Henrik Godsk & Jordy Kerwick for Museum Show

Villa Schoningen

PIERMARQ* represented artists Henrik Godsk & Jordy Kerwick will appear in influential Museum show titled 'This Must Be the Place' at Villa Schoningen in Germany from 9 September - 28 November 2021.

 

An excerpt from the exhibition press release: 

"In the current exhibition of the villa, the works of art refer to individual moments, themes and emotions and achieve something timeless, universal, especially without any claim to absoluteness. Like the Talking Heads singer, who searches for the place in the song that he can call home - and realizes that he has actually already found it: 

 

Home, is where I want to be

But I guess I'm already there"

Villa Schöningen is a historic residence in the city of Potsdam, Germany. Since 1977, Villa Schöningen has been included in the Heritage List of the State of Brandenburg, and the area around it has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage site Palaces and Parks of Potsdam and Berlin since 1990. In November 2009, a historical museum opened in the Villa Schöningen on the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The museum was opened by Chancellor Angela Merkel with former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev also in attendance. The museum tells the story of the Glienicke Bridge, which from 1949 to 1989 was famous as the Bridge of Spies as it was used for exchanging captured agents between the Soviet bloc and the free West. A video installation by Stefan Roloff is part of the mansion's permanent exhibition.
