Registration is closed

Friday, April 22 – 6:00-9:00pm

DANK Treffpunkt gallery at DANK Haus, 4740 N. Western Ave.

(No RSVP required)

German artist Beate Axmann’s concept "Sicht.Verrückt" translates roughly to gaze, shifted. It is a directive to look not once, not twice, but thrice, even four times. In today's atmosphere of rising extremism and polemics (in Germany and abroad), it is critical to shift one’s gaze––to look at issues from multiple angles. Sichtverrückt is the overarching theme that Beate Axmann has used for the whole of her artistic work since 2018.

Axmann is from the Black Forest region of Germany and works in acrylic paint on canvas, paper, and wood as well as ink on paper. Her subjects include people (especially women), nature, the Black Forest, and the continuum of human cultures that she greets on her travels. Collaboration and cooperation with others are centrally important to Axmann.

Axmann's show will run through May 20, and will include public programs such as:

  • Panel discussion with Joanna Pinsky of Art Encounter
  • 2 live performances in which Axmann will create collaborative paintings with Joanna Pinsky and Sergio Gomez
  • All-ages art workshops (which Axmann will lead, speaking German!) in which you will create 1 or 2 experimental collages
