Christiane Blattmann, Entwaffnung III, 2018, silicone, pigment, cheesecloth, 49 x 67 cm


At the end of the exhibition Christiane Blattmann. Un-Break My Walls, a conversation between Christiane Blattmann and Oriane Durand (artistic director Dortmunder Kunstverein) will take place in order to enable a deeper insight into Blattmann’s oeuvre. In her works, Blattmann experiments with a variety of shaping methods, whereby the interaction of the materials used as well as theoretical and literary references serve as important points of departure.

Christiane Blattmann initially studied at the Berlin University of the Arts before transferring to the University of Fine Arts Hamburg in 2006, where she then graduated in 2013. Between 2011 and 2013, together with Jannis Marwitz, she ran the Betongalerie, an exhibition venue in public space in Hamburg St. Pauli. Since 2012 she has been part of the publishers’ team of Montez Press, which she had founded the same year together with Than Hussein Clark, Anja Dietmann, William Joys and James Connick. In 2012 she also went to Mexico City with a scholarship from Neue Kunst in Hamburg e.V., and in 2018 she was a scholar at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. Her works have been shown internationally, among others at The Community (Paris), at the Kunsthaus Hamburg, at Damien & The Love Guru (Brussels), at the art association Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof (Hamburg), at Croy Nielsen (Berlin), the Mathew Gallery (New York/Berlin), the Goethe Institut Paris, VI,VII (Oslo), at Marwan (Amsterdam), the Biennale Regard Benin (Cotonou) and at the NEK – Neuer Essener Kunstverein.

Oriane Durand is a curator, art historian and author. From 2010 until 2014 she worked as a curator at Kunstverein Nürnberg. 2014 she moved to Bonner Kunstverein, where she was responsible for the solo exhibitions of Klaus Merkel, Raphaela Vogel and Jonathan Binet. Since 2015 she is artistic director of Dortmunder Kunstverein. Her program shows an interest in artistic positions, which reflect on our technical, globalised society while sketching alternative scenarios.
