Bonnie Camplin & Paulina Olowska
Wednesday, 23 May, 19 h, Aula

Die Veranstaltung findet in englischer Sprache statt.

Although Camplin and Olowska work in different mediums and come from different cultural backgrounds, they both continually drawn attention to neglected female protagonists in their drawings, paintings, collages, performances, installations and videos. What is less noted, however, is that their attention to the fantasy of the modern woman reworks as many tenets of feminist critique as it upholds. The presentation will focus on individual selected works of each artist.
Paulina Olowska will discuss projects such as Sie musste die Idee eines Hauses als Metapher verwerfen (She had to reject the idea of a house as a metaphor, 2004) were she produced a series of portraits of formidable figures like Virginia Woolf, Vanessa Bell, Charlotte Perriand and Nina Hamnett, and Hello to you too 2006, a show devoted to the figure of a British pop artist Pauline Boty. Bonnie Camplin will present Colonial Fanny and Get me a Mirror- her recent videos.
There will also screen A like Akarova a new collaborative film that will be premiered In Brussels, and discuss there upcoming joint project in Porticus Salty Water and what of Salty Water which opens on Friday, 25 May 2007.


the Architecture Class and Städelschule Fine Arts presents:

SYMPOSIUM:
THE NEW ‘MUSEUM’?
Thursday, 24 May, 17 h, Hall

Alle Veranstaltungen der Architekturklasse finden in englischer Sprache statt.

With the steadily increasing pressure of information flow and capital, the status and role of the contemporary museum within the arts as well as other fields are continuously challenged. In the arts, fairs are emerging as ubiquitous events to inject market interest and social flair. The Guggenheim and the Louvre have become export items. Museums at large are prompted to devise new, specific strategies for the dissemination to and entertainment of visitors via the Internet.
Does the museum as an institution, as it emerged over the last couple of centuries, still hold relevance, or should the arts and other fields look elsewhere to formulate a vital form to present previous periods’ collectibles and tomorrow’s cultural gems? And for this ‘elsewhere,’ is the emerging and ever more popular art fair a good model, its current architectural typology as inspiring as your average sitcom?

These and other questions are what will be addressed in the symposium, The New ‘Museum’?, which the Städelschule hosts in order to address one of the more difficult and interesting set of questions that our culture is facing.

Lecturers are:
Emily King, Frieze Magazine
Ben van Berkel, UNStudio / Städelschule
Nicolas V. Iljine, Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation
HG Merz, architect
Volker Rattemeyer, Director Museum Wiesbaden
Peter Cachola Schmal, Director German Architecture Museum DAM

The Städelschule Architecture Class Lecture Series is supported by the Architekten- und Stadtplanerkammer Hessen.
