Stand und Verfassung
A project by Inge Mahn and Vlado Velkov
A Christmas tree is also affected by the lockdown in Brandenburg. It is located on Lake Wolziger near Funkenmühle and will remain there for the foreseeable future. This socially distant Christmas tree by Inge Mahn and Vlado Velkov floats, lonely, on a raft on top of cold water. Without family and friends, he turns on his axis again and again and dances with his reflection. For the small community on the shore that helped with the production, the tree evolved into a social project that brings people back together, brings joy and instills hope. The work, titled Stand und Verfassung (Status and Constitution), is on view until the end of the lockdown, from the shore in Funkenmühle.

INGE MAHN et al.
In Its Own Shadow (group show)
19 October 2023 – 7 April 2024
Work by Inge Mahn is on view in a group exhibition at Arter, Istanbul. Drawn from the Arter Collection and comprising works by 25 artists, In Its Own Shadow is conceived around thematic dualities such as inside and outside, public and private, presence and absence, memory and oblivion, void and body; and seeks out the grey areas that arise from the interplay between these notions.
