Dear members, dear friends of art,
The Kunstverein Tiergarten is pleased to be able to offer you annual art editions again this year. For this year’s Edition Nord, we were able to win over the artists Nasan Tur and Anna Werkmeister to realise extraordinary objects and prints.
Since 2011, the Kunstverein Tiergarten has been offering high-quality art at affordable prices with the annual Edition Nord. The high-quality prints, photos and objects in small editions as well as unique pieces come from artists who are active in the Kunstverein Tiergarten or have participated in exhibitions at the Galerie Nord.
Members of the Kunstverein can purchase the exclusive works at reduced prices. Non-members pay a little more. The purchase supports both the work of the Kunstverein and the work of the artists themselves.

Nasan Tur reflects on political and social contradictions in his works, locates direct and subliminal messages in public space like a seismograph and uses these as raw material for his works. In them, he comments laconically on political conflicts, the failure of ideologies and the role of the individual.
For Edition Nord, in the artistic act of breaking and engraving, he transforms a piece of wood into a subject that self-determinedly contradicts the act of being broken inflicted upon it. With “I am not broken” Tur metaphorically shows and describes with physical force the risk of rebellion, the possibility of failure as well as the act of contradiction and the active self-attribution of the individual.
Tur has shown his multimedia works of photography, installation, sculpture and video in numerous exhibitions such as the 10th Istanbul Biennial, documenta 14 and in numerous international museums and galleries. He has been a professor for spatial strategies in the postgraduate programme at the Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin since 2020.

Besides visual structures, it is sounds and noises, their temporal and technical processes, to which Werkmeister devotes her attention in her artistic practice. The repetitive as well as the interplay of transparency and opacity, of sharpness and blurriness is the focus of her pictorial research.
In the assemblage C1 aus 6 Min. visuell, the duration of the tone sequences of a passage of the 1st Cello Suite by J.S. Bach is extracted. Analogous to the musical structure, sequences of hand-drawn rectangles visualise the temporal dimension of the piece of music. Further layering of the various notation processes results in visual clusters that fuse medially as image and sonic recomposition.
Anna Werkmeister studied Realistic Design and Art History in Erfurt, leaving the GDR in 1981. She has shown her works in numerous exhibition venues such as Forum Konkrete Kunst Erfurt, Gropiusbau Berlin, Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl, German Embassy Tokyo and many more.
