Jetzt! 53 young artists exhibit

The exhibition project 'Jetzt! Junge Malerei in Deutschland' ('Now! Painting in Germany Today') aims to show a valid cross-section of painting by young artists created in Germany, as well as including the medium in all its forms without any conceptual or ideological restrictions - only the reference to the panel painting as the classical form of painting provides a conceived 'framework'.

The painting as a medium of painting is still in continuous discussion today. What is the current situation of the medium of painting? The group exhibition 'Now! Painting in Germany Today" deals with the question and presents positions of artists exploring the potential of the medium in various ways. The works of the young painters demonstrate that the significance of color as a material and image carriers for contemporary painting remains unaffected, regardless of the discussions about expansive varieties of the medium.

Three predefined project criteria defined the selection of the young artists participating: Only painting considered classical panel painting was supposed to be the subject of the joint exhibition, the confrontation with the medium on the limited area of the square painting. In the process, all forms of extending painting were dispensed with, including painterly, spatial-installative interventions, multimedia painting without painting explorations, in order to be able to discuss what possibilities the painted picture still has today against the background of digitalization. The show also concentrates only on artists born since the late 1970s; thus the first generation that essentially no longer grew up and was educated in the experience of a divided Germany. 

The selection of the artists took place in numerous studio visits by the curatorial team.

The team of curators was also supported in the selection of artists by established painters*, art academies, art critics* and colleagues* from other museums. 

Participating artists*: Mona Ardeleanu, Israel Aten, Paula Baader, Lydia Balke, Cornelia Baltes, Jagoda Bednarsky, Viola Bittl, Peppi Bottrop, Andreas Breunig, Paul Czerlitzki, Benjamin Dittrich, Jens Einhorn, Jenny Forster, Pius Fox, Max Frintrop, Sabrina Fritsch, Ina Gerken, Fabian Ginsberg, Gregor Gleiwitz, Lukas Glinkowski, Henriette Grahnert, Dana Greiner, Vivian Greven, Sebastian Gögel, Toulu Hassani, Sabrina Haunsperg, Franziska Holstein, Aneta Kajzer, Sumi Kim, Maximilian Kirmse, Li-Wen Kuo, David Lehmann, Benedikt Leonhardt, Florian Meisenberg, Monika Michalko, Hannes Michanek, Simon Modersohn, Bastian Muhr, Anna Nero, Moritz Neuhoff, Vera Palme, Alexander Pröpster, Franziska Reinbothe, Daniel Rossi, Markus Saile, Moritz Schleime, Jana Schröder, Daniel Schubert, Kristina Schuldt, Alicia Viebrock, Stefan Vogel, Jonas Weichsel, Tristan Wilczek    

From 19 September 2019 to 19 January 2020, the show will simultaneously present around 500 works by 53 artists at three exhibition venues: the Kunstmuseum Bonn, the Museum Wiesbaden and the Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz - Museum Gunzenhauser.
