Why “Momentous”?

Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden has been organizing editions since the 1990s. There have been many artists who have worked together with the Kunsthalle to provide timely offers for our visitors, audiences and communities.

They say, “Every collector collects themself” but we add, every edition is an opportunity to preserve the zeitgeist. Considering the structural changes we initiate at the Kunsthalle since the beginning of our appointment, we have also decided to rethink the editions with the currency of our time.

We present artwork editions, which might not only bring financial support for the loss of ticket sales during the pandemic but also put forward a new way of collecting, preserving and being engaged with artistic research and production.

What you can not find during the Covid-19 pandemic at the art market is released as special opportunities through conversations, studio visits, commissions and also research on further production possibilities. We would like to connect with a new profile and generation of collectors, who are interested in being involved with the process of artists and their studios in Post Covid-19.

Momentous Editions are developed to revise the negotiations between the institution and the artists based on the necessities of our time, such as solidarity, collaborative thinking and support structures. They are available to our network, and they also operate as entry points for those who want to be engaged with the research and content development at the Kunsthalle. Each one is numbered and signed with love, hope and passion here. Starting from 300 euro, they target a range of interests with diverse motivations.

We are thankful to Yael Bartana, Mehtap Baydu, Egemen Demirci and Assaf Kimmel who have actively participated in the discussions for imagining a future Kunsthalle together with the experience of practicing in Germany. They present recent editions from their work to support the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden.
