Exhibition "Visualising Stress Effects"

Jun 05, 2012

The picture series "Visualising Stress Effects" will be shown in an exhibition from May 22 to June 19 at the Karl Jaspers Centre. It was opened in presence of the artist Kristin Herrmann on May 22 in context of the conference "The Culture of Stress", organised by project C5 "Stress and Stress-Relief".

Kristin Herrmann is a designer and painter from Frankfurt. In 2010, she created a series of illustrations on stress amongst students showing the effects of stress on an emotional, physical and behavioural level. She expresses topics such as Burn-Out, despair, insomnia, hectic, or depression in her artworks. Two years later she expanded her collection and designed a second series of pictures on stress effects in a more global context. Looking at factory workers in China and Bangladesh, she painted her impressions of modern everyday life influenced by the economy and a success-oriented lifestyle. Herrmann works with graphical elements using photographs, drawings and other material for collages. The second series consists of aquarelle paintings. Pictures from both the first and the second series are now brought together in the exhibition "Visualising Stress Effects".

The exhibition takes place at the Karl Jaspers Centre from May 22 to June 19.  The pictures are displayed in context of the conference "The Culture of Stress", organised by research project C5 "Stress and Stress-Relief". The exhibition has been realised with the support of Birte Herrmann and project C5.
