Palast der Republik. Satellite

KUNSTHALLE ROSTOCK at KVOST

Curated by Elke Neumann / With Árpád Bondy & Margit Knapp, Gerd Danigel, Georg Eckelt, Thomas Florschuetz, Fred Rubin, Berit Petzsch & Dana Mosemann.

 

A cooperation between KVOST and Kunsthalle Rostock.

“Palast der Republik – Utopia, Inspiration, Controversy” at the Kunsthalle Rostock, with works by over 40 artists, recalls a vanished and yet unforgotten building in Berlin. For a few weeks the Rostock exhibition will be accompanied by the show “Palast der Republik. Satellite – Kunsthalle Rostock at KVOST” in Berlin which will act as a greeting to the city and at the same time as an invitation to Rostock.

With Árpád Bondy & Margit Knapp, Gerd Danigel, Georg Eckelt, Thomas Florschuetz, Fred Rubin, Berit Petzsch & Dana Mosemann, the exhibition shows six artistic positions, who are participating in Rostock and present more works in the Berlin satellite. In photography and video, the exhibition at the Kunstverein Ost approaches the building from its creation through its use to its demolition, thus offering the opportunity to encounter the Palast der Republik in Berlin again.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a richly illustrated catalog published by Mitteldeutscher Verlag.
