My work Materialtät der Arbeit. Eine Assemblage. Ein Ziegel (ein Stück Kuchen) is a part of the Rundgang exhibition at the Universität der Künste at Hardenbergstraße 33 in Berlin, I will show the installation and performance there, which I will conduct on Friday at 8 pm in the room 252 (please come earlier at 7 pm to the room 110, where the exhibition starts) and on Saturday at 5 pm (start in the room 110 at 4 pm).
The installation as well as performance are parts of my Master Thesis written and shaped at the UdK in the Institut for Art in Context.
Materialität der Arbeit. Eine Assemblage. Ein Ziegel (ein Stück Kuchen) / (The Materiality of Work. An Assemblage. A Brick (a Piece of Cake) is about work, about the materiality of a work performance and an abstraction of its value. The inspiration for my Master Thesis came from a part-time job in the Cake Shop, which I did during my studies. The Master work entangles this two spheres: University and the Cake Shop, one, which is granted a relatively big symbolic value, but no economical importance and the other, which is symbolically invisible, but at the same time has its material existence in the shape of waterproofed prints on paper and round copper-silver alloys.
I would be very happy to see you around.
