Matthias Berthold BREATHE

May 7 to October 30, 2022

With »Matthias Berthold BREATHE«, the Kunstforum der TU Darmstadt will present its next outdoor exhibition starting May 7, 2022. Berthold's works are characterized by his intense preoccupation with the everyday. The exhibition title BREATHE refers to one of his numerous instructions that will be found in public space as part of the exhibition.

Matthias Berthold (*1946 in Lübeck) has dedicated himself to art in public spaces and art on buildings in numerous projects since 2005. One example of this is his »Word Field«, the facade artwork consisting of a total of 39 words, which was selected in 2018 as part of an art competition and implemented in 2019 at the energy center of the TU Darmstadt on the Lichtwiese. Berthold, who studied ethnology and illustration, has been active as a visual artist since 1992.

The exhibition »Matthias Berthold BREATHE« is after »HOME SWEET HOME« as part of the »11. Darmstadt Photography Days« and »HILDE ROTH. A Time Travel through Darmstadt 1950 – 1990« the third exhibition of the Kunstforum der TU Darmstadt in public space. Let yourself be surprised!
