The solo show “Wanted Witches – Witches Wanted“ by Berlin based urban artist duo Various & Gould contains a portrait series of 13 known, living and nonconformist people who cross borders and act as pioneers on controversial social issues. The idea that these people might have been persecuted and burned as witches in earlier times is a mere speculation. The fact that they still have to fight for their ideas, freedom, dignity or even their lives, is the sad truth.

For the portraits a particular ink was used allowing – as if by witchcraft – the ignition of matches on the actual artworks. By using these matches and candles the observers are encouraged to get involved with the image.

Many thanks to Anne Wizorek for her introduction speech at the exhibition opening!
