Two days before the official opening the initiators of the International Exhibition of Contemporary Arts allowed a first look at the works of 200 artists from 34 countries.
The press event started by a panel discussion of artists, friends, supporters and sponsors of the O14. The meeting provided an overview of the exhibition, about its development and this year’s design. New aspects of this issue were shown by the OSTRALE-director Andrea Hilger, while Benjamin Fleig from the gallery vorn & oben from Eupen (BE) described his work as a gallery partner. Verena Schneider, an independent curator and jury member of this year’s selection, gave insight into the work and criteria of the jury. Many of the participating national and international artists were also on-site and explained their works.
The OSTRALE presents, as the third-biggest annual exhibition of contemporary art in Germany, all genres of the international contemporary fine arts.
Its eighth edition will take place from July 18- 2014 until September 28- 2014 – the true to the motto “Around You”.
The OSTRALE focuses on artistic positions and perspectives which bring up questions – here and elsewhere – which affect the spectator, which puzzle, and connect. In recognising different identities and modes of expression, as well as recognising their equal participation in the discourse within contemporary commitment, we see an important potential for an open-minded Europe.
In the setting of the old slaughterhouse designed by architect Hans Erlwein, it covers the entire range of contemporary artists as one of Germany's and Europe's most important art festivals. More than 200 painters, sculptors and representatives of sound art, light sculpture, video, conceptual, installation, action and performance art present their individual creations on an exhibition space of 15,000 square metres and a 50,000-square-metre outdoor area. Since the first »OSTRALE« in 2007, the festival has gained enormous momentum and draws increasing numbers of visitors and artists.
