This exhibition brings together artists under various aspects of the relationship between space and pictures, the perspective of multiverse reflections, doublings, or reflections and references. With sculpture as its starting point, it opens up questions between radical geometric abstraction in the work of Lili Dujourie, conceptual investigations in the work of Isa Genzken, or a political attitude and political space in the work of Astrid Klein. In this regard, the question of the materiality of objects and their unclear functionalization plays an important role. In the doubling of the world behind the mirror lies the very concrete frame of reference for our questions about the real in the everyday lack of understanding of things and their value. Thus, exploring values and correlations is central to the exhibition both as a question and an answer in space. The work Mirror (1981) by Gerhard Richter at the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf is yet another reference point.
A group exhibition with Lili Dujourie, Isa Genzken, Astrid Klein, Mischa Kuball, Aron Mehzion, Reinhard Mucha, Sturtevant, Rosemarie Trockel.
