Alberto Giacometti / Martin Disler
Kleine und große Dämonen
miteinander gegenüber #7
25 March – 30 July 23
In our seventh confrontation, the sculpture “Petit Monstre II”, 1953, by Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) from the ahlers collection and the painting “Untitled”, 1989, by Martin Disler (1949-1996) from the Kunsthalle’s collection meet. Both artists are concerned with the
the theme of “Man”. The format of one is very small, the other very large. In addition, sound designer Philipp Randt (Kokelsounds Audioproduktion) has interpreted both works aurally for the purpose of juxtaposition and drawn a sonic comparison.
In cooperation with the Ahlers Pro Arte Foundation.
The series “miteinander gegenüber” (facing each other) focuses on a work from the collection of Kunsthalle Bielefeld, which addresses central issues in juxtaposition with a selected external work. The focus is always on a concentrated comparison of the selected works. In the coming year, the Kunsthalle is cooperating with the Herford-based Ahlers Pro Arte Foundation, which is providing the external artworks on loan for all three interventions. The three juxtapositions will feature works by Alberto Giacometti, Christo, Paul McCarthy and Katrin Mayer, among others. The exhibition series is produced in collaboration with the German Research Foundation (DFG) funded Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 1288 “Practices of Comparison. Ordering and Changing the World” at Bielefeld University.
