The Marvellous Cacophony
curators: Gunnarr B. Kvaran et Danielle Kvaran
At the beginning of 21st century, despite the fact that the Western notion of contemporary art has become an universal model of reference, no single common denominator has emerged. The art world has many centres, multi-layered activities, a plurality of ideas about what art is and what it can be, and an impressive number of heterogeneous works. This Marvellous Cacophony reflects the richness of the world. It is a positive condition, creating energies that can include dissonance and even conflicting ideas and expressions. It involves the coexistence of multiple identities and permanent relational flows, conveying notions of miscellany and openness, and creating meaningful narratives about art and culture, social issues and politics.
The Marvellous Cacophony will explore worldwide artistic production, looking into diverse art scenes and different generations of living artists. It will bring together a constellation of works that express, through their forms, structures, materials, techniques, devices and content, the extraordinary richness of contemporary artistic expression.

Møenlight Sonata - A homage to the starry sky of Møn
curator René Block
To celebrate its tenth anniversary, Kunsthal 44Møen will put together a special constellation of stars under the lyric name "Møenlight Sonata", alluding to Beethoven's 14th sonata for piano, which he also referred to "quasi una fantasia". The show will present a cross-section of the Kunsthal's program so far, as well as newly commissioned works by artists from Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Great Britain and Turkey that are still new to the island. What connects the works of these individual artists is the specific use of light, as subject and material. Light (or the absence of it) is not only one of the oldest topics in art history, but also a special condition on Møn ? during the day, but also at night.The 10 year anniversary of Kunsthal 44Møen is conceived to be a summer festival, an invitation to all groups of local residents and visiting guests to celebrate the sky over Møn.
The focus of this group exhibition is the drawing material CHALK. Artists have been asked to produce new works with blackboard chalks and there are (inter)national loans by Joseph Beuys, Rudolf Steiner, Juan Munoz and Nemanja Nikolic.
