This exhibit shows how three artists from Germany reflect on water and the multitude of ways in which it is used, applied and presented today. Jonas Blume’s topic are the cultural representations of water between reality and virtual reality, realism and idealisation, Anuk Miladinovic creates and overlays film sequences that show the different cultural uses of water. The window-like landscape collages by Marte Kiessling from rural Camac in France make nature appear as a place of rest and meditation in our time. The title of the exhibit, DEEP WATER CULTURES, mirrors the cultural urge to manage and influence nature, and simultaneously summarizes the artistic concepts about the cultural handling of water that are on display here. - Tina Sauerländer, curator
