Wild Summer of Art
12 July - 25 August 2024

Brutus Space presents the 2nd edition of a Wild Summer of Art featuring work by 50 Rotterdam-based contemporary artists and a dynamic public program of events, screenings and performances. This year's edition is guest-curated by Amira Gad in collaboration with Sophie de Vos.

Anne Wenzel presents the site-specific installation Under Construction (Brutus). The installation consists of painted banners, female busts and stacked architectural elements. Reminiscent of street barricades, Wenzel’s work appropriates the formal language of protest and stages a state of temporary occupation while alluding to the dethroning of an established order for the sake of a new one.
Wenzel has conceived Under Construction (Brutus) with the wish to question the possibility of a female stance on political power and hierarchy as a counter response to male-dominated power.

Anne Wenzel in Podcast
Kunst is Lang

During one hour host Luuk Heezen talked with artist Anne Wenzel about House of Fools, her series of sculptures, which were on display last year in the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam. Half-destroyed statues of former 'heroes, such as J.P. Coen or Witte de With. The installation was part of her Carte Blanche (Fuck The Dictator) project, which Wenzel received after winning a boxing match against the former director.
In addition they talked about the Razziamonument which Wenzel accomplished last year. The two statues of a man and a woman at the Maas in Rotterdam form the monument for the raid in November 1944, where 52.000 men were taken from their homes and were forced to labour in Germany.

House of Fools (Witte) is purchased by Museum Boijmans van Beuningen!

The sculpture of the naval officer Witte Corneliszoon de With belongs to the series House of Fools. In response to the contemporary iconoclasm that has taken place in recent years where statues were thrown from their pedestals, damaged or defaced, Anne Wenzel created the series House of Fools. The artist faced an ambiguous debate: the fact that these days works made by colleague sculptors from the past are being destroyed and the necessity of political protest.

Wenzel felt that some nuance was missing. Without searching for an answer to the question of who is / was 'good' or 'bad', Wenzel created the space-filling installation House of Fools, featuring busts of controversial figures from history.
Witte de With is not only known for his heroic exploits at sea, but also for the brutal oppression and colonial violence that earned him this title. The City of Rotterdam is home to a famous street named after him, as well as the Grote Kerk (St. Lawrence Church), where his body was buried.

Given this context, we are very proud that curator Saskia van Kampen-Prein has acquired Anne Wenzel’s work House of Fools (Witte) for Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen's modern and contemporary art collection.

Documentary Wenzel Vecht on
Open Rotterdam!

Wenzel Vecht by director Charlotte Meijer can now be seen at Open Rotterdam. This documentary powerfully portrays the motivations of the Rotterdam artist Anne Wenzel. Meijer meets the artist when she starts sculpting the Razzia Monument (2023) and becomes intrigued. We first see Wenzel throwing the clay on the floor of her studio, the starting of a sculpture that will be at least four meters high, which grows slowly under the hands of Wenzel and her team.

1 - 4 February 2024

Akinci presents, next to others, new works by Anne Wenzel, such as Reality Check (East Germany), among others at Art Rotterdam. Reliefs, which are positioned between sculpture and painting and are part of a tradition of a visual language used to tell heroic stories. Reliefs are usually located on the wall, but Wenzel places them in space, close to the ground, based on the idea that this is where the uprising arises. The representations that can be seen on the reliefs in combination with the thick, shiny, colorful glaze make it seem as if the statues are in full motion.

Anne Wenzel - House of Fools
20 January - 2 March 2024

In the solo exhibition 'House of Fools' by Anne Wenzel, AKINCI presents a major part of the series of sculptures that Wenzel made for her solo exhibition Carte Blanche (Fuck The Dictator) in the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam.

In response to the contemporary iconoclasm that has happened in recent years where statues were thrown from their pedestals, damaged or defaced, Anne Wenzel created the new series House of Fools. Busts of politically controversial figures from history, which Wenzel allows to tower above the people. Partly destroyed, the sculptures give the impression that they have been attacked by termites and are rotting from the inside.
As an opposite to the representation of political power, Wenzel developed the series Reality Check, in which ceramic half-reliefs show scenes of collective uprising and archetypes of protests: the power of people.

The resistance from the past that resonates in the works of Anne Wenzel in the House of Fools exhibition is reflected in the present. Without searching for the answer to the question of who was right, Wenzel broadens the perspective by subtly drawing attention to the other side of the heroic stories.


Finissage & Public evaluation
Carte Blanche (Fuck The Dictator)
13 + 14 January 2024

In Carte Blanche (Fuck the Dictator) Anne Wenzel gives central importance to the art, the artist's vision – not to the institution and its interests. What happens when political agendas and external interests no longer influence the display – and therefore the perception - of art?

This Carte Blanche goes beyond being an exhibition. It poses questions about the role and meaning of art, but also about the way in which the museum presents art to the public, by means of gallery texts, education and marketing. Where Carte Blanche crosses these boundaries is where things get tricky. For that means daring to take risks, especially when the outcome isn't yet clear beforehand. Artists are used to taking risks. But to what degree are institutions prepared to do so?
To organize groundbreaking projects, one needs to be capable of thinking and working innovatively. Also in terms of budgeting. To what extent does the museum system allow that?

January 13 and 14 is the last weekend of Carte Blanche (Fuck The Dictator). Time for a festive finissage and a public evaluation of this special project.

Pebbles – reflecting to navigate
24 November 2023 - 13 January 2024

In the popular story of the Grimm Brothers, the two main characters Hans and Gretel leave a trail of pebbles as they walk. Later, when night has fallen and the moonlight reflects on these pebbles, they hope to find their way back home.
As we approach the end of the year in their final exhibition in 2023, AKINCI shines a light on the past to explore paths that have brought them to where they are today.

Inauguration Razziamonument Rotterdam 10 November 2023

On Friday, November 10, the Razzia monument was unveiled by Mayor Aboutaleb at the Parkkade in Rotterdam. Visual artist Anne Wenzel designed the monument, which focuses on unity and division. The statue consists of a man and a woman placed at a distance from each other. The figures were once one whole, but were separated by the raid.

During her opening speech, Anne Wenzel said:
"Where the two human figures once touched each other, two large wounds became visible. It is good that these wounds are now finally visible - even though it hurts. You have to be able to see wounds in order to heal them.
You cannot see these wounds always. Sometimes you have to change your position. Just step aside. But once you have seen them, you will never forget them."
"This man and this woman give a face to all the victims of the raid. Behind the anonymous numbers of victims are people. Individuals. People who had to learn to live with their wounds after the war. Wounds that do not simply disappear. Wounds that are often even passed on from generation to generation. Political circumstances that affect the personal determines, makes and breaks people's lives.

War has no winners,
War has only losers.

Especially at a time like this, where war is coming so close to us again, we must never forget that war starts with polarization, with language, with the exclusion of 'the other'. This monument does the opposite. It brings people together. It makes an immense, forgotten chapter visible – and places it at the center of the lives of the people of Rotterdam.

Installation Razziamonument
3 November 2023

Over the past two years, Anne Wenzel and her team worked on the Razziamonument. After an intense time of work, the Razziamonument was finally installed at the Parkkade in Rotterdam.
On 10 and 11 November 1944, the Nazis, meticulously prepared and unexpectedly, deported 52.000 men between the ages of 17 and 40 from Rotterdam and Schiedam. Most of them were taken to Germany as forced laborers. They had to leave their loved ones behind in fear and uncertainty for months. More than 500 men did not survive.

With the Razziamonument, Rotterdam will have a permanent place where there is room for commemoration and gathering. The location on the Parkkade is central to the places where te men were brought together for transport, mainly to Germany.
Anne Wenzel got the commission by Stichting Razzia Monument Rotterdam. the proces was supervised by BKOR, CBK Rotterdam.

Crowdfunding Carte Blanche (Fuck The Dictator) -The Publication started!

Under the slogan “Fuck The Dictator,” Anne Wenzel stepped into the boxing ring in 2019 at the invitation of the director of the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam. For her as an artist, this was an unique opportunity to finally stand on equal footing with a director. In the boxing ring, she fought for nothing less than the autonomy of art versus the power of cultural institutions. After three rounds, Anne Wenzel won Carte Blanche at the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam. To reveal the entire underlying process of Carte Blanche, it is necessary to guard them in this publication.

2 September - 14 October 2023

In her solo-exhibition at Galerie Suzanne Tarasieve, Anne Wenzel will present sculptures uit her recent series House of Fools and Reality Check. House of Fools consists of ceramic male busts in dark and golden hues placed on plinths and construction elements of the same colours and material. Faces are undone, forms are dissolving as if subjected to gravity; glory is in ruins. As contrapost, the ceramic reliefs of the series Reality Check depict scenes of state violence, riots and street demonstrations by means of abstraction. Drawing from images of protests browsed on the internet or sourced in books and newspapers, Wenzel provides various historical upheavals with a timeless and universal character.

Marie-Louise is baptized
8 July 2023

In the context of Carte Blanche, Wenzel has produced a ceramic sculpture that features a female bust wearing boxing gloves and a boxing robe with a hood that is reminiscent of a veil. This boxing Madonna, which the artist has donated to the boxing school in appreciation of their contribution to the project, reinterprets the sculptures of saints endowed with a protective function in the Catholic tradition. Resonating with Hans de Jong’s wish to create a school where all are welcome, Wenzel’s female patron will take care of the place and its users on literal and metaphorical levels. On 21st May 2023, the boxing Madonna found a permanent home above the school’s boxing ring where, not so long ago, a museum director and an artist fought against each other. The sculpture that became part of a site-specific installation was baptized by Hans de Jong and Anne Wenzel on the openings day, when the territory of Carte Blanche starts welcoming the public.

Anne Wenzel - Carte Blanche (Fuck The Dictator)
8 July 2023 - 14 January 2024

In February 2019, Stedelijk Museum Schiedam’s former director Deirdre Carasso invited Anne Wenzel to step in a boxing ring with her. Wenzel never had boxed before, but accepted the challenge on the condition that the museum gives “carte blanche” to her if she wins the fight. Both trained intensively during several months at Boxingschool de Jong with trainers Hans de Jong and Bob van der Vlist. On 14th September 2019, the match took place in front of an audience on a boxing ring installed for the occasion in the museum’s chapel. Designed by Nada van Dalen, Anne Wenzel's boxing outfit featured an emblem representing her sculpting tools and the slogan “FUCK THE DICTATOR”. After three round Wenzel won the fight. Shortly after, Wenzel invited Selen Ansen, curator at Arter in Istanbul, Turkey, to join in the Carte Blanche (Fuck The Dictator) - project and collaborate with her.

For Anne Wenzel, the boxing fight is a metaphor for the combat between two positions on the place of art in society and the role of art institutions. She was fighting for the autonomy of art against its cultural and social instrumentalisation. Carte Blanche (Fuck the Dictator) is both an outcome and an extension of this fight. As an act of repair, it intends to put the art centre stage and bring the artworks into the place where, in her view, they should be welcomed and public in their own right.

Carte Blanche will combine several new immersive installations with existing works, in and outside the museum, as well as in the Boxingschool de Jong. But Carte Blanche does not stop there. It disturbs the entire communication around the project: the texts, the visual communication, marketing, education and more.
Carte Blanche reminds us that the boundaries between to fight against and to fight for are tenuous; that beauty may arise from violence and disorder; that values, ideologies or systems once praised may collapse and perish like anything else.

The results of his project will be brought together in a publication end of the year.

Toucher Terre - La sculpture céramique
14 April - 17 december 2023

In an exhibition space committed to contemporary sculpture and through the artworks of the Villa Datris Foundation, Toucher Terre brings together more than 50 ceramic artworks by French and international artists on the theme of Earth. The discovery of the material plunges us into a primitive forest sheltering various animal and plant species—creatures inspired by nature, mythology and folktales. From the bowels of the Earth as archaeological witness of our civilization, to the intimacy of the workshop where accident/control, chance/luck reign, ceramics reveals its strengths and weaknesses.

Anne Wenzel started with the production of the Monument for Raid in Rotterdam

Anne Wenzel has started with the production of the two meter-high figures, a man and a woman. More than 8,000 kilograms of clay will be needed. Building and breaking up go hand in hand, beauty and destruction meet. These qualities are important for a monument that wants to commemorate an almost forgotten and repressed traumatic event.
The draft by Anne Wenzel was unanimously chosen from a long list. During the annual commemoration of the raid in 2021, the initiators presented the draft, which was unveiled by Mayor Aboutaleb. Anne Wenzel works in close contact with the initiators Stichting Razzia Monument Rotterdam, Bkor and the municipality on the realization of the monument, which will be placed on the Parkkade in Rotterdam in November 2023.

25 August - 9 October 2022

DIRTY WORK is an exhibition of contemporary ceramic practice co-curated by William Cobbing and The Art Station.
DIRTY WORK presents a diverse range of ceramic works from sculpture to video, which push the boundaries of the medium in a subversive way. The visceral characteristics of the clay catch the work in a state of flux, or in a state of shed or metamorphosis. The ambiguous nature of the work allows the viewer to decipher forms that seem part alien, animal or vegetable. The artists play with the base materiality of clay in a direct, sensual and often humorous way.
DIRTY WORK will include artworks by Clare Twomey, Nicholas Pope, Anne Wenzel, Ryan Gander and Linda Sormin, Markus Karstieß and more as well as performances by William Cobbing.

Against Nature
21 May - 4 September 2022

Against Nature is an exhibition inhabited by insolent, hybrid shapes made of clay and enamel, such grotesque creatures compose a luxuriant, original, mysterious, troubling, or even hallucinatory world. Nature is artifice, and artifice becomes nature in order to decategorize scales and values, as well as to reverse commonplaces regarding sculpture and the ceramic tradition. The works gathered concern ceramics less as folklore than as modeling and alchemy, technique, and magic. Water, earth, and fire are the essential, unrivaled components of these new worlds: « What we call against nature is in fact against custom. » (Montaigne)

With works by Salvatore Arancio, Johan Creten, Roberto Cuoghi, Michel Gouéry, Takuro Kuwata, Claire Lindner, Sterling Ruby, Elsa Sahal, Katrina Schneider, Elmar Trenkwalder, Tamara Van San and many more.

Museum Het Valkhof acquires installation Under Construction

Two monumental female busts, several ceramic cubes and a mural by Anne Wenzel will become part of the collection of Museum Het Valkhof. The museum is the first museum which acquires an installation of Anne Wenzel.
The ceramic female busts of the installation Under Construction are tortured and covered with a layer of paint. But if you take a closer look, you will recognize the scratched slogans 'I Am My Own Prophet" and 'Don't Fear Freedom'. They are an ode to the woman fighting for her rights in a fight which is still 'under construction'.

Anne Wenzel in the Volkskrant
1 July 2021

Stefan Kuiper talked with Anne Wenzel about her Bacon Project on the occasion of her exhibition at AKINCI in Amsterdam. During the first lockdown, Anne Wenzel started to re-build paintings by Francis Bacon accurately. In the beginning she just used clay, but soon more technical solutions had to be found. She learned how to enamel, how to weld. She tried to drip silk in silicone. She did for weeks research to find the right colors in glaze which would match with the paintings of Bacon and she fought against gravity.
At the end she made twelve little, ceramic installations. But the most important result was the research itself. The lessons she learned, taught by the paintings of Francis Bacon.

Anne Wenzel in NRC Handelsblad
1 April 2021

Thomas van Huut talked with Anne Wenzel in her studio about her Bacon project. Since the first lockdown she started to translate the paintings of Francis Bacon into small ceramic sculptures. It is a research project which aim to push her own boundaries. She was already for years intrigued y the work of Francis Bacon. Now, during the first lockdown, she finally found time to start with it.

Thomas van Huut visited her for NRC newspaper while she was in the middle of the process. Many questions were still unanswered. Plenty of choices still had to been taken. And than there was also the massive problem of gravity...

The long closure of museums is an unacceptable situation, therefor art-critic Lucette ter Borg and Anne Wenzel took the initiatief to write a petition. The even longer closure will irreparably damage the art-sector. The closure of exhibition spaces means destruction of resources, both in a material and immaterial sense. Artists are losing their market, art professionals are losing their work, the art public (young and old) is losing sight of a different perspective. Through time slots, regulating visitor flows and ventilating the halls, museums can open safely according to the rules of the RIVM (National Institute for Health and Environment).

Therefor museums and institutes need to reopen their doors to the public as soon as possible. This allows artists and art professionals to finally do their work again and art to be seen by everyone.

Sign the petition and share it!

Monument for Freedom
10 July 2020

Commissioned by the City of 's-Hertogenbosch Anne Wenzel worked for the last six years on the Monument for Freedom situated on the Anne Frankplein. The main question for her was: what does freedom mean? Not just for Anne Frank, but also for us today.
Right in the middle of the square Anne Wenzel made a high pillar with a large, majestueuze bird on top. It is made of ceramics, glazed with bright colors. Besides this sculpture, Anne Wenzel designed for the first time the whole square. She created benches and a wall for commemoration with on top tiles referring to the diary of Anne Frank. The Anne Frankplein became a place not just for commemoration, but also a place where people can meet.

The commission was generously supported by the Mondriaan Fonds and the Buurtcultuurfonds Provincie Noord-Brabant.

Anne Wenzel, 2000 kilos of clay
Quarantaine Podcast Sessions

Anne Wenzel talks in the Quarantaine Podcast Session organized by AKINCI over the impact of Corona on artists. About the importance of imagination and the possibilities hidden in 2000 kilos of clay. But also about silence in empty musea and the sadness of artworks who cannot be seen in times like this.

Les Pays-Bas, l'autre pays de Beaux-Arts
11 April - 28 June 2020

Due to the government-imposed measures to prevent for Corona is this exhibition cancelled.

Owing to the weight of this past, along with the effects of European integration and The Netherland’s position as a crossroads in the economic heartland of Europe, the contemporary Dutch artistic scene gets lost in a larger picture that blurs its contours for those outside of artworld circles. But while artistic creation in The Netherlands is in tune with European trends that transcend national borders, we can still discern singular features, in the treatment of space and light, or the persistence of historical themes or forms.
The exhibition will offer a selective panorama of contemporary creation in The Netherlands through the works of some thirty visual artists, including a site-specific intervention by Krijn de Koning.
With works by Elspeth Diederix, Rineke Dijkstra, Marcel van Eeden, David Jablonowski, Folkert de Jong, Natasja Kensmil,Krijn de Koning, Katinka Lampe, Mark Manders, Lily van der Stokker, Marijke van Warmerdam, Anne Wenzel, Guido van der Werve, Robert Zandvliet, Edwin Zwakman and many more.

18 December 20190 - 01 February 2020

From time immemorial, meaning since cave art, the blood of fighters have flown with paint. We are not talking about the Massacre of the Innocents in which one side does not fight back and just plays the victim; but real fight, soldiers and armies against each other. Battlefields. We are talking about War; that which used to have the face of a man, often a very young man, as if to sing the glory of armies, make up gods to tame people’s reluctance to do what leaders told them to: take up arms. For centuries, artists have served wars waged in the name of God, kings, cities, castles or their own tribe, often with little attention paid to casualties, blood and death. But only to represent war for itself, rage and brutality, the carnage behind the faces of the innocent armored young men scattered across the history of painting.

Anne Wenzel beats director
Deirdre Carasso
14th September 2019

In February 2019 Deirdre Carasso, director of the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam asked Anne Wenzel if she want to fight against her a proper boxing fight right in the middle of the museum. Wenzel loved to watch boxing but never ever practiced it by herself. Besides that she believes that a museum should not ask an artist to fight in a boxing match, but should invite her for an exhibition. She accepted - under the condition that she gets Carte Blanche in case she will win. After months of intens training in the Boxingschool de Haan in Schiedam, the two woman faced each other in the ring.
Wenzel won.
The rest is history.

Chambre(s) d' Amour
Biennale d' Art Contemporain
24 June - 4 November 2018

Richard Leydier, curator of the Biennale d' Art Contemporain d' Anglet invited 11 international artist to give their view on the subject of 'love' in an an infinite number of very different realities, from a teenage idyll on a summer beach to the most vibrant, tragic passion. The works will be installed at the rough coast of the Atlantic Ocean.
Anne Wenzel will build up right on the rocks at the beach a more than monumental pieta. Anne Wenzel reinterprets the pieta in raw clay, but rather than giving us to see an afflicted mother's sorrow for her son, her emphasis is on the universal power of compassion, more specifically our capacity for empathy in front of a drama unfolding before our eyes as this fragile sculpture gradually disintegrates, a metaphor for our contemporary world and its growing emotional deficit.

C'est le Bouquet!

The Fondation Bernardaud is presenting seventeen international artists, inspired by the floral theme, that have elected to work in ceramics, most of whom have never exhibited in France. In all cultures, flowers are present in the transactions between the living and the dead, between humans and divinities, and many different meanings are assigned to them. For the artist, the floral theme offers an inexhaustible repertory to address topical issues, whether defending endangered biodiversity or denouncing forms of domination.
The broad spectrum of ideas expressed in this exhibition demonstrates that this ancient, timeless theme has an amazing ability to regenerate itself.

Documentary 'Re-defining Balance (as a matter of fact)' on Arttube

The last nine years, Anne Wenzel was working on the eight meter high fountain for the courthouse in Zwolle. The sculpture is not only unique in scale, but also in terms of its nature as well as in the use of the materials concrete and ceramics. For more than four years, film maker Marieke van der Lippe follows the develop-ment of the sculpture meticulously. The coming about of such a large and monumental sculpture requires an enormous commit-ment of everybody involved; not only in terms of know-how, but also in terms of perseverance and patience. The film shows the battle with the material and the victory thereon.

With Bas Jan Ader, Phyllida Barlow, Cyprien Gaillard, Ryan Gander, Mikhail Karikis & Uriel Orlow, Void and Anne Wenzel

Night Falls, Day Breaks

Departing from the historical iconography of commemoration and of the memorial, Wenzel interrogates art historical and political themes through her unorthodox use of that most primal and traditional of materials - clay. Deeply interested in the language of 'heroism' these artworks question the manipulative narrative of nationalist architecture and sculpture. Wenzel simultaneously appropriates and re-interprets the value of the symbolic in new forms which are resonant with contemporary political and civic challenges.
The exhibition has a certain critical and thematic resonance with other cultural and civic activities which will take place this year in Northern Ireland and in the Republic of Ireland. Specifically, events which are part of what has been termed the 'Decade of Centenaries' that begins with the centenaries of the Easter Rising in Dublin

Beyond Context
Charlotte Schleiffert & Anne Wenzel

In the duo show Beyond Context, AKINCI unites two artists who's work cannot be taken lightly. A certain violence applies to both, each drawn to the subject in her own distinct manner. Where Anne Wenzel (1972, Schlüttorf, DE) fearlessly diverts the tradition of ceramics into remarkable sculptures with a brutal sense of decay, Charlotte Schleiffert (1967, Tilburg, NL) addresses crude social themes with a discomforting elegance in a range of mixed media on canvas. Rather than a dialogue, their individual voices clash and confront one another, challenging the viewer to rethink their spectacle and, instead, become sensible to the pressing subjects that linger beyond.
