Hellbrunner Straße 3, 5020 Salzburg, Austria

Opening words: Elfrid Wimmer-Repp, President of the Salzburger Kunstverein
Séamus Kealy, Director Salzburger Kunstverein
In the solo exhibition Erinnerung ist ein Gespenst which takes place in the context of the 2020 SpallArt Prize Salzburg, the artist Luise Schröder is showing photographs of her recent work 'Tenez bon, nous arrivons' in the Kabinett gallery of the Salzburger Kunstverein, Austria. This will include also an intervention outside the Künstlerhaus Salzburg called 'Memory Is a Ghost'. In her artistic works (including photographs, videos and publications), Luise Schröder deals with the instrumentalization of the past as it pertains to a politics of the present. She examines the perpetuation of historical myths and their significance for various identities and communities. Her work also questions how official commemoration is influenced and constructed by political, social, and media developments. She focuses on both national forms of remembrance and global tendencies of commemoration, as well as their ritual character and iconography. The photographic image and its function as a form of collective social memory play a key role in her work.

UNO-Flüchtlingshilfe, national partner of the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in Germany, is facing a special year in 2020. Since its foundation in Bonn in August 1980, the organisation has been committed to providing financial support for UNHCR's worldwide, life-saving operations and for projects and initiatives for refugees in Germany. Together with more than 100 artists, UNO-Flüchtlingshilfe sends a strong signal of humanity and solidarity for the more than 70 million forcibly displaced people worldwide through a nationwide, state-approved art lottery – a premiere in Germany. The proceeds of the lottery ticket sale (25,000 tickets) will be passed on to UNHCR. The more than 100 artists* have voluntarily agreed to support this common goal with a unique piece of art as an in-kind donation expressing deepest sympathy for the lottery’s mission of solidarity with refugees worldwide.

Botho-Graef-Art Prize 2018
March 6 – April 6, 2020
Thuringian state parliament Erfurt, Juergen-Fuchs-Strasse 1, Erfurt
Mon – Fri: 8 am – 6 pm
The exhibition The Lost Image presents the six proposals for a decentralized monument dedicated to Eduard Rosenthal (1853-1926) as part of the Botho-Graef-Art Prize 2018 of the city of Jena, Germany. Eduard Rosenthal was a Jewish lawyer, scientist and patron of the arts in Jena, who played a major role in drafting the first constitution of the Federal State of Thuringia in 1920. His memory as well as his contributions to society were completely erased by the National Socialists and his legacy was later forgotten. The resulting blind spot and Eduard Rosenthal’s appreciation are dealt with in various ways in the proposals on display. The Botho-Graef-Art Prize is dedicated to the promotion of contemporary art in the public space and is named after the patron Botho Graef. In 2020, the prize is in its 12th year. Exhibition with works by Luise Schröder, Horst Hoheisel & Andreas Knitz, Michaela Melian, Antonia Low, Patricia Pisani, Reanata Stih & Frieder Schnock
