A project about the relationships between body, shelter and networks, a collaboration of Künstlerhaus Stuttgart’s workshops.
For body shelter net, the workshops of Künstlerhaus all dealt with the same topic. 35 artists take part in this project and exhibit works that were created at Künstlerhaus. The works represent the complete range of artistic techniques that are offered ar Künstlerhaus – lithography, screen printing, etching, sculpture, ceramics, photography and mixed media.
The focus of the project lies on the artistic practice that is taking place at Künstlerhaus and on the artists who have come together to collaboratively develop an exhibition. Thus, collaborative work forms the starting point of artistic explorations of the relationships between body, protection and networks – body, shelter, net. The exhibition ties in with the collaborative project Zinnober that was exhibited at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart in 2012. After its premiere and a few content-related additions, the exhibition toured around museums in the Stuttgart area. The idea for body, shelter, net derives from the mission of Künstlerhaus Stuttgart: Supporting artists from Stuttgart and the surrounding area by offering studio spaces and interdisciplinary workshops.
The workshops for photography, film, screen printing, etching, lithography, relief printing, ceramics and media production (audio and video) are located inside one building that also houses studios, offices and exhibition spaces. At Künstlerhaus Stuttgart in Reuchlinstrasse 4b the art of many Stuttgart-based artists is being developed. Whether they work alone or in groups, there is always an opportunity to get in touch or collaborate with international artists who visit Künstlerhaus. The workshops regularly offer introduction courses and seminars on various topics. The workshops not only offer space for artistic experiments and production but also for discussions and exchange.
