Introducing a new generation of German artists at the Goethe-Gallery from Oct 2014 to Dec 2015Between October 2014 and December 2015, Goethe-Institut Hongkong presents an exhibition series that introduces a new generation of German artists to Hong Kong. In each exhibition, works by four to five established and promising young German artists will be presented at the Goethe-Gallery. Among them, one or two featured artists will be invited to Hong Kong to give talks and to meet the local general public. The exhibitions will take a similar title with a different focus each time, and all of them will be held in partnership with a different local organisation.
The first exhibition is:
