Today Was Yesterday – Between Here and the Beyond

Opening of Exhibition of Works by Thomas Judisch in the Cast Collection of Ancient Sculptures on July 8, 2016, at 7 p.m.

№ 244/2016 from Jul 05, 2016

Starting July 8, sculptures by Thomas Judisch will be on display in the Cast Collection of Ancient Sculptures at Freie Universität Berlin. In his series "Today was Yesterday," Judisch focuses on the stabilizing supports of ancient statues. He reduces his sculptures such as the Apollo Belvedere or the Medici Venus to these elements, thus creating voids. Judisch thus takes up a current issue in art – what is original, and what is a copy? The exhibition will run until October 2, 2016. It will be on display Thursdays through Sundays from 2 to 5 p.m., and admission is free.

Thomas Judisch was born in 1981 in Waren/Müritz. From 2003 to 2009 he studied at the Muthesius Art Academy in Kiel, and from 2009 to 2011 he was a master student of Everhard Bosslet at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden. Thomas Judisch has had numerous exhibitions in Germany and abroad, including at the Kiwotsukete Mojikobo Gallery in Tokyo (2016), the Sculpture Hall in Basel (2015), and the Collectiva Gallery in Berlin (2014). He lives and works in Hamburg.

The Cast Collection of Ancient Sculptures in Berlin includes about 2,000 casts of Greek and Roman sculptures. It is used for university teaching and research and also serves as a museum to make the sculptures of antiquity available to a wider public.
