Art at Friedrichstraße

Current Exhibition – Siegfried Wameser/Karolin Nirschl – Kopf/Steinzeiten


Exhibitions are also held in the rooms at Friedrichstraße, which fit within the context of current research projects.

Anyone who has seen the photographs of the wounded soldiers in the volume "War to War" by the pacifist Ernst Friedrich, published in 1924, will not forget the images. They were also in front of the eyes of the photographer Siegfried Wameser when he made his studies on stones. Wameser's photos evoke associations with archaic masks, abstract art, but also with images of war, and allow the forces of nature to speak. The artist Karolin Nirschl's painted approaches to stones are a complementary adaptation of these photographs. In Nirschl's works, too, the supposed contrast between fragility and violence oscillates.

  • The focus of Siegfried Wameser's photographic work is on architecture and art photography.
  • The artist Karolin Nirschl studied art history at the LMU before taking up her studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.
Prof. Dr. Martin H. Geyer will give the introduction at the Vernissage on 11 May 2023.

Art at CAS presents works by artists from Munich and is supported by the UniGalerie of the LMU.
