Exhibition showing works by young artists from Bonn, the Rhein-Sieg-Kreis, Kreis Ahrweiler and Rhein-Erft-Kreis
04. Jun 2016 – 31. Jul 2016
In keeping with "Galerie Dada", this year's theme at Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck, the 15-to-19-year-old competitors for the 19th Youth Art Prize awarded by the BBK Bonn, Rhein-Sieg e.V. all grappled with Dadaism and its influence on current trends in art. The social and political conditions that served as the breeding ground for Dadism are still highly relevant even today. Such artistic means of expression as graffiti or rap have their roots in Dadaism, and a sizeable portion of today's contemporary artwork would not have been conceivable without these ideas having been formulated in 1916. The results selected from a great deal more than 130 young artists afford a very young view to Dada that ranges from the small-format drawings via collages and a stop-motion film up to large-format objects carried out with various techniques and which make use of various possibilities of expression.
