Pilotenkueche Leipzig



”…You will come to a place where the streets are not marked. Some windows are lighted. But mostly they‘re darked. A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin! Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in? How much can you lose? How much can you win? …“

[„Oh, the Places You‘ll Go!“ by Dr. Seuss]

Round 17 of PILOTENKUECHE Arstist Residency is presenting the works of 6 painters and 1 installation artist. Coming from all over the world, you will find different statements of each artists very own perspective to every day life struggle and beauty. Without missing a certain kind of humor or self-irony, the works deal with questions about our current, sometimes very precarious way of living together in this one boat, called planet earth.

“The position that non-human animals occupy in our cultural imagination is proof for how easy it is to accept the lower status of some beings without even a second thought.”
