Zebra #1: Forever Young!?
- Time of day7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
- Duration90 minutes
- RegistrationNo registration necessary
The sociological categories of childhood, youth, and adulthood would appear to be obsolete. Now, youth may continue forever, and in an age of constant repositioning and destabilization, it no longer ends as it used to, with the transition to adulthood, a lifelong career, starting one’s own family, etc. Rather, youth expands endlessly. The excessive emphasis on youth is connected to the paradigm of naturalness, the preference for the “naturally beautiful” as opposed to the “artificially beautiful.” In social media, an opposite trend can be diagnosed: selfies with distorted faces, masks, and contouring are phenomena that indicate that the artificial is no longer scorned, but instead appreciated. In the digital public space, it serves as a necessary tool for preserving some remnant of privacy and identity.
How do film, literature, and fashion reflect the ageless aesthetic of digital culture? How does the shift of body images and identities articulate itself in the analog space?
With sprezzatura, the first ZEBRA moves between critical analysis, artistic manifestation, and girlsplaining to questions of gender and taste. Musical empowerment is provided by the anniversary mix “Forever Young” by Public Possession. Foyer.
Thomas Eggerer in Conversation with Florian Pumhösl
Since the 1990s the artist Thomas Eggerer, who was born in Munich and lives in New York, has created subjects in his figurative paintings that are dedicated to the individual in the field of tension between community and isolation, as well as between the general public and individuality. The irony of his depictions of everyday scenes and gestures direct the gaze to their philosophical quality. InGo to the event

Jana Euler in Conversation with Monika Bayer-Wermuth
A scared white shark, a portrait of Ed Sheeran, or a female depiction of Christ: Jana Euler’s striking motifs are always only the entry to a larger debate about painting. For the last decade the Friedberg-born artist has used styles and expressive forms of painting eclectically in order to question the medium using its own means. In the process she opens the discourse on socially relevant issuesGo to the event
