The art project was realized in a German-French artist’s studio. In two such joint studios, 32 German and French artists in 16 binational “duos” created 16 large-format paintings (“placards”, painted on wooden panels, 3.60 x 2.60 m). These dealt with the theme “La Fraternité/Brüderlichkeit” (Fraternity) against the background of the history of the Natzweiler concentration camp complex and were/are intended for exhibition in public space.
The 16 binational artists and their works:
Ann Loubert, Bernard Latuner, Christiane Bricka, Didier Guth, Elham Etemadi, Eva Schaeuble, Gabi Streile, Germain Roesz, Haleh Zahedi, Harald Gruber, Isolde Wawrin, Jacques Thomann, Jean Baptiste Defrance, Johannes Mundinger, Jost Schneider, Jürgen Zimmermann, Louis Danicher, Luc Demissy, Marie-Jo Daloz, Marie-Pascale Engelmann, Max Wetter, Mike Überall, Mina El Bakali, Pascal H. Poirot, Rainer Braxmaier, Sabine Brand Scheffel, Sylvie Villaume, Veronika Olma, Vincent Krüger, Walter Jung, Werner Schmidt, Wolfgang Ebert.
The Art association PlakatWandKunst has created an own website for the art project. There all artists and their works are presented in two languages (German and French). To the website please follow this link.
During the studios, the artist Sylvie Villaume recorded her thoughts on the collaboration of the binational artist duos and wrote a work that can be purchased through the CERD.
The following first six works were exhibited in Stuttgart in the Haus der Wirtschaft. The following twelve works were exhibited at CERD. After the parallel exhibitions, all works went on tour to the Natzweiler Memorials.
