The Kunsthaus Göttingen presents the international group exhibition ‘Togetherness’ from 20 July – 10 November 2024. On display are artistic positions that explore the many facets of friendship, belonging, love and (queer) relationships in the medium of comics and graphic novels. The illustrators deal with social norms, role clichés, intimacy, body and gender concepts, identity issues and self-optimisation. The works on display include personal experiences, social observations, fantastic stories and humorous narratives.

In the exhibition, drawings and texts by Nino Bulling (1986, Germany), Lina Ehrentraut (1993, Germany), Tommi Parrish (1989, Australia) and Marijpol (1982, Germany) are shown and partly complemented by sculptural works and objects.

In his book ‘Abfackeln’, published in 2022, Nino Bulling tells the story of Ingken, who no longer feels like a woman and is in search of a self-determined identity. Bulling traces personal crises and upheavals against the backdrop of global climate change. In ‘Melek und ich’, Lina Ehrentraut deals with self-love and different facets of the self. She creates a fictional scientist who succeeds in building a body with which she can travel to parallel worlds where she encounters herself. Tommi Parrish’s works from ‘Trusting People’ deal with the question of how we can build closeness and trust in relationships and where the boundaries to intimacy lie. In ‘Hort’, Marijpol tells the story of three extraordinary women who live in a shared flat. Their lives are characterised by independence and self-realisation, until one day they take in three abandoned children.

Comics are a hybrid medium that oscillates between visual art and literature. The exhibition not only explores the relationship between images and texts, but also tests experimental, spatial forms of presentation in order to transfer the stories originally told in book form into the exhibition space.

Curated by Dorle Meyer & Lotte Dinse
