Jan Neukirchen and Christian Lohre are Gruppe Stumpf. Since 2014, they have been operating in the field of tension between sculpture, installation, sound art and performance.

Especially for NEWCOMER, the artists have developed a concept that separates the interior and exterior spaces of the gallery, but also connects them again. In this way, they allow the controversial features mentioned above to interact with each other.

Using projection machines that transport sound and image productions, visitors experience different spatial and sensory impressions.

On November 30 at 6.30 pm, the artist duo invites visitors to the opening in the NEWCOMER KWS Art Lounge. Dr. Felix Büchting, Spokesman of the Executive Board of KWS, will be welcoming guests to the exhibition opening. Dr. habil. Thomas Becker, Cultural Studies at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, will explain the works.

Exhibition duration November 30, 2023 to February 3, 2024
