Jan-Hendrik Pelz & Johanna Mangold at Kunstmuseum Stuttgart

Solo Exhibition "Magic Potion" (Szenefenster)

From October, the "Szenefenster" exhibition format at the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart shows a project by Jan-Hendrik Pelz (*1984 in Filderstadt) and Johanna Mangold (*1984 in Kempten) The artist duo brewed a magic potion for the installation, the ingestion of which makes them "the best artists in the world". For this, they created a list of exquisite ingredients, whose research and procurement is documented in 24 videos. With their work, Mangold and Pelz question the dubious mechanisms of a fiercely competitive art business and comment with a wink on the striving for success and the pressure of competition in contemporary art.

In the "Szenefenster" format, Kunstmuseum Stuttgart shows acquisitions that were realised for the city's art collection by the Fine Arts Department of the Stuttgart Cultural Office in close exchange with Kunstmuseum Stuttgart.

In September 2021, the Tarabya Cultural Academy in cooperation with Kunstraum Kreuzberg / Bethanien will open the doors to its eight-week festival. The occasion is the tenth anniversary of the artist residency on the Bosporus. Founded as an initiative of the German Bundestag in 2011, over 100 artists from various disciplines have since lived and worked in Istanbul. Run by the German Foreign Office and the Goethe-Institut, the artists' residence opens up new perspectives, creates cross-border encounters and sustainable 2020 experiences of cultural exchange between Turkey and Germany. The festival centre is the Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien, where an exhibition of works created and inspired in Istanbul by artists of the Kulturakademie will be shown for eight weeks. In addition, a multidisciplinary programme is planned in Berlin, Istanbul and other cities nationwide in cooperation with various partner institutions - from debates and concerts to performances and open-air cinema in public spaces. Educational and outreach programmes with schools and neighbourhood initiatives are another part of the festival. In addition, there will be digital programme modules to make the festival accessible to an even wider public - also in Turkey and nationwide. The festival is supported by Stiftung Mercator. Further information on the Tarabya Cultural Academy can be found at :

The exhibition was curated by Stéphane Bauer (director of Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien), Pia Entenmann (curatorial director of Kulturakademie Tarabya), Çağla İlk (director of Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden) and Susanne Weiß (curator, director of IfA Galerie Berlin).

The Kulturakademie Tarabya is run by the German Embassy Ankara, the Goethe-Institut Istanbul bears curatorial responsibility.

16. Art Prize of Volks- und Raffeisen-Bank:

Jan-Hendrik Pelz Präsentiert Paula Pelz

Jan-Hendrik Pelz receives this year the VR-Bank art prize for the versatility of artistic media and the high expressiveness of his work. The prize will be presented in the Art Museum Prediger from 31 July to 1 November in the exhibition "Jan-Hendrik Pelz. Presents Paula Pelz", which gives an idea of the 36-year-old artist's painterly work. At the centre of the show is the portrait series "every-day-people", created in 2019: it comprises 365 paintings in the same format – one painting stands for one day – and can be seen in its entirety for the first time ever. In addition, the exhibition shows the installative work "2020 portraits", which was conceived especially for the gallery space: twenty-one portraits currently being created combine painting and object art and transform the face into the over-dimensional.
