Return Gallery at the Goethe-Institut Irland





A series of exhibitions by students of the film class at the Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main

From September 2021 through spring 2022, the Goethe-Institut’s Return gallery will host “The German School”, an exhibition programme of artworks from the Film class of the internationally known Städelschule art academy in Frankfurt.
Initiated by Irish artist and Städelschule Professor, Gerard Byrne, the programme presents diverse new work from 24 students who originate from across five continents. Even in the wake of the past 18 months of isolationism, “The German School” programme reflects an appetite amongst younger artists to connect internationally, affirming a constellation of localities connecting via Dublin, Frankfurt, and Elsewhere.
In recent decades the Städelschule in Frankfurt has become an important international magnet for young artists to congregate, exchange, and cultivate a diversity of artistic practices together. All this under the benign care of a 200 year old Art academy, in the relatively subdued city of Frankfurt.

With a pedagogical approach that is very non-prescriptive, diverse, and highly oriented towards the development of each individual’s practice, the Städelschule students work might collectively evidence new forms of Cosmopolitanism, reflective of our contemporary global conditions of connection and uncertainty.
Over the course of a programme of six exhibitions at The Return gallery, “The German School” will consider, and reconsider these Cosmoplitanisms amidst the rich backdrop of a Georgian Dublin townhouse.

The first exhibition in the series is “Drawing” from 9 September – 30 September 2021 with works by Gabriele Rendina Cattani, Hyunjung Choi, Arthur Stachurski und Jia Jun Nicholas Toh.
