Current Exhibition

The Essence Of The Vacuum Cleaner - Lutz Möller

Galerie Geyso, April 27 - July 5, 2024

 

 

On Friday, April 26, we opened our solo exhibition of the international acclaimed artist Lutz Möller, whose nine works were recently included in the Federal Republic's collection of contemporary art.

The exhibition is accompanied by a richly illustrated catalog with a text by art historian and curator Dr. Andreas Bee. "Lutz Möller has been drawing the same everyday objects for over sixty years: vacuum cleaner, irons and ironing boards, toasters and mixers, bed sheets and towels hanging on washing lines." Möllers qick and practiced style unfolds a light and effortless effect on the viewer and "the drawings reveal a surprising beauty", writes the author Andreas Bee in his catalog text "I Want To Break Free".

The sensitive documentary by the Belgian film team Tillo Huygelen, Jolke Van Aerde and Martijn Van de Wiele, takes the viewers into the world of the Geyso 20 studio. They show many facets of the encounter with Möller, in which quiet and thoughtful moments alternate with humorous interactions between Lutz Möller, the team and his fellow artists.

If you would like to meet Lutz Möller in person, then come to the gallery on Sunday, June, 9 at 3:00 p.m. Merit Schongar and the artist will talk about art, irons, vacuum cleaners and much more over coffee and cake.

Merit Schongar will give the final public tour on June, 29 at 6:00 p.m.

We look forward to your visit.

Exhibition

Christine Hoffmann exhibits at the international Festival IDYLLEREI - 24 in Nuremberg

May 31 - June 2, 2024

Barrier-free festival of the arts, KulturWerkstatt Auf AEG, Nuremberg

 

We are delighted that our colleagues from Nuremberg have invited Christine Hoffmann to show her work at the international festival IDYLLEREI - 24.

The people in her pictures fit in our idea of queer and diverse representing our open idea of normality. This fits very well into a festival that explores this topic both artistically as well in workshops and seminars: Where are the normal people and what is normality?

The figures in her paintings look at us directly. At the same time, their facial expressions are reserved and their posture are somewhat stiff. Her characteristic tremulous way of painting contrasts this rigidity and sets people and their surroundings in motion.

The people in her pictures have diverse backgrounds: fashonistas form the TV-show "Shopping Queen", construction workers, paramedics, firemen and many more. They reflect the diversity of our current social normality. The festival visitors will experience this in Nuremberg.

Christine Hoffmanns' work will be shown in dialogue with works by artists from Serbia, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and Cuba, as well as from Hamburg, Berlin, Osnabrück, Nuremberg, Schermbeck, Dreden and Zeulenroda-Tribes.

Check out the festival programme here.

Mourning


The Geyso20 atelier community is very sad about the loss of Dr. Gerhild Kaselow. For over twenty years, she has played a key role in creating the atelier life. She has curated numerous exhibitions and projects. We remember her as a person with a strong empathy for the artists. With her great enthusiasm for Outsider Art, she will always play a big role in our lives and also in the atelier history.

Our condolences go out to her family.

The portrait was made by one of her favorite artists, Volker Darnedde.
