Kunsthalle Baden-Baden is an “art room” close to the city center. There is also a serviced Cafe, which I should really have certainly visited as an alternative. In the course of my fast 24 hour take a look at to Baden-Baden for the annual New Pop Festival, “Human landscapes” by Alina Szapocznikov was on show at Kunsthalle Baden-Baden. For an entrance charge of 7€ per adult I have certainly awaited fairly a bit. And got fairly disappointed incredibly quickly right after getting into the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden. Kunsthalle, which indicates one thing like art hall straight translated, translated in genuine life into one particular not that spacious hall of exhibition. Normally, I take my time at (art) museums, study the descriptions and dip into the exhibited operate. But not at Kunsthalle Baden-Baden. Just the (low) quantity of exhibitons was a pity, for this price tag.
Alina Szapocznikov, the artist for the summer time exhibition at Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, revolved all her operate, sculptures and drawings, about the human physique. This was the 1st comprehensive solo exhibition for the polish artist which currently died in 1973, aged just 47 years. Right after obtaining to devote a number of years in concentration camps, as a polish jew, she sooner or later moved to Paris.
In her sculptures and drawings, she mostly dissected the female physique into fragments such as lips, breasts, bellies and limbs in order to reassemble them and integrate them as traces into their just about abstract operates. Normally it was her personal physique that discovered its way into the operate as an impression.
