Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin

DISSONANCE. Platform Germany, edited by Mark Gisbourne and Christoph Tannert, is a book published by DCV that surveys 81 artistic positions in the field of painting in Germany.
Following the publication of the book, Künstlerhaus Bethanien is now presenting a first exhibition with 40 selected positions.
It is often argued that any selection of artists must follow a previously validated discourse so as to ensure its meaningfulness, in much the same way that cities and municipalities choose the beneficiaries of their graves of honour. The selection process adopted by editors Mark Gisbourne and Christoph Tannert was consistently guided by the chronological watershed of 1972, and was otherwise interested in voices which are not yet known to the general public and which, in one or two cases, are still too little-known even among the professional audience.
