ZAK Center for Contemporary Art

Visual identity, signage

The exhibition Collectors and Hunters – Wunderkammer Zitadelle was an experiment. The sculptor Olaf Bastigkeit was 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 built 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.
