UPCOMING SOLO SHOW "ERASURE" AT THE GALLERY J.J. HECKENHAUER by Mauren Brodbeck

Photographs form the series „Erasure“, “Monochrome” and „A Moving Image of Eternity” will be in the exhibition from April 11th until June 1st, 2019 at the Galerie J.J. Heckenhauer in Münich.

Opening reception Thursday April 11th, 2019 from 5 pm to 8 pm.

The series "Erasure" is a study and a reflection on the state of being and appearing as well as the erasure and modification of our identity in the face of the beliefs, the cultures and the personal ties we can have. Who are we underneath all of the layers that help us to function in our societies? What is our true nature? The photographs are re-worked with a razor blade used to scratch and move the colour pigments. This is an ongoing series. We are educated to follow and forget about what is most important, our instincts, our creativity, our intuition. In the series “Erasure” the work investigates how identity is molded, folded, destroyed and rebuilt by an expression of inner pulsion, a cry for life and authenticity.

Launching the Podcast "On Display" by Mauren Brodbeck

New podcast explores how women artists overcome societal demands to maintain their creative identities and artistic practice

A the end of last year, I launched my special project RAW AND RADICAL. My mission is to foster a strong community of like-minded female artists, creative women, and art enthusiasts who stand up for freedom of expression, empowerment, authenticity, and who work towards global change. I started a first podcast, “PRIVATE VIEW,” in which I intimately explore my personal experiences and challenges as a female artist.

Living a creative life is a daily commitment that requires faith, love, and self-confidence. This is a place to connect, become inspired, be true to yourself, dream, and shine. Let's remind each other that anything is possible! Let's speak up for those who can’t speak up for themselves. Let's inspire each other.

March 8th, 2019, for International Women’s Day, I launched “ON DISPLAY,” a new monthly podcast dedicated to intimately exploring the challenges women artists face while living their creative lives.

“ON DISPLAY” features conversations with present-day women artists, focusing on how they maintain their artistic practices and creativity while also coping with the expectations of society, their families, workplaces, and the rest of the creative community. While most art-related podcasts focus on best business practices, marketing, and career advancement, “On Display” is devoted to discussing how identity, creative energy, and outside demands intersect and interplay in an artist’s quest to live a creative life.

“Through this podcast, I want to inspire and empower women who aspire to live a creative life by opening up a really honest conversation about the true nature of our creative force, our role as women in society, and our challenges, fears, successes and failures. The podcast is about our inspiration, our commitment, our learnings, sincerity, and openness.”
