2 Days KunstRaum/ArtSpace „Alte Bürger” 2019

Sat., 17.08. from 2 pm - 10  pm • Sun., 18.08. from 2 pm - 6 pm

We present the participants of 2019 in a loose order (will be updated daily):

Lissi Jacobsen (Bremerhaven)




In a variety of ways, a stereometric body is analyzed here by the means of graphics, painting and sculptural design. Imagined and real cuts break up the cubic form and give it new aesthetic accents. 

In the tradition of Constructivist art, the artist reduces colour to black, red and white, thus achieving a convincing identity of form and colour. The investigations of this identity are documented in precisely organized developmental series.


Thus, through the stringent rationality of her work, the artist proves herself to be an uncompromising representative of an art that "does not reproduce the visible, but makes it visible" (Paul Klee).

Anna Adam (Budapest/Ungarn)

„Secret Garden”



What are the consequences of sin? What is the relationship between punishment, conscience and guilt, and what is the relationship between them and sin? Does guilt have different kinds, levels, and ways of absolution? To what extent do social norms have our own fault? Where does the feeling of shame come from? What are the different phases of regret? What types of repentance, salvation, or remission do we know?


In the performance, the dancer is responsible for her deeds, she gives account of what she has done, confesses, confesses and washes herself with the cleansing power of water and flowers. 

 Andrea Türk (Cuxland)

„A mile in my shoes”



Why do we humans actually collect things with passion? Do memories record through objects or written words? And what happens after our death with the once so personal, valuable things? 


Andrea Türk pursues these questions very carefully in her unusual installation, after she bought a notebook at a flea market, in which a lady who has since passed away lovingly describes a shoe collection over decades: From the travel shoes to the wedding shoes to the children's first shoes - step by step, shoe by shoe - a whole life ...


Vladimiro Miszak (Bremerhaven)




Pictures from the years 1968/71 and today are juxtaposed. Images that are influenced by political and social change in Europe.  

Sandra Jakobs (Bremerhaven)


Paper Sculptures & Etchings


In the workshop "edition Schwarzarbeit" (“Edition Illegal Unemployment”)  by Sandra Jakobs etchings are created in the centuries-old technique of gravure printing.


The enforced slowness that the various work processes bring with them, is in today’s world somewhat foreign yet beneficial.

It is the little things that, with a closer look, are found as motifs on the printing plates.


See, find, touch. In this form of centuries-old etching technology, it still stands up against today’s fast pace.


Working, printing, to touch others ...

Markus Maier (Berlin)

"Foreground with background"



The exhibition shows works that use of a wide variety of painting materials and painting surfaces, develop their special aesthetic appeal, fascination and material quality - applied on the front side - on the painting surface, which was originally intended as the back.


The back side becomes the front side – resulting in reversed composition. 

David Zinn (USA, Michigan)

Street Art


David Zinn has been creating original art since 1987 in and around Ann Arbor, Michigan.  For more than twenty years, "meaningless" art has been sneaking into the world.  His professional assignments included theater posters, company logos, cartoons, landfill wall art, environmental superheroes, corporate allegories, and hand-painted dump trucks.  

Thanks to the temptation of a box of chalk on the sidewalk on an unusually sunny day, Mr. Zinn is known around the world for the art he produces under his feet.

David Zinn is sponsort by „Storm und Drang” 

Saskia Rudat & Ivo Schneider (Essen)

The SAXON SWITZERLAND collective and the animals

„Live and let live”



When the polar ice caps melt and the water temperature rises, it is very likely that we in Bremerhaven will soon call the inhabitants of cold regions of our earth our neighbors – so it will be in the „Alte Bürger”. 


Watch how seals and penguins master their everyday lives in an apartment - not so easy with fins ....

Josiane Ginter (Luxemburg)

Interactive art print


What would the wooden plate on the floor say to me?  - Probably the first question from the KunstRaum / ArtSpace visitors when they encounter Josiane Ginter's art.  


Running over the wooden board, dancing, walking or even jumping on it is not only allowed, but explicitly desired.  Hence a mysterious art print is created.  


Step by step creating collective works of art.

Sven Willms (Bremerhaven)




Graffiti - still a form of art that is often frowned upon. Who are these

Artists who create these out of the ordinary works of art in public spaces?

Mostly unknown - that is why, out of reflex, many hide themselves when being photographed. 

Elke Bodin (Münster)

"Diversity of a square"



The square - probably the simplest geometric form, which Elke and her two artist colleagues Andrea Tenié and Sigrid Kantner, have discovered its spectacular variety. The trio knows how to use different aesthetic techniques to create a total work of art that consists of many individual squares.


In addition, visitors have the opportunity to actively participate in creating a joint work of art.

Miriam Flick (Berlin)




„Introjection” is a pantomime and physical theater performance and tells the story of a woman who realizes that her own life, her daily actions and movements follow certain rules.  


She was never conscious of these rules and would never have accepted them. When she finds herself in a state between dream and reality, she gets the opportunity to redefine her life and her rules.

Tanja Hehn (Bremen)

"Hope is the first step ..."

Linol print


Being annoyed by other people, their actions, their way of thinking, their ignorance and their incessant influence on your own damn life - expressed through thick, red block letters on a white wall.  


Read, be shocked, then smiling and say:
Yes, I know what she means ...

Anke von Januszkiewicz (Bremerhaven)




Without having benefited from a professional education, Anka von Januskiewicz explores different aspects of painting and shows through her talent that the joy of success can also be achieved through exhibitions and the recognition of Bremerhaven artists.
