Many visitors crowded the Edwin Scharff-Museum of Neu-Ulm, Friday evening when the donumenta exhibition from the Danube countries opened.

Regina Hellwig-Schmid solicited for more acknowledgment for the artists.

In presence of Dr. Beate Merk, Minister for European Affairs and regional cooperation of Bavaria, as well as Dr Helga Gutbrod, head of Museum, Regina Hellwig-Schmid introduced the pieces of art of the exhibition “14x14 – Survey of the Danube Region. Individual Views. Positions of Contemporary Art”.

 

At the centre of attention were, among others, the artists-duo Borsos Lőrinc (Hungarian) and Julian Palacz (Austrian media artist). As special guests, they showcased their works in their own rooms.

In addition to his famous work from 2010 „Algorithmic Search For Love“, Palacz displayed under the title „Surveillance Studies #1” a series of computer-generated-drawings, using the images of surveillance cameras.

The small-sized painting with botanic patterns from Borsos Lőrinc, displays a variety of flowers, which have been used (or became themselves) symbols of dictatorships, cataclysms and revolution. In an especially interesting relation, the paintings are show-cased together with plentiful material (from archives i.e.).

“Acknowledgment for artists in their home countries and across the borders, is one of the commitments of donumenta”, affirms Regina Hellwig-Schmid.
