Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die (Malachy McCourt).
From 19 May to 30 August 2020, KUNST MERAN MERANO ARTE is hosting the show RESENTMENT, analysing an emotional state that characterises the present era like few others.
Taking different approaches and perspectives, thirteen international contemporary artists – Teodora Axente, Francesca Grilli, Massimo Grimaldi, Klara Lidén, Christian Niccoli, Riccardo Previdi, Liesl Raff, Monika Sosnowska, Barbara Tavella, Wolfgang Tillmans, Beatrice Volpi, Raul Walch and Gernot Wieland – will address this issue.
The exhibition, curated by Christiane Rekade, is the offspring of an interdisciplinary collaboration between KUNST MERAN MERANO ARTE, the Conductus association and string ensemble, and the Alpha Beta publishing house. Starting from a reflection on the deepest meaning of resentment, all three investigate it from a literary, musical and artistic point of view, offering a series of events and initiatives.
New director at the Kunsthaus Meran
Martina Oberprantacher will be the future director of the Merano Kunsthaus
The Kunstverein KUNST MERAN MERANO ARTE is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2021. Since its foundation in 1996, Herta Wolf Torggler has been leading the exhibition and mediation work with great success. Originally located in the Rafflgalerie on Pfarrplatz and since 2001 in the Kunsthaus under the Arcades, Herta Wolf Torggler has worked continuously and successfully in collaboration with Ursula Schnitzer, numerous curators and many employees.
In summer 2019, Herta Wolf Torggler and the association's board had many discussions with competent persons who had applied for the responsible director's job.
Martina Oberprantacher has convinced the board with her structured and clear ideas about the future management of the Kunsthaus Meran. It was quickly agreed that, in addition to organizational talent, international experience and the ability to work in a team, she brings a lot of enthusiasm and confidence for the new challenge.
