On October 27, 2023, we celebrate the opening of the final exhibition of our 8th year of the Fresh A.I.R. scholarship programme. Twelve artists from eight European countries have dedicated themselves for ten months to this year’s topic LINGUISTIC XPEDITION. They investigated the act of speaking as a constitutive element of human perception and communication. The artistic exploration ranges from aspects of everyday language use, verbal language actions, language thinking and language action to the structural power of language.

Colorful, loud and impressive, the artists show with their sculptures, paintings, illustrations, photographs, installations, drawings and audiovisual contributions that communication can be ambiguous and onomatopoeic, obscure and distort, and also fail.

Curator: Janine Arndt, Artistic director at Fresh A.I.R.
