DEEDS CALENDAR: Lin May Saeed. In Paradise the Snow Falls Slowly. A Dialogue with Renée Sintenis – Georg Kolbe Museum | until 25.02.2024

From 14 September 2023, the Georg Kolbe Museum will be showing the exhibition “In Paradise, the Snow Falls Slowly” by artist Lin May Saeed as a dialogue with Renée Sintenis. Styrofoam creatures climb out of their cages and colonise the Georg Kolbe Museum, wire lobsters free themselves from captivity with their scissors, figures taken from ancient sagas reflect the close relationship between animals and humans in Arabic-language poetry. The opening will take place as part of the Berlin Art Week on 13 September 2023 from 6 pm.
