Roland Fischer’s column, entitled

„No Man is an Island“

is now installed at STOA 169


A hall of art in the middle of nature, supported by over 100 individually designed columns, created by internationally renowned artists from all over the world: the artist Bernd Zimmer has been pursuing this idea and its realisation for almost 30 years.

On a part of an agricultural meadow near the village of Polling, on the banks of the river Ammer, in the middle of Pfaffenwinkel, an open columned hall is being built: the STOA169. Artists from all continents were selected to design one column each, which together, as an archive of today’s art, would carry the common roof of the STOA169.

Fondazione MAST, Bologna: „Uniform“, Jan 21, 2020 – Sep 20, 2020
UNIFORM: INTO THE WORK / OUT OF THE WORK is the new exhibition project of Fondazione MAST. Curated by Urs Stahel, it is dedicated to work uniforms and it shows, through over 600 pictures by great international photographers, the many types of clothing worn by workers in different historical, social and professional contexts. Designed to distinguish those who wear them, on the one hand uniforms signal membership of a category, an order or a corps, without distinction of class or background, on the other hand they can also highlight the wearer’s separation from the community. The word „uniform“ simultaneously reveals inclusion and exclusion.

Roland Fischer @ Bombas Gens Centre D’art, „HYPERSPACES“, València, Spain, 13.02.2020 – 24.01.2021
“Hyperspace”: This exhibition raises how the reflection on architecture is at the origin of numerous works of art that build spaces, based on perceptive, mental and affective imaginary. In visual arts, architecture, far from being an abstract space, becomes an envelope, a membrane, the skin of our life. The architectural space, which stimulates our mental projections and physical and psychic introjections (memories, actions), has not lost in art its original power to protect the body.

(left wall: Roland Fischer „Refugees“, from „Collective Portraits“)
Although in recent years television news and journalism have catapulted the flow of refugees as a problem to the front page, the history of the 20th century is riddled with dramatic conflicts and millions of people displaced, exiled, expatriated and living as refugees. The story of humanity itself is built on forced displacement, flight and asylum. This project recaptures the title of a well-known essay by Hannah Arendt published in 1943 in Menorah Journal, a prestigious New York-based Jewish magazine, with the aim of identifying and emphasising the universal nature of exile and the construction of democratic societies based on the protection of the right to asylum.
