Introduction by Dr. Pamela Kort, Curator
In Gregor Hildebrandt’s performance at the Ludwig Beck department store in Munich, painting becomes a performative act intrinsically associated with the ironic self-staging of the artist. His inspiration came from a 1971 video by French artist Georges Matthieu. Niklas Maak (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) has written that in Hildebrandt’s videotape works and performances “the empiric gesture of abstract expressionism and the mad acceleration of events collide with infinitely endless time to the images stored in the video tapes.” The Munich band PAAR is accompanying Hildebrandt’s new performance. They have released their album on Grzegorski Reccords, the music label of Gregor Hildebrandt and Alicia Kwade.

Panel discussion with Diana Campbell Betancourt, Mareike Dittmer and Tessa Praun
This event focuses on hybrid institutional models that are located on a spectrum between private initiative and public institution or that have transitioned from one to the other. How have the developments and debates in the art world in recent years structurally affected these models? To what extent does the globalized art public play a role within this conversation?

Sound installation by Kalas Liebfried in resonance to Joseph Beuys followed by an artist talk.
Joseph Beuys’s The End of the 20th Century is a key artwork in the permanent collection of the Pinakothek der Moderne. The installation questions – in title, materiality and form – the meaning of nature in relation to society and the individual. Kalas Liebfried’s ambient sound performances fuse the visual perception of space with acoustic experience, creating atmospherically charged environments. Specifically developed for the site of “The End of the 20th Century,” the sound installation Ambient for a Silent Forest embraces the artistic legacy of Joseph Beuys and gives rise to a dynamic field of resonance.
Ambient for a Silent Forest,
Curated by Corinna Thierolf and Tatjana Schäfer.
Panel discussion as part of the KARL & FABER Prize of the Foundation of the Academy of Fine Arts Munich 2019
It is a long way for young artists to achieve museum recognition. But how straightforward is it today? What are the current challenges? Was it easier as an artist in the past? What role, if any, do institutions or galleries play for young artists? And which sponsorships support the young scene the most? The panel attempts to shed light on these questions from as many perspectives as possible, even though it is clear that there can be no universal formula for art.

Lecture-performance with Käthe Kollwitz.
The Guerilla Girls, founded more than thirty years ago in New York, are today among the icons of feminist activism in the international art world. Like Miriam Cahn, they expose sexism, racism and corruption in politics, pop culture and the visual arts in the form of billboards, posters, books and public appearances. They act anonymously, wearing gorilla masks, and use pseudonyms referring to deceased artists. Käthe Kollwitz, one of the founders, will give a lecture-performance at the Haus der Kunst as part of the exhibition Miriam Cahn. I as Human.
“I Am Sun Mu”

Synopsis: Operating under a pseudonym which means “no boundaries,” North Korean defector Sun Mu creates political pop art based on his life, homeland and hope for a united Korea. His hidden identity is nearly compromised when a massive historical exhibit in Beijing is stormed by Chinese and North Korean authorities. (IMDb)

The nighttime tour offers a special experience and a more intense perception of the exhibition At Night in the former air shelter at Haus der Kunst. In 14 stations, the exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the night, that time between dreams and reality. On display are films, videos, installations and photographs from the Sammlung Goetz that reflect different facets of a nighttime foray.
Following the model of Joseph Beuys’s participatory project during documenta 6 in 1977, the museum is about to become a place of open dialogue on our society and democratic values as well as an arena for shared experience. A starting point is the video work On Fear and Education, Disappointment and Justice, Protest and Division in Saxony/Germany by Mario Pfeifer. Artists, designers and architects are invited to engage the audience in a fluid discourse on politics and their understanding of democracy as reflected in artistic thought and practice. The program, which for the first time ever will be codetermined by the museum visitors themselves in a preparatory workshop, will be announced in September at www.pinakothek-der-moderne.de.
Welcome speech followed by drinks
