The English word zip refers to a compressed data format, but is also a verb that refers to closing and opening (with or without a zip fastener). It can be short for postcode, the name for a sibilant sound or an abbreviation for nothing at all. It also occurs in the German language: as a historically documented legal term in the market county of Meissen, which was used to measure and name the grain tax, but only some medievalists know this. The meanings overlap and only become visible in specific cases.

15 master students (Meisterschüler:innen) of the HfK Bremen have agreed on this sound as the title for their exhibition in the Gerhard-Marcks-Haus 2024, which conceals both the condensed character of the 15 presentations, each of which stands for a question developed during the course of study, and the common claim that works and artistic attitudes can unfold in the museum space.

The exhibition concept is developed together with the museum team. The positions will be presented throughout the museum, with individual artists occupying specific rooms and walls and others distributing their works throughout the building. The exhibition provides a good overview of the current focus of artistic training at the HfK, from painting to 3D animation and printing, and the state of contemporary art in Bremen.

A jury will select the winner of the Karin Hollweg Prize of 18,000€ from the exhibition.

The master students were accompanied by HfK professors Heike Kati Barath, Stephan Baumkötter, Natascha Sadr Haghighian, Andree Korpys and Markus Löffler, Katrin von Maltzahn, James Richards and Ingo Vetter.
