gilbert bretterbauer: textile order
Installation in the MQ ART BOX
Opening: Thu, Dec 07, 19:00
Venue: MQ ART BOX
equally spaced nets are arranged in such a way so as to make the space seem impenetrable while, at the same time, allowing for clear glimpses depending on the viewer’s position. due to the geometrically arranged levels of textile, the empty volume becomes visible in which rhythmically strung groups of colours form patterns.
the perspective of perception creates the three-dimensionality of the space, and textile straps lend a haptic component through their hanging characteristics.

Michael Koch: The Virtue of Disorientation
Exhibition in the Jan Arnold Gallery
Opening: Thu, Jan 11, 19:00
Venue: Jan Arnold Gallery
Jan Arnold ist proud to present the artwork of Michael Koch - this is a exclusive one week exhibition!
Michael Koch oscillates between painting, sculpture, new media and music, he loves electronic music which influences his pictorial work. According to Walter Benjamin, not only the movement of the eyes belongs to looking, but also their decommissioning. Decommissioning the view is one of the topics Michael Koch is focussing in his fine art projects. He tries to visualize and translate music into colors and forms, as in his exhibition co-operation with Karl Salzmann.
Visualization of the sound sculpture by Michael Koch generates itself in the intervals between the feedback and the diverging radius of the circular microphone, for example, which is picked up by Michael Koch and translated into concentric circles and geometric characters. This results in a picture of the sound, which represents the tempo, the rotation and the pauses between the notes. Like in Michael Kochs paintings the most important thing is the gap between the elements of his mural reliefs, like in James Blake´s song Limit to your love. Michael Koch is a contemporary fine artist and DJ and he is interested in visualization of sound and the silent in between.
Elisions, like in Heinrich Heine's Poems, are characteristic for the paintings as well as for the wall reliefs. Dashes, blank lines, space characters, absolute silence are part of that dysfunctional space. The tongue of expression is lanced by a net of cavities. The demonstrative gaps are a statement. The possibility of
subtile interpretation opens a new range of perception. He is checking every position of his deeper impact to fulfilling the perfect line.

The film "throw your fear up in the air!" makes visible a woman who grew up amid war and destruction and lived her entire life in fear. Her little apartment, in which she would let nothing be changed, gave her a sense of security. Rose Ausländer gives women like her a voice..
To celebrate the opening of the exhibition Ingrid Gaier will personally present a choice of her films at Raum D/Q21. The musician Gammon, who composed the music for the film, will deliver the musical interpretation in a live performance.
