Artur Zmiewski

Artur Żmijewski – Self-portrait

Workshop und Filmproduktion

10.06.13 until further notice

Following an exhibition project with works by the Polish artist Artur Żmijewski in 2012, in which the artist confronted us with the otherness of people with different disabilities, a very special workshop took place at the Ludwig Forum from June 10 to 15, 2013: Under the direction of Artur Zmijewski, people with and without disabilities from the neighborhood of the Ludwig Forum designed a sculpture ensemble together.

Negative molds were dug from outlines of individual participants, which were then filled with concrete. The erected figures are now standing in the garden of the museum. From dealing with the question “What is a portrait?” a large relief picture continued to result, which found its starting point in Anselm Kiefer’s “Wege 2” (1977) and can be seen next to Kiefer’s work in the museum.

The workshop was accompanied by a film team Żmijewskis, which is now working on a new film that not only documents the project, but also, like many of the artist’s works, deals with disability in our society.

We would like to thank Haus Wiesental (Lebenshilfe Aachen) for the intensive cooperation.
