The exhibition ABOUT ORDER by artists Sandra Contreras, Anette Kuhn, Sabine Linse, Mariel Poppe, Héctor Velázquez Guitérrez and María Tello adopts fragments of the storyline of Maltese cultural history and their dynamics.
Since 1991, the Berlin Artist Group has exhibited their artistic work together in various spaces. Their collaborations are characterized by common reflections of philosophical topics, artistic materials and different modes of production. ABOUT ORDER develops previously unknown relationships and intercultural points of contact between them. Through these interactions, a mysterious Palimpsest has arisen, comparable to a precious book with enigmatic overwritings. Visitors of the exhibition will be delighted by the presence of beauty and the material quality of the individual works of art.
Sandra Contreras, Anette Kuhn, Sabine Linse, Mariel Poppe, Héctor Velázquez Guiterréz and María Tello.

16th October 2020, 7pm
For the first session of Art Additives of Spazju Kreattiv’s 2020/21 programme, the discussion will deal with the dynamics of the Berlin Artists Group whose works constitute ABOUT ORDER and will be conducted by art historian, journalist and curator of ABOUT ORDER, Verena Voigt.
Centring around the subject of order structures which is the main theme of this exhibition, this discussion will also explore the idea of overwriting. This ‘overwriting’ is taken as the creation of a kind of palimpsest interwoven with the personal narratives embedded in each work of every artist. During the talk, the artists who will be coming from Berlin will explore the fragments of the storyline of the Maltese cultural history and dynamics which were adopted in order to create the exhibition ABOUT ORDER.
This session of ABOUT ORDER will be broadcast live onto facebook.com/spazjukreattiv/
