Other Things We Like
In the exhibition Panic Room Munich the artist duo M+M looks into current upheavals and catastrophes, pandemic, war and terror.
The core of the exhibition is the Panic Room Munich. In this expansive installation, M+M develop a pointed contemporary inventory of social conflicts and global political events.
The newspaper Putin 04, developed in cooperation with the Munich based graphic designer Felix Kempf, deals with the speech of the Russian president at the Munich Security Conference 2007 and serves as wallpaper for walls and floor of the installation. Further, photographies of the series in front are arranged on the walls. They dissect significant news broadcasts in the fanning-out of all their video stills – also current ones about the war against the Ukraine, thus creating a relational system of references that also reflects the omnipresence and manipulative visual language of the media.
In a further installation, the presence of virus proof materials throughout the covid-19 pandemic is being examined and the fine line between euphoria and catastrophe is being explored in a VR-project.
M+M stands for the artistic cooperation of Marc Weis and Martin De Mattia. Ever since the mid 1990s the duo works at the intersection of visual arts and motion picture.
post-un is a group exhibition project, an essay on the (im)possibilities of communication through painting and the relevance of any content. (Texts on textures).
7 positions, perhaps not only connected by their opinionated approach to art history.

On 9/10 September, lectures by experts from various disciplines will provide background information and new insights into the role of art for the interested public and at the same time initiate an academic exchange.
Corinna Thierolf, Daniela Stöppel and Maurin Dietrich will be among the speakers.
Workshop: METAMORPHIC ANIMALS by Maria Noujaim
In this workshop we will explore, through dance and movement, the structure of metamorphic animals, hybrid and mythological beings in the body. Our aim is to research the possibilities of bodies in a multispecies perspective and landscape, where the human is just one more form in the larger web of forms of life. The workshop is divided into body preparation and free research accompanied by the artist.
The workshop is aimed at all those interested in creating forms of themselves in contact with the themes of myth and nature. There is no need to have a background in dance. Each body has its own dance.
Maria Noujaim is an artist, graduated in Dance from Escola Angel Vianna (RJ) and holds a PhD in Art History from PUC-Rio. Her work consists of a practical and conceptual meditation on dance, working in the hybrid areas of performance, notation and experimental pedagogy.
In 2022 she will present her solo show 'Lake' at Schwabinggrad - Munich. Curated by Giampaolo Bianconi and supported by the City of Munich Department of Arts and Culture, Salta and Schwabinggrad.
