The process which determines and forms works of art, time and again, becomes the subject of the work of artists. The group show in the summer of 2016 brings together 16 international perspectives that focus on this process and the changes it stimulates.

The exhibition seeks to demonstrate the varied strategies artists employ when dealing with the same thematic question. Thus, some works not only demand diligence and patience, but also condition a partial change in the entire life of an artist. This is particularly true, when artists, for example, dedicate their efforts to a single activity for years. Even if only a single object emerges from such a “life’s work”, it reveals a great deal about the time that was spent in its development and creation. In addition, pieces of a completely different structure will be shown, works that, over the course of the show, will reveal visible and tangible changes: transformation in this context could be a chemical reaction or a process of growth. In other parts of the show, artists will turn into actors, who – as part of a performance – make changes on a setting established by them in order to make a before-and-after-effect visible.

PROCESS, PERFORMANCE, PRESENCE is an exhibition that in its course will re-invent itself over and again. This will not only challenge the work of art as a final product, but it will once more emphasize the audience as an important and invaluable vis-à-vis. Visitors to the exhibition are invited to engage themselves in this dialogue, which at all times during the visit to the exhibition presents itself as a unique and irretrievable snapshot of the very exhibition.

This exhibition, which opens with the summer festival on 10 June 2016, will be presented for the first time in all sites of the Kunstverein Braunschweig: Villa Salve Hospes and Remise, courtyard and garden.
