A group of 17 students and alumni of the Academy of Visual Arts of Hong Kong Baptist University were invited to exhibit their works from 5 January to 15 January 2018 at the Kunstquartier Bethanien Berlin, one of the most important venues for contemporary arts in Germany, under the theme "Weight Watcher".

Exhibition "Weight Watcher"
Exhibition period:
5-15 January 2018 (opening at 18.00 on 5 January)
12.00 - 18.00
Kunstquartier Bethanien, Mariannenplatz 2, 10997 Berlin

The exhibition centres on the idea of weight watching on an international, political and social level. Supported by the Consulate General, the exhibition presents the works of 17 emerging artists from Hong Kong whose intended interventions are forced to contend with the limits imposed by a weight watcher's world. The artists' visions are realised through their personal and collective experiences of life lived in relation to self and power, and reflect their responsibility towards a shared future.

The artists' works comprise diverse media sharing an interest in interaction, forming points of entry into a conversation on art engaging artist, curator and audience.  

The exhibition is the outcome of the fourth IAM International Art Movement workshop, organised by German artists and curators Martin Müller and Anne Müller and launched at the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University in summer 2017. The exhibition's collective curation is testimony to the training provided through the workshop.
