The group show brings together artists from different generations, whose works examine the idea of a form that struggles against its own form. The artists have used different materials, perceptual or conceptual approaches, resulting in differently shaped forms (“Gestalten”) and unshaped forms (“Ungestalt”) – inspiring the title of the show.
The exhibitions include works by Caroline Achaintre, Olga Balema, Joachim Bandau, Trisha Donnelly, Marcel Duchamp, Michaela Eichwald, Florence Jung, Eric N. Mack, Liz Magor, Park McArthur, Pakui Hardware, Nathalie Perrin, Tomo Savić-Gecan, Lucie Stahl, Alina Szapocznikow, and Adrián Villar Rojas.
