TO THE EXHIBITION
FLACHWARE_Taking up space
Some things in everyday life take up too much space.
It started with a sledge, followed by wooden chairs, dismantled into individual parts - the basis of a new composition that still corresponds to the recognizable image of the original function.
The result is a flat object, hanging on the wall, which you can now face at any height. Perhaps at eye level, if you like.
A transformation of the functional structure of the object, its form and the space it defines, its occupation of space, has taken place. Nevertheless, these analog deconstructions are still firmly rooted in our tangible, i.e. sensually perceptible world. You can experience them, question them, understand them anew and exchange ideas with them in space.
Create space, give me an object from your everyday life, perhaps a chair that is in your way. I will make a selection and create deconstructions and at the end I will give the object back to you as a flat product. Take up space, bring a chair with you.
The FLACHWARE series represents wall objects. The function of the objects is ignored. New compositions are created. The transformation convinces through the balance of recognition and new creation.

EXHIBITION SERIES MEET ME AT THE CORNER - ART AND ENCOUNTERS
The exhibitions at KUNSTraum SCHWERIN focus on a different theme each year. In 2024, the KUNSTraum SCHWERIN will present the exhibition series meet me at the corner - art and encounters with seven exhibitions.
The very layout of the exhibition space with its open glass fronts on the corner of Platz der Jugend invites the public to encounter the contemporary art works on display. In 2024, the character of the location will be incorporated into the presentations, so that an even more direct approach and form of immediate encounter can be found. The boundaries between inside and outside will blur, bringing art into the public space and creating a "meeting place for art". The KUNSTraum SCHWERIN will undergo diverse and surprising transformations and maintain the tension throughout the year.
