THESAURÓS

Elshan Ghasimi

Elshan Ghasimi (*1981 in Isfahan, Iran) works as a musician and composer in meeting spaces of tradition and modernity, West and East, music and other art forms. Ghasimi's approach is greatly influenced by the tradition and practice of the radīf, the repertoire of Persian classical music, which is imparted from master to student through years of immersion and familiarisation. She has been living in Germany since 2016.

Elies Miniatures

When El Arbi Bouqdib passed away in March of 2016 in Bremen, Germany, he left many secrets yet to be unveiled. In order to manage and structure his estate, Bublitz founded the El Arbi Bouqdib Archive in 2017. As part of Bublitz Thesaurós, the Archive’s role is to report on and publicize the life and work of the biochemist, mystic, Qur’an researcher and poet.

In the summer of 2018, a new format and exhibition cycle premiered: Elies Miniatures. Based on the compositions of the classical Persian musician Elshan Ghasimi, the exhibition cycle interweaves classical music with various artistic genres and the divergent work of several authors.

Hilarion Manero

Thanks to the constantly effective miracle assumed by myth, the waking day of a people who are stimulated by myth, as the ancient Greeks were, does indeed resemble dream more than it does the day of a thinker whose mind has been sobered by science. If, one day, any tree may speak as a nymph, or if a god can carry off virgins in the guise of a bull, if the goddess Athene herself is suddenly seen riding on a beautiful chariot in the company of Pisistratus through the market-places of Athens - and that was what the honest Athenian believed - then anything is possible at any time....."

A statement about the Mnemosyne project

"In Europe, history and a vision of the future are very closely linked. Europe‘s promise revolves around two decisive transformations:

1. From war to peace – from European history we learn that erstwhile mortal enemies become peacefully coexisting and closely cooperating neighbours.
2. From coercion to freedom – from European history we learn that dictatorships can become democracies.

In order to safeguard these values, the EU‘s indifferent phase must be followed by a phase of revival, emotion, renewal and engagement. The project Mnemosyne. In Search of the European Identity is heading in precisely this direction. We therefore support it wholeheartedly."

Handlungsbereitschaft

Bublitz first exhibition cycle in 2011 was Handlungsbereitschaft – Skizze einer Generation am Ende der Geschichte. [Readiness to Act – Draft of a Generation at the End of History]. In this series, the sketch and psychogram of the generation born between 1980 and 1990 were designed. This was achieved by means of the works and positions of about 60 artists and guests, as well as by integrating cultural artefacts and a comprehensive dialogue and supporting programme.


Mυθοποίηση – Mythopoesis III

Nachricht vom letzten Menschen
The Mythology of Michal Martychowiec

Runtime: 30th August – 11th Oktober 2020
Opening 29th August, 6 PM

curated by Julian M. H. Schindele

Nachricht vom letzten Menschen [Message from the Last Man] is an exploration of the symbolic sign cosmos and the new mythology of Michal Martychowiec. The two main protagonists of this exhibition, which can also be understood as a parable, are the figure of the incredulous St. Thomas and the figure of the "panda". The latter can be understood as the "last man", how he was prominently described, e.g. by Max Weber or Friedrich Nietzsche.

The exhibition is also the third part of the cycle "Mυθοποίηση - Mythopoesis," curated by Julian M. H. Schindele. It is interested in forms taken by actualization, variation, the invention of myths, and archetypal narratives today as well as their poetological analysis.
