What’s it all about?
Five contemporary German-speaking artists, six days of travel throughout the Southeast and four pop-up art exhibits – this transatlantic art road show will tease your contemporary art taste buds!
Make sure you don’t miss this exciting tour and the chance to engage in art discussions with the artists, get an introduction to contemporary German and Austrian art, and network with like-minded art-lovers at this great reception in Atlanta.
We have the pleasure of hosting the Atlanta leg of this event, along with the Consulate General of Germany in Atlanta. The hon. Christoph Sander, Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany to the Southeastern United States will open the event.
Who are the artists?
Earlier this year, Klaus Becker, Honorary Consul of Germany in Charlotte, NC (www.klausbecker-clt.com), invited five established and promising artists from Germany and Austria to exhibit their works in this part of the States. This made their paintings and sculptures available and publicly accessible to people like you here in the Southeastern United States.
Bodo Berheide, (Wuppertal, Germany)
Bodo is best known for the eighteen-year-long world tour of his six ton sculpture Figura Magica, studied under Joseph Beuys at the Düsseldorf Art Academy and is now producing paintings and sculptures and showing his work in various exhibitions. www.bberheide.de

Dr. Birgit Wewers, (Witten, Germany)
Birgit, who has a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering, now focuses on her passion for art, creating complex paintings that deal with many themes, including ephemerality and transformation. She teaches art and painting classes. www.birgitawewers.de
