EIN BRIEF AUS APPENRADE
Admission to KE In Copenhagen
(Kunstnernes Efterårsudstilling, “Den Frie”).
“Den Frie” is an artists’ association
that was founded in 1891 by Danish visual artists
in protest against the entry requirements
for the established Charlottenborg.
This makes the exhibition Denmark’s oldest association of artists.
The model was the French Salon des Refusés.
Admission to KP (Kunstnernes Påskeudstilling, “Århus Kunsthal”). The Artists’ Easter Exhibition, abbreviated KP, is a censored art exhibition that has been held annually in Aarhus since 1947. Alongside KP, there is also the Artists ‘Autumn Exhibition, abbreviated KE since 1915 in Copenhagen, and the Artists’ Summer Exhibition since 1973 annually in Tistrup near Varde.
AT A TRAFFIC LIGHT
for Art and Architecture in Essen, Germany”.
The Art and Architecture Forum was founded

(BDA / Essen District Group),
the Ruhrland Artists Association (RKB)
and the Working Group of Visual Artists (WBK)
with the aim of promoting dialogue between artists,
architects and citizens.
It is undisputed that chance is the driving force in all areas of life, without chance no life, without chance no intuition. Coincidence has, above all, become a subject in art where times were somehow uncertain. Hans Arp (1886-1966), for example, started his work series “Collages according to the laws of chance” shortly before the First World War. Arp tore Paper into strips and dropped them on the floor. He got fixed the result which was created by air resistance. The Frenchman Marcel Duchamp (1887 – 1968) dropped a meter-long pattern thread on the ground and immortalized the result. And Steffen Kindt puts on his work “A Coincidence on the Hook” random color strokes on some clothes, and and lets the hanging itself determine how the work of art takes shape.
