Backdrop Gerrit Frohne-Brinkmann

Art despite the crisis: Why not pep up your daily walk by dropping by the underground car park at Sandtorkai, either on your own or with a friend/partner, on foot or by car? On display there from April 17 is the sculpture entitled Backdrop by Gerrit Frohne-Brinkmann, which draws our gaze away from everyday life on land and directs it at the oldest marine life forms ever to have existed.

After recovering in a protected place during wintertime, the bees returned back to the Bee Chapel on the roof of the Ecumenical Forum on May 18, where the installation is open again for visitors.

Zero Shift Kapwani Kiwanga 

Uncovering the Unknown - Kapwani Kiwanga's new project aims at highlighting exemplary elements that structure public space but often go unnoticed by the very people who use them. Working with the means of colour, light or other temporary interventions in the urban infrastructure, the Canadian artist develops a site-specific installation that deals with the quay walls between the historical centre, Speicherstadt and Hafencity.
