About

Contemporary art is the protagonist of the celebrations of the 40th anniversary of the twinning between San Sebastian and Wiesbaden. The Association of Contemporary Art Galleries of Donostia, DAGGE, in collaboration with the City Councils of the two cities, the Provincial Council of Guipuzcoa and the Wiesbaden-San Sebastian Twinning Association, presents an artistic event that shows works by artists from Guipuzcoa in the German city and the most current works of artists from Wiesbaden in San Sebastian.

The exhibition of the artists from the German city in the Arteko gallery of San Sebastian begins this May the artistic journey of GOING AND RETURNING that will culminate with the exhibition in the halls of the City Hall of Wiesbaden of the artists from Gipuzkoa, in the month of October.

Nicole Ahland, Margareta Tovar, Tjark Ihmels, Sandra Trösch and Jan Schmelcher are the 5 artists who present their works for the first time in San Sebastian from three different disciplines: photography, painting and drawing. A representation of 5 artists who come from our sister city to show us their current creations; a variation of works on paper with photographs by Nicole Ahland, Trier-1970 and Sandra Trösch, Trier-1983, and drawings by Jan Schmelcher, Giessen-1968. Other larger format works on canvas are paintings by Margareta Tovar, Georgsmarienhütte-1949 and Tjark Ihmels, Leipzig-1963.

The same disciplines as well as a digital projection and a musical composition will be reflected in the exhibition of the 6 artists from Gipuzkoa that will take place in the halls of the City Hall of Wiesbaden.
