On 30 June 2022, the Paper Art Museum Haus des Papiers will celebrate the entry of the new objects of this year’s Paper Art Award winners into the museum with a festive vernissage. The exhibition “Seduce me, paper” also includes works by Jorinde Voigt, Barbara Beisinghoff and Wolfgang Heuwinkel.
Four works of extraordinary sensuality have found their way into the visual paper art museum through this year’s Paper Art Awards. The award-winning works depict emotions in a subtle and multi-layered way, captivating, touching and seducing us.
Starting with the tangible feminine sensuality and intelligence of Afshan Daneshvar’s work from the “Boats Series”, to the impressive embrace of different materials by Lisa Tiemann in her work from the “Couples” series, to the astonishing objects by Aja von Loeper, which she wrings from the paper through intense friction, to the layered and polished object by Goekhan Erdogan.
In addition, selected works by Jorinde Voigt, Barbara Beisinghoff and Wolfgang Heuwinkel will be presented. In their many years of work, these artists have also devoted themselves to paper, a material that is better suited to capturing and depicting emotions than almost any other. “Seduce me, Paper” invites you to get involved in these sensual worlds of paper.
The vernissage begins at 6 pm with a personal welcome by the director, Annette Berr. Afterwards, the new objects will be presented in a guided tour by the curator. Afterwards, there will be time on the museum terrace to exchange ideas over a refreshing drink.
Admission to the event is free.
Start of a new event series at Haus des Papiers
On Friday, 24.06.2022, the new series of events of the visual paper art museum will start. The summer programme will take place on the museum terrace. Under the headings Paper Talks, Paper Connections and Paper Actions, many different opportunities for exchange and participation will be offered, from expert talks and artist talks to various networking events and workshops. The Founders Talk with museum founders Annette Berr and Ul Vohrer will kick things off. We will talk to them about the founding of the Haus des Papiers and the road to it, about creativity and courage, about fears and successes. Experiences can be exchanged and questions asked in a relaxed atmosphere. The founders want to encourage women in particular to venture on the path to self-employment. Many other events are currently being planned, including a paper sewing workshop with the artist Guy Lougashi and a packaging design workshop with Beate and Robin Bock of the Kurt-BockKartonagen company. The programme also includes workshops on paper making and origami as well as holiday events for children in which, for example, mini-museums are designed, paper beads are twisted and pop-up cards are made.
