The »99 HOPES« exhibition is a homage to our hopes and dreams we are free to have also during difficult times. In a variety of works as paintings and sculptures the artist Silke Lapina is using elements of popculture and refers to various theologians such as Meister Eckhart and Martin Buber. The abstract paintings include thoughts and scribbles from popsongs and theological concepts. The artist explores questions on spirituality and tranformation in contemporary society and also the varieties of religious experiences.
