Ny udstilling med kunstnere fra Rostock og København

HAUSBESUCH-HUSBESØG – En udstillings-platform, der arbejder med at bygge bro, over Østersøen og imellem kunstnere og beboer i et givent boligområde. Kig ind og få en snak med folkene bag projektet, om deres tanker bag og ideen om at skabe Hausbesuch-Husbesøg i Aarhus. Udstillingen fylder domen frem til 30. november. Søren Vestergaard har været forbi med sit kamera, tag et inspirations kig og kom på besøg, at se det live.

HAUSBESUCH-HUSBESØG is a new channel for art reception, “kultursolidarische” action and cultural participation. This project is based upon civic involvement in a cosmopolitan community.

HAUSBESUCH-HUSBESØG was initiated by the painter Grit Sauerborn in Rostock. Since 2012 it has excited more and more people and made its way from the coast of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern to the neighboring countries on the Baltic Sea. Many Danish artists have been involved multiple times.

The concept – how it works

Residents of a neighborhood invite artists to HAUSBESUCH-HUSBESØG. As hosts they open their doors and make art makers and those curious about art feel welcome in their flats, offices and workshops. The different actors set up exhibits in the private rooms and make stages for musicians, singers and speakers. People come into contact with each other through the art, get to know each other and understand each other better on even ground.

Vision for sustainable futures: We want to introduce the project in its entirety in Aarhus subsequent to HUSBESØG in Kopenhagen. With an exhibition and small seminar we wish to inform people and engage in conversation. We wish to show the current artistic works from HUSBESØG in an exhibit with 14 Danish and German artists. In this way we wish to make the idea of HAUSBESUCH-HUSBESØG a part of the Kulturbro over Østersøen.

Vision for the city of the future: Residents of a neighborhood invite artists to HAUSBESUCH-HUSBESØG. As hosts they open their doors and make art makers and those curious about art feel welcome in their flats, offices and workshops. The different actors set up exhibits in the private rooms and make stages for musicians, singers and speakers. People come into contact with each other through the art, get to know each other and understand each other better on even ground.
