Light Is a Kind of Rhythm
December 2009
Light Is a Kind of Rhythm provides a speculative history of cinema: Alena Williams investigates the relationship of light and moving images from an early moment in the history of film to that of the present day. She assumes that contemporary artists like Jan Hammer, Jutta Koether, Andreas Wutz, Die Tödliche Doris, and Matthias Müller return to a 1920s-style engagement with cinema.
The study TOURISM | DISPERSION | CAMOUFLAGE, by the Chilean architect Luciano Basauri and the Croatian designer Dafne Berc, deals with mass tourism as a continually expanding industry and societal phenomenon, whose negative side effects allow a rift to form between tourists and the residents of destination countries. Here, the authors are less concerned with the present condition than to present new ways of reading the dis-course on tourism’s developments, and to reveal new solution strategies.

Mediating Space
soft geometries – textile structures – body architecture

With her projects, Gabi Schillig has developed a language and a system that renews our thinking about the interaction between body, space and movement in a refreshing way.

Taking the Figure of the Extra in Cinema Production as a Metaphor
EXTRA WORK is an invitation to a journey into the hyper-real world of moving images where no familiar thing should be taken for granted. It can be seen as a meditation and critical analysis on the language of cinema and its influences on contemporary culture. The publication gathers four art projects (photographs, graphics and video works) by Krassimir Terziev that elaborate on specific procedures of film production.
Sometimes I Whisper In The Wind Until I Hear You
In her catalog Sometimes I Whisper In The Wind Until I Hear You – Chinese Kites, Japanese Ghosts and Other Flying Devices, Ingrid Hora presents the results of her artistic experiments with rituals that connect people to the sky, in which she tells stories of loneliness, the need to hide and the desire to reach out. The artist has produced elegant and functional objects, that are not necessarily airborne, but that intensify dreams of flying.

City + War. A trip to Sarajevo
2008 - December 2008
Under the title City + War, Annett Zinsmeister assembles a wide range of photographs, drawings and essays. Since the beginning of human history, dwellings and cities served to protect citizens and deter enemies. In light of the increasing threat that wars, attacks and catastrophes represent to our cities, however, the fundamental question remains whether major urban centers in the 20th and 21st centuries can offer their residents adequate protection and security.

Woher kommen die wilden Hühner? (Where do the wild chickens come from?)
Showing girls in search of their own identity – in one of their familiar environments, a protected room – is the focus of Susanne M. Winterling’s photographic work. For several weeks, she followed female pupils during supervised homework sessions in Gerlingen’s Pestalozzi Elementary School and captured, in sensitive portraiture, the work atmosphere and the interaction among the young girls.
Electronic sounds that develop in a slow and yet vibrant manner function as a dynamic frame for active listening and a frame for silence as a spiritual mirror of the now and the self. Perhaps this CD could be titled »Silence« too.
