German women artists exhibit in Malta

An exhibition entitled Skripturale was inaugurated last week by German Ambassador Bend Braun at Messina Palace, the premises of the German-Maltese Circle in St Christopher Street, Valletta.

Skripturale is a collective exhibition by 16 members of the Bonn branch of Gedok, an association of women artists in Germany.

The exhibition’s aim is to show the permanent artistic values of written elements, symbols, signs, characters, and letters despite the general contemporary trend towards digitalisation, as the leader of the group, Clotilde Lafont-König, pointed out.

Ingrid Kidder, president of the German-Maltese Circle, welcomed the Gedok ladies and the numerous guests and recalled that Gedok Bonn had held a successful exhibition in 1999 at the German-Maltese Circle. One of the participating artists, Milena Kunz-Bijno (wife of then German Ambassador to Malta Gerhard Kunz), actually took part in both events.

This essentially very pleasing exhibition, which has already been shown in Bonn, Cologne, Paris and Rome, is a special contribution to the celebrations marking the 20th anniversary of the Deutsch-Maltesische Gesellschaft, the German-Maltese Circle’s counterpart in Germany, as was pointed out by its president, Christian Launer, a dedicated promoter of German-Maltese friendship and cultural cooperation.
