“In the exhibition “A room to yourself”, ten artists are showing works that deal with Virginia Woolf’s thoughts on feminism and gender differentiation in the broadest sense. The title refers to Woolf’s 1929 essay, which has been available as a German translation since 1978. The themes it contains, such as autonomy, self-development and creative freedom through various artistic disciplines, are still relevant today. A space, be it physical or metaphorical, functions as a home for the innermost thoughts and dreams. It offers the necessary freedom to unfold the inner monologue, to spin ideas and to connect them with creative impulses. The participating artists are members of GEDOKmünchen, an interdisciplinary association of women artists that has been active nationwide since 1926.”

Deep Paradise in St. Konrad

The apple was and is in many cultures of high symbolic power: Be it as a symbol for eternal youth, eternal life, for love, fertility, paradise and fall of man. In this videoinstallation we circle around a golden apple. We recognize familiar places in the Bärenkeller (a district of Augsburg) in the background and on its reflecting surface. Like foreign bodies, two-dimensional portraits of various people float in it. Who are these people? The holy family? Our neighbors? They never existed, but are outputs of an artificial intelligence. Is this paradise on earth?

“Artificial worlds as a contrast or correction to “real life” are not an invention of the present. Models that take up themes of the everyday in order to place them on a stage or in a fictitious space have existed as long as there have been people. Artists who playfully – that is, according to their own rules and without coercion from outside – express their creativity and develop their individual style. Artificial worlds – according to Friedrich Schiller – that “dream away real ones” have not only existed since the invention of computer games and avatars. “Don’t make such a fuss?” Yes it does: we conquer the stages with pictures, drawings, mixed media, videos, sculptures, installations and performance.”

When: 12.10.2023, 7 – 8.30 p.m.

Old photos that suddenly come to life, faceless dancers, human portraits created by artificial intelligence (AI) and eerie fairy tales … The videos of the Anhauser artist Erika Kassnel-Henneberg surprise and move. On this evening, she presents a selection of her works to the Diedorf audience, tells about the creation and ideas behind them, and thus gives very personal insights into her conceptual work. In 2022, she received the Art Prize of the Augsburg district for her complete works. The artist will be present.
