Multimedia art project with artists from Japan and Germany
24.04.2008 - 18.05.2008 / Kunsthalle Faust

Good – good, or: so far, so good; a phrase – if reflected in its literal sense where distance is accompanied with goodness– in which the distance Hanover – Japan ultimately amounts to a “very far” or “good, good”. And this is understood by the Japanese too since they have adopted this adjective of German neologism with an almost similar meaning.

Good, therefore a word that builds a bridge between Asia and Europe. Each has its own and both are using it. Good, good – a phrase that could describe the status quo of a common prevailing mood and which is already asking for the future. Artistically it is not only about the implementation of esthetic ideas but about visionary and future drafts, meaning, similarities and differences.

Sven Giesmann: do it

Under these thematic brackets, however, the Kunsthalle Faust – in co-operation with the cultural office of the provincial capital of Hanover – presents six artists from Japan and four national artists from the Lower Saxony region and Berlin. On the occasion of the city partnership between Hannover and Hiroshima the Kunsthalle Faust presents exhibits which refer on each other and enter with their interactive character a dialog with the public. The second main focus is build by the presence of the art works on the Messegelände which provide a rather performative event character.
