The Sprengel Museum Hannover, the kestnergesellschaft and the Kunstverein Hannover together present an overview exhibition of the international, contemporary art scene in Germany under the title "Made in Germany Zwei".
The exhibition presents from 17 May to 19 August 2012 about 40 pathbreaking positions of a younger generation of international artists, who live and work in Germany. With this exhibition the three institutions of Hannover continue the successful show "Made in Germany" from the year 2007.
For "Made in Germany Zwei" the idea of "Made in Germany" was advanced by a team of curators of all three institutions: The exhibiton will be curated by all of the three institutions. Many of the artists developped new workings especially for "Made in Germany Zwei".
Marcellvs L. at n.b.K. | Kunst und Philosophie (06/24/2011)
Apparently, there is a friendship between art and philosophy. As with every friendship, articulating a certain difference is part of it. Art and philosophy are not the same. But the difference already passes through the concept of art and philosophy itself. Perhaps art and philosophy are connected by the fact that art generates a singular concept of art, and philosophy its own conception of philosophy. The exhibition invites artists to define for themselves a relation to philosophy: from the perspective and with the means of artistic articulation.

Marcellvs L. at Today Art Museum Beijing (08/04/2010)
From 15 August until 28 August, 2010 the Today Art Museum Beijing will host the exhibition "Stadt am Rande", curated by Pierre Wolter and Melanie Zagrean. Initiated by the Goethe Institute Beijing and transmediale, it mostly presents Berlin-based artists working – in extraordinary ways – on 'urban topology'. Materialistic and virtual topologies are the topics of transmediale Award 2010 winner Michelle Teran and BoredomResearch whereas Bengt Sjölén, Adam Somlai Fischer and Matthias Fitz as well as Maria Vedder, Tudor Bratu and Martin Howse work with invisible and immaterialistic topologic structures. Julian Oliver, Dave Ball and Julius von Bismarck sabotage existing structures, Mader | Stublic | Wiermann und Marcellvs L. re-interpret them and Miles Chalcraft discovers long established topolgies anew. Niklas Goldbach und Marc Aschenbrenner critically reflect on the interplay between society and the complexity of structures.
Dates: 16 August - 28 August 2010 Opening: 15 August, 2010 at 19h
