EMIL NOLDE

4 Oct 2019 – 5 Jan 2020

Emil Nolde (1867–1956) was a German expressionist whose hallmark style with its intense colours and ruggedly depicted figures was controversial in his lifetime. In the course of a long career, Nolde was a notorious artist, then a degenerate artist and finally an internationally esteemed icon of early modernism. The Nazis condemned Nolde’s art as un-German and placed him under a professional ban, but he continued to work in private. Nolde was a keen observer and painter of people and nature, particularly of the sea, and also a great lover of flowers. All these subjects feature in the exhibition, which comprises nearly a hundred paintings and watercolours. The show is produced in collaboration with Nolde Stiftung Seebüll.

HOLGER LOODUS
JOURNEY TO THE END OF THE WORLD
4 October – 17 November 2019

Holger Loodus works with painting and kinetic installation that often reference the cinema and its history. Journey to the End of the World revolves around the trip of the black explorer Matthew Henson to the North Pole in 1909; the simultaneous arrival of artist Joseph Beuys’s shamanistic myth creation and social activism on the 20th-century art scene; and the flows of refugees that moved through the Arctic region from Russia to Norway a few years ago.

CAMPFIRE IN A ZOO
22 November 2019 – 5 January 2020

Campfire in a Zoo (2019) is a puppet animation installation that explores and makes visible the complexities of performing and being seen to perform. The exhibition is based on the story of Markku Laakso’s great-grandparents, who with a group of other Sámis toured Germany in 1930 in ethnographic exhibitions, known as Völkerschau, that were presented in zoos.

PETRA LINDHOLM
EMPTY VESSELS
4 October – 17 November 2019

Filmed in Kathmandu, Nepal, Empty Vessels (2016) follows in the footsteps of climbers as they ascend one of the highest mountains in the world. Distant mountain peaks suggest that the satisfaction of reaching the summit will be short-lived – that the climber’s desire for greater heights is unquenchable, much like contemporary society’s constant desire for new thrills.
