Art Gift Book – 16 times ART – 16 mal KUNST

The art and gift book „16 times art“ introduces eighteen artists from sixteen countries by presenting four small works per artist. The group exhibition under the same title was held from 25 June – 21 August 2018 in the light-flooded foyer of Weißenthurm’s townhall on the left bank of the Rhine. In addition to the visual artworks shown at the exhibition the book also features several haiku poems from Germany and the Netherlands. As two of the poets are also visual artists, their work is presented under the heading: “art and poetry”. During the exhibition, three artists received an “honorable mention” and are featured more prominently on the cover, title page, and back of the book.
