From September 2021 through spring 2022, the Goethe-Institut's Return gallery will host The German School, an exhibition program of artworks from the film class. Initiated by Irish artist and Städelschule Professor, Gerard Byrne, the program presents diverse new work from 24 students who originate from across five continents. Even in the wake of the past 18 months of isolationism, The German School program reflects an appetite amongst younger artists to connect internationally, affirming a constellation of localities connecting via Dublin, Frankfurt, and Elsewhere.

In recent decades the Städelschule in Frankfurt has become an important international magnet for young artists to congregate, exchange, and cultivate a diversity of artistic practices together. All this under the benign care of a 200 year old art school, in the relatively subdued city of Frankfurt.

With a pedagogical approach that is very non-prescriptive, diverse, and highly oriented towards the development of each individual’s practice, the Städelschule students work might collectively evidence new forms of Cosmopolitanism, reflective of our contemporary global conditions of connection and uncertainty.
Over the course of a program of six exhibitions at The Return gallery, The German School will consider, and reconsider these Cosmopolitanism amidst the rich backdrop of a Georgian Dublin townhouse.
