. The portraits are unique pieces that are only printed once and signed by the artist. Appointments can be booked in advance and the portraits are created in direct encounter with Wesely, on site in Barcelona.
We are happy to recommend a visit to the exhibition, which could be realized thanks to the portrait bookings as well as the cooperation with Goethe Institut and the Fundacio Mies van der Rohe.
You can visit „1:100“ from September 26th to October 13th 2019 at the Pavelló Mies Van Der Rohe.
