»Walllust« exhibition project

9 years ago

The »Wallust« exhibition project is a collaboration between students from the Berlin Weissensee School of Art and students of HfG Offenbach.

The exhibition revolves around an artistic exploration of the phenomenon of walls, including ceilings and floors). The students’ works will be conceived especially for the Kunsthalle am Hamburger Platz and executed in situ. The spectrum of applied art ranges from expansive paintings and drawings through to architecture-related objects, which are realized in a wide variety of techniques and materials.

The artistic works respond individually to the exhibition architecture. Walls themselves become topics, are emphasized or negated, at times the existing architectural substance is altered or even destroyed. This large number of individual explorations of spatial borders produces an exciting context in which the works enter into a dialogue both with one another and the space.
