Memento, logistic terminal, role model? The questions related to the topic of the annual exhibition of the Professional Association of Visual Artists Hamburg (BBK) seem highly topical. This year, more artists than ever participated in the open call and submitted a variety of different approaches. The idea of the six-person jury for the topic of the exhibition has found a considerable echo. They had encouraged the members of the BBK to depict their individual associations with the term mother with artistic means. Thereby, certain cultural fields seem to have salient relevance; among those such that question the principles of nature, examine about life processes, investigate fields of work, or probe gender roles. The 24 selected artists form Hamburg have reflected the term mother on the basis of a whole range of ideas, projections and personal experiences. The works exhibited range from painting to drawing, sculpture, textile art, installation, photography and performance. The exhibition is supposed to give grounds for a comparison with the viewers’ own points of view.
