Jennifer Mattes

State of Stage
28.1.2017 – 19.3.2017
  The video work of Jennifer Mattes (*1982) oscillates between the genres of documentary, film essay, hollywood cinema or youtube-clips. One characteristic of her artistic practice is the appropriation and recombination of visual imagery taken from the internet, another one is the production of her own films. Combined, both strategies result in a critical as well as humorous analysis of contemporay visual culture and Mattes' favourite


Luise Schröder

She takes a hand herself in history
10.12.2016 – 15.1.2017

Mit jeder weiteren Bananenschale wird die betretbare Fläche des Studioraumes verkleinert und

The exhaustion of resources, the digestion of waste and the reconfiguration of existing hardware are key concerns in the practice of Cooper Jacoby (*1989). “Matte Wetter” (German for ‘choke damp’), his exhibition at the 45cbm studio space, examines the life cycles of optimized materials with a light installation and a series of new wall works based on urban beehives.  Jacoby inverts the ways in which biomorphic


Sarah Ortmeyer

2.7.2016 – 28.8.2016
Sarah Ortmeyer’s exhibition BADEN BADEN (German for „swim swim“) at Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden weaves together leitmotifs from the artist’s previous shows and develops them further. In Paris, one thousand marbleized raw eggs were placed under palm trees in lieu of coconuts, and subsequently projected into a dome forming a starry sky in New York. The grey hues of the eggs and stars are echoed in the branches of the


Evelyn Möcking

Da ist nichts mehr im Dunkeln
9.4.2016 – 12.6.2016
Evelyn Möcking presents an aesthetics of death. In doing so she uses organic components, which visualize life as well as demise. With her sculptural works the artist acts confrontationally and generates an ambivalence, which is primarily material-based. Ambiguity makes the viewer wallow between a sacred atmosphere and a distinctive disgust. The idea of vanity has been a central issue since the baroque era, and it is omnipresent in the

Private Means
30.1.2016 – 31.3.2016
  Private Means is a term describing income from any source except earned income or state benefits. In German an individual living of private means is termed a “Privatier”, a word that pretends to be French, whereas in French itself it doesn’t exist, and thus seems coined by a premeditated sophistication of the german-bourgeois milieu. This circumstance, or better this comfort, is of interest, as the impact

Marc Breu

21.2.2015 – 5.4.2015
In his artistic practice, Marc Breu (*1984) examines the functions and attributions of objects, spaces and materials. Referring to Sigmund Freud's dream theory, he uses the technique of spatial shifting as well as a condensation of multiple levels of meaning. Both procedures are connected with each other and objects of great semantic density are created, hybrid forms such as „shoe-house-animal“ or „garment-fur-plant“.

Nostalgia. It's delicate... but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, "nostalgia" literally means, "the pain from an old wound". It's a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn't a spaceship. It's a time machine. It goes backwards, forwards. It takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It's not called the Wheel. It's called a Carousel. It lets us travel the way a child travels. Around and around, and back

Sebastian Winkler (*1979) develops three-dimensional retrospective images in his installations and drawings. The tangible materiality or practical classifiability of this image triggers associations within the observer. In both his paper collages and his installations, made from firebrick, wire and textiles, a topography evolves which opens up a mentally accessible space. Here, fragments of memory are transformed into palpable forms and
