Joseph Beuys described his 1965 performance “How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare” (“Wie man dem toten Hasen die Bilder erklärt”) as an effort to expand the human potential for thought and expression beyond the rational. The group of artists of the 38th round of Pilotenkueche International Art Program played on a similar concept during one of their first meetings. The newly assembled group decided to choose an exhibition title through a sentence-building game in order to find a common ground for future collaboration. This resulted in “Unfinished Hase”. The phrase also evokes a common motif in the visual arts, the hare being a symbol for various mythological meanings in different cultures throughout art history. Halfway through their development process during their 3 month stay at the residency, their work will be exhibited at Alte Handelsschule. Text by curator, Tena Baksaj
