Horses are a popular and frequently depicted motif in art.
In recent years, teachers have noticed a conspicuous accumulation of horse paintings in the corridors and studios of the painting building. New depictions of these versatile animals have appeared almost weekly. Many of these works are so well done that the question of why doesn't even arise. The pictures speak for themselves.

The painting teachers have taken this as an opportunity to present the horse paintings created in Weißensee in all their different facets in an appropriate public setting.

The material is already available - so the exhibition does not require long preparation.
The whole thing is curated by a team of four students, supported by lecturers Friederike Feldmann and Alexander Wagner.

The works correspond with each other, similarities and contrasts are highlighted, references are made clear, comparisons between the different working methods and thematic focuses become visible. The spectrum of works ranges from miniatures to wall-filling formats - tongue-in-cheek, humorous, surprising, as homage or unbroken declaration of love.
