Work by Daniel von Sturmer is included in 'Contact, Artists from Aotearoa/New Zealand' at Frankfurter Kunstverein.
Exhibition dates: 5 October – 25 November, 2012
The Frankfurter Kunstverein pres- ents the group exhibition CONTACT. ARTISTS FROM AOTEAROA/NEW ZEALAND on the occasion of New Zealand’s role as guest of honor at the 2012 Frankfurt Book Fair. The title originates from a 1974 performance by Jim Allen in the Auckland Art Gallery, which was centered
on the expanded notion of “contact” as a mental, physical, and social interrelationship and thus exempli- fies a period in which New Zealand artists explored different paths for dealing with their history and cultural context. The word “contact” refers to the network of relation- ships between the two dominant ethnic groups in bicultural Aotearoa/ New Zealand: the indigenous popu- lation of the Māori and the white settlers, “Pakeha”.
The exhibition at the Frankfurter Kunstverein brings together paint- ings, photographs, films, and instal- lations by 25 New Zealand artists, thus offering a complex picture of art production in Aoteaora/New Zealand over the past 40 years.
