16th – 18th October 2020,
Nobel Peace Center (square), Oslo
Die Mauer – der vertikale Horizont (1989-2014)
by Rotraut Pape, and New Political Thoughts (2020) by Teresa Dillon
The German Embassy in Norway invited Art Republic to curate an art installation for Oslo`s public space on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the reunification of Germany, and the European presidency, which Germany currently holds. Art Republic seized the opportunity to mark these two important topics – Reunification and Europe, by presenting the works by German artist Rotraut Pape, and Irish artist and writer Teresa Dillon. The project is a celebration of peace and reunification, and also a response to Europe's current state-of-play, its shifting borders, tensions and global position.
The project was curated by Daniela Arriado and located outside the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo. Commissioned by the German Embassy in Norway, and supported by Goethe institute and Oslo Municipality.
