"Production: Made in Germany III"

June 3 - September 3, 2017

The third edition of Made in Germany, which is collectively curated on a five-year-cycle by the three institutions, focuses on the conditions of producing art in Germany. The group exhibition pursues the questions of how geographical, political, and institutional structures as well as new technologies are creating important conditions for the production of art in the course of the digital turn. In an art landscape that, by international standards, continues to have a unique concentration of institutions (art academies and colleges, art associations, and museums), the German scene is a major international site for the production of and discourse on contemporary art.

The exhibition focuses on artistic positions that address production processes and examines the sites at which it is produced and presented. Besides processual approaches, by way of examples it investigates forms of production that direct the spotlight on network concepts. This becomes palpable based on collective approaches and time-based presentations in which the body and the social attain altered visibilities.

As participating institutions, the Schauspiel Hannover, the Festival Theaterformen, and the KunstFestSpiele are contributing the first time, supplementing the question of production and site with additional projects and thus highlighting the changing production conditions of theater and performance not only in spaces of visual art.
