Weekend in Bremen

This past weekend I made  visit to the not so far away city of Bremen.
Bremen has the most wonderful Museum for Modern Art called The Weserburg. The Weserburg is a huge 4 story art museum cram packed with touring exhibitions and a permanent collection.
The highlight for me was a exhibition called We Fix Toasters by american artist Norman White, an exhibition of digital and kinetic art.

During my time in Bremen i got to explore the city and also visit the nearby town of Bremerhaven

I couldn't visit Bremen without touching the feet of the Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten - The Town Musicians

The winter season market and fair

Bremerhaven is the seaport of Bremen. It is a relatively new town founded in 1827 by Johann Smidt...

Bremerhaven is home to many of these wonderful modern sculptures that are dotted around the town

Now I'm back in Bielefeld continuing to make new work and making postcards to send back to Rochdale Art Gallery. I will have some new pictures of my most recent drawing experiments over the weekend.

  1. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee,
    The image can be seen at who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
