Madeleine Dietz: Correspondences
The special exhibition "Correspondences" shows artworks by the artist Madeleine Dietz, born in 1953 in Mannheim, as interventions in the museum's permanent exhibition as well as in the courtyard of the Landesmuseum Mainz. Initiating a dialogue between materials and situations is a basic element in the works of this artist, who won the Ernst-Barlach-Preis in 2003 and the Kulturpreis Kunst und Ethos in 2013. Steel and earth are the most important elements with which she works in ever new approaches and constantly changing constellations. For Madeleine Dietz steel stands as a symbol for culture and earth for nature. In her works both are contrasted and combined into a new unity.
