Art at Neumarkt

Clemens Behr Fassadenkonstruktion

Clemens Festival Mumbai, India.

Clemens Behr Mittlere Katastrophe: An expansive installation that picks up on given materiality and architecture and tries to copy it, but reproduces it in a deconstructivist and constructivist manner. Urban furniture/architecture is to be depicted in a way as after a constructivist traffic accident. An everyday humorous catastrophe.

Stella Geppert

Stella Geppert Land surveyors, also known as geodesists, take on the task of determining the size and shape of the earth figure. Stella Geppert uses the technique of land surveying at Neumarkt Osnabrück to capture the complexity of the site.

Four to six performers each explore the physical, spatial and communicative aspects of land surveying. What are the limits of communication? How do interpersonal contacts work in the vicinity and in the distance? How long does it take for glances to find each other? How do social spaces relate to the big whole – the earth body? In a choreographic surveying performance, the artist examines the emotional spaces between distant human measuring points.

Performance: Fr 21.9. 17 – 18 o’clock
Sat 22.9. 10 – 12 o’clock and 17 – 18 o’clock
Sun 23.9. 10 – 12 o’clock afterwards artist talk


Jakob&Manila_Wonderful World

Jakob&Manila Passers-by of Osnabrück’s Neumarkt are invited at an “information stand” by the artist couple Jakob&Manila to put on pink glasses and explore the surroundings. In a subsequent interview, the observations made by the participants during a walk in the surrounding area will be recorded. What unknown impressions were they able to gather? How does the visual change affect the perception of the surroundings? After the exploration of the fields, the participants are asked to describe what they saw. The collected original sounds serve the artists as the basis for a video work.

Action period: Saturday, 22.8. between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Katerina Kuznetcowa & Alexander Edisherov The artist couple weave colored ribbons into a geometric pattern in a barrier grid, suggesting the “encoded” problems of the Neumarkt: two different halves woven together by jagged lines become a coded signal image for the Neumarkt. The town was built on the border between the old and new towns and has retained its shape as a dividing line in the centre to this day. The wickerwork in the barriers stands for functional change and new images: The barrier becomes an information carrier. For the “Tangency 2018” project, the artist couple will weave at several barriers on Neumarkt for a week. At the end, the woven works will be carried in a procession from Neumarkt to the art space “hase29”, where they can be seen in the exhibition “so urban!

Foto: Elisabeth Lumme

Diana Sirianni Photographs of selected areas of a façade are alienated by the artist through digital manipulation. These pictorial motifs are applied to the corresponding facades in the form of large-format prints, thus creating an irritating effect. The apparent doubling of the photographic motif and the façade results in optical shifts that strain the eye and tempt us to take a closer look. Diana Sirianni creates a spatial photo collage that seems like a stage on which she moves together with passers-by. On two days Diana Sirianni comes to talk with passers-by and invites them to become part of her artistic intervention.

Period of action: Sa 22.9. 10 – 13.30 Uhr Mo 24.9. 10 – 13.30 Uhr


Elisabeth Windisch – Intervention am Neumarkt o.T: “Wandbild”

Elisabeth Windisch The Neumarkt is visually marked by asphalted surfaces, barriers and temporary guidance systems that have become permanent. In the city centre, which seems chaotic due to construction sites, the artist builds a wall of approx. 3 m height and 9 m length over several days with safety beacons. The order and colourfulness of the elements on the one hand seems like an irritating barrier between pedestrian area and traffic area on the other hand, an unusual pattern attracts the attention of passers-by. Passers-by are invited to rebuild individual elements and thus create new three-dimensional patterns.
