Description:
Houdek's paintings and drawings, collages, gouaches, and films are based on simple geometric principles. [...] A special painting technique, using a superimposition of numerous paint layers until a pictorial composition satisfies the artist's expectations, lends the paintings a quasi-sculptural character. A game with light and shade effects, which create an effect of depth, contributes to this plasticity. Even though the compositions in his works are determined by the formal geometric principles of the everyday present, there are unmistakable hints of ideas of historic precursors, for example Constructivism, and their appropriation in new sensory and perceptual associations.

"The crucial thing is the act of painting itself. I am very critical with respect to my work, or let's say, decidedly destructive. As a result, more layers of paint have gradually come to be applied to my paintings, which are actually leftovers from previous paintings that didn't work out. Either I didn't like the composition, or the brushwork wasn't right, so that I would intensively overpaint the first, or third, or sometimes even the fifth attempt. As a result, the previous layers became full-fledged elements of the work. They are in a sense torsi and mementos. Through the process of overpainting and destruction, I became aware of the substance and the content of what I'm painting."

Description:
Due to changing realities the concept of family has to be reconsidered. What exactly constitues a family? Societal debates and struggles about values and between generations are increasingly shaped by the development of new technologies like in vitro fertilization and surrogate motherhood as well as alternative models of relationships. Doing family means characterizing family as a process instead of legitimizing it biologically. The mutual influences between developing communities and society at large lead to the question if the notion of family can be interpreted individually and if it can be attributed to every possible form of living together. in this sense family matters are of private concern and belong to the political sphere as well. They are expressions of changing social structures and multiplying views on family.

What significance does family have today in the face of globalized working conditions and a plurality of life plans? To what extent do networks and friends replace conventional family structures? How does a group of people have to act to be perceived as a family by others? Is family today a question of free decision alone instead of genetic contingency? In contributions from the exhibition and the symposium titled Thicker than water the catalogue deliberates the current status of family.

Yarisal & Kublitz. Surfing the web without getting wet



The catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition Yarisal & Kublitz. Surfing the web without getting wet at the Kunstpalais from July 16th until September 4th 2016.

Editor: Amely Deiss, Kunstpalais, Stadt Erlangen
Texts: Amely Deiss, Hollyamber Kennedy
Softcover: 94 pages, c. 21 x 29,5 cm, German/English, numerous colour images, installation views, detailed views


Price: 18,00 €

Order number: 026

Description:
In their sculptures and installations the artist duo Ronnie Yarisal (*1981) and Katja Kublitz (*1978) merge pop-cultural pomp and the spectacles of our globalized world of commodities with traditional forms of artistic, cultic and museological presentation.
Surfing the web without getting wet has been designed as a solo exhibition specifically for the Kunstpalais. The underlying concept is based on a story that encompasses all aspects of an exhibition: the works of art and their display, the press statement and the catalogue with its layout.
As the story goes the two artists slip into the roles of scientists who set out for an anthropological field trip into the very heart of a confusing, dizzying and untamed jungle: the world wide web! They allow themselves to drift and become inspired by the symbols they encounter on their journey. The outcome are elaborated sculptures that combine precious materials like tourmaline, brass, and mahagoni with iPods, cigarettes, Mercedes stars and tampons - pieces that appear as mystical and auratic as if they would originate from ancient temples. The exhibition space as well as the form of presentation recall images of archeological or ethnological museums and the sculptures resemble cultic objects of foreign civilizations. In a sensual, pointed, and humorous way Yarisal & Kublitz deliberate our visual culture.

Johannes Vogl. Machinery Misfits

Texts: Meta Marina Beeck, Lee Chichester, Amely Deiss, Kerstin Flasche, Valerie Hortolani, Sarah Lampe, Yasmin Meinicke, Milena Mercer, Ina Neddermeyer, Andre Rompf, Daniel Völzke, Johanna Zehe

Hardcover: 80 pages, c. 16,5 x 23,5 cm, German, numerous colour images, installation views, detailed views and sketches by the artist



Price: 22,00 €

Order number: 025

Description:
Johannes Vogl (*1981) builds idiosyncratic machines and sculptures out of everyday objects. The materials appearance is almost not altered. Therefore, the aesthetics of the works is due to the used materials raw, rough and unpolished. What has changed is the way they function and what they do. The sculptures and machines that used to serve us in our everyday life do not fulfill a purposeful task anymore but seem to be stuck in endless loops and occupied with monotonous monologues. The exhibition title Machinery Misfits characterises them as freaks that only follow their own rules. The relation between human and sculptures, subject and object, observer and observed is shifted in favour of the world of things. The objects are not used and thereby passive but develop an own strange dynamic and inner logic.
The Kunstpalais presented Johannes Vogl's first institutional solo exhibition focussing on his most recent works. The artist created two new works for the solo show that were displayed to the public for the first time. The accompanying catalogue contains numerous colour images, installations views, art historic texts and an extensive interview with the artist.

Price: 24,00 €

Order number: 024

Description:
The international group exhibition explores the often disquieting figure of the clown, which has made an ‘uncanny’ career in recent years. Today (evil) clowns appear in a wide range of contexts including (anti-)advertisement, political activism, TV series, horror films and Hollywood productions, pop music and contemporary art. The masqueraded jester makes us laugh – but with a laughter that quickly gets stuck in our throats: ‘Thereʼs Nothing Funny About a Clown in the Moonlight’ (Lon Chaney).

The show features artistic positions that approach the topic of the clown in very different ways. Next to painting, sculpture and photography the Kunstpalais presents site-specific installations and performance(-documentations) that were produced especially for the exhibition. These diverse works are complemented by exhibits from popular culture, movies, music and political activism.

Description:
Affects are becoming increasingly important as a stimulant for processes of social change. They have an impact on our social and political planning, on public discussion and values, they form an important part of our culture, social life and politics. Affects question existing power structures and gain in importance the more affect-driven people clash, with an opposing financial, military or state administration. Affects are supra-individual, they arise and develop in the human interaction between supporters and opponents. However, affects also describe communication processes and demand participation in things to come.

These observations formed the stimulus for tis extraordinary exhibition cooperation between Kunstpalais Erlangen, the Gemeentemuseum Helmond and the Cultuurcentrum Mechelen: Titled Affekte - Emotions - Mixed Emotions the exhibitions dealt with the increasing importance of affects on society. The extensive catalogue introduces the conceptual approaches of the discourse surrounding affects and features the participating artists in interviews.

Price: 29,00 €

Order number: 022

Description:

The dynamic and mysterious appearing paintings by Lars Teichmann had been shown in their first institutional solo exhibition at the Kunstpalais.Teichmann (*1980 in Burgstädt) is interested in icons and visual traditions of foreign cultures as well as in renowned subjects and compositions of art history. He translates those in his gestic and reduced painting – sometimes only in black and white, sometimes using a vibrant colour spectrum. The figures which eventually confront the viewer on these huge canvases in a nearly life-size manner appear oddly present and ghostly at the same time.
The layout of this catalogue aims to represent the monumental works of Teichmann. The big dimensions of the book show a great number of various illustrations and numerous close-ups which indicate the treatment of texture and material. In addition to art historical texts the book includes an extensive interview with the artist.

Description:
The photographer Christian Werner has long been interested in the history of the old Federal Republic of Germany, “this country that no longer exists, but has left its mark on us all.” His latest object of study is the house of a deceased eighty-year-old. Through his camera he approaches the individual, yet collective memory of a familiar type of interior from a typically provincial, post-war life in West Germany. The melancholy, beautiful series comprises around one hundred photographs stamped with Werner’s inimitable, clear gaze, and is presented in a catalogue and exhibition at the Kunstpalais. Authors from various disciplines supplement the photographs with textual miniatures. (Text: Kerber Verlag)

Description: Animals inhabit the internet: in social networks pictures of grumpy looking cats or sneezing pandas receive millions of clicks and comments, are viewed or shared over and over again. On the basis of key works from Erlangen's Municipal Collection, the exhibition #catcontent  examines the diverse forms of the depiction of animals in art. In the shape of images, animals have served as metaphores or symbols for human traits for many centuries. A new outlook on the multifaceted relationship betweens humans and animal can be found in contemporary approaches that examine the use of digital images to raise questions about the way nature is represented. Many contemporary positions in art involve animals in order to show their perspective, thus callong for a change of perception. Therefore, animals are presented as active participant capable of making situational decisions in their environment and as protagonists takling action in the artistic production process.

The comprehensive catalogue documents the exhibition and contains interviews with the participating artists. Next to the art works the publication includes scientific contributions derived from the interdisciplinary conference which was held at the Kunstpalais during the exhibition #catcontent. They introduce different perspectives on the innovative field of Animal Agency, seen from diverse scientific bachgrounds such as history and aesthetics, literature studies, musicology, philosophy and behavioural science.

Description:
In Erlangen, the city where the mp3-format was developed, the group exhibition “SAVE THE DATA!” focusses on the interference of fine art and various forms of storage. In what ways do artists use digital storage media – current and obsolete – for artistic expression und how are the different levels of meaning entangled? What influence does the digitization have on the creation of pictures in photography, film and sculpture? How are the changes, which happened to storage media within the last years and decades, questioned through artistic processing?
On the one hand records, Compact Discs and CD-ROMs, but especially music cassettes, diskettes and VHS-tapes disappeared from daily use – on the other hand the appearance of this sort of hardware increased in museums and galleries. As raw material, they are more and more appealing for artists; also the spectator is excited about a reencounter with this kind of familiar material. The once dreaded tape jam, the rumble of the film projector, the mixtape for the sweetheart or the image of shelves full of video tapes belong to the past, but the feelings, that are connected with those things, between nostalgia and euphoria, grow and are used purposefully by artists. The hidden content, which is stored in the works of art, but invisible at the same time, adds to the appeal of the presented works.

The catalogue is for the first time produced in a magazine-style format. With an interview with the inventors of the mp3-format, the best movies about data storage devices and extensive series of images about the artists and their works

Description:
In recent years Halil Altındere gained a reputation as a critical observer of Turkish society. In his photographies, video works and objects the artist analyses the social and political reality of his home country and opens the view onto different topics: tradition and modernity, individual and community, state and citizen, authorities and control. Provocatively and subversively he uses symbols and language of the system that he criticises. He questions his role as an artist in the globalised art market as well as current events. In his younger works he turns the gaze to the life of different subcultures in Istanbul and picks up elements of the diverse Turkish film tradition.

The catalogue for the exhibition Who the f*ck is Halil Altindere? gathers key works of recent years and hereby gives a comprehensive overview over his creative output. For the first time his video work Angels of Hell, co-produced by the Kunstpalais, is documented extensively.

Another viewpoint is presented by the scientific articles associated with the affect research. They are based on the lectures that were given as part of the accompanying program of the exhibition. Coming from various scientific fields of research like philosophy, fine arts, theater arts, cultural history or natural science they open up various views on historical and contemporary phenomena of affecting and affects.

Description:

The Municipal Collection Erlangen assembles more than 4.500 significant works of art. Started in the 1960s, the collection reflects the variety of contemporary graphic art spanning from small drawings to space-filling installations, from edition works and multiples to unique copies of graphic art. Under the title RE: COLLECT the Municipal Collection will be exhibited for the first time at the Kunstpalais. Significant graphics are selected for the exhibition and presented together with works of contemporary art. Of main significance is the question which discourses from the second half of the 20th century can be transferred to the present. The exhibited works of contemporary art are not limited to graphics, but include video installations, photography and space installations.

The exhibition ‘RE: COLLECT’ examines central aspects of the contemporary art discourse: the involvement with society, science, the value of art, the human body, language and music. It is illustrated how central art movements from the 1960s and 1970s like Performance Art, Conceptual Art, Land Art and Pop Art resonate in contemporary art. With various references the exhibition examines how international artists deal with different topics and subjects today, which also constitute essential aspects of the Municipal Collection.

Based on the revolutions in the Arab region this publication analyses in which way contemporary artists take up the topic Freedom!, how they interfere and commit themselves socially and politically. How do they express the fight for democracy and human rights, the desire for departure and the struggle for self-determination?
 
With Freiheit! the Kunstpalais in Erlangen realised an internationally noticed political exhibition, which set relevant trends within the contemporary art scene – for example with the project Weiweicam.com by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei and the project about the whistle blower Mordechai Vanunu by the Norwegian artist Lars Ø. Ramberg. The comprehensive publication documents the exhibition, assembles interviews with the artists and includes scientific contributions about the current interdisciplinary discourse about freedom – focussing on the non-European perspective.(blurb)

Description:
In ‘Walking Beside Time’, Kirstine Roepstorff comes to grips with the interaction of space, time and sound. In her collages and space installations she fragments visible reality, dissolving it into formlessness in order to then give it a new shape. In doing so, the artist is not concerned with transience, but with the simultaneity of the past, present and future. Through the intentional staging of the individual objects, the deliberate lighting and the closed concept of the whole, she has created a fascinating artistic synthesis in ‘Walking Beside Time’.

Description:
“Art is awareness work. One could say that in my ‘Dirty Minimal” practice I do not work on the basis of an ‘empty page’ but rather of a ‘full page’, which is a local instantiation of reality. The Minimalists, with their concept of totality, have never gone beyond what can be directly registered by consciousness. They have not seen that reality in itself is a totality. … In Dirty Minimal I have introduced the flow of reality beyond painting into art; the crucial thing in Dirty Minimal is direct dealing with reality, without detours. This leads to relevant, relational form: Radical Beauty.” Almut Linde (blurb)

The catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition Peter Land: Absolute Perfection at the Kunstpalais Erlangen from January 18 to March 24, 2013.

Price: 35,00 €
Order number: 011

Description:
The works of Peter Land (*1966 in Aarhus) revolve around the subject of human failure to accomplish the everyday and existential tasks of life. The artist presents the precarious human condition in a wide variety of media. In one video, for example, an entertainer flops in front of his audience and falls, drunk as a skunk, off his stool. In another work a painter keeps slipping off a ladder while he is working, or an arm waving vainly in distress juts out of the top of a large-scale spatial installation made of bricks. The catalogue presents the artist’s entire oeuvre in images as well as in texts on such topics as the theatrical or the image of the man along with his examination of issues such as education and the meaning of childhood.

Description:
The catalogue Luxstätt documents Benedikt Hipp’s (*1977) biggest solo exhibition so far at the Kunstpalais Erlangen. Four authors approach the complex work from a literary, philosophical, historico-cultural and art historical point of view. Characteristic of Hipp’s work are alluding figurations in his panel paintings and sculptures, which he integrates into his space installations. Hereby the beholder is pulled into a condensed overall theme. The image space becomes a three-dimensional experiential space, a psychologically and ritually charged mental and acting space.

Description:
When it comes to the representation of the ethical catastrophe of killing, which relevance can artistic images, literary texts and play have given the media surge of images and narratives? Which strategies do contemporary art and literature develop within a cultural context in which there are – apparently – no limits to cross anymore and no taboos to break?
In this book the Kunstpalais and the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg have assembled various concepts and approaches and hereby give new answers within this timeless and explosive field of discourse.

Der Schwarze Duft der Schönheit

The catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition Eckart Hahn: Der Schwarze Duft der Schönheit at the Kunstpalais Erlangen from September 16 to November 13, 2011.

Editor: Claudia Emmert, Kunstpalais Stadt Erlangen

Texts: Claudia Emmert, René Hirner, Christoph Bauer, Marc Wellmann, Hans Jürgen Luibl

Order number: 008

Description:
Eckart Hahn (*1971) transforms familiar themes such as landscapes, portraits, still lifes or religious historical paintings into odd scenarios. People, objects, animals and landscapes are formed from plastic bags, paper or wax. They burst into flames, change their colour or aggregate state. Those transformations translate the themes into contemporary contexts. In this way the works deal with the necessities of our civilised life, religion, family, social structures and their signs of disintegration. They challenge qualities such as habits and visualise disruptions and changes within our global media society.

Description:
Twelve artists from eight nations, who were all born between 1951 and 1981, present different forms of irony in the exhibition iRonic. The Subtle Irony of Art. They deal with socially relevant issues and concern themselves with political slogans, gender roles, scientific research methods, and also with our approach towards nature. Questions regarding art itself also play a central role: artists’ expectations towards themselves or the viewers’ expectations towards artists or art, the definition of artists’ roles in society, and also contents and formal means. The artists’ answers to these questions are always shrewd and subtle. They hit the nerve of our times with playfully painful precision.

Description:
The question of the individual identity within society forms the focus of the work of the artistic duo Marc Weiss and Martin de Mattia, M+M. Through a series of film projects, sound installations and narrations the artists turned the Kunstpalais into a fragmented cinema, in which the visitor was getting involved proceededly. Essential points of reference for M+M’s artistic work are movies of the Nouvelle Vague, but as well western and horror movies such as Jean-Luc Godard’s Les Mépris or Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. The artist’s book stands out due to its individual choice of paper and numerous inlays. Private notes from the artists’ calendars and intimate photographic insights variegate the documentary character and the outline of the individual works in each chapter. Hereby this elaborate publication illustrates the processual character of M+M’s art.

Order number: 003

Description:
For the exhibition Dellbrügge & de Moll: guerre en forme at the Kunstpalais the artist duo created two fascinating combinations. They manage to connect the Cabinet Wars from 1650 until 1792 – the guerre en forme – with the gentrification of financially promising quarters in our present-day society. The upgrading of poorer urban districts is comparable to a class struggle – the poor being the losers. Additionally Dellbrügge & de Moll’s work is dealing with the occupation of space by means of language. In the catalogue all artistic projects are illustrated extensively and commented on in detail.
