On 13 November 2015, a group exhibition with works by Andreas Berlin, Sabine Dehnel, Britta Grimm, Marc Peschke, Jan Schmelcher and Marco Wagner opens at the Atelier Schwab in Wertheim-on-the-Main. The reception starts at 19.30. The exhibition, simply titled OPEN, was conceptualised by Johannes Schwab and Marc Peschke.
Open Source and Open Innovation
Today, unrestricted access to cultures, markets, technology and information is no longer a utopian concept: Independent Publishing, Open Content, Open Source and Open Innovation are buzzwords of our time. In art, 'openness' implies that external influences are integrated into the artwork – the outside world rushes in and becomes part of the creative process. This is the basic principle of modern art, as described in Umberto Eco's 'Opera Aperta' (The Open Work), published in 1962.
Ambiguity and Collage
With the exhibition 'OPEN', the Atelier Schwab presents the work of several artists who consciously avoid clear definitions, and who do so in a wide variety of ways. Terms such as ambiguity, recombination, dialogue, collage and dynamics become relevant aspects of the exhibition – as does the perception of the viewer. The choice of venue juxtaposes the contemporary works of art: the Atelier Schwab is located in the historic estate chambers below Wertheim Castle.
