Bee Chapel HafenCity Terence Koh

After equally delighting inhabitants, art enthusiasts and passers-by during the month of August, Canadian artist Terence Koh’s Bee Chapel HafenCity moved from the Störtebeker Ufer to the rooftop of the Ecumenical Forum Hafencity. After recovering in a protected place during wintertime, the bees are returning back to the Bee Chapel on May 18, where the installation will open again for visitors.

Backdrop Gerrit Frohne-Brinkmann

Art despite the crisis: Why not pep up your daily walk by dropping by the underground car park at Sandtorkai, either on your own or with a friend/partner, on foot or by car? On display there from April 17 is the sculpture entitled Backdrop by Gerrit Frohne-Brinkmann, which draws our gaze away from everyday life on land and directs it at the oldest marine life forms ever to have existed.

Ship of Dreams Curated by Ellen Blumenstein & Sebastian Quack

Together with a team of artists from Hamburg, Sebastian Quack is currently studying the emotive proximity with historical or fictional seafaring material in order to transpose the existential conflicts they address into the present and relate it to quotidian life as we experience it today.

Zero Shift Kapwani Kiwanga 

Uncovering the Unknown - Kapwani Kiwanga's new project aims at highlighting exemplary elements that structure public space but often go unnoticed by the very people who use them. Working with the means of colour, light or other temporary interventions in the urban infrastructure, the Canadian artist develops a site-specific installation that deals with the quay walls between the historical centre, Speicherstadt and Hafencity.
