Das Wien der Ära Metternich mag man schwerlich als himmlisch bezeichnen, auch das recht ärmliche Leben des 20-jährigen Hilfsschullehrers Franz Schubert kaum, der im Jahr 1817 dem Schuldienst dank eines einjährigen Stipendiums entkommt (er wird ihn nie wieder aufnehmen); doch welch Aussichten auf freies, ungestörtes Komponierenkönnen tun sich dem Freizeit-Bratschisten in diesem Jahr endlich auf! Ein Schaffensrausch ist die Folge: Allein zwischen Mai und August entstehen sieben Klaviersonaten, und ebenso das Streichtrio D 581 bringt Schubert in diesem Jahr zu Papier. Wie erhebend auch ist der Gestalt annehmende Plan, das Elternhaus zu verlassen, wie erfreulich der Blick voraus aufs weinselige WG-Leben bei seinem Freund Schober… Wie vergnüglich sind die häuslichen Kammermusiken, bei denen Schuberts neue Schöpfungen dem “Praxistest” unterzogen werden. Das Streichtrio wird so noch einmal etwas umgearbeitet, eine inkommode Passage wird geglättet, eine andere zugespitzt, hier fällt ein Auftakt weg, dort wird eine Geste unterstrichen – das Wesentliche bleibt: Die spielerische Freude der Ecksätze, die trotz einiger düsterer Ahnungen vertrauensselige Himmelsruhe des Andante, das charmante Augenzwinkern des Menuetts… Wie friedlich ist dies Leben.

Recording of Conversation #1 with Ms. Noemi Givon

At Circle1’s Conversation #1 on 19.3.2018 Ms. Noemi Givon discussed the exhibition “Modern Artists” from 1926 at Jerusalem’s David Tower that was organized by the students of the Bezalel Academy. They rebelled against the school and against the making of provincial art.
“Twice immigrants” to Israel they returned towards the establishment of the state, participated for the first time in the newly built Israeli pavilion at the Venice Biennale as an art movement established under the title “New Horizons”.
Among the points of discussion was their ethics of disconnecting Zionism and politics from art, the need to find an universal language and the cultural strategy of the autonomic, secular art making in Israel.

This exhibition aims at setting up a brief historiography of the body as it is perceived, represented and manifested by Israeli artists from the 1950s until today. On view are works from some of Israel’s most known artists together with a selection of contemporary Israeli artists residing in Berlin. The works of Moshe Kupferman (1926 – 2003) and Lea Nikel (1918 – 2005) are our starting point, chronologically. Like many of their contemporaries they were engaged in an abstract discourse avoiding any direct representation. Kupferman’s paintings are an on-going process of marking and erasing, thus constructing a timespace machine whose generator and scale is the basic move of the painter’s hand. In Nikel’s case the body is transfigured into abstract forms. Possible figures, emotions and inner situations are shaped into colors and spatial relationships.
