The touring exhibition Contemporary Contemplations was shown for the first time in March 2018 in Arti et Amicitae in Amsterdam, then in Kunstquartier Bethanien, Berlin, in Kunsthaus Erfurt, in PHK18 Rotterdam (now Murals.Inc.Podium) and Galerie Ursula Walter in Dresden.
The exhibition is about time and repetition. In contrast to the general phenomenon of time where tempo and continuous change are paramount, the emphasis in this exhibition is on moment and feeling of duration. In their work, the participating artists use repetition as a form or form their work through repetition.
In addition to the artists from the very beginning, artists who fit the theme are added during each exhibition.
With thanks to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, CBK Rotterdam and Goethe Institut Rotterdam to make this possible.
