BDA Wechselgespräch: Where does art stand?

With the scholarship holder Fabian A. Wagner, the artist Karin Sander and the architect Max Otto Zitzelsberger
Moderated by Christian Malycha
Zirkulärer Pavillon, Stuttgart, Germany

"We are taking the Summer of the Arts at Villa Massimo in Stuttgart – a celebration of the interplay between all the arts – as an opportunity to determine the current situation. In a dialog between art and architecture, we will discuss which parallel developments, fruitful stimuli, attractive forces and free spaces can develop in a mutual dialog. We want to approach the current state of the arts by reflecting on our own discipline as well as on the border areas between the disciplines. Can free spaces be created in the border areas between the two disciplines, which can override the constraints of the economy and enable new spaces for development? Villa Massimo offers such free spaces, at least for a moment."

Please find the full programme here.

Kunsthalle Bern 2024 is an ongoing project, which started two years ago with the acquisition of several copies of Karin Sander’s postcard work, sold at Kunsthalle Bern. The postcard, which the Bern institution produced for the group exhibition Genius Loci in 1998, becomes the reference point for new artistic gestures. The aim of the project is to set images in motion and provide a forum for artistic exchange. The first contributions are presented at KRONE COURONNE.

Inauguration of Asta und Christian C. Holler (1:3)

Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Wolfsburg, Germany

On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Karin Sander is dedicating the two works to the history of the founding couple Asta and Christian C. Holler and making it visible in the museum in the form of collected adjectives from biographical sources, installed in the foyer. The adjectives describe and characterize the two personalities and their living environment, creating images of how and who they might have been. It is accompanied by a double sculpture of the founding couple made of 3D-milled aluminum. The necessary data was generated from historical photographs of the couple.

#255 ARCH+KUNST – Karin Sander

ARCH+ 04/2024

With contributions by Marc Angélil and Cary Siress, Marius Babias, Elke Bippus, Beatriz Colomina and Mark Wigley, Michael Hagner, Eva Menasse, Letizia Ragaglia, Matthias Sauerbruch, Regina Schmeken, Bettina Steinbrügge, Philip Ursprung, Harry Walter, Harald Welzer

With her interventions, the artist Karin Sander intervenes in the structures of spaces and institutions, changes them, re-contextualises them and invites their participatory appropriation.
In this monographic edition, the artist does the same with ARCH+ and develops a connection between the pages of the booklet and the wall as a constitutive artistic and space-forming element. The monograph also reflects on her contribution "Neighbours", conceived together with Philip Ursprung for the Swiss Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2023, which literally dissolved the dividing wall to the neighbouring pavilion.

Spaziocorpo: Demanio Marittimo. KM-278

Marzocca di Senigallia, Italy

Demanio Marittimo. KM-278 is a marathon dedicated to arts, architecture, design and to the Adriatic dimension. 12 hours of conversations, lectures, performances, films and installations will turn the beach into an actual public space, a land of welcome and exchange.

11.30 pm, Maratona Biennale Uno
The 13th edition has given life to an ideal partnership with the 18th Architecture Biennale, curated by Anglo-Ghanaian Lesley Lokko, who focused her curatorial effort in the same direction as many of Demanio’s usual themes. A marathon of panels will involve a number of curators of national pavilions and exhibited artists, with presentations by Josephine Michau, James Taylor Foster, Karin Sander, Fosbury, Mia Roth Cerina, Meriem Chabani and many others.

The Biennale marathon will have interludes with talks by Philippe Rahm, Matilde Cassani, Michael Obrist, Pierpaolo Tamburelli. Angela Vettese and Marco De Michelis will discuss the issue of Bodyspace in the arts, whereas Luca Galofaro and Manuel Orazi will interview Sara Marini as the founder and editor of Vesper, an architecture journal.

i8 Gallery, Reykjavík, Iceland

Sander’s Ideoscapes is the fourth solo exhibition at i8 Gallery. It features maquettes of twelve Icelandic mountain landscapes retrieved and printed directly from Google Earth 3D geospatial data. Approaching the digital data as found objects, the artist’s minimal intervention consists of selecting the data at scales just big enough to contain each mountain and its surrounding context, given the maximum width of the printer’s output.

Ideoscapes captures each mountain as a memory of sorts, its data’s conflated past moments of Google Earth’s scanning, imaging, and compositing retrieved by Karin Sander at a specific date and time. In installation, removed from a sense of shared history, geography, and scale, the landscapes suggest their own intangible, resonant qualities. The works, printed with the latest technology, are immaculate and precise, but precision is a relative term. Here it defines a faithfulness to the data rather than the landscapes themselves. The works are not models but rather 3D landscape paintings, or perhaps more accurately, 3D landscape photographs since they are in essence printed images. They are, in fact, 3D renderings of composited 3D scans and 2D images of 3D geologic features, and in this translation the precision lies as much in their finished forms as the artist’s ability to divine poetic potentials across the disconnects and ambiguities in and between the processes of their making.

Fragment of an Infinite Discourse

Lenbachhaus, München
Opening: 28.06.2023

The exhibition Fragment of an Infinite Discourse was designed in honor of the donation made by Jörg Johnen. It is presented together with selections from the collections of the Lenbachhaus and the KiCo Foundation. The title of the exhibition refers to a work of art by Mexican conceptual artist Mario García Torres: three glass rings interlock without touching one another. The work serves as the exhibition’s opening gambit and visualizes its program.

With works by Rosa Barba, Maria Bartuszová, AA Bronson, David Claerbout, Katharina Fritsch, Maureen Gallace, Ryan Gander, Mario García Torres, General Idea, Rodney Graham, Giorgio Griffa, Wade Guyton, Eberhard Havekost, Olaf Holzapfel, Raimer Jochims, On Kawara, Barbara Klemm, Beate Kuhn, Isa Melsheimer, Prabhavathi Meppayil, Florin Mitroi, Johannes Nagel, Senga Nengudi, Roman Ondak, Helga Paris, Stephen Prina, Anri Sala, Karin Sander, Wilhelm Sasnal, Tino Sehgal, Wiebke Siem, Phil Sims, Florian Süssmayr, Rosemarie Trockel, Jeff Wall, Peter Welz

The temptation to exist – Alfredo Jaar

Galerie Thomas Schulte, Berlin
24.06. – 25.08.2023

The exhibition The Temptation to Exist can be divided into two parts. In the first gallery room, an immersive experience is created with a large, red neon work by Jaar himself. The words of the stoic philosopher Seneca take center stage here—"WHAT NEED IS THERE TO WEEP OVER PARTS OF LIFE? THE WHOLE OF IT CALLS FOR TEARS.” Seneca strongly believed that if we have the essentials and a strong inner spirit, we can radically accept and endure any circumstances. Eschewing the presence of other objects, the room is entirely illuminated with a dense red light, building an atmosphere of poetic uncertainty, mirroring the unease of contemporary times. The philosopher’s emblematic phrase glimmers in the space, reacting to the tyranny of the white box space and filling it with an idea—a model for thinking about the world.
The second gallery space is filled with more than 100 works from a diverse group of artists as well as a small selection of Jaar’s own works. Here, the artist has tried to create what he calls “a space of resistance, a space of hope.” In juxtaposition to Jaar’s own neon work that was primarily created in resistance to Pinochet’s dictatorial regime in Chile (1973-1989), he has selected works from 72 artists who have sought to resist and change the world since the 1950s.

With Bas Jan Ader, Letizia Battaglia, Dawoud Bey, Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, Stanley Brouwn, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Luis Camnitzer, Hanne Darboven, Gino de Dominicis, Juan Downey, Valie Export, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Hans Haacke, Jenny Holzer, Joan Jonas, Birgit Jürgenssen, On Kawara, Seydou Keïta, Yves Klein, Joseph Kosuth, Jannis Kounellis, Piero Manzoni, Gordon Matta-Clark, Zanele Muholi, Shirin Neshat, Yoko Ono, Giuseppe Penone, Gerhard Richter, Karin Sander, Carolee Schneemann, Malick Sidibé, Dayanita Singh, Nancy Spero, Lawrence Weiner, Francesca Woodman et. al.

Karin Sander – The Window

Esther Schipper, Seoul
07.06. – 01.07.2023

Karin Sander's presentation as part of The Window series centers on her site-specific work 37°32'13.199"N 126°59'17.352"E, presented in the street-facing window. Characteristic of Sander's conceptual practice, this work has a tautology at its core; the title of the work also names the location where it is installed and constitutes its only visual manifestation, black vinyl character on the wall spelling out the coordinates of the site. In addition, a selection of works from Sander's series of Mailed Paintings, Patina Paintings, and Glass Pieces will be presented throughout the other rooms of the gallery.

Opening: La Biennale di Venezia

18th International Architecture Exhibition, Venice
20.05. – 26.11.2023

Following an open call, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia has chosen to entrust the exhibition of the Swiss Pavilion for the Venice Architecture Biennale 2023 to Karin Sander and Philip Ursprung. Their project Neighbours highlights both the spatial and structural proximity of the Swiss Pavilion to its Venezuelan neighbour and the professional bond of the pavilions’ two architects: the Swiss Bruno Giacometti (1907–2012) and the Italian Carlo Scarpa (1906–78):

“The Swiss and the Venezuelan Pavilion form an ensemble of exceptional architectural and sculptural quality. Despite this, they are conceived as separate because of their representative function, and thus, are staged accordingly. We focus on the two pavilions and their surroundings, dissolving their borders with artistic means”, Karin Sander and Philip Ursprung explain. “We see the two pavilions as a spatial continuity and articulate what already exists. The pavilion is no longer functional as a container for housing an exhibition of some kind—instead, the architecture itself, its material and spatial relations is turned into the exhibit. Acting within the perspective of art, we can do things differently than within architecture. Neighbours is also an open conversation between art and architecture.”

My rhino is not a myth, art science fictions

Art Encounters Biennial, Timișoara, Romania
19.05. – 16.07.2023

The 5th edition of the Art Encounters Biennial My Rhino is not a Myth focuses on the intersection between art, science and fictions, by exploring their potential to reclaim reality as a mesh of
complex processes. In between scientific explorations and imaginative speculation, it touches upon stories of the unknown and the drive to change, adapt or subvert.

Landscapes of Desire

The 4th Industrial Art Biennial, Raša, Rijeka, Pula, Labin
Extended until July 30, 2023!

The Industrial Art Biennial (IAB) is an international exhibition of contemporary art. The project was initiated in 2016 by the activist collective Labin Art Express. The Biennial is conceived as an experimental laboratory. Its starting point passes from the industrial topography of Istria, and reflects the phenomenas which shaped the social and cultural landscape of the region.
The Industrial Revolution was not only followed by profound economic and social changes. It also led to a radical change in our understanding of art: Modernism, Futurism, Expressionism, and Impressionism are artistic reactions to the mechanisation of the world. New modes of expression were needed to understand the radical transformation of society. The 4th IAB reflects how the Istrian Peninsula, Raša, was particularly including the cities of Rijeka, Pula, Labin, and influenced in many ways by these processes and was home to an impressive number of pioneering personalities and initiatives – attempting to turn utopian ideas into reality.

With Lara Almarcegui, Cristian Andersen, Charlie Billingham, Vanessa Billy, Werner Feiersinger, Fernanda Figueiredo, Clare Goodwin, Tatjana Gromača, Igor Grubić, Manaf Halbouni, Raphael Hefti, Gregor Hildebrandt, Christian Jankowski, Nikita Kadan, Sandra Knecht, Joseph Kosuth, Sonia Leimer, Lena Lapschina, Olaf Nicolai, Seçkin Pirim, Anna Piva, Marko Pogačnik, Tanja Roscic, Karin Sander, Arcangelo Sassolino, Talaya Schmid, Natalia Stachon, Stefanos Tsivopoulos, Viktor Zahtila

Print is a battlefield

Villa dei Cedri, Bellinzona
Edition VFO (Verein für Originalgraphik)
19.03. – 20.08.2023

The exhibition showcases the diversity and rich creativity of contemporary printmaking. Still too often dismissed as of minor significance, the medium is today distinguished by its exploration of forms, supports and techniques - neons, banners, thermoformed objects, laser engraving and 3D printing. It is also, increasingly, a front line in campaigns on such social issues as women's emancipation and the interaction between humanity and the environment in the Anthropocene.

With works by Luigi Archetti, Walead Beshty, Vanessa Billy, Julian Charrière, Valérie Favre, Sylvie Fleury, Pia Fries, Louisa Gagliardi, Raphael Hefti, Federico Herrero, Bethan Huws, Zilla Leutenegger, Uriel Orlow, Carmen Perrin, Karin Sander, Denis Savary, Elza Sile and Selina Trepp

Alptraum (Nightmare)

Polarraum, Hamburg
17.03. – 01.05.2023

The title of the wandering exhibition Alptraum was inspired by the paintings of the Swiss artist Johann- Heinrich Füssli (1741 Zurich - 1825 London) who painted different versions of „Incubus“ (Nachtmahr). He made the world of dreams and visions subject of his paintings inspired by ghost stories. The wandering exhibition „Alptraum“ is travelling through the world since 2010 and connects artists from all over the world, reflecting on artistic, social and cultural circumstances individually concerning -The Nightmares- and their interpretation or reflection in drawing, collage, photography / works on paper.

Karin Sander and Philip Ursprung are to represent Switzerland at the 18th International Architecture Exhibition—La Biennale di Venezia, with their project titled Neighbours.

Two national pavilions and a wall that connects as well as separates, are the focus of Karin Sander's and Philip Ursprung's project Neighbours for the 18th International Architecture Exhibition—La Biennale di Venezia. By turning the architecture itself into the exhibit, the artist and the architecture historian introduce the audience to new perspectives on the territorial relations within the Giardini of La Biennale.

After an open call, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia has chosen to entrust the exhibition of the Swiss Pavilion for the Biennale Architettura 2023 to the artist Karin Sander and the architecture historian Philip Ursprung. Their project Neighbours highlights both the spatial and structural proximity of the Swiss Pavilion to its Venezuelan neighbor and the professional bond of the two architects: the Swiss Bruno Giacometti (1907-2012) and the Italian Carlo Scarpa (1906-1978).

Special Edition - SPHERE

On the 20th anniversary of The Globe of Goodwill, Karin Sander has, in addition to this year’s artwork Sphere with mark, made a special collector’s piece in 20 editions. Titled Sphere, the transparent Globe of Goodwill may look like a flying, fragile soap bubble, but its appearance is deceptive: completely solid glass, they weigh individually almost 1 kg and with their weight they might bring the branch of the Christmas tree in its balance to its limits.
The special edition will be revealed at i8 gallery, Reykjavík, Iceland.

Limited Edition

The Globe of Goodwill 2022

Kærleikskúlan („The Globe of Goodwill“) is an Icelandic initiative that invites every year one international artist to create a special artwork. The globes are produced as a limited edition to help children with disabilities in Iceland.
This year’s Globe of Goodwill was created by Karin Sander. For Sphere with mark a single brushstroke was applied to the transparent Globe of Goodwill as a clear, painterly gesture. The brushstroke’s one end is wispy, it reveals the viscosity of the color and tells of a gesture that is both cautious and energetic. So the bauble becomes a mobile painting that constantly changes and allows the place to become integrated in the painting itself.
Kærleikskúlan is a limited edition and is only sold for 15 days in December (8.– 23.12.2022).

Kunstmuseum Ahlen

Exhibition takeover from Kunsthalle Vogelmann, Heilbronn: Glass fascinates since its discovery. In the diversity of its characteristics, viscous and crystalline, fragile and resistant, it shows itself to be a material that is artistically immensely challenging. The exhibition sets itself the task of tracing the sculptural emancipation of the material glass from the turn of the century to the present in a multifaceted way.

"What you see is not what you get" (22 exhibitions)

Esther Schipper, Berlin

For the fourth solo exhibition with gallery Esther Schipper Karin Sander has gathered different works from her oeuvre and from these she has curated 22 exhibitions.
Karin Sander has carefully packed these particular, individual selections into transport crates and then closed them; the crates offer protection and sometimes contain instructions regarding the various, small- and large-format art works they hold. The exhibits are well kept in their transport crates, present in the gallery space but eluding visibility. Each transport box has its own size, bears its unique title, lists the materials used in the works, and contains what goes with the installation of the works and the respective exhibition
The tension between visibility and presence is also a motif of the new augmented reality exhibition conceived by Karin Sander. Visitors can use VR glasses to virtually visit other exhibitions in the gallery. This visible, albeit virtual, presentation forms a counterpoint to the 22 physically present exhibitions - it lets visitors see works that are not physically present, while the works in the shipping crates are present but not visible.

Vom Zauber der Handbewegung

Eine Geschichte der Zeichnung im 20. & 21. Jahrhundert
Museum Pfalzgalerie, Kaiserslautern

The exhibition at Museum Pfalzgalerie presents the vitality of drawing today. Many contemporary artists have conquered drawing for themselves as an inexhaustible creative space, directing the magic of the drawing hand movement to fascinating line composition, sometimes strict and concrete, sometimes virtuosically moved. Drawing today has emancipated itself into a medium that questions itself, and that allows for events that not infrequently also seem to elude the controllability of the artists.

Arter Istanbul

This collection-based group exhibition revolves around the concepts of childhood and play. The exhibition aims to explore the liberating aspect of play, its defiant capacity to suspend and reconstruct reality, and the ways it transcends the humdrum of daily life to create unique systems and structures of meaning of its own, within the context of artworks, and the experiences they offer.
Approaching art both as a maker and breaker of play through concepts such as competition, tension, chance, imitation, ritual, magic, trance, and pleasure, the exhibition opens up space for play for both adults and children where there is no winner or everyone wins.

Fragile! Alles aus Glas. Grenzbereiche des Skulpturalen

Kunsthalle Vogelmann, Heilbronn

Glass fascinates since its discovery. In the diversity of its characteristics, viscous and crystalline, fragile and resistant, it shows itself to be a material that is artistically immensely challenging. The exhibition sets itself the task of tracing the sculptural emancipation of the material glass from the turn of the century to the present in a multifaceted way.

Light & Space

Copenhagen Contemporary, Copenhagen, Denmark

This comprehensive exhibition is about the American light and space art that emerged in Los Angeles in the 1960s. This was a time when a number of young artists experimented with creating art from light and new materials. Nowadays they are known collectively as the Light and Space movement. The new departures and experiments introduced by those artists have inspired and shaped several contemporary artists and architects.

With Anish Kapoor, Ann Linn Palm Hansen, Ann Veronica Janssens, AVPD, Bruce Nauman, Connie Zehr, Craig Kauffman, De Wain Valentine, Doug Wheeler, Elyn Zimmerman, Eric Orr, Fred Eversley, Helen Pashgian, James Turrell, Jeppe Hein, John McCracken, Judy Chicago, Karin Sander, Laddie John Dill, Larry Bell, Lita Albuquerque, Mary Corse, Olafur Eliasson, Peter Alexander, Robert Irwin, Ron Cooper and Susan Kaiser Vogel

The point of sculpture

Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona, Spain
Exhibition video

The Point of Sculpture offers an overview of the practice of modern and contemporary sculpture from an asynchronous, heterogeneous perspective that also includes older pieces and anonymous objects. The exhibition, arising from the ambition of twentieth-century sculpture to move beyond representing and generating images, also aims to show the major transformation of this discipline in the twenty-first century with the implementation of new techniques and the emergence of new imaginaries and sensibilities.
The exhibition illustrates how sculpture has held a tense dialogue with reality over the course of its history, capturing objects, bodies and narratives, and how it continues to have ties to the earliest expressions of the urge to sculpt. Accordingly, close to one hundred pieces selected by David Bestué are presented in seven spaces and address issues such as the copy and representation of reality, experimentation with materials, the exploration of the physical properties of sculpture, the relationship between the object and the subject, the relationship of sculpture with time, as well as the representation of the human figure and the expression of complex emotions such as sexual desire.

With Antoni Gaudí, Julio González, Alexander Calder, Joan Miró, Apel·les Fenosa, Lygia Clark, On Kawara, Karin Sander, Robert Smithson, Bruce Nauman, David Medalla, Eva Lootz, Susana Solano, Pipilotti Rist and Wolfgang Tillmans, et. al.

Drawn from the Arter Collection, the group exhibition titled On Celestial Bodies deals with questions around the possibility of reconceiving and reconstructing a vital terrain for living together in our present day. Including works by twenty-eight artists, the exhibition invites visitors to contemplate together the ways that beings come together and disperse, the manners through which they build relations, and their ways of distancing and converging with each other.

Virtual Opening, 26.03.2021, 7 pm

Karin Sander

Kunsthalle Tübingen
27.03. – 04.07.2021

Over the past four decades Karin Sander has developed an artistic position of her very own in the tradition of Post-minimalism. She smashed the rigid attitude of the Concept Art of the 1960s, expanding it by means of sensually processual-participatory approaches.

She responds to everyday, architectural, institutional or social givens with a seismographic intuition and uses subtle interventions to change them. For example, she burnishes images into the wall by turning the quadrature of the conventional placing on the wall into a mirror of the surroundings. Or else she breaches the symbolism of the depiction of an object in a museum, like in the series of “kitchen pieces”, for example, in which instead of the vanitas of a still life, the fruit actually present decays before our eyes.

Her works not only exhale the strictness of Minimalism in formal terms, they also unfold an unexpected poetry. Linking into the premise of Minimal Art, a major role is ascribed to the viewer’s perception. By making us not only think her works through to the end, but also respond to these with all our senses, Karin Sander’s works ultimately realise the utopia of Minimal Art so as to objectivise our perception and lead it to a schematic clarity and logic.

The aim is to present trends in visual art whose common denominator is work with minimal or diminished differentia or nuance constituting an opposite to prominent contrast – including ephemeral objects provoking the perception experience through dissolving solid forms, material instability, semantic vagueness, permeability of contexts, etc. The event is also a reminder of the clandestine action/exhibition of the artists Stano Filko, Miloš Laky and Ján Zavarský entitled White Space in a White Space, which took place in the House of Arts more than forty years ago (1974).

Skulptur / Sculpture / Scultura


The new catalogue by Karin Sander, like many of her monographs, presents itself with its own concept, its own logic, its own order on 224 pages, in three languages. The sequence of the illustrations is based on the size of the works, from the smallest to the largest work, and in the same way the illustrations are shown in relation to the work from small to large, pushing the respective text to the work to the edge of the page in ever smaller font sizes. Andreas Uebele was responsible for concept, design and typesetting.

The catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition Skulptur / Sculpture / Scultura at Museion Bozen in collaboration with buero uebele.

With text contributions by Letizia Ragaglia, Marion Ackermann, Marius Babias, Konrad Bitterli, Marc Glöde, Alistair Rider, John Waters, Harald Welzer et al.

KölnSkulptur #10

ÜberNatur/Natural Takeover

August 2020 – June 2023

The Skulpturenpark Köln (Cologne Sculpture Park) is a unique exhibition venue featuring loaned works from past KölnSkulptur exhibitions. Every two years, a curator is invited to add new artworks to this constellation of outdoor sculpture. All of the works shown at KölnSkulptur, most of them being commissioned especially for the exhibition.
The Skulpturenpark Köln is thus a unique hybrid of permanent display and temporary group exhibition.

ÜberNatur – Natural Takeover marks the 10th iteration of the biannual KölnSkulptur exhibition of contemporary outdoor sculpture. Eight new works have been added to the Skulpturenpark Köln this year. Inspired by the location of the public park – wedged between the Rhine, the Cologne Zoo, the Flora and the adjacent Botanical Garden – as curator of this year’s KölnSkulptur, artworks have been commissioned or selected that engage with notions of nature and initiate dialogue with the natural environment.

Open Codes. We are data

Akzuna Zentroa, Bilbao, Spain

The exhibition is a reflection on the world we live in today: a world that is created and ruled by codes. Digital codes determine how we perceive our surroundings, they influence our financial systems, our legislations and our business models; in essence, they shape and create new horizons for social, economic, or cultural activity.
Open Codes. We are data is conceived as an experimental space for creative encounters, where knowledge production on understanding computer codes and artistic approaches take place at a single venue. It is an attempt to engage with today’s realities and point out perspectives and lines of development for the future in order to better understand the world we live in: a world that has become a field of data.

>>Open Codes?<<

Group exhibition at Kunstraum Leuphana University of Lüneburg, a collaboration with the ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe

This curatorial re-presentation draws on two defining moments of contemporary artistic practice, namely the installation and the interactive – and asserts a synchronic logic against the prevailing, diachronic imaginary of the digital. The “Open Codes” trailer asks how these articulative idioms are themselves shaped by the very technological developments – most notably, computer-assisted graphic design and artificial intelligence – under investigation in the ZKM exhibition.

Opening times: Friday, June 14th (exceptionally) as well as June 17th – July 2nd, Mondays through Thursdays, from 11:00-18.00

Publishing Date: 07.09.2018

In the highly charged area between reality and fiction, Karin Sander has commissioned two acclaimed crime-fiction authors to write a story each especially for her solo exhibition at Kunst Museum Winterthur. Unlike the usual catalogue texts that accompany art exhibitions, the text itself is turned into an artwork. The two crime stories by renowned and award-winning authors, Zoë Beck and Oliver Bottini, carry the reader off to a completely fictional world that collides with the reality of the art created by the artist.

Berlin Britzenale 2

Kleingartenkolonie Morgentau, Berlin-Britz, Germany

17 artists locate their work in the semi-public situation of the garden colony 'Morgentau' in Neukölln's district of Britz. Not only the spatial subdivisions
and demarcations, but especially the social aspects appear to make this club model exciting for artists.
The popular 'Laubenpieper' architectures will be scrutinized by the artists for the second Berlin Britzenale. The nearly Babylonian creativity
of the tenants brings out beautiful, astonishing but also absurd things. The Britzenale deals with the creative process that stands behind the
nature of such structures and constructions, and will artistically comment on creative tendencies of demarcation as identity enhancers in
the context of allotments.
