Etna carrara @ Ludwig Forum Aachen

June 24 – September 2, 2012

The exhibition ETNA CARRARA presents works by the nine artists who were awarded the renowned Villa Romana Prize in 2011 and 2012: Wolfgang Breuer, Nine Budde, Thomas Kilpper, Henrik Olesen, Sophie Reinhold, Yorgos Sapountzis, Nora Schultz, Rebecca Ann Tess and Vincent Vulsma.

On the occasion of the exhibition, Thomas Kilpper will develop a 15 x 4 metre banner for the façade of the Ludwig Forum Aachen, which is a partial impression of his floor work for the Venice Biennale 2011. The wooden floor of the “Pavilion for Revolutionary Freedom of Speech” with its 33 portraits of politicians served as a printing block for the large-format banner.
