Artist of the month at the Academy of Fine Arts Library

Monthly changing exhibition at the Library displaying works by students and teachers of the Academy of Fine Arts.


February 2020



Élan is an intercultural, communicative and collective project, manifesting in a curated publication of concepts, interviews, texts, paintings, sketches and photographs by and with friends, colleagues and people that we have encountered during our research.

The mountain, around which french-lebanese author and painter Etel Adnan is constantly circling in her work, serves us as a point of reflection, and Adnan’s multidisciplinary approach informs our own.

Élan is an expression of our relations between Germany and France, and beyond, featuring texts in German, French and English.
