Membranes, Surfaces, Boundaries – Creating Interstices

This ex­hi­bi­tion pre­sents works by artist Heike Kluss­mann, ar­chi­tect Thorsten Kloost­er, de­sign­er and artist Su­san­na Her­trich, and de­sign­er Cle­mens Win­k­ler. In pro­jects and ex­per­i­ments, they de­mon­s­trate the re­cip­ro­cal ac­tion be­tween the the­o­ret­i­cal and ma­te­rial man­i­fes­ta­tions of mem­branes, sur­faces, and boun­daries, and their tran­si­tio­n­al stages be­tween ev­ery­day ob­jects, tech­nol­o­gy and aes­thet­ic pro­duc­tion.
