Barbara Westermann US Flugblätter A group exhibition curated by Birgit Jensen Showing at the same time as Miniscule 23 March to 18 May 2019 Preview Friday 22 March
130 artists from across the world give personal artistic responses to globalisation to create a unique ‘networked exhibition’ in which all contributions are made by email.
Artist Brigit Jensen asks her diverse international network of visual artists to respond to the latest developments in a globalised world. What position do they take and how do the changes and attendant social tensions and conflicts influence their work? How do they position themselves in relation to the transformations of our society in recent years, and their various local impacts?
Birgit Jensen is a Düsseldorf-based artist.

tentoonstellingen 17/02 t/m 25/03 Vlugschrift ............
This exhibition is the result of the network project Flugblätter for which the artist Birgit Jensen invited 130 (inter)national participants. She asked them how they, as visual artists, respond to the latest developments in a globalised world. What position do they take and how do the changes and attendant social tensions and conflicts influence their work?
Each expression of the 130 artists reflects another aspect of our time - be it philosophical, social, political or ecological. It shows that the artistic thinking is rooted in a specific social experience.
......Created as an instinctive reaction of the current crises, (DYS)-TROPISM highlights the dystopian order we are currently living in through the practices of artists from various origins. The exhibition aims to engage in a dialog on culture, politics, environmental issues and technologies, featuring works by Sarah Abu Abdallah, Juliette Bonneviot, Chris Dorland, Celine Gillain, Peter Nagy, !Mediengruppe Bitnik, Jaakko Pallasvuo, Adriana Ramic, Ariane Schick and Barbara Westermann.

Women’s Studio Workshop......
Barbara Westermann is a sculptor and installation artist. Her sculptures, prints, and drawings are minimalist and conceptual, with an emphasis on social sculpture, urban planning, geometry, geophysical mapping, and music. She utilizes site-specific work that involves sculpture, prints, architecture, and engineering, and uses sculpture to ‘embody’ utilitarian objects.

.........and atmosphere of an airport lounge in an installation by Barbara Westermann. Like so many other artworks here, they zoom in on things that we look at but rarely see.
Art and Politics
This exhibition takes an international, intergenerational and interdisciplinary look at the way artists comment on, perceive and provoke political action. From the October Revolution through Tiananmen Square to the Arab Spring, the artists in this show have appropriated primary and secondary source material from film, photographs and newspapers in order to create compelling visual images. They have explored a variety of methodologies including painting, collage, printmaking, photography, excision, and digital manipulation. Come see this exhibition and join in the dialogue these prominent artists have initiated.
Artists: Shanti Grumbine, Tatiana Istomina, Anna Elise Johnson, Joyce Kozloff, Dread Scott, Robin Tewes, Barbara Westermann.
A display of agitprop graphic art In the Black and White Gallery East complements the exhibition.
