Exhibition with two chapters

In times when contemporary art often reflects virtual realities and the digitization of the world, a parallel art production is emerging, one that deliberately uses haptic materials and artisan production processes. The two-part exhibition project Further Thoughts on Earthy Materials at the GAK Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst Bremen and the Kunsthaus Hamburg asks what the underlying questions of the shift towards techniques and the material of ceramics are.

Further Thoughts on Earthy Materials brings together works of a younger generation of artists that take an unconventional approach to ceramic material and establish references to the present. Experience their works from different perspectives in Hamburg and Bremen this season to see the newest trends in ceramic art production:
