The debut of the new Kunsthaus curator Lotte Dinse: Colorful and with a depth of content, the Kunsthaus presents the exhibition “Victoria Lomasko. Impossible Return. A Chronicle of Thirteen Years.” The show opened to a full house on Friday, Oct. 6, in the presence of the artist and with greetings from Mayor Petra Broistedt.


Victoria Lomasko has been living in exile between Berlin and Leipzig since the outbreak of the Ukraine war. With her regime-critical reportage drawings of demonstrations, court cases and socially marginalized groups in her homeland, a return is not possible for her. This is reflected not only in the title of the exhibition, but also in the brilliant wall drawing made exclusively for the Kunsthaus, which can be admired in situ on the 2nd floor.

“This exhibition presents an important and artistic position that is on the pulse of the times in terms of content,” said Managing Director Dr. Dorle Meyer, explaining the selection. The exhibition was curated by Lotte Dinse. After the end of the founding phase, which Gerhard Steidl had accompanied in an honorary curatorial capacity, she has now taken over the artistic direction and is celebrating her debut at the Kunsthaus with the Lomasko exhibition. “The artist has an extraordinary oeuvre of drawings and always moving directly in the middle of events,” says Dinse, explaining Lomasko’s working method, which oscillates between art, journalism and activism.

Mayor Petra Broistedt was pleased about the new phase of the Kunsthaus under a female dual leadership and urgently promoted the Förderverein of the Kunsthaus, which was founded this year. The exhibition, featuring works from Lomasko’s series published in books such as “Forbidden Art,” “The Invisible and the Angry,” and “The Last Soviet Woman Artist,” as well as results of her “harvester” project at documenta fifteen, is on view through December 10.
