Double Bound Economies

“Double Bound Economies” is about reading an East German photo archive. This non-institutional archive was created between 1967 and 1990 by the freelance photographer Reinhard Mende, who was commissioned by various GDR combines and the trade fair in Leipzig. “Double Bound Economies” takes the proclamation of internationalism of the socialist production as starting point to thematize its economies, schizophrenia, gestures, contradictions, as well as its staged images, spaces and displays.

The exhibition shows artistic interventions into the archive and contributions by Tekle Belete, KP Brehmer, Seiichi Furuya, Allan Sekula, Noël Burch, Olaf Nicolai and The Otolith Group. “Double Bound Economies” is curated by Estelle Blaschke, Armin Linke und Doreen Mende.


Painting Objects

„Painting Objects“ is, depending on one’s perspective, a more familiar or more detached look at painting. The exhibition features pictures that have become objects − pictures created by time, coincidence or discovery. Layers of varnish, spray mist, folds of fabric or dye powders stop the eyes from penetrating deeper into the image. The works concentrate more on the edges of the picture, on the surface and its presence in real space.

With works by Joachim Bandau, Marcel Frey, Federico Maddalozzo, Marie Reinert and Barbara Trautmann.
