500 works on 1100 sqm – The first big retrospective of Martin Assig “Weil ich Mensch bin” in the absolutely stunning MKM Museum Küppersmühle, built by Herzog & de Meuron.

Besides the show’s identity and poster we did the catalogue “Weil ich Mensch bin.” It is published by Schirmer/Mosel and turned out to be an actual artist monograph, grouping works from the last 24 years to thematical clusters such as “Exercises in Wonder,” “Stock Pile. World” or “Aura Authors.” On 312 pages the bilingual, German/English hardcover book contains 236 paintings and drawings as well as essays by Wolfgang Ullrich and Kay Heymer and a conversation between the museum’s director Walter Smerling and the artist.

Site specific exhibition of Birthe Blauth in the Church St Elisabeth on the occasion of the documenta fifteen, Kassel 2022. Duration 4 months.

The pearl-imagery and the green colorway break down the site specific artwork itself to its bare essence. The inner space of the whole church is covered with artificial meadow, a hi-tech kind of astro turf. In the middle there is a big bowl containing 100,000 real pearls. Topic is the paradise as a state of absolute perfection.

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.
