ANN: ‘Exil der Menschen und der Bilder, einst und jetzt’ – Villa Liebermann, Berlin, 1 Nov 2018, 7pm

Exil der Menschen und der Bilder, einst und jetzt 

Gesprächsrunde in der Liebermann-Villa am Wannsee, Berlin, am  1. November um 19 Uhr.

rbb-Redakteur Harald Asel spricht mit:

Dr. Johannes Nathan, Kunsthistoriker und Kunsthändler

Prof. Renata Stih, Künstlerin

Prof. Dr. Christoph Stölzl, Historiker, Museologe, Publizist und Politiker

Zu den prägenden Erfahrungen von Künstlern im 20. Jahrhundert gehört das Exil. Sei es, dass sie selbst, an Leib und Leben bedroht, ihre Heimat verlassen und in einer fremden Umgebung neue Netzwerke für ihr Schaffen, aber auch für die Wahrnehmung ihrer Kunst suchen müssen. Sei es, dass ihre Werke im Ausland für politische Haltungen und künstlerische Positionen stehen, die zuhause gefährdet sind. Die Liebermann Villa am Wannsee macht derzeit diesen Zusammenhang exemplarisch deutlich. In der partiellen Rekonstruktion einer Ausstellung vom Sommer 1938 in London sind jene Bilder versammelt, die bald nach der denunziatorischen Münchner Schau  „Entartete Kunst“ das britische Publikum mit wichtigen Vertretern der deutschen Moderne bekannt machte.

In unserem Gesprächssalon wollen wir die Brücke ins Heute schlagen. Was bedeutet es für Künstler, in der Fremde anzukommen? Wie verändert sich ihre Kunst und welchen Erwartungen eines neuen Publikums stehen sie gegenüber? Welche Rolle spielt überhaupt internationale Aufmerksamkeit zum Schutz vor Verfolgung? Und was können Kunsthandel und Sammler dabei bewirken?

Die Liebermann-Villa verkauft für diese Veranstaltung Tickets. Anlass ist unsere aktuelle Ausstellung „London 1938. Mit Kandinsky, Liebermann und Nolde gegen Hitler“.

CONF: Les Societes des amis des arts (Paris, 12 Nov 18)

Institut national d’histoire de l’art (INHA), Paris, November 12, 2018

Le programme « Les Sociétés des Amis des Arts » conduit par l’INHA arrive à son premier terme avec la mise en ligne d’une partie des notices saisies dans la base de données AGORHA.

Ouvert en 2014, ce programme a pour objectif de contribuer à l’étude des sociétés qui se sont formées en France au cours du long XIXe siècle et jusque dans les années 1960 dans le but de soutenir et de promouvoir l’art contemporain au niveau local. Si leurs structures administratives et les moyens qu’elles ont pu mettre en œuvre ont différé d’une société à l’autre, elles ont toutes ambitionné de fédérer des amateurs d’art et de contribuer au dynamisme de la vie locale par le biais d’expositions, de loteries et d’achats venant enrichir les musées de province. Les recherches de ces dernières années ont permis de rassembler un corpus concourant à faire progresser la connaissance d’une histoire de l’art décentralisée, tout en interrogeant la fonction de l’art au sein des réseaux de sociabilité.

Cet après-midi d’étude permettra la présentation des ressources scientifiques collectées et désormais mises à la disposition du public. Elle proposera deux études de cas qu’ont pu approfondir des étudiants ayant collaboré au programme, une présentation d’exposition pour illustrer comment une telle problématique d’étude peut être mise en scène dans l’espace muséal et se conclura sur une table ronde permettant d’ouvrir de nouvelles perspectives.
