‘squatting’ shows 22 works by seventeen artists in a format that aims to involve visitors in a mostly serious, sometimes entertaining, but always intense dialogue with art. The featured artworks occupy a space (the Temporäre Kunsthalle) whose location (Schlossplatz) is itself charged with political memories and ideological interventions. The exhibition is based on an iconic exhibition practice which artist Tilo Schulz and curator Jörg van den Berg have been developing since the late 1990s.

 

The focus of the ‘squatting’ exhibition is placed on the presence of the individual artwork, developing a network of connections in terms of form and content between the works on display. Blocked-off and opened spaces, lines of sight and movement emphasize both the differences and the links between the various works: to experience the whole exhibition, visitors must access and leave the Kunsthalle via three different entrances. The space of art (inside) and the space of political memory (outside) remain separate, but are woven together in the visitor’s movement.

 

The poster design makes use of projected typography in space. A colour system reflects the division of the exhibition into three spaces.
