TO THE EXHIBITION

ORIGINS - ORIGINS

Maik Buttler's artistic work focuses on the core of human existence, researching the essence of being. Being thrown back on oneself, existential action in crises, are subject to investigation, as are the resilience and fragility of the human body.

Installations: The uncovering of archaic original constructions and forms, which have enabled the daily survival of people in space for thousands of years, the simplest constructions for the minimum subsistence level, as they are still used by people in the world today, form the focus: ORIGINS - ORIGINS

 

Painting: The examination of time and development in the theme EVOLUTION presents independent organic structures of origin and archetypal forms, while the ANIMAL as a counterpart is another subject of research. The depiction and treatment in CORPUS, the human body in space, time, spirit and constitution is given special attention.

MEET ME AT THE CORNER EXHIBITION SERIES - ART AND ENCOUNTERS

The exhibitions at KUNSTraum SCHWERIN focus on a different theme each year. In 2024, the KUNSTraum SCHWERIN is showing the exhibition series meet me at the corner - art and encounters with seven exhibitions.

The very layout of the exhibition space with its open glass fronts on the corner of Platz der Jugend invites the public to encounter the contemporary art works on display. In 2024, the character of the location will be incorporated into the presentations, so that an even more direct approach and form of immediate encounter can be found. The boundaries between inside and outside will blur, bringing art into the public space and creating a "meeting place for art". The KUNSTraum SCHWERIN will undergo diverse and surprising transformations and maintain the tension throughout the year.
