As part of Sparwasser HQ's commitment to dialogue on forms of communication about contemporary art, we invite you to a series of "Artists' Talks." These talks will present artists' recent works, with particular emphasis on recent projects, and projects still in progress.

The aim of the weekly talks is to allow both artists and audience to exchange directly information, impressions, and feedback, in a friendly and constructive atmosphere and relaxed environment. Features of the artists' research will be pointed out and linked to other projects and experiences.

The invited artists will present and discuss with the audience the latest developments in their work, given approximately one hour time. Two artists will speak each week. Throughout the evening, hands-out from the artists will be available,and we will have bar service, at discounted prices, so that all can chill out, relax, and enjoy a beer or a glass of wine!

April 28: Jeroen Offerman, Jean Lee; May 7: Jan Rothuizen and Sean Reynard;
May 14: Deborah Ligorio, Karen Yasinski; May 21: Barbara and Jessica;
May 28: Zeigam Azizov and Colonel; continuing over months - and years.

Every Wednesday night in May and every Tuesday night in June, July and August 2003, always at 8 pm, we present artists, including Simon Starling, Heman Chong, Annika Ström, and Laura Bruce.

Artists' CVs and a brief introduction to their works can be found here.

The evenings will be held in English.

See you on Wednesdays!

Sparwasser HQ



During a 3-4 month period in Summer 2003, Sparwasser HQ did not show exhibition projects, but instead, once a week, invited artists to discuss their work with the audience. Two artists/artist groups were presented each week.

Sparwasser produced video documentation of the weekly dialogues. These videos are a useful tool for curatorial research and for sharing information among peer artists. The videos will be screened at some upcoming Sparwasser HQ events.

Documentation of previous and subsequent dialogues is also included in archive.
The dialogues were held in English.
