With RADAR. CURRENT PROJECTS FROM ART HIGH SCHOOLS begins a new exhibition series in the Kunstforum der TU Darmstadt. From September 16 to October 21, 2018, RADAR will present selected works by young students from renowned regional and national art academies.
RADAR is the 11th exhibition of the Kunstforum der TU Darmstadt, founded in February 2016. Since its foundation, young artists have been the focus of the exhibition program. In the summer of 2016 sculptor Carola Keitel made with OUT OF ORDER the first institutional solo exhibition, which also took place in the outer area of the spacious grounds of TU Darmstadt. FEARLESS. The work of ten artists working to win the awards for young artists took center stage (23 April to 25 June 2017). Nazli Moripek's video installation Today I Remember You was shown in public for the first time in the exhibition LOST IN TRANSITION (September 24 to December 10, 2017).
RADAR takes as a new – regularly held – exhibition format of the Kunstforum der TU Darmstadt surprising and original artistic positions in the focus, which have attracted attention during the annual tours of well-known art schools. As part of the supporting program, a new event format will be established for the first time together with the 806qm Cultural Center: guided tour and EXTRA, organized by the participating artists.
The opening act will be given by Guy Gormley and Lisa Gutscher of the Städelschule Frankfurt, Isabell Ratzinger of the Academy of Design Offenbach, Danae Hoffmann, Jonas Müller-Ahlheim, and Dominic Scharfenberg of the State Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe.
The works of these six artists working in very different ways revolve around the question of space. They are expressed in various media, such as painting, installation or skultpture – or by action in public space.
