  • Victoria Pidust is part of the group exhibition *And THAT'S A GOOD THING. On view at the gallery starting April 08 2021. "Now what belongs together is growing together!" What was once supposed to mark the beginning of a new era still doesn't seem to have been fully overcome 30 years later. The gap between East and West is not only noticeable in the socio-political climate, but also in the art world. Although the six guest artists in the exhibition matriculated at art schools in East Germany out of conviction, a look at the established schools in the West reveals differences. Is less attention really paid to graduates of East German universities in the exhibition context of the country, even though the stylistics and educational focus of the East are essential in order to be able to draw a comprehensive portrait of contemporary art in Germany? Do curators need to rethink and be more open in order to avoid precisely this unequal treatment? While the portfolio of Galerie Judith Andreae has so far also been oriented towards the West, the group exhibition now concentrates for the first time exclusively on works by young artists from East German art academies. *AND THAT'S A GOOD THING. reinterprets the term 'quota' and shows works by Tiziana Jill Beck (*1982), Johannes Bosisio (*1994), Michael Klipphahn (*1987), Lisa Pahlke (*1987), Victoria Pidust (*1992) and Alexander Schulz (*1987) - students from the Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin, the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden and the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst Leipzig, who devote themselves to the genres of painting, drawing and collage.
