    Kostbar Gelb



    For their first jointly developed project the artists Anna Pekala and Katja Piontek explored several places in the surrounding area of Frankfurt am Main separately. Anna took photos of each place to record her impression, Katja wrote down her memory. this book presents all of the photos and poems that resulted from this project side by side.

    An exhibition without any title



    Collaborating with artist Carolin Kastner and film-maker Eva Münnich, I initiated the project »o.T – untitled«. For three weeks we resurrected an unused gallery room in our hometown Offenbach with spontanuous activities.

    Our colourful flyers and posters did not reveal much about what to expect. The idea was to question the prospects of classic exhibitions and to emphasize the processual character of our first collaboration.

    Inspired by the white cube situation, we started to fill our temporary working space with ideas and experimented with various material. One time each week we invited guests to visit us and surprised them with a different staging.

    Before we began to work we decided to document our work process. Therefore we used different media and declared the documentary a central theme of the whole project. In the end, various photos as well as texts from our blog were transferred into a printed matter for retrospection: Each issue gives an overview of one week. During the last presentation we were producing these issues of printed scrolls of paper which were installed in our room that day.
