Anna Oppermann

Revival of Ensemble Art


Anna Oppermann († 1993) was an exceptional artist in the international art world. She created "ensembles" of process, concept and graphic art in such a way that they not only have to be "displayed", but often "performed", as well. Because of their demanding presentation requirements, her ensembles are only rarely shown in constantly changing variations. The Württembergischer Kunstverein has taken on the challenge of "reviving" seven large ensembles, reinterpreted in a new installation by the curator and Oppermann expert Ute Vorkoeper. This exhibition in Stuttgart, which run parallel to the documenta XII, was the world's first posthumous "re-view" of Oppermann's works and offered several solutions to the question of how performative forms of fine art can be represented.

Artistic directors: Ute Vorkoeper (Curator) in collaboration with Iris Dressler and Hans D. Christ (Directors of Württembergischer Kunstverein).
Venue: Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart: 17 May - 12 Aug. 2007
