Ever since the rekindling of the spatial discourse in the 1990s, the issue of how space is experienced within medial productions has been one of the most fascinating questions of contemporary art. How does the perception of space change within the context of artistic presentation? Can space as an abstraction even be represented? Or does the representation show instead that space is always culturally and socially constructed?

The exhibition "ROOM IN ROOM" brings together positions from photography, architecture and installation in a negotiation of the view into, onto and through space. Here, space is explored as a variable perceptual factor, as an architectural marker, as a bodily experience, in all of its geometric flexibility. The viewer’s uncertainty as to where the space of the artwork ends and where the exhibition space begins makes his/her own positioning an irritating and reflexively confusing undertaking. The localization of the subject becomes a key moment of the spatial experience.

The first part of the exhibition shows photographs by Jan Bitter, an artistic documentation of the project “German School in Madrid” by Grüntuch Ernst Architects, who also carried out the conversion of the former Jewish Girls’ School, in which the exhibition room in room takes place.

The second part of the exhibition, Insight and Outlook – Moments of artistic appropriation of architecture, shows works by Nina Fischer & Maroan el Sani, Axel Hütte, Veronika Kellndorfer, Carsten Krohn, Kirstin Rogge, Philipp Schaerer, Susanne Schuricht, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Sinta Werner.

In order to discuss the subject of the exhibition, there also will be theoretical talks and panels with Karsten Schubert (architect and author) and Stephan Günzel (cultural sceintist), Marc Glöde (art historian, author and curator) and Ludwig Seyfarth (art historian author and curator) among others from September 1st to September 20th.
