Dagmar Woyde-Koehler is the initiator, curator and director of the MINDKISS Project which she founded after the death of her partner, the Karlsruhe artist OUBEY, in 2004. Working independently of the structures of the established art market and in unprecedented ways, ever since then she has brought the artistic legacy of OUBEY to the attention of a global audience. Taking the work of another person, she has created a new work with its own autonomy. Something which has never been seen before.
Dagmar Woyde-Koehler has succeeded in launching something astonishing and making the seemingly impossible possible. With her work firmly grounded in life and her thoughts simultaneously always exploring other spheres. She observes life and the world with a highly individual gaze.
“The world is full of possibilities. The key to the realization of the seemingly impossible is simply to realize what is possible and do it“. In her thinking and her work she crosses many frontiers which would be prohibitive to others and even does it with apparent ease. “If necessary,” she says “I set my sails against all odds”.
