KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art
Am Sudhaus 3, 12053 Berlin
With the group exhibition How beautiful you are!, the Kosmetiksalon Babette will be a guest for two weeks in the Maschinenhaus M0 of the KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art. In various forms of artistic expression, the exhibition examines the concept of beauty in the art world and directs its focus towards art and artists in equal measure.
How beautiful you are! does not treat beauty as an evaluative category but instead takes the term as the point of departure for experiments, commenting upon it from various perspectives: architectural designs by AAS Gonzalez Haase, sportswear by Sandra Dresp and a promotional by Sorgen International. Included in the painterly positions are works by Martin Eder, Norbert Bisky, Jens Heller and Frank Nitsche, among others. Multiple-media works by Nik Nowak and Jonny Star encounter body-related, performative works by Yvon Chabrovski and Kirstin Burckhardt as well as sculptural works by Vera Kox and Albert Weis. In accordance with the tradition of the legendary Bar Babette, How beautiful you are! envisions itself as a network exhibition in which a multiplicity of artistic positions gives rise to the characteristic energetic charge.
