Koffer Kunst/Suitcase Art: Chicago + Detroit presents 20 artists’ works from the USA's Midwest cities - Chicago and Detroit.  Brought via suitcases to meet with the work of 2 Hamburg artists, the exhibition features painting, drawing, collage, video, printed material, photography, and sculpture. While the exhibition highlights the diversity of art production in these distinct urban areas, the individual artworks invite both parallel and contradictory readings in the encounters that happen between the works and the cities in which they are produced. Presented at Kunsthaus Speckstrasse – Hamburg’s famous artists’ community space – the exhibition is co-curated by Tricia Van Eck, from Chicago’s 6018NORTH and Kerstin Niemann from FILTER, Detroit.
