KUNST AKTUELL is an exhibition of current, contemporary art curated by the Kunstverein Rosenheim. It is presented annually at the Städtische Galerie Rosenheim.
The jury has been Michael Bednarik, Bernhard Paul, Melanie Siegel, Hannes Stellner, Martin Weiand. They selected 72 artistic positions with 100 works for participation. Selection was made from an oversized number of applications from all over Germany this year.
Both regional and national artists are represented in the exhibition - established artistic positions as well as young, qualified new discoveries.
The thematic diversity of the works shown in the media of painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, object and sculpture allows the potential of current art to be experienced by virtue of their artistic quality, and the exhibition proves once again that art stands for the freedom of the spirit and the multiplicity of possibilities - ultimately an expression of democracy.
Through the accompanying program of art mediation, both those interested in art and those "unaccustomed to art" are to be brought closer to works of art in an interdisciplinary way, leading to a self-determined experience of art.
The Kunstverein Rosenheim will award an art prize of 3,000 euros for a particularly outstanding artistic position in the exhibition, donated by the following companies/individuals:
Anita Dr. Helbig GmbH / Schwadke Büroeinrichtungen Planungs- und Einrichtungs-GmbH
