A painter brings ten works to an exhibition. For a couple of days they remain in the gallery. People roam in between the images: Enjoying them, maybe discussing their appearance or flirting in front of them. One or two of the paintings might even change hands and the 'inventions' of the painter become part of some other person's inventory. When the exhibition is over the artist takes down all the other works and brings them back home. After some years he faces the limits of his storage. Although he has sold some of his work, most of it remained with him. Instead of his usual concern for the paintings themselves - how they look, how to paint, how to finish them, what they might tell and what they won't - he now wonders how to paint again at all.

Concert Grischa Lichtenberger: 05.07.2013 | 9pm
Grischa Lichtenberger was born in Bielefeld 1983. He released several records as an electronic musician (raster-noton, Semantica) and created multimedia installations. Lichtenberger's focus is not only the artistical expression, but the process of creating art in general. Always regarding the complexity and difficulties of communication and material referenciality, he seeks to overcome the dominance of functional interpretations, while maintaining an open access to technology and production. The archive of samples and fragments of overcome and discarded technological artefacts and everyday livestock is enabled by an ethical figure, wherein art is to address and regard the other, without economizing or confining them.
