Hope is Maybe

HOPE IS MAYBE is an art project on the diversity of hope. Hope is hardly to be defined. What do we HOPE for? Does HOPE depend on the countr y of origin? Our language? Our education? Our faith? Our personal emotions? HOPE IS MAYBE. Michael Haerteis at Kunst verorten has initiated this art project in collaboration with Jesuit Refu- gee Service in Munich. Based on interviews with asylum seekers, Michael has collected prominent statements that center around these questions. In a second step, artists were asked to choose a citation from a list, reflect on it, and create or share an artwork. More than 280 artworks, from over 150 artists around the world were submitted. An international jury selected 75 works of art to become part of the exhibition here at the airport of Munich.

HOPE IS MAYBE will be growing and changing with each new artwork and further inter views, demonstrating its fluency of interpretations.

“ We would like to encourage  people to reflect on hope, their personal and on those of others, like refugees and asylum seekers”, states Brother Dieter Müller SJ, member of the selection jury.

This exhibtion shows works of art by:

Alex Kamweru (E AK), Alwina Heinz (D), Ana Sladetic (HR), Anja Struck (D), Anna Fr ydman (D), Athanasios Aléxo (I), Barbara Steinman (CDN), Béatrice Lebreton (USA), Beverly Ress (USA), Birgit Hef ter (D), Birgit Lochmann (IRL), Camilla Luihn (N), Carolina Pinzon Rivera (CO), Christine Renner (D), Christou Christos (CY ), Cornelia Rapp (D), Eric Mayen (D), Gabriele Stolz (D), Grace Graupe-Pillard (USA), Hagen Klenner t (D), Holger Her twig (D), Ian Kirkpatrick (GB), Jessica Russo Scherr (D), Jo Dunn (GB), Johannes Gerard (NL), Kerstin Römhild  (D), Kevin Ryan (IRL), Kevo Stero (E AK), Klaus Fezer (D), Kuzana Ogg (USA), Lara Mouvée (D), Maria Mathieu (D) , Maria Mijares (USA), Marija Kondres (HR), Mar ta Pieregonczuk (GB), Mar y Rouncefield (GB), Michelle M. Vara (USA), Renata Sinclair (GB), Rochelle Shicoff (USA), Ron Moppett (CDN), Rosa Quint (D), Sarawut Chutiwongpeti ( TH), Shirin Abedinirad (IR), Simone Jimena Rudolphi (GB), Sonia Yousefi Azimi (GB), Susan Plover (GB), Susanne Pohl (D), Tan Chee Hon (MAL), Tanja Fender (D), Terr y Braunstein & Victor Raphael (USA) und Vaiva Kovieraitė-Trumpė (LT ).

Was ist HOFFNUNG? Lässt sie sich definieren? Kann man sie teilen? Nachvollziehen?

Oder ist sie rein subjektives Empfinden, geprägt von unserem kulturellen Hintergrund? Unserer Sprache? Unserer Erfahrung?

Diese Fragen legt Michael Härteis von KUNST VERORTEN zugrunde, als er Asylsuchende zum Begriff Hoffnung befragte. Entstanden ist daraus eine Zitatensammlung, die als Inspira- tionsquelle für internationale KünstlerInnen diente. Mehr als 150 Kunstschaffende aus allen fünf Kontinenten haben über 280 digitale Abbildungen von Kunstwerken eingereicht. Die Ausstellung zeigt nun 75 Werke, die von einer internationalen Jur y ausgewählt wurden.

„Hope is Maybe“ – Hoffnung ist Vielleicht: Diese Antwort eines jungen Mannes aus Nigeria – einem Land, aus dem 2017 ein Großteil der Asylanträge vom Bundesamt  negativ beschie- den wurde – hat der Ausstellung ihren Titel gegeben. Das Kunstprojekt Hope is Maybe ist als fortlaufender Prozess konzipiert: Die Über- legungen zur Hoffnung sollen weitergehen, es können weiter Kunstwerke eingereicht werden, die dann in späteren Ausstellungen gezeigt werden. Zusätzlich soll an jedem Veranstal- tungsort ein Hoffnungs-Workshop stattfinden. Das kreative Schaffen der teilnehmenden KünstlerInnen in Verbindung mit den gesam- melten Zitaten bilden die Grundlage zur philo- sophischen  Reflexion.  „Wir möchten Menschen im Alltag dazu anregen, sich mit Hoffnung aus- einanderzusetzen – mit der eigenen Hoffnung und der anderer, zum Beispiel von Menschen auf der Flucht“, so Bruder Dieter Müller SJ, der Mitglied der Jury war.

Die Ausstellung zeigt Kunstwerke von:

Alex Kamweru (E AK), Alwina Heinz (D), Ana Sladetic (HR), Anja Struck (D), Anna Fr ydman (D), Athanasios Aléxo (I), Barbara Steinman (CDN), Béatrice Lebreton (USA), Beverly Ress (USA), Birgit Hef ter (D), Birgit Lochmann (IRL), Camilla Luihn (N), Carolina Pinzon Rivera (CO), Christine Renner (D), Christou Christos (CY ), Cornelia Rapp (D), Eric Mayen (D), Gabriele Stolz (D), Grace Graupe-Pillard (USA), Hagen Klenner t (D), Holger Her twig (D), Ian Kirkpatrick (GB), Jessica Russo Scherr (D), Jo Dunn (GB), Johannes Gerard (NL), Kerstin Römhild  (D), Kevin Ryan (IRL), Kevo Stero (E AK), Klaus Fezer (D), Kuzana Ogg (USA), Lara Mouvée (D), Maria Mathieu (D) , Maria Mijares (USA), Marija Kondres (HR), Mar ta Pieregonczuk (GB), Mar y Rouncefield (GB), Michelle M.

City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs
Presents the 2017/18
City of Los Angeles (C.O.L.A.) Individual Artist Fellowships
Honoring the City’s Creative Spirit

Los Angeles – The City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) is pleased to announce the 2017/18 City of Los Angeles (C.O.L.A.) Individual Artist Fellowship recipients. These Fellows will produce a new body of work with grants of $10,000 each and their new works will be premiered by the City of Los Angeles in the Spring of 2018.

The 2017/18 C.O.L.A. Fellows in the design/visual arts, literary arts*, and performing arts** are:

David Hullfish Bailey
Guillermo Bert
Terry Braunstein
Cassils
Sandra de la Loza
Michelle Dizon
Tim Durfee
June Edmonds
d. Sabela Grimes**
Peter J. Harris*
Michele O’Marah
Julie Shafer
Doris Sung
Kristina Wong**

These Fellows were chosen in three review-rounds by nine interdisciplinary peer panelists who were curators, educators, non-profit gallerists, museum directors, and/or past COLA Fellows  

“C.O.L.A. Fellows are the types of unique civic entrepreneurs that we need in this city,” said DCA General Manager Danielle Brazell. “DCA is proud to honor these creative visionaries and nurture their symbiotic relationships with LA and other artists and the city’s history and identity as an international arts capital.”

“C.O.L.A. Fellows represent the spectrum of LA’s exemplary mid-career artists,” said DCA Grants Administration Division Director Joe Smoke. “The C.O.L.A. grants allow these accomplished, influential, and not yet ultra-famous artists to create new work that the City of Los Angeles will premiere for the general public in one or more group presentations accompanied by a promotional catalog as well as educational artist talks.”

The C.O.L.A. visual arts exhibition will take place at DCA’s Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery located at 4800 Hollywood Boulevard in Barnsdall Park; and the C.O.L.A. performance and literary showcase will occur at Grand Performances at California Plaza in downtown LA. The C.O.L.A. 2018 catalog will be designed and published by Susan Silton, a former C.O.L.A. awardee.
