Pattern & Signs convey historical, cultural as well as social structures. To be aware of and reflect their correlation is a fundamental prerequisite for the liveliness and quality of human coexistence. The exhibition project “Pattern & Signs” deals with this task. It derives from a cross-generational network of artists coming from Thailand, China, India, Cameroon, Bulgaria, Romania and Germany. The artists live and work between the continents; they act “in transit”. In their works they question their state of being “in between” and reflect on an intercultural dialogue and its aesthetic means of expression against the background of their own cultural roots. The opening of “Pattern & Signs” marks the first part of this project.
