This year was a special year. I am very grateful to have received the Scholarship of Visual Art of the City of Munich. Unfortunately I couldn’t be part of the beautiful award ceremony in November, so the wonderful Yvonne Leinfelder created a little documentary about my work (soon to be uploaded here). That’s how in the end I could send some words from Mozambique to Munich! I was more than happy that my mom would receive the prize for me and have a wild night with her girls crew at the new Gasteig HP8 space in Munich! Thanks the the city!
I’m a little excited to be part of this year’s World of Art – Online Auction. My record “Planet Earth Symphony” with an edition of only 5 copies will be auctioned (call number 24). It contains the sound history of our earth compressed into 16 minutes and is a real listening pleasure. I composed it together with the astrophysicist and metal head Dr. Ferdinand Hitzler.
With performative interludes by the Residenztheater actress Pauline Fusban and the director Jakob Roth, the evening is sure to be a great pleasure!
With the initiative “DEBUTANTINNEN des BBK München und Oberbayern” (Debutants of the BBK Munich and Upper Bavaria), the Berufsverband Bildender Künstlerinnen München und Oberbayern e. V. (Professional Association of Visual Artists Munich and Upper Bavaria) has been promoting outstandingly talented young artists in Bavaria since 1982. (BBK) has been promoting outstandingly talented young artists in Bavaria since 1982. Every year, the exhibition offers three artists the opportunity to exhibit their work in the GALERIE DER KÜNSTLER*INNEN and thus celebrate their professional debut at a central exhibition venue for contemporary art in Munich.
In addition, the Bavarian State and the LfA Förderbank Bayern support the series of young artists by financing a monograph, which enables the exhibitors to use the printed work as a means of artistic expression in addition to the exhibition format. The monograph offers the artists a platform to present their own artistic practice on a national level. The publication of Hyesun Jung, Sophia Mainka and Janina Totzauer – published by the BBK Munich and Upper Bavaria – will take place during the exhibition opening.
Tomorrow, 31st of July 2021, five young media artists show their recent video works at Werkstattkino in Munich. With great satisfaction I see an enormous interest in video art as the screening was booked out in 2 days time.
Filme: BLOODLESS POOL – Anna McCarthy & Paulina Nolte EATING HOOKS – Janina Totzauer WENN DIE GONDELN SCHWARZVICE TRAGEN – VKP, Marc Aurel & Gülbin Ünlü CHINESE WHISPERS – WÖRTHSEE – Simona Andrioletti & Riccardo Rudi THE USE OF OARS IS CALLED ROWING. – Justin Urbach A 2nd screening will take place on 26th and 27th November at Kunstarkaden.
Due to the brave decision to buy video art, the Mathias Pschorr Stiftung acquired my video “Viracocha” from 2019. Find it at the collection of Artothek Munich, where you can always lent it for a tiny fee.
Lent it, plug the stick to your personal projector / TV / PC and enjoy video art!
