In a tour through the only original preserved Stasi prison in Saxony it can be reconstructed how the state repressive apparatus tried to eliminate its political opponents. The exhibition and impressive recordings in the former office of the Dresden Stasi chief show the everyday life of the security service. This density of historical spaces, combined with interactive exhibitions and eyewitness accounts, is unique in Germany.

The intervention of the OSTRALE Biennale O19 in the Bautzner Strasse memorial extends across the foyer, the Sowietische Haftkeller, the Stasi remand prison, the lounge for female prisoners and the Stasi festival hall. 15 artistic positions by contemporary international artists stand in opposition to the historical reference of the place and complement this year's theme "ismus" to grasp the current significance of the perception of the past in the future.

Artists: Rolf Blume (DE), Gilbert Brohl (DE), Eisengraf (DE), Csaba Fürjesi (HU, AT), Urban Grünfelder (IT, AT), Jürgen Höritzsch (DE), Di Hu (CN), Musquiqui Chihying (TW) & Gregor Kasper (DE), Tobias Köbsch (DE), Lena Lapschina (AT), Alex Lebus (DE), Dorota Nieznalska (PL), Pierre Portelli (MT), Adnan Softic (MK, DE)

Within the framework of the OSTRALE Biennale O19, our cooperation with the Goethe Institut Dresden concentrates on the project "WomanIsm" funded by the TURN Fund of the German Federal Cultural Foundation. German female artists are brought into discourse with African female artists on the topic of promoting and strengthening the rights of women in art. WomanIsm focuses on art as a means of communication, as provocation, as mediation, as a translation of and for social tensions and processes.

The OSTRALE programme at the Goethe-Institut Dresden focuses on works on the theme of WomanIsm and juxtapositions of positions of international artists who deal with the focus on Africa and the prevailing problems of globalisation there, such as migration, human rights or the environment.

Artists: Patrick Fenech (MT), go plastic (DE), Frenzy Höhne (DE), Immy Mali (UG,NL), Usha Seejarim (ZA), Andre Wagner (DE)

The Ausländerrat Dresden e.V., founded in 1990, represents the interests of people with migration and flight experience in Dresden. The aim of its work is to promote their cultural, social and political integration and to strengthen their self-representation. The International Meeting Centre (IBZ) is the headquarters of the management and houses a counselling centre for people with migration and flight experience and rooms for children, youth, family and educational work.

On the ground floor of the IBZ there are exhibition rooms which the OSTRALE Biennale O19 presents discursively for juxtapositions of European and African artists on the themes of migration and WomanIsm. At a place of intercultural dialogue, it shows works and raises questions that arise from the visitors and users of the house.
Artists: Sonia E Barrett (JM, DE, GB), Katerina Belkina (RU, DE), Rehema Chachage (TZ), Annika Grabold (DE), Nancy Mteki (ZW, DE), Anastasia Obaregbe (DE), Iwona Rozbiewska (PL), Usha Seejarim (ZA), Enriqué Tabone (MT), Ad van Aart (NL)

An artistic cast could be called what happened in the spring of 1991 in the Loschwitz district of Dresden. On the initiative of Gudrun Oltmanns, several artists and graduates of the Kunsthochschule came together to occupy the building of the former fire brigade and pursue the goal of realizing various art forms and cultural projects. To this day, the Alte Feuerwache has developed into a popular contact point for professional and amateur artists, children and district residents.

As a decentralized exhibition space of the OSTRALE Biennale O19, the works shown are not only connected with the beautiful, natural surroundings of the Alte Feuerwache, but also with its original function as an institution for disaster prevention. They question the relationship between man and nature, the disasters we can inflict on our environment and our fellow human beings, and our attempts to take action against self-inflicted accidents.

Since the beginning of the nineties, art exhibitions have been held at SAP's headquarters in Walldorf, which have been enthusiastically received. In the summer of 2012, the first SAP art exhibition was opened in Dresden and made accessible to the interested public. The good response within SAP and the public interested in art beyond the borders of the city of Dresden encouraged the founders to continue their commitment in the name of art and the promotion of art.

art'SAP Dresden combines unique and generous architecture with contemporary art and presents in the framework of the OSTRALE Biennale O19 a solo exhibition of the Belgian artist Mark Swysen, which touches on our most urgent fears, dreams and questions such as evolution, artificial intelligence and their possible effects on our human civilization.

Artist: Mark Swysen (BE)


The artistic Concept was realized by the Curators Syowia Kyambi (Kenia), Drorit Gur Arie (Israel), Toni Sant (Malta/England), Yik Chow (Hongkong) and Antka Hofmann (Germany) together with the Artistic Director of the OSTRALE Andrea Hilger (Germany).

Die OSTRALE is funded by the provincial capital Dresden, the exhibitional focus "WomanIsm" is funded by the TURN Fund of the German Federal Cultural Foundation, the „all sense app" is funded by AKTION Mensch,
