Denn wir biegen und brechen die Zeit.
— mit einer Einführung von Ivonne Dippmann
I did it all with love, first prototype of a patch that will be included as insert to the book. The patches are produced by Onkel Stitch Chemnitz, founded by Guido Günther.
For we bend and break time.
— with an introduction by Ivonne Dippmann When an artist has lived in places as far-flung as Ivonne Dippmann has (b. Karl-Marx-Stadt, 1981; lives and works in Berlin and Tel Aviv), it makes obvious sense to read her work in light of these changing environments. Art as a constant in the experiences of an itinerant life – that is the starting point of this homage to two cities that are home to and anchors of her work: Tel Aviv and Chemnitz. Liebeslied (Love Song) intends to mark a counterpoint to the endless wrestling with the world. It magnifies moments in which movement comes to a stop, constant change turns into eternity, memories connect people, and we pause in heartfelt silence. Liebeslied brings episodes and places into focus in which we receive intimations of what keeps us going, but can also shake us to the core. Tel Aviv, the frantic pulse of the West, and Chemnitz, the Sleeping Beauty of the East, slowly being aroused from her slumber. This book is ultimately about friendship and collaboration – about the strong-willed and courageous people who fill the two cities with charm and drive; striking and shrill as well as gentle and mysterious.

FriedrichDippmann is a Berlin-based collaborative between Agnes Friedrich and Ivonne Dippmann. Under FriedrichDippmann we initiated a textile-based project under the catchy title thekidswantcommunism. Its core and theme have been inspired by a conference on communism at CCA, Tel Aviv as part of the exhibition The Kids Want Communism at MoBY: Museums of Bat Yam curated by Joshua Simon.Together with the professorship of textile technologies at TU Chemnitz and maximo-Strickmoden we designed and manufactured a first series of twelve individual knitted sweaters. As part of the artbook we documented these prototypes in Tel Aviv and featured twelve friends along with their individual stories at their favourite place-to-be. We interviewed friends and colleagues who I embrace for their vision, mindfulness and ability to share their life and ideas with others. Their individual choice to live in Israel is crucial aspect and influence for their way of life and creating their vision. The interviews and images, along with a short introduction by Tal Gafny and myself, are heart and center of the book.
