We put our hands in the water, dieDAS - Design Akademie Saaleck, Naumburg/DE
June 15 – September 8, 2024

We put our hands in the water is the debut dieDAS art initiative. The exhibition is a cooperative project realized by the academy, curator Daniel Marzona, and the city of Naumburg, and intends to promote and spread the cultural and social values of the academy beyond Saaleck.

We put our hands in the water features work by artists Ulla von Brandenburg and Olaf Holzapfel.

Ulla von Brandenburg’s large-format fabric panels will transform the rooms into vibrant, stage-like settings reminiscent of dreamlike worlds. The artist describes her works as “spatial stagings” that bring together folklore, songs, theater, dance, and architecture to explore both the individual as well as the dynamics and functioning of community and society between chaos and regularity. In this way, von Brandenburg’s pieces formally examine aspects of the theatrical within the visual arts and conjure up delicate moments between utopia and reality, leaving the gap open for new perspectives and the previously unthought-of.
