Elsewhere is here: 70 years of twinning cities Hannover & Bristol

One of the first pair of UK-German twinning cities, Hannover and Bristol look back at a colourful shared past. How do artists experience and process this partnership? The extraordinary project "Elsewhere is here : Anderswo ist hier" brings together four artists from BV studios in Bristol (Alec Stevens, Catherine Knight, Robert Luzar and David Morgan-Davies), one curator (Ruth Piper) and artists from Hannover (Conrad Veit, Jean Sikiaridis, Marlene Bart, Sven-Julien Kanclerski and Rui Zhang) for an inspiring exchange in which artists visit eachother and create their own works as a response. 

The final exhibitions in Hannover and Bristol will create a legacy of the 70th anniversary of the twinning between the cities - join us in experiencing their interpretation of cultural and artistic exchange around place, proximity, self and other!

  • When: 12 July - 12 August, 2018
  • Where: TURBA Gallery, Stephanusstraße 23, 30449 Hannover

"In the current political climate we feel that now, more than ever, we need to celebrate the spirit of reconciliation; the links between the two cities and build connections for future generations. This reciprocal exchange between Bristol and Hanover artists will be the first for several years" -  BV Studios.
