Kunsthaus Kannen presents its annual exhibition and sale for the 22nd time from October 2019 through January 2020. Since 1996, artworks made within the past year by residential artists in our atelier and by international guest-artists within the realm of Outsider Art are showcased in our large exhibition space and for sale. As part of Kunsthaus Kannen’s mission to seek and support talented, emerging artists from around the world, Kunsthaus Kannen had an open call for submissions, to give these artists the opportunity to exhibit their work and reach a broader public. This year we are proud to present over 250 artworks by 50 different artists, of which 20 external artists come from as far as Australia and Cuba.
The exhibition is prepared by young students and interns, who not only begin to gather practical experience in exhibition planning and development, but also contribute to new and exciting ideas on curation. Visitors can look forward to seeing a vast array of contemporary art, Outsider Art, Art Brut and alternative art forms. You can explore the expressionistic, colorful portraits by Georg Brinkschulte, one of which became the face of the exhibition. A major theme in this year’s exhibition is animals, which can be seen in Wolfgang Brandl’s watercolors and Michael Gude’s prints. Color is celebrated through the artworks by Hermann König, Paul Berger, Alfred Olschewski, Grischan and Sven Redlich. Many drawings display a confident use of line, to include those by Gabriele Winkler and Stefan Reimer. In addition, there are many fascinating sculptures made out of wood, metal, and clay, such as ceramic heads by Nicole Szlachetka and the wire insects by Markus Meurer. It is especially exciting for us to present Mark Steven’s paintings from Australia and experimental work from Art Burt Project Cuba.
Like every year, all the artworks are on sale and directly support the artists. You can learn more about the prices and other purchasable items in the Museum Shop.
