Performance/Konzept: Nicole Wendel und Jan Burkhardt, Tafeln, Stäbe, Papier, Berlin 2022

Following the traces of times to decipher them.
Listening to the inaudible, making it audible.
Weaves, emotional geometries unfold. Being connected.
Movements grow deep into the roots to the outermost leaf. 

_a joyful wave.

Spaces shape our bodies and bodies shape space. The performance (N)ON SITE BODIES_DUETT developed by Nicole Wendel and Jan Burkhardt for the Orangery of Schloss Charlottenburg comes from a series of diverse approaches to space in which movement can also be read as drawing. The individual scale becomes visible in the context of physical, psychic and architectural space through various materials and gives rise to emotional geometries. Panels, rods and paper become fields of relationship, reflection and rearrangement. They also connect the bodies in their sonority with the visibility and invisibility of the world. 

Nicole Wendel and Jan Burkhardt have worked together in numerous and very different contexts in recent years. Jan Burkhardt is a dancer and choreographer. He has been one of the permanent teaching staff at the ZZT Cologne since 2015. He is centrally concerned with questions of sharing and perception as the foundation of choreographic processes. Nicole Wendel’s artistic roots are in drawing, and for many years she has also been concerned with the intelligence of the body and performative possibilities of allowing form and content to play with each other. Thus, in the interdisciplinary encounters, movements as drawing, sound as resonance of the bodies in space and abrasion as a lasting trace of the otherwise ephemeral event are always interwoven.

No one survives a real conversation is a collaborative exhibition by Nicole Wendel and Kirstin Burckhardt exploring the essence of friendship. Using their own friendship as artistic material itself, the artists have co-created all exhibited works out of their body based practices. Next to drawings and video, guests are invited to participate in performative encounters.

Nicole Wendel receives the Valerie and Prof. Kurt M. Schulz-Schönhausen SPONSORSHIP AWARD 2022 

The award, endowed with 10,000 euros, recognises outstanding artistic achievement in the field of graphic art or painting and was awarded by the Stiftung Kunstfonds for the fifth time. This year’s award winner is the artist Nicole Wendel, who explores the connection between body perception and artistic expression in her drawings. 

Hearing, smelling, feeling and conscious breathing are all central components for Nicole Wendel, which she incorporates into her works in addition to visual spatial perception. An important part of her artistic work is the goal of not being able to grasp and reproduce the world around her solely through her intellect, but by means of all the senses through an intuitive bodily intelligence. Wendel does not interpret the taking in of sensory impressions as a passive act, but as a necessary basis for an active creative process. From the reading of the traces, expressive large- and small-format drawings emerge, mostly in black and white, which in earlier works also depicted landscapes and today remain largely abstractly spatial. Drawing performances, filmic works and installations are also part of her oeuvre. 

Currently, several of Wendel’s works are presented in the exhibition Gulliver’s Sketchbook, which can be seen at the KAI10 ARTHENA FOUNDATION in Düsseldorf until 26 June 2022. As part of the Long Night of Museums, she will perform a drawing performance there on 11 June 2022 in collaboration with choreographer Jan Burkhardt and his students from the Cologne University of Music and Dance. Wendel’s works can also be seen in the group exhibition ÜBER DIE ZEICHNUNG HINAUS at ZAK / Zentrum für Aktuelle Kunst (Zitadelle Spandau) from 7 May to 21 August 2022. 

Nicole Wendel, born in Karlsruhe in 1975, studied at the Berlin University of the Arts from 1997 to 2004. She was a master student of Professor Leiko Ikemura in 2004. She lives and works in Berlin.  

The prize is named after the Schulz-Schönhausen couple. Prof. Kurt M. Schulz-Schönhausen (1922-1999) was a German painter and graphic artist who taught at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Offenbach from 1957. His artistic estate is in the artist archive of the Stiftung Kunstfonds. Valerie Schulz-Schönhausen was committed to art foundations throughout her life. As a journalist, she reported for Deutschlandfunk on artists‘ colonies in Europe, among other things. She endows the „Valerie and Prof. Kurt M. Schulz-Schönhausen Award“ and has entrusted the Stiftung Kunstfonds with the award. The prizewinner is selected annually from the scholarship applications received by the Stiftung Kunstfonds and complements the Foundation’s sponsorship programme. Dr Gabriele Koschatzky was involved in the selection process in an advisory capacity; the jury consisted of the members of the Kunstfonds scholarship jury.

Beyond Drawing shows the abundance of current drawing positions in Berlin: exuberant pictorial narrative and strict reduction, figuration and abstraction, documentation and site inspection, illusion and its suspension, the microscopic and the generous, drawing as performance, in books, in space or in animated film. Whether on paper or in combination with other media, drawing goes beyond itself and crosses borders.

The bilingual exhibition catalogue will be published in June 2022.

Kurator: Ludwig Seyfarth

Die Gruppenausstellung Gulliver’s Sketchbook nimmt die Besucher*innen in KAI 10 | ARTHENA FOUNDATION auf eine imaginäre Reise mit, die der Neugier und der Fantasie des Zeichenstifts folgt. Dieser dringt in mikroskopische Welten ein oder zeichnet das Körperinnere nach, verfolgt minutiös die Oberflächen kleiner oder größerer Gegenstände und nimmt es sogar mit den Dimensionen des Weltalls auf. Sich auf den 1726 erschienenen Roman Gulliver’s Travels von Jonathan Swift beziehend, wird ein Bogen vom zeichnerischen Festhalten der Außenwelt über filigrane geometrische Konstruktionen oder Spuren und Abdrücke des Körpers bis hin zum freien und spielerischen Entwurf surrealer Szenarien und Welten gespannt. Die Ausstellung rückt dabei insbesondere in den Fokus, wie sich die körperliche Aktivität des Zeichnens zu physisch vorhandenen oder imaginierten Größendimensionen verhält, auch mit einem Blick auf kulturhistorische Veränderungen.

Ohne die zeichnende Hand war es bis ins 19. Jahrhundert hinein nicht möglich, die Eindrücke und Beobachtungen, die man auf Reisen und anderswo machte, bildlich festzuhalten. Inzwischen reicht dafür der Auslöser einer Kamera, oft nur noch der des Smartphones. Doch einfach einen Stift in die Hand zu nehmen und etwas aufs Papier zu bringen, auch als Koordination von Auge, Körper und Hand, hat trotz aller technischer Aufrüstungen als unhintergehbarer Ursprung des Zeichnens seine Faszinationskraft nicht verloren. Gulliver’s Sketchbook macht dies an exemplarischen Beispielen deutlich und führt die Vielfalt des Zeichnens in der heutigen Kunst vor AugenGrößenverhältnisse stellen sich dabei heute in der globalisierten und vernetzten Welt anders dar als im 18. Jahrhundert. Reale Maßstäbe scheinen angesichts all dessen, was virtuell simuliert und in Echtzeit um die Welt gesendet werden kann, immer unwichtiger geworden zu sein. Und das Entwerfen virtueller Objekte oder Räume findet meist jenseits des Maßstabes statt, den der eigene Körper bildet. Dieser bleibt jedoch stets präsent, wenn unmittelbar auf Papier oder einem anderen Material gezeichnet wird. So ist das Zeichnen auch ein bewusster Verzicht auf technischen Aufwand und seine zeitliche Dauer wird zum Innehalten im Fluss der ständig auf uns einprasselnden Bilder. Schließlich stellt die Ausstellung auch die Frage danach, wie der Zeichenprozess zum Mittel der zwischenmenschlichen Kommunikation werden kann, auch über Distanzen hinweg.

A Drawing Performance with Ruth Wiesenfeld and Nicole Wendel 

Nicole Wendel understands her drawing both as an act of setting traces and as a translation of intense perceptions of her body in relation. Forms of „Deep Listening“ thereby constitute her process of composition and become visible as a performative notation. Ruth Wiesenfeld’s drawings emerge as gestural explorations of sonic ideas; often they are preparatory works for music compositions.

In their first collaborative performance, Wendel and Wiesenfeld focus on the tactile and auditory aspects of drawing. Together they will explore methods of entering into dialogue with each other through the sound evoked by the drawing gesture.

SCOTTY is pleased to present LifeLinien, an exhibition organized by Tiger Strikes Asteroid Chicago that brings into conversation artists from Chicago and Berlin as part of Meanwhile, We Are Here, the first iteration of a two-part, cross-cultural exchange between the US Tiger Strikes Asteroid network and various artist-run spaces in Berlin including HAUNT/Frontviews, Horse & Pony, HilbertRaum, Schau Fenster, SCOTTY, Xanadu, and nationalmuseum.

In LifeLinien, works by Carris Adams, Yesenia Bello, Knut Eckstein, Óscar González Díaz, Unyimeabasi Udoh, and Nicole Wendel take their cues from signs and signals, both physical as well as perceived, involving the body, landscape, commerce, and structures of power. Working with various types of signs ranging from those found in advertisements and on packaged goods to those that affect our ability tonavigate space and place as well as others meant for protest, each artist investigates and reflects on the entangled systems that underlie the fabric of everyday experience, issuing a call to question, resist, and transform existing structures.

Inclusive Break – A Time Beside Many Others

An introduction on the exhibition by Oliver Hartmann (Head of the Department of Culture and Education of the German Consulate General Shanghai)
Let’s reverse time back to 3pm in Shanghai and 8am in Berlin on November 8, 2020. A public pop-up event under the title Inclusive Break took place simultaneously at Liu Haisu Art Museum and HAUNT Art Space. At both locations visitors could find an identical collection of 66 white plastic boxes building a rectangular field on the ground. Some of the boxes were empty while others were filled with objects such as plants, tinfoil, gauze, porcelain clay, transparent soap and sponge. Visitors could not only move the boxes but also use the materials and tools inside. And their moves and actions were to be captured by the lens of a video camera and transmitted live to the other location, forming a theatre of objects and time map built collectively by men and objects under the guidance of time.

Now a year later. From December 3 to 26, 2021, an artistic chapter co-choreographed by China and Germany will open once again at Liu Haisu Art Museum. After two years of preparation, the exhibition under the title of Inclusive Break – A Time Beside Many Others – a longer and more extensive version of the pop-up event – co-organized by Liu Haisu Art Museum and the Department of Culture and Education of the German Consulate General Shanghai will be on view for nearly a month-long period. The exhibition will feature six artists including Kang Qing, Gao Shan and Zhou Yinchen from China and Stella Geppert, Nicole Wendel and Saskia Wendland from Germany. Collectively they present the audience in Shanghai nearly 100 pieces of work from 33 groups, including action painting, sculptural installation, performance video, drawing and archival material.

Losito Kunstpreises 2021

I am pleased to invite you to the award ceremony and nominees‘ exhibition of the Losito Art Prize 2021 – ZEITENWENDE. The opening will take place next Friday, 29 October, at 7.30 pm in the Löwenpalais Lounge of the Starke Foundation, Koenigsallee 30-32 in 14193 Berlin.The award ceremony will take place under 3G rules. Prior registration can be made at the following email address: lositokunstpreis@lkzf.de // www.lkzf.de


Am 28. und 29.08.2021 findet in der ehemaligen Werkhalle der Gießerei in Chemnitz das Projekt W E C H S E L R A U M statt. Es zeigt das zeitgenössische künstlerische Potential von Kohle an einem historischen Industriestandort. Die Ausstellung lebt von der Gemeinschaft von Aufführenden und ihrem Publikum. Visuell fragmentarisch, verdichten sich verschiedenen Ebenen von Wahrnehmung, Kommunikation, Räumlichkeit und Zeitlichkeit zu einem neuen Ganzen. 

Der Begriff W E C H S E L R A U M bezeichnet bei einem Staffellauf den Bereich, in dem der Stab die Hand wechselt. Ausgangspunkt der Ausstellung ist eine installative Raumzeichnung aus Kohle der Künstlerin Ulrike Mohr, welche alle zwei Stunden durch die beteiligten Künstler*innen eine weitere Transformation erfährt. Die Ausstellung befindet sich über den gesamten Zeitraum in einem performativen Prozess, den die Besucher*innen vor Ort oder im Livestream verfolgen können. Die frei schwebende Raumzeichnung sowie alle weiteren Interventionen der Künstler*innen beziehen sich inhaltlich und formal auf den Ort, der ohne Kohle nicht denkbar wäre.
On 28. and 29.08.2021 the project W E C H S E L R A U M will take place in a former foundry in Chemnitz. It shows the contemporary artistic potential of (char)coal at a historic industrial site. The exhibition lives from the community of performers and their audience. Visually fragmentary, different levels of perception, communication, spatiality and temporality condense into a new whole. 

In a relay race, the term W E C H S E L R A U M refers to the area in which the baton changes hands. The starting point of the exhibition is an installative spatial drawing made of charcoal by the artist Ulrike Mohr, which undergoes a further transformation every two hours by the participating artists*. The exhibition is in a performative process throughout the entire period, which visitors can follow on site or via livestream. The free-floating spatial drawing as well as all other interventions by the artists refer in terms of content and form to the location, which would be inconceivable without coal.

KUNST KANN. Einblicke in zeitgenössische künstlerische Haltungen

12 Künstlerpositionen aus bildender, darstellender Kunst, Musik, Literatur (LI, DE, AT, IT) 
Vermittlungs- und Lernplattform mit zwölf künstlerischen Positionen11.08.2020 bis 11.10.2020

Vierzehn eingeladene Künstler*innen aus der bildenden und darstellenden Kunst, Musik und Literatur aus Liechtenstein, Deutschland, Österreich und Südtirol bringen ihre künstlerischen Prozesse in einer Ausstellung zum Ausdruck und machen diese für ein breites Publikum zugänglich. 

In diesen Prozessen werden künstlerische Eigenschaften, Fähigkeiten und Haltungen erkennbar, die in einem Lernparcours erprobt werden können. Durch diese Erfahrung bekommen Interessierte Einblicke, wie KünstlerInnen an ihre Arbeit herangehen, wie sie denken und handeln, wie sie das Neue finden, wie sie mit Unsicherheit, Überraschung, Krisen und Momente des Scheiterns umgehen.  

Damit bekommen sie Denkanstösse, wie sie um die Ecke denken und so ihren persönlichen Handlungsspielraum erweitern können.   

Entwickelt wird die Plattform von Kubus Kulturvermittlung, Balzers/LI; Haus am Lützowplatz, Berlin/DE; Bildungshaus St. Hippolyt, St. Pölten/AT; Südtiroler Landesmuseum für Kultur- und Landesgeschichte Schloss Tirol, Dorf Tirol/IT. 

Sie wird in Vaduz, Berlin, St. Pölten und Dorf Tirol gezeigt.

A performative project for the Day of the Open Monument 2020 in Dresden by Nicole Wendel

Remembrance becomes passion when it fights against the time that the past delivers the oblivion. (Byung-Chul Han, from: Scent of Time)

What and how much do we remember? How can the absent unfold anew in reading and creating a trace? What is its sound? Where are the borders and where is the transition? Where is the perception of what we are always connected with: inside and outside, mass and space, in and out, giving and receiving.

On the occasion of the Open Monument Day on Sunday, September 13, 2020, the performance „4/4“ will be performed in the cabinet of the Zentralwerk Dresden, developed and choreographed by the Berlin artist Nicole Wendel.

Three performers and a cameraman will listen to the four directions; in the resonance space of time and place. The basic elements used in the performance, consisting of four panels and four stones, refer in their composition and proportion both to the existing spatial architecture and to the human body. Elementary forms of movement, such as walking, carrying, pushing, pulling and the focus on the spatial experience of transition and connection allow the performance to be experienced as a transformational and poetic-playful ritual in its relation to the eventful history of this place.

Due to current regulations, the performance will not be open to the public. Nicole Wendel has adapted her choreography to the accompaniment of the event by a cameraman, whose cinematic work is an integral part of the work. Pictures from a stationary camera will additionally make the spatial dimension of the event tangible.

The performance will be performed on September 13th at 12:00a.m. and will be broadcast live from the exhibition space to the outside area of the Zentralwerk. Afterwards, a recording will be shown every hour. The traces of the performance will remain as a spatial installation and be accessible.

Embodied Lines 2019

Embodied Lines

Uli Kürner (D/NL) | Liesje van den Berk (NL) | Nicole Wendel (D) | Katrina Brown (UK)
The group exhibition Embodied Lines brings together drawings in which the experience of the physical body is central. How can a physical action or physical sensation be converted into an image and communicated?
This question drives the various artistic practices of the four participants. They each explore the physical through drawing, and vice versa. For example, a dance, walk or gesture can be the impetus for a performance with graphite, a spatial interplay of lines or somatic drawing.

The works in Embodied Lines re ect a heightened body awareness. Yet what is evident is not only artistic research into the sensibility of one’s own body, but the relationship of that body to the environment and the other. It reaches back to the physical essence of our humanity. Embodied Lines is an experimental exhibition with wall drawings, installations and performances made in situ that invite both introspection and interaction.

Opening: Saturday 21 September 2019
