Invitation to the graduation exhibition of the Kunsthochschule

Vom 13. bis 17. Dezember 2023 findet in der documenta Halle die Examensausstellung der Absolvent:innen der Kunsthochschule Kassel statt. Dieses Jahr steht sie unter dem Titel Teilchen / Examen / Gezeiten.

Die Ausstellung versammelt Abschlussarbeiten aus den Bereichen Bildende Kunst, Visuelle Kommunikation und Produktdesign. Sie umfassen ein breites konzeptuelles und gestalterisches Spektrum, das von Malerei über Skulptur und Film bis hin zu Designarbeiten und multimedialen Installationen reicht.

The graduate exhibition has something ambivalent about it. As fixed as the annual date might be in the city’s cultural calendar, the exhibition also runs counter to everyday life at the Hochschule. Like the ebb and flow of the tide, EXAMEN marks a cycle with unforeseen dimensions. For the graduates it marks the symbolic end of their studies and a metamorphosis. There is a similarity to particles in quantum physics, simultaneously behaving as particles and as waves whose potential is still unexplored.

The exhibition is curated by documenta Institute research associate Mateo Chacón Pino. Commenting on his role, Mateo Chacón Pino says: "I am delighted to be working with the Kunsthochschule. With the exhibition, I would like to take a look at the artistic and creative careers of the graduates and think of the format of the final exhibition as a transition from training to professional practice. The participating artists and designers will help shape the cultural future of the city of Kassel, Germany and beyond."
