Until May 28th you can visit the ifa funded exhibiton 'Informal City Park' at a&o Kunsthalle in Leipzig: Gabriela Kobus collaborated with a team of curators from Kairo called „StudioKhana“ and artists from Kairo, Leipzig and Dresden. Within the project they focused on working with the terms „amusement park in the slum“. In the combination of these terms Gabriela Kobus sees an unwieldy field that raises questions about absurdity, pathos and dubious ideas for charity. She brings up a connection of different realities of life via the need for pleasure to open up an experimental thinking space in which contradictions and questions as well as both subjects can be examined.
Based on current federal legislation, the a&o Kunsthalle is closed as of April 24, 2021. As soon as there is a safe opening perspective, we will inform you here, via our social media channels and the media. We ask for your understanding for the necessary measures. Stay healthy! We look forward to seeing you again! ... See MoreSee Less
