Two artistic positions are shown in each case. As in a compartment, these "foreign" works meet for a limited time, enter into a dialogue, observe each other benevolently or reject each other. Each juxtaposition is only on display for one evening.
The range of artistic practices includes painting, print, watercolor, collage, drawing, film, print, photography, nstallation, painting, textile, video and performance..
An interdisciplinary aspect and the diverse backgrounds of the artists play a central role in the exhibition series. With the artistic positions that have not yet been shown in duo shows, new perspectives on the respective works can be discerned. Different interests of the visitors blend together, and new perspectives and impressions regarding the exhibition venue emerge.
Theorists are invited to write texts on the exhibition evenings in order to achieve a complementary approach to the artistic positions. A theoretical engagement with art is capable of linking art and knowledge about art and provides opportunities for interpretation.
The project STUDIOSPACE Lange Strasse 31 is possible thanks to the kind support of the Kulturamt Frankfurt am Main and the commitment and enthusiasm of the invited artists and writers.
