In the coming weeks, things will be topsy-turvy in the Schlumper Galerie.

Under the title “Gore I Dole” (a Serbo-Croatian phrase meaning “over and under” or “topsy-turvy”), works by four artists will be presented. Magid Ajjane and Mawuena Ahadzie are members of the Schlumper atelier team, and renowned Hamburg artists Marc Lüders und Dragan Prgomelja will join as guests.

The pictures are involved with overpainting in the broadest sense. This technique, now an artistic genre of its own, appears here as neither correction nor restoration. Nor is it an act of destruction, but rather an effective opportunity for expression. The original works take on another character and sometimes a completely new meaning. Totally different levels are clearly defined: the over, the under, the before, and the after.

In terms of style and content, these four artists treat the technique and material in very different ways. Nonetheless, the pictures in the exhibition all have something in common: they awaken our curiosity for what lies beneath. The covered and the covering both inspire a new and differentiated way of seeing.

What will our society look like? Will it become healthier, more perfect, flawless even? Because of medical progress this no longer seems utopian. An increasing number of diseases can be treated, genes can be adjusted, everything seems controllable. So now that we have an idea of what society could be like in the future, the question remains in which society we want to live.
Wit.h and Dr. Guislain Museum brought together visual and performing artists who wonder whether we really want to know everything that science can tell us, because with more freedom comes more responsibility. And how free will we actually be when we are making these choices?
Blood Test is not merely an exhibition, but also a Walking Opera, a Gesamkunstwerk in which music, visual arts and theatre merge. It is a walk alongside letters, tombstones and through an acoustic labyrinth, where you will meet semi-characters, extinct animals and quite an extraordinary giant.


Rohullah Kazimi from the Schlumper Studio is taking part in this exhibition.
