An exhibition by ifa

4 February - 5 March 2017, 10 am to 5 pm daily (except Sundays and public holidays)

The exhibition is about Germany as a 'space of art', and how the country’s open federal policies have greatly influenced the shaping and evolving  of such a space through international artists residing and working in Germany. The exhibition is the first of its kind, put together in the transnational form, based on foreign cultural policies of the European Union.
Transcending the borders put up by categories of art forms, groups of works by Armando, Candice Breitz, Tony Cragg, Marianne Eigenheer, Ayse Erkmen, Christine Hill, Magdalena Jetelová, Per Kirkeby, Joseph Kosuth, Marie-Jo Lafontaine, Nam June Paik, Giuseppe Spagnulo and Herman de vries stand for the myriad artistic varieties to be seen in transcultural unity. By presenting exemplary positions of the last thirty years, the exhibition follows the meaning and the influence that the men and women artists, living here and known internationally, have had on themes, media and forms of expression in the art discourse in Germany and internationally.
The exhibition is part of the Kolkata Art Fair and CIMA Awards and is presented in collaboration with the Central Ministry of Culture, Government of India.
