"Quiet Resistance" – textile art by Kaiserring scholarship holder Hangama Amiri on display in the NEWCOMER KWS Art Lounge

The embroidered chiffons refer on the one hand to the domestic activity of sewing and on the other to a tradition that is passed down from generation to generation but is culturally ignored and often remains hidden. In the exhibition at NEWCOMER, the chiffons not only celebrate the women's craft, but also refer to the architecture of the gallery, entering into a dialog with it.

“With her exhibition, the artist empathetically points out social grievances of women, who, despite the restrictions on their freedoms and rights, will not be discouraged and create their own space for personal expression," said Dr. Felix Büchting, spokesman for the KWS Executive Board, at the vernissage.

Opening of the SCREENPLAY exhibition by Gruppe Stumpf

"Screenplay" by Gruppe Stumpf transforms the NEWCOMER KWS Art Lounge into a multiverse

The artists have developed a concept especially for the NEWCOMER KWS Art Lounge that separates the interior and exterior spaces of the gallery, but also connects them again. Even the brief glimpses through the gallery panes arouse curiosity.

NEWCOMER becomes a multiverse and makes it possible for the first time to see an essential part of the exhibition with the moving image without having to enter the gallery.

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 reconnects them. In this way, they allow the controversial features mentioned above to interact with each other.

A THING THAT MAKES A CASTLE – Sabine Müller’s exhibition at the NEWCOMER KWS Art Lounge

Small commonplace situations often fade into the background in daily life. With her artistic categories of painting and drawing, photography and video, or as an object sculpturally formed in ceramics and porcelain, Sabine Müller brings these into the viewer's focus.

The exhibition can be seen until November 10 in the rooms of the NEWCOMER KWS Art Lounge in Tiedexer Straße in Einbeck.

"Of Harmony and Disrepair" – Works by Katharina Kühne on display at the NEWCOMER KWS Art Lounge

Katharina Kühne examines the structures of life. She interprets them in her artistic work in a painterly, installative and sculptural way. "Based on an admiration for our planet and the complex systems that make it a habitable place for us humans, I would like to depict the beauty and diversity of the earth and at the same time encourage us to reflect on our treatment of the environment," she says.

Exhibition finale "bara gaman by Philipp Valenta

One last opportunity to view the exhibition "bara gaman" in the NEWCOMER KWS Art Lounge and the artist talk with Philipp Valenta.


Just for the fun of it? „bara gaman“ in the KWS Art Lounge NEWCOMER

Is everything on display at the KWS Art Lounge in Tiedexer Straße in Einbeck just for the fun of it? The title of conceptual artist Philipp Valenta’s exhibition suggests this, since „bara gaman“ is Icelandic and means „all fun“. In his multimedia and expansive works, Valenta succeeds in translating frictions, oddities and problems into images and sounds. The ostensibly humorous title of the exhibition is interpreted fatalistically and shows that not everything is „bara gaman – just fun“ indeed.
