Backdrops Gerrit Frohne-Brinkmann

Gerrit Frohne-Brinkmann’s works stand in the tension between man-made present and references to a glorified age. Backdrops reinterprets the maritime identity of Hamburg: With the help of airbrush specialists, Frohne-Brinkmann visualises prehistoric underwater landscapes on metallic partitions and wall elements. Installed in an underground car park (i.e. below sea level) the scenario presented here could also depict a reality after the disappearance of man.

Ship of Dreams (Working Title) Sebastian Quack

Together with a team of artists from Hamburg, Sebastian Quack is currently studying the emotive proximity with historical or fictional seafaring material in order to transpose the existential conflicts they address into the present and relate it to quotidian life as we experience it today. For IMAGINE THE CITY they develop an app-based work that relates the traditional passenger ship Seute Deern with its surroundings in the HafenCity. 

Draft: Ina Hollmann
Date Summer 2020

Kate Cooper has chosen to explore Hamburg’s self-image as a city. The standard design of international marketing strategies serves as a medium that allows her to expand on the polished surfaces of the location by adding the inadequacies of the ‘human factor’.

Date Autumn 2020

It takes good planning to create a good city. But it takes unexpected uses for it to become truly vibrant.
