The Way We Are 3.0

The exhibition brings together more than 190 works from different eras and contexts and addresses both contentual and formal issues. Seven thematic areas formulate artistic approaches to depicting the human being, develop a current picture of Germany, engage in multifaceted play with everyday life or the medium of the book, and investigate minimalist tendencies, photographic procedures or aesthetic contradiction. And with Mel Chin an artist’s bar even makes an appearance.

Luca Vitone. Macht

The Italian artist Luca Vitone (*1964, lives in Milan) traces the manifold imprints that are deposited in spaces and determine both their appearance and our idea of them. In creating his conceptual portraits of different places, he incorporates emotional as well as cultural, social as well as historical, economic as well as political aspects. Since the 1980s, he has used film, painting, photography, installation, audio piece, or scent installation to pose questions about memory of and longing for home, about migration and the representation of spaces.

Peter Piller – Archive of Books

Cabinet exhibition in the Centre for Artists‘ publications

For his artistic work, Peter Piller has always preferred the formats of artists’ publications. As a rule, he transfers selected groups of artistic works into the form of an artist’s book, a postcard or graphic edition. The images used come from the artist’s archive. They come from different contexts. For example, he has categorised about 7,000 press photos into more than 100 subject areas.
