‘SET’ by Andree Korpys/Markus Löffler. The image shows a part-reconstruction of a conspirative flat of the Rote Armee Fraktion (RAF, Red Army Faction), based on photographs by the Bundeskriminalamt (BKA, Federal Office of Criminal Investigation), it is part of the exhibition “Come-in. Interior Design as a Contemporary Art Medium in Germany” taking place at Kadir Has University.
The exhibition “Come-in. Interior Design as a Contemporary Art Medium in Germany” investigates the connection between fine art and applied design in twenty-five artistic positions by means of individual objects, sculptures, installations, videos and – in the exhibition catalogue – inserts.
At first glance, the mobilia, objects and interiors appear to possess an “obvious” identity as “furniture”, “luminaries” or “interiors”. At second glance, however, they are too uncomfortable, colourful and eccentric, all too clearly geared to our perception or a situational communicative event. They represent ideas, projects, scenic reinterpretations of situations conditioned by certain furnishing and architectural elements. The interior spaces chosen by many of the contributing artists form links between aspects of contemporary history and their own biography and critical aesthetics.
Every institution that takes part in this touring exhibition is invited to choose and exhibit additional works from its own country for the duration of the show there. These should represent one artistic position dealing with the theme of the exhibition.
