Catalogue design, invitation

The paintings of the Berlin artist Reinhard Pods are gestural abstract; layers of paint in intense colors, scribbled lines smeared into streaks, enigmatic graffiti writings and deformed bodies in large format are staggered against dense spaces. The catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition R. Pods Bilder 1976–2021 with a text by the Swiss curator Gianni Jetzer. The special feature of the catalogue is a fold-out leporello which presents Pods painting from 1976 to 2021.

ZAK Center for Contemporary Art

Visual identity, signage

The exhibition Collectors and Hunters – Wunderkammer Zitadelle is an experiment. The sculptor Olaf Bastigkeit is invited to dive into the archives, collections, and storage rooms of ZAK Centre for Contemporary Art for making his very own personal selection. The interest of the artist goes beyond the typical highlights of the museum’s collection and focusses on criteria of shape, color and contextual meaning. The presentation follows the idea of a cabinet of curiosities – objects presented in a specific setting, a real maze, arranged from valuable historic furniture as well as left-overs from past exhibitions and never before exhibited curiosities, wrapped in hundreds of meters of sheer fabric. This builds the frame for the exhibited objects and the works from other artist colleagues, invited by Olaf Bastigkeit: Mariechen Danz, Moritz Frei, Jay Gard, Hannah Hallermann, Christian Henkel, Marian Luft, Yvonne Roeb.

Galerie Michael Haas

Book design

Jakob Mattner creates works of light. His artistic goal is the transformation of light between darkness and brightness, the Twilight as one of his most important work series is titled. Large-format light installations fall into a new creative phase and cast vibrating, analogue reflections on a projection foil that look like interstellar nebulae or light reflections of water. The catalogue for the exhibition Second Planet at Galerie Michael Haas shows Mattner’s latest work.

On the occasion of the documenta 14, the church of St. Elisabeth invited the German artist Anne Gathmann to realize a site specific installation. The artwork is one large hanging bow, consisting of 4000 aluminum bars. The single bar with its distinctive shape and materiality becomes the key visual for the whole visual identity and is found on all the printed matters.
