You know I'm an artist, I have to be free! – Photography by Daniela Müller-Brunke, Solo Show More Is More, Berlin

Dear donors and sponsors,

Below you’ll find four donation packages that will allow me to have Liebeslied Chemnitz-Tel Aviv completed in a printed version. All packages include acknowledgement of the donor by full name. If you don’t wish to be mentioned by name, or would like to purchase artwork other than the suggested packages, please contact me by email: ivonne@ivonnedippmann.eu. My aim is to cover final proofreading, lithography, additional work for translation, graphic design and the final printing process.

For me, Liebeslied Chemnitz-Tel Aviv is a fluid body of work that connects me to my roots; to my childhood in the former GDR, to the history of my family and its places, and to the path I chose to grow and develop in Tel Aviv, Israel. One might say „what an odd combination“, but when you do all the research and put pieces of the story together, you will find amazing depth of content shared by both cities and their people.

I was very delighted when Chemnitz was announced as Capital of Culture 2025. What a beautiful achievement. Liebeslied Chemnitz-Tel Aviv has, at its heart, a different, personal narrative of Karl-Marx-Stadt/Chemnitz, as opposed to a preconceived judgement about life in the former GDR. I am very grateful for my family, for growing up in my home town and for being unconditionally protected everywhere on this planet, especially as a non-Jew in Israel.

With this at heart, I sincerely wish for your support in sharing my thoughts, research and personal insights with you and the world. Thank you in advance.

Ivonne

Heimatgeschichte (origins)
Flechtwerk als Erzählteppich (interlace as a storytelling tapestry)

Vor ein paar Jahren ging ein Freund meiner Familie in den Ruhestand, nachdem er sein ganzes Berufsleben in der ehemaligen DDR und später in ganz Deutschland als Textilhändler gearbeitet hatte. Rentner zu werden bedeutete auch, dass er mit einer verrückten Menge an Textilmustern zurückblieb, die er seinen Kunden saisonal präsentierte. Das bedeutete, unterwegs zu sein und mit dem Auto von Haus zu Haus zu fahren. Natürlich wurde jede Saison eine neue Kollektion produziert, die verkauft werden musste. Da ich eine Vorliebe für Textilien und Upcycling habe, fragte ich, ob ich eine Auswahl von Mustern für meine Kunstwerke haben könnte. Ich erhielt sechs große Kisten, vollgepackt mit einer wahnsinnigen Vielfalt an Materialien, Farben, Texturen und Verwendungsmöglichkeiten. Bis zu diesem Jahr waren diese Kisten in meinem Atelier gelagert.

Ich habe eine Weile gebraucht, um sie zu bearbeiten, zu ordnen und mit ihnen zu arbeiten. Wie bei jedem neuen Material muss man es verstehen und Zeit investieren, um zu begreifen, wie man es verwenden und miteinander kombinieren kann. Ich begann mit sehr einfachen und reinen Bildern und fügte im Laufe des Arbeitsprozesses Tinte und Acrylfarben hinzu, um eine größere Tiefe und Intensität zu erreichen. Die Edition ist ein fortlaufender Entwicklungsprozess, der je nach den räumlichen Gegebenheiten meiner Kunden unterschiedliche Größen und Formate vorsieht. Anbei finden Sie eine Auswahl an Mustern, die Sie online erwerben können.

A few years ago, a friend of my family retired after working all his professional life as a textile merchant in the former GDR and later all over Germany. Becoming a retiree also meant that he was left with a crazy amount of textile samples that he presented to his customers seasonally. This meant being on the road and driving from house to house. Of course, every season a new collection was produced that had to be sold. Having a passion for textiles and upcycling, I asked if I could have a selection of the fabrics for my artwork. I received six large boxes packed with an insane variety of materials, colour, textures and uses. Until this year, these boxes were being stored in my studio.

It took me a while to arrange, categorize and start working with them. As with any new material, I needed to understand it first and spend time in figuring out how to use it and combine it with each other. I started with very simple and pure pieces of imagery. In the progression of the work, I added ink and acrylics to achieve greater depth and intensity. The edition is an ongoing development process, creating different sizes and formats depending on the space of my clients. Enclosed you will find a selection of patterns that you can purchase online.

04/22 Drawings, Earth without heroes

Apr 3, 12:57 by Ivonne Dippmann

Ivonne Dippmann WV 2008 001 – 003

Earth without heroes

From a series of 8 drawings
Ink and crayons on copper paper
30 cm x 40 cm, unframed

Jerusalem 2008
 

Earth without heroes – I erase you in the darkness in the corners of my mind (top), Criminal in your prayer (bottom)

Earth without heroes consists of a series of eight drawings that I created during transitioning from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv in 2008/2009. The series is based on a 100-part cycle, Playtime, that was created over three months in my studio on Mount Scopus in Jerusalem. The work was made at the time of the Gaza war in winter of 2008, when I had just started my Master’s year in Bezalel. During the war I withdrew into myself, both locally and spiritually.

My studio allowed me the much-needed space to bring all thoughts that rushed through me directly to paper. The format of my feelings ranged between A3 and A4. Every day I chose a new theme; from architecture to movement, sports, love or fear. My protagonists and I joined forces and they followed me to Tel Aviv for the next two years. Earth without heroes was the last cycle of this kind. It was exhibited at Barbour Gallery in Jerusalem and remained in Tel Aviv for seven years after I moved back to Berlin. Five of these eight works have so far found their place in private collections with the silent condition of being able to stay here in Israel.

02/22 Paintings, Crab Nebula

Feb 23, 11:24 by Ivonne Dippmann

Ivonne Dippmann WV 2022 001 – 006

„Tau A“ redirects here. For the τ\t statistic, see tau-a.
Right ascension 5h 34m 32s | Declination +22° 0′ 52″

Crab Nebula is a venturous world that I created based on an upcoming music album by the Israeli singer, songwriter and composer Daniel Dor while spending winter with my family in Chemnitz. High-spirited and adventuresome, I threw myself into a magical saga of boiled crushed herbs and eminent forefathers for two months.

Scientifically speaking; Crab Nebula is a supernova remnant and pulsar wind nebula in the constellation of Taurus. The common name comes from William Parsons, 3rd Earl of Rosse, who observed the object in 1842 using a 36-inch (91 cm) telescope and produced a drawing that looked somewhat like a crab. The nebula was discovered by English astronomer John Bevis in 1731, and it corresponds with a bright supernova recorded by Chinese astronomers in 1054. The nebula was the first astronomical object identified that corresponds with a historical supernova explosion.

At a count of five,
I jumped off my horse and stared into a black crater, which consists, in large measures of material „not his own“. I could only guess its life, strivings and sorrows, since moon took over a month already. How I missed sun these days! In the search of „being“ and „true love“ I jumped; – against law, against nature, against origin, studies and needs – into an open wound of only emptiness. The greatest length of time I submerged into shades of gray. I thought of school and asking my teacher for directions to inner freedom. With enjoyment, I have been offered a mango fruit instead.

They say a persons being consists of two parts: essence and personality. Both, puzzled and magnetized between „yes“ and „no“, were now obtained by fusion qualities in a galactic Super Nova. On the evolutionary ladder, always thinking center, I became witness of the minutest details, that will later be documented as Crab Nebula, Tauri M1. I folded my hands and whispered silently „I want to remember myself.“, knowing we must die all at once and forever. Yet, God put me to sleep in the forest of disillusionment to receive the truth and helped me realize that I am a fool.

I was certain that real and complete knowledge had existed in ancient times. I fell out of a ceramic vessel and tried to catch a fish. Only then I knew, I must strive for freedom.

Before beginning this history, I am a pilot who is trying to make his way to the Promise Land.

For a fortnight I have been following a humble man who sails along on a wonderful nutshell in the sea. I went there secretly for three days. With both hands he holds on to the reflection of Taurus in the sea. Like a sculpture, he practices the art of contemplation to be a world’s delight. The sun played its melodies around his shoulders while shadows of the mountains passed his gaze. Full of passionate intensity, the darkness dropped again. Swarms of fish fluttered in circles around him and I felt the need to reconcile myself with all aspects of the inevitable condition of being human.

However, I understood that running with panthers induces great creative force. I was destined to live.

During night, a brilliant flash of benevolent energy entered my home. Daffodils and daisies, placed upon the main entrance, filled me with love in the field of dreams. I was a man of logic, and like all mythological figures I lived in Alexandria this time. I had a tendency to wander and took the challenge to climb on a large rock. There was a naval orange tree, broken in spirit, soul and body. I would find the edge of the water and inhaled the fragrance of a perfume that reminded me of autumn and beauty. Someone had appeared in the forest! Surrounded by sounds of snakes and animals, I heard a soft, gentle voice.

I looked around for many hundred years, gazing ahead and above, internalizing patience and developing sincere curiosity. The following year, growing naturally like a tree, a beautiful women rose above ground to bring into live expression. Her outward appearances were humble and kind. She grew with deep, unfathomable gratitude and once, like an angel spoke to Jospeh, she turned around to me and said, „If you go that way you are going, you shall never come to the goal.“ Tormenting questions bombarded my mind, but these questions would have had no answers on this side of heaven.

I am enough, I am here now and forever

C-Print edition by Studio Ivonne Dippmann

 
Barfuß

Immer? Von woher nehme ich dieses „Immer“? Liegt es da unten verstreut auf dem Boden und ich muss es einfach nur aufheben? Will ich es überhaupt an mich nehmen oder zerfließt es sofort in meiner Hand? Und dieses herrliche Blau, wo kommt das nur her? Ich war vor vielen Jahren im Südpazifik und habe mich mitten in die große See gelegt. Wenn man dabei in den Himmel schaut, verliert man die vier Enden der Welt. Die Strömung trieb mich an Polynesien, Melanesien und Mikronesien vorbei. Wo das alles anfing? Mit mir, sitzend, in einer roten Nussschale, umgeben von Bergketten und Vulkanen. Meine Füße baumelten in türkisblauem Wasser und in meinen Händen hielt ich das Himmelsfirmament.

Everytime I recall I pull my nose – black and white jumper edition by Studio Ivonne Dippmann & thekidswantcommunism by FriedrichDippmann

This summer Green Fashion Fair Berlin has celebrated its debut at Haus Ungarn, September 10th – 12th. Based on our capsule edition #thekidswantcommunism FriedrichDippmann presented a first edition of unique patchwork-coats that have been manufactured together with Georg Maier, Mühlhausen.

Since our customers have been asking for coats that can be easily worn over a blouse for example, we´ve decided to push this wish into reality. By using our original designs, we’ve been puzzling each coat together uniquely. This way, we’ve created a very exclusive edition, some with and some without collar, at some of them we´ve attached pockets and sometimes we decided on long arms.

thekidswantcommunism – Model MichelleTimothy, 4 color jacquard, 100% cotton, wearable inside-out, unisex, 2 coats available, locally produced in Chemnitz and Mühlhausen, available at Berlin, Next Floor  

What we particularly emphasize on is the privilege to be able to oversee each step of our production process. That means to build fair and continuous relationships with our manufacturers involved and to be able to discuss with them new ideas and solutions. This way we keep our pieces exclusive and individual. Until now, we’ve also managed to produce portraits of our customers that purchased a jumper from thekidswantcommunism capsule edition. Since this project took its start in Tel Aviv, based on interviews and individual stories, we’d like to continue this personal relationship with our customers. The project title itself, with its many stories and philosophy attached, invited very different people into a space that opened up for discussion about identity, home, capitalism, my hometown Chemnitz or simply how each and everyone of us reflects ones life in relationship to its movement around.

Green Fashion Fair Berlin – behind the scenes at Haus Ungarn
 
This summer Green Fashion Fair Berlin has celebrated its debut at Haus Ungarn, September 10th – 12th and on the occasion I took some images behind-the-scenes. Perceiving fairs of any kind as exhausting experience, the warm and historic atmosphere of Haus Ungarn as well as the selection of brands displayed were worth the hustle. Besides events, shows or workshops emphasizing on a sustainable mindset, Green Fashion Fair Berlin also hosted a pop-up store that invited customers to take a rest in our sofa corner. Creating this friendly space I had the opportunity to have profound and in-depth conversations as well.




Green Fashion Fair Berlin – Pop Up Store, bag LANIUS, shoes Paul Kadjo, jumpers Thoas Lindner, dresses Skarabis

Sustainability is not limited to the discussion of humans claiming resources worldwide, furthermore it generates a mindset of how one profoundly understands the energy invested in every step of the production process in order to have a product available and manufactured. And not just that! It also brings into mind how you as a resource yourself communicate and navigate in the world. We don’t need more fashion designer or items being produced, instead we need individuals that create consciousness and political awareness far beyond production. By pushing education in the field of ethics and values, we are enabled to create content and ideas that channel a human friendly mindset that is communicated clearly in our everyday life.

Through modernism, history and time itself became dynamic forces that lead to a lifestyle which is unstable and accelerates continuously. Structure itself became a rare resource, meaning that one has to re-evaluate and re-consider a situation proportionally to its circumstances at all times. Having that in mind, I was very happy to find space and time having few conversations that literally touched someone and resonated within. Lets see what comes around!

„For me, surfaces of any kind can be shaped and addressed. The challenge in working with them is to understand the material and to establish a connection. Thus, as in this work, a small graphic can be transformed into an independent large-format ink drawing or even into a high-quality knitted edition. Precisely these transitions between media and materials are of interest to me, because that’s where creativity takes place.“

„Er ist in seiner Bestimmung ein Wanderer, ist an Ort und Stelle gebannt, nicht abgeholt wie ein Paket in einem verlassenem Bahnhofswinkel, ist historisch gesehen weniger geliebt, ist ein Herumtreiber, fährt zur See, ist auf wundersame Weise feminisiert, hat sich früh an die Abwesenheit gewöhnt, ist kein anderer als der Vergessene, geht auswärts arbeiten, sitzt am Onimbusbahnhof der Linie 24, ist anwesend als Angesprochener, ist zwischen zwei Zeitformen eingekeilt, die der Referenz und die der Anrede, ist ein unverfälschtes Stück Angst, verwandelt die Abfolge der Zeit in ein Hin und Her, nimmt die Trauer auf sich ohne zu weinen, willigt ein den Anderen zu verlassen, ist die Figur der Entbehrung, wird von Gott eingeladen, nimmt allein in einem Café platz, hat die Arme zum Himmel erhoben, beruft sich auf die Wahrheit, ist für meine Weltverfallenheit verantwortlich, entreißt sich der sozialen Selbstgefälligkeit, ist gleichsam der Nullpunkt aller Orte, geht nicht nur in eine Richtung, lässt Verwirrung an seine Stelle treten, lässt uns sehen, vergisst die Geschichte, die Arbeit, das Geld, ist eine Erinnerung woran?…“

Donner

Feiner Regen, Grillen und Zikaden, eine Kiefer kippt nach links aus dem Fenster. Ruhe, ach diese unendliche Ruhe. Ich bin allein, um genau zu sein, allein im Wald, nahe einem See mit Steg für Vereinsmitglieder vom ureingesessenen Angelverein. Auf dem Steg steht eine blaue Bank, die ich nunmehr täglich mit meinem aufblasbaren Kajak anfahre. Ich bin hier zu Gast. Meine Gastgeberin ist eine wuschelige Katze und ständiger Begleiter. Mit See ums Eck, gehe ich zweimal täglich schwimmen. Früh morgens begrüße ich die Welt mit einem freudigem „Hallo“ und kurz vor Sonnenuntergang beende ich den Tag mit einem Gute-Nacht-Gruß an die verflossenen Ahnen im Äther. Heute nun war ein besonderer Tag, denn es hat geregnet. Der Himmel hatte sich klein gemacht, die Wolken hinken schwer am Horizont. Ich war allein im Wasser, in der Ferne donnerte es. Nun, man sollte sein Glück nicht herausfordern, womit sich mein Badespaß verkürzte. Am Ufer tummelten sich wenige Personen, die mit farbigen Reifen und Ähnlichem jongliertem. Auch sie trotzten dem Regen und waren hier wie auch ich. Auch die Hauskatze hat seit heute einen neuen Lieblingsplatz; bei geöffnetem Fenster, auf der Fensterbank, mit Blick auf Buddha im Garten. Wenn ich eine Katze wäre, würde ich auch dort liegen. Der Ausblick ist irgendwie romantisch. Man schaut direkt in den Kiefernwald gen Sonnenuntergang. Der Regen wird allmählich leiser, die Kerze neigt sich ihrem Ende, wie auch dieser wunderschöne Tag.
