Giessen. The art exhibition “Kuenstlerische Positionen am IfK seit 1980” at Kultur im Zentrum (KiZ) shows an art collection from Anne and Dr. Gerd Steinmueller which also represents artworks of Thomas Kellner. The exhibition opened on June 25th, 2020. Kellner was a guest lecturer for Fine Art Photography at the Justus-Liebig-Universitaet from 2003-2004. Gerd Steinmueller started his studies at the Justus-Liebig-Universitaet in 1974 and lectures at the Institute for Fine Art Education (IfK) since 1996.
The exhibition presents a wide range of two-dimensional works in the field of painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and collage. The main focus lies on the art of the last four decades. The artworks reflect a journey of artistic creation which students of the Justus-Liebig-Universitaet in Giessen created. 28 artists are participating in the exhibition who have their main emphasis on the last decades since 1980. The establishment of guest professorship at the university in 1982 opened opportunities of shifting genres at the institute. Represented artists had the chance to integrate new ideas during their time at the university. The works reflect non-representational to representational tendencies that can be attributed to the change in artistic perception. The exhibition shows the shift of old media to new media. You can still visit the exhibition in Giessen until August 2nd, 2020.
