more information

We are grateful to all the artists for their participation in our international exhibitions 2015 / 2016, in which we aim to promote smaller-scale works, including meditative aspects. We are especially pleased about the high quality of the pictures and thank all participants for the commitment.
 Further information and photos of the exhibition will be published soon.

The color does something”

The bonus issue will feature a Prelude exhibition, which – as already announced – gives an insight into the implementation of the event concept of the intercultural art installation. To meet the future size of our exhibitions, especially for the bonus issue up to three images per artist are exhibited. Due to organizational considerations (for example the awards ceremony) artworks will not be published until 2016; this means a limit of one picture per artist for the main exhibition and the traveling exhibitions.

The invitation time for our first art installation was just two months. We are happy that we were able to realize the exhibition in this short time, and would like once again to thank all the participants for their trust and their helpful hints. The valuable experience that we have gained will be constructive for the future, especially in terms of simplifying registration. 

The exhibition is an artistic arrangement that consists mainly of the arranged in color spaces small format pictures of artists from around the world, which are accompanied with artistically designed sculptures and pictures of Kurt Ries and the lyrical poetry of Gabriele Walter as well art objects and multimedia arrangements.

96 artists participated from the following countries:

Argentina, Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Costa Rica, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Luxembourg, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, South Africa, Turkey, Ukraine, USA and Germany.

Thank you for your great work!
