Waiting : Between Power and Possibility
HAMBURG  •  Hamburger Kunsthalle  •  17 February - 18 June 2017
 
 

Waiting has been a part of human life for thousands of years. Although it is often considered an annoyance, time spent waiting is much more than simply ‘unused’ or lost time. Waiting provides an opportunity for reflection, creativity, deceleration and mindfulness. It opens up a realm of unimagined possibilities. Waiting can also be a reflection of social standing and status: people in a position of power do not wait; they have others wait. Fast check-in options and private insurance policies can buy such individuals shorter waiting times at airports or doctors’ surgeries; refugees, on the other hand, often have to wait years for a decision to be made on their asylum applications and have no way to speed up the process. With the large-scale exhibition WAITING, the Hamburger Kunsthalle is for the first time exploring this complex and universal theme. In works by more than 23 international contemporary artists, waiting is addressed as a curiously anachronistic phenomenon in our fast-paced modern society, which is driven by a compulsive need for instant gratification.

The participating artists include Vajiko Chachkhiani, David Claerbout, Andrea Diefenbach, Elmgreen & Dragset, Jakob Engel, Ceal Floyer, Paul Graham, Andreas Gursky, Duane Hanson, Jiří Kovanda, Jochen Kuhn, Zwelethu Mthethwa, Bruce Nauman, Roman Ondak, Tobias Rehberger, Michael Sailstorfer, Txema Salvans, Philip Scheffner / Merle Kröger, Ursula Schulz-Dornburg, Aleen Solari, Rayyane Tabet, Jens Ullrich, Tobias Zielony.

Fragments Past and Present: German Colonialism
BONN  •  Deutsches Historisches Museum  •  14 October 2016 - 14 May 2017
 
 
The Deutsches Historisches Museum is dealing for the first time with various aspects of German colonialism in an exhibition with more than 500 objects. Although the German Empire was one of the major European colonial powers, only in recent years has Germany‘s colonial past found its way into public consciousness to a significant degree. The exhibition of the Deutsches Historisches Museum examines the colonial ideology, which was founded in the belief of a European superiority. The multifarious interconnections of power ranged from local alliances and the routine exercise of violence on up to the colonial war in Namibia, which developed into genocide. No less varied were the colonial encounters. African, Oceanian and German players pursued their own aims and worked out their own scope of action. The exhibition sheds light on the motives of the missionaries, officials, military personnel, settlers and merchants on the German side as well as the interests of the colonialized peoples. At the same time it questions the degree to which the perspectives of the colonialized peoples were taken into account in the historical tradition and whether this stands in contradiction to the enormous extent of the collections and archives that were gathered during the colonial period and which tended to support the conditions of power.
