Set of Two Bremen Postcards


Set of two postcards in a series of eight postcards produced by Aleksandra Mir as part of her participation in the exhibition "A Lucky Strike. Art Finds City" held at GAK (Gestellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst), Bremen, Germany, September 9 - October 30, 2005.

"Bremen" 300,000 postcards were distributed throughout the city. The artist used 8 motifs from vacation spots from all over the world and had them supplemented with the typical lettering and insignia of Bremen postcards.

As part of the exhibition project "A Lucky Strike. Art Finds City" by the Society for Current Art (GAK), ten regional and international artists and artist groups reacted with actions on Bremen's urban space. In addition to outdoor installations, there were video productions, presentations and works that understood public space as a communication space. Passers-by were also asked to become active themselves. The exhibition was accompanied by an extensive program with readings, lectures, artist talks and films on the subject of "City".

Participants were: Atelier d'Architecture Autogérée (Constantin Petchou, Doina Petrescu, John Sampson), CityCrimeControl (Thomas Böker, Ulf Treger, Christian Vähling, Sandy Volz, Manuela Wolf), Jeppe Hein, Lutz / Guggisberg (Andreas Lutz, Anders Guggisberg) , Aleksandra Mir, Pureculture (Emils Rode, Simona Weiland), Michael Rakowitz, Werner Reiterer, Santiago Sierra, Sustersic / Schalk (Apolonja Sustersic, Meike Schalk)

Curators of the exhibition project: Gabriele Mackert, Horst Griese." -- publisher's statement.
