From September 30 to November 26, 2023, the Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt will present recent works by 15 Berlin-based, international women* artists at galerie weisser elefant. With Goldrausch 2023 – on the edge of, the professionalization programme presents the final exhibition of its 33rd year. The group exhibition is a cooperation with the Department of Art, Culture and History of the Berlin-Mitte district and is curated by Laure Catugier and Hannah Kruse.
Under the title Goldrausch 2023 – on the edge of the 15 participants of the Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt present excerpts from their current production. Analogue experimental film, video and sound installations, conceptual photography, painting, tapestries, performance, and sculptures.
In their works, the artists negotiate feminist perspectives on history and popular culture, changes in our environment in the age of the Anthropocene, and multi-perspectival narratives of everyday rituals and economics. Conceptually, they explore media and content boundaries – edges – and reveal in-between spaces and transformation processes. Along these edges, the artists’ works invite reflection: On social or ecological changes, artistic genres and materials. In this way, the exhibition Goldrausch 2023 – on the edge of encourages us to question existing systems and to develop possibilities for transformation.
As a one-year professionalization course, the Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt promotes outstanding artistic positions by women*. During the course, the participants focus on their professional development in a supportive community and, at the same time, show their work across different platforms to the public. Since 1989, this renowned professional development project – one of a kind in Germany – has been supporting women* artists in opening up their individual career paths and presenting their work to a wide-ranging audience.
The exhibition is curated by Laure Catugier (Goldrausch alumna 2017) and Hannah Kruse.
