Member exhibition 2020
As a former graduate of the State Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe, Brixy has for years maintained close ties to the city of Karlsruhe and its institutions, including the Badischer Kunstverein.
This was founded in 1818 and is the second oldest art association in Germany. The Badischer Kunstverein e.V. is a non-profit and registered association based in Karlsruhe, which is dedicated to the mediation of contemporary art. It belongs to the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Deutscher Kunstvereine (ADKV) and is one of the oldest German art associations.
Since 1900 he has been performing in the house built especially for his purposes at Waldstraße 3 in the centre of the city. On three floors and about 1,000 square metres of exhibition space, it has presented a stringent programme for the mediation and promotion of contemporary art since its foundation. Once a year, works by artists* are presented in the context of the members' exhibition. This year, the artist Dietmar Brixy is represented with a large-format work from the current HAPPY series.
As a result of the Corona Ordinance of the government of the state of Baden-Württemberg, the Kunstverein will be closed until 20.12.2020. Due to the uncertain situation beyond this date the Kunstverein has decided to carry out the members' exhibition of the year 2020 digitally.
From 20.12.2020 onwards, the artists* artworks will be presented on the website of the Baden Kunstverein:
