Exhibition View: Kyoungtae Kim. ‘Serial Compositions’, 2021. einBuch.haus


A book in the form of an exhibition

„einBuch.haus“ considers books as art objects which can be curated and presented in exhibition formats, providing immersive experience
between people, objects and spaces.

„einBuch.haus“ offers regular events with a specific artbook concept of selected book in the field of arts and design. Each exhibition or event refers to one book, along with contents and related materials. With an interdisciplinary approach, einbuch.haus are challenged to
communicate both material and visual aspects of reading experience.

A building has its blueprint, frame and materials to become a building, a book also has its own systematic structure such as text, grid and texture to become a book. As if a cluster of buildings form a community where a cultural interplay may begin, the books in the exhibition organised by einbuch.haus encourage the audience to extend their three-dimensional reading experience to become a part of it.

Schmitz reactivates waste by recycling found plastic bags into wind-activated sculptures. Collecting abandoned plastic bags, she re-forms them as windsocks, windbags, and pneumatic sculptures. Installed in different cities (Berlin, New York, Budapest, Hong Kong and others), they serve as three-dimensional, moving silver screens for her video projections. Projected onto the half-transparent, moving surfaces, the videos take on a reality of their own and create a completely new variety of space – a new layer of reality on the intersection of a changing local urban everyday reality, documentation, video reality, and sculpture.

In Between shows images from the Mediterranean, creating deeply ambiguous impressions of leisure and drowning, referencing the recent refugee crisis, but referring in a much wider sense to the feeling of a life with access to privilege versus existence without privilege: About moving and breathing space as opposed to being closed off in an airless space, about options and empowerment as opposed to being reduced to strugggle for the barest necessities of survival. It is about privilege and waste, abundance and misery, about geographic as well as social borders. It returns the city’s waste to the citizens in the form of free, public art.


“My work starts where the media intersect. I am not interested in the modernity of technology as such but in its capacities for creating new imaginary dimensions.”

As a time-based media artist, Claudia Schmitz explores paradigms of media
translation – as a solo artist and in collaborative projects.
By passing through temporary stages, by discarding and re-inventing themselves, her pieces explore oscillating stages of being and non-being, of existence inside and outside the image. Relying on the spectators to trigger them, many of her pieces discuss the extent and possibilities of participation.
