Visiting Artist Studio Lecture: Kerstin Brätsch
Visiting Artist Studio UMPRUM organizes on-line lecture by German visual artist Kerstin Brätsch.
Thursday March 30th 2023 at 1 pm
Kerstin Brätsch’s practice migrates around painting, oscillating between a conceptual analysis of the medium and a devotion to painterly processes. To question the agency of painting and engage with its expanded field, she invites artisanal practices (such as stained glass, paper marbling, and stucco marmo) and collaborative projects into the equation of painting history, interrogating subjectivity and authorship, and moving from the personal to the collective.
In 2007 she founded DAS INSTITUT with Adele Röder, and since 2010 she has been working with Debo Eilers under the moniker KAYA as well as conjointly with friends, colleagues, and artisans.
Her works have been featured in solo projects at the Fridericianum Kassel (2023), Ludwigforum Aachen ( 2022), Luma Foundation Arles (2021), Museum of Modern Art in New York (2019), the Fondazione Memmo in Rome (2018), and the Museum Brandhorst in Munich (2017). She has participated in major group exhibitions such as the 59th Venice biennial (2022) and at Camden Arts Center London (2020), the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg (2020), and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam (2019).
