Together, artists and visitors, submerged themselves in a multidimensional experience reflecting the human emotions. Our exhibition was divided into the following rooms:

  • The Yellow Room – Happiness, Joy, and Hope. Some of the most sought-after human emotions, even if only for a short moment. Find here artistic interpretations of these delicate emotions all in yellow.
  • The Theatre Room – The darker ranges in the spectrum of the human emotions.
  • The Black Room – The furthest depths of the human emotions. Here visitors found themselves facing their innermost feelings that we often want to hide from the world.
  • The Blue Room – Sadness and anxiety, some of the most painful emotions to cope with, can also inspire some of the most beautiful works of art. Presented here were the works of artists who were left feeling blue.
  • The Red Room – From love to hate. Burning brightly like a red-hot flame, the midst of some of the most powerful of human emotions were introduced in this room. 
  • The Live Music Room – the live music playing around the visitor as their journey through a spectrum of emotions drew to the end…
  • The White Room – The complex emotions. Like vividly coloured light beams converging together in a singular harmonic white light, the art that was found here conveyed many mixed emotions of peace and serenity.

The workshops that were held were:

  • The photography workshop (Hosted by the Photography Club)
  • The Paperstudio (Hosted by Cornelia Lohmann)
  • Aquarell Painting (Hosted by Peter Bock)
  • The Pottery workshop (Hosted by the Pottery Club)
  • The Ballroom dancing workshop (Hosted by the Ballroom Club)

ART FEST 2018: A CONSTELLATION OF EXPRESSION

Held on May 5th 2018, Art Fest made its first big debut.

We set out to celebrate Space together with the city of Bremen. And so, the theme of this multidimensional exhibition became Space itself and all that it contains.

Challenging the artists to express themselves through this concept was one thing. Gathering the work of around 90 artists from our university and the city, was another.

We decided the create little systems within each room of the exhibition, giving our visitors a trip through the galaxy. Our visitors had the opportunity to see:

  • The Earth room – preparing them for take off
  • The Stratosphere room – showcasing independently made movies by our students
  • The Galaxy room – filled with over 30 pieces from the university’s Pottery Club
  • The Space – where everyone could leave a piece of themselves behind
  • The Milky Way corridor – filled with many photographs, paintings and poetry. At this point the people had finally reached our galaxy, home.
  • The Nebulosa room –  where they got glittered up (literally)
  • The Start Dust room – to jam to live music
  • The Beyond room – where the majority of the paintings were, live paintings sessions were held, the flashmob surprised the crowd and the ballroom dancing performance was held
  • The Bar – of course.

We are proud to say, that the diversity that came through these artworks was undeniable and breathtaking.

While we are simply students with a passion for art, we wanted to bring strangers together with their art or interest in, for one simple reason: creating in a way that speaks to others without direct interaction remains one of the most profound human qualities.
