Artist in Wittenberger Weg 2022

Adina Bar On

For one week, the future Wiesencafé on Wittenberger Weg in Düsseldorf-Garath has temporary walls. During that, the already existing platform is transformed into a 1:1 simulation of the planned building.

This outlook on the future Wiesencafé is made possible by the guest artist and scholarship holder of the Zentrum für Peripherie, Adina Bar On, who in May will make her first guest appearance in Germany. The Israeli pioneer of performance art will give a workshop on site at Wittenberger Weg during the week of 30 May to 3 June 2022. Together with children and young people from the Alfred Herrhausen School and the neighbourhood on Wittenberger Weg, as well as students from three universities, she will set up the filigree walls every day and take them down again in the evening. The ephemeral installation will also give an idea of what the café will look like once the building is made of permanent loam walls.

In the early 1970s, Adina Bar On developed her first performances while studying at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. Performance as an artistic medium was still unknown in Israel at that time. Adina Bar On was asked to return to painting and had to undergo a psychological examination in order to continue studying. These experiences were the starting point for the artist to develop her own form of teaching. Since then, Adina Bar On has taught for more than 40 years in Israel and internationally. Her teaching is an essential part of her artistic work. She will also give her lectures in Münster and Düsseldorf in May and June.
