Heimat/Home: The 2019 Columbia–Kaiserslautern Artists Exchange

Programming includes the creation of a public artwork, lectures by UofSC faculty (SVAD's Dr. Chametzky) and community partners, an artist panel discussion, and a reception.

The Columbia World Affairs Council -- in partnership and support from the Columbia Development Corporation, if ART Gallery, Lewis + Clark Studio, Stormwater Studios, and the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany and Goethe-Institut in Washington, DC, -- is proud to present Heimat/Home, the latest in an artist exchange between Columbia and its sister city in Kaiserslautern, Germany.
The 2019 symposium, celebrating both the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall & the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus (the enormously influential art school in Germany), features talks, a panel discussion, performances & an exhibition by artists from both cities, and culminates in the unveiling of a collaborative public artwork created and installed on site at Stormwater Studios! Read more about the artist exchange and view the full program here:
In connection with the 30 year anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the nearly 20 year long exchange between artists in Columbia, SC and its German sister-city Kaiserslautern, Professor Peter Chametzky will deliver a lecture on German art since 1989, focusing on artists from diverse backgrounds as representatives and representors of an increasingly multicultural society:
"Since 1989: New Art in a Multicultural Germany," Wed. October 9, 7:00 PM, McMaster College, Room 239.
