7 Minutes Studio


A cooperation project between Kunsthalle Osnabrück and hase29 - Gesellschaft für zeitgenössische Kunst Osnabrück e. V.


Dear artists from Osnabrück and neighborhood,

hase29 and Kunsthalle Osnabrück have jointly developed a program for July, called 7 Minutes Studio, to which we cordially invite you!

We want to give a stage for you and your art. Six times we will invite five artists per appointment to publicly present their works and concepts in a 7-minute PowerPoint presentation or any (digitizable) form in German or English at Kunsthalle Osnabrück. Elisabeth Lumme, curator, art mediator and board member of hase29, subsequently issues questions and moderates comments from the audience. After the presentations, artists, guests and invited curators can exchange their views and thoughts, while having a drink together.

The presentations are not only an opportunity to present yourselves to the Osnabrück audience, but also a chance to be noticed internationally. In 2020, the annual congress of IKT (International Association of Curators of Contemporary Art) will take place in Osnabrück and Herford. More than 700 national and international curators are part of this network. By creating a digital portfolio of our regional art scene including the 7 Minutes Studio presentations, we will make your work available to the guests coming to Osnabrück to the congress from all over the world next spring - a perfect opportunity to present yourself as artist to an international, diversified curatorship!


The dates of 7 Minutes Studio are:

Monday, July 8

Wednesday, July 10

Tuesday, July 16

Thursday, July 18

Wednesday, July 24

Friday, July 26

from 7 to 9 pm at Kunsthalle Osnabrück.


Another little extra:

In preparation for the presentations, the participants have the opportunity to take part in a portfolio workshop conducted by artist Kati Gausmann on Monday, June 24 from 6 to 10 pm at hase29.

European Media Art Festival No. 32: WILD GRAMMAR


Language widens and defines boundaries. It creates our image of the world, and shapes our interaction with the world and with each other. Time and again, artistic languages in particular have worked against the simplification and entrenchment of our image of reality: they have deliberately produced non-sense, cultivated contradictions, upturned hierarchies, and devised new codes that let us see and experience the world in a different way: “wild grammar” as a counter declaration and an attempt to make a clean break.

With 32nd European Media Art Festival Osnabrueck will once again become a forum for exciting media art discourse. Featuring the theme of Wild Grammar, this year’s festival offers a whole host of works from Germany and abroad that are devoted to the question of the transformative power of language.

The programmers and curators have selected a multitude of high-calibre works from the 2,200 or more entries. This year, EMAF presents more than 130 short and feature-length films, as well as round about 40 installations and performances.

During talks at the Kunsthalle Osnabrueck, we will discuss the topic of language, using language. Several locations will showcase a wide range of pieces by young artists from various higher education institutions. Showcasing audiovisual works, exhibition performances, installations, sound performances and animations, INIT Experience provides the opportunity for lively exchange based on all kinds of artistic forms of expression at the Haus der Jugend and Haus Heger Straße 29/30.


Opening: April 24th | 7.30 pm

Festival: April 24th to 28th
