Exhibition of works produced during artistic residency in Baden-Württemberg and Catalonia (2015-2016)
The Baden-Württemberg/Catalonia scholarship is the result of an initiative by Goethe-Institut Barcelona in collaboration with Hangar, Centre d'Arts Santa Mònica (Santa Mònica Art Centre), Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart and Kunststiftung Stuttgart. The program, which aims to support the development of artwork emerging from the context of each of the participating centres and institutions, foster interregional exchange between artists from Baden-Württemberg and Catalonia and promote dialogue between both artistic communities and their respective collective social classes, is supported by the Ministry of Sciences, Research and Art of Land Baden-Württemberg and the Ministry of Culture of the Government of Catalonia.
The inauguration of Doppelgänger will take place on 5th October 2017, at 7pm at Centre d’Arts Santa Mònica. The word Doppelgänger stems from the German terms "double" and "walker", essentially a lookalike that walks beside us. In addition to the featuring of the participating projects, the artistic exchange program Baden Württemberg i Catalunya will also be presented. The participants’ artwork will be on display until 12th November, and features: Alán Carrasco, Bea Stach, Diego Paonessa, Mario Santamaría, Oskar Klinkhammer, Stephan Köperl, Susanne Kudielka & Kaspar Wimberley, and Sylvia Winkler.
Artist, Luis Guerra Miranda, will present his work in the form of a conference on 24th October at 7pm.
