This year we will have four exhibitions in our foyer again:
"Wellenlänge" (wavelength), a work exhibition by students of the Kunstakademie Münster
February 19th - March 2019
As part of a seminar of the Kunst Akademie Münster, art was considered in the social context of psychiatry. The students had the opportunity to get to know a field of practice and to deal with their experiences in contact with psychologically or mentally handicapped artists and their works. The final exhibition in the foyer of the Kunsthaus will give an answer to the question: "Is there a wavelength between art and psychiatry?"
faces from Kerala (South India) drawn by Baby Appachan
April / May 2019
The paintings were created as part of a project by a Münster painter in the Pratheeksha Bhavan, a nursing home in southern India, conducted by sisters and brothers of the Order of St. John of God. For three months, the artist accompanied the people living there, to draw and paint with them - in a protected space, free of therapeutic intent and open to their experiences and experimental skills.
