Ostrale 23 Dresden

10. June – 01. October 2023 | Dresden (Germany)

Work: Rotes Präparat II (Nullpunkt)

For the 14th time the OSTRALE – Centre for Contemporary Art organizes its international exhibition of contemporary arts in Dresden, in 2023 from June 10th to October 1st, at the unique robotron-Kantine building in the heart of Dresden.

The 15th anniversary of OSTRALE has been overshadowed by the 13th OSTRALE Biennale in 2021 and our EU project Flowing Connections, which led to great partnerships across Hungary, Lithuania and Croatia (see O21 / OUT of OSTRALE). For this year’s exhibition, the curators have looked back on the past 15 years with more than 2500 artists. They have compared, analyzed, proudly but also critically considered their paths, and now, together with the applicants from the open call, made a considerable selection of artists and their artworks.

In a review of the previous years since the founding of OSTRALE in 2007, with numerous exhibitions in Dresden and abroad, the curators Andrea Hilger, Antka Hofmann (artists) and Lisa Uhlig (art historian) have positioned the artworks on the subject of kammer_flimmern on 3000 sqm.
