“I hadn’t touched it for weeks. But today I sat down again and started writing: DEAR DIARY…” And already you were immersed in the last days and weeks that were running through your mind. Whether it was a nice experience with a friend or a stupid argument with the parents, everything was taken apart in detail and written down. Or one dreamed of the things that seemed so unattainable. There was the secret crush in one of the higher classes or the great wish for a pet of one’s own. Youth, a time of extreme contradictions, melancholy, physical changes, depression and that indefinable lightness. Often one did things that were quite stupid, but at the same time necessary. Although one often did not understand oneself and the world, everything seemed possible somehow…
The multifaceted youth with its dreams and illusions is the theme of the four artists Theresa Rothe, Josefine Schulz, Johanna Seidel and Theresa Tuffner in the exhibition “DEAR DIARY”. Together they dedicate themselves to this special phase and deal with (personal) questions about identity, memories, love, friendships and the future. In addition, aspects and perspectives are opened up on how this time could perhaps be viewed with a certain distance. What can we learn from it and what should we definitely keep from it?
The art historian Sandy Becker curates the exhibition DEAR DIARY at SCOTTY.
