Longing – ideal world
The longing for an ideal world moves people, especially in times of personal and social shocks and challenges. On September 15, 2023 at 7 p.m., the exhibition on the topic "Longing - ideal world" will open in the Kunstraum Backstube. As part of the vernissage, the artists introduce themselves to one another and take the audience into the creation of the individual works. Ulrike E Sticher will paint live and show part I of her performance "Longing - ideal world".
But what is the longing for an ideal world all about? Is the longing for an ideal world a phantom; just an idea that gives hope, combined with the desire to be able to experience it in the now and today? Is this longing something that drives people internally to search in order to find and is it perhaps a deep, never-satisfied need of people in the hunt for harmony and peace? What does a perfect world mean? What does it look like and where can we find it? Can we create one or will it remain just a sweet dream?
