Mischa Kuball: New Pott Revisited
The GEMAK exhibition Mischa Kuball: NEW POTT REVISITED was opened on Friday 19 April 2013.
The exhibition provides an insight into Kuball’s large-scale artistic study into the multicultural reality of the Ruhr and was originally developed in response to European Cultural Capital RUHR.2010. At GEMAK, the project will be presented as an installation. Mischa Kuball exhibits light objects and 100 photographic tableaux, as well as video footage presenting 100 encounters between the artist and people from 100 different countries, now living in the Rurh, in a variety of ways. These 100 conversations form the fabric of a many-voiced narrative about the Ruhr that, in a sense, remaps the area.
About Mischa Kuball
Mischa Kuball (born 1959 in Düsseldorf, Germany) has been working in the public sphere since 1987. He uses light as a medium to explore architectual space as well as social and political discourse in his installations and photographs, reflecting on a whole variety of aspects from sociocultual structures to architectural interventions, emphasising or reinterpreting their monumental nature and context in architectual history. Public and private space merge into an indistinguishable whole in politically motivated participation projects, providing a platform for communication between the audience, the artist, the work itself and public space.
Since 2007 Mischa Kuball is a Professor in the Academy of Media Arts, Cologne where he founded the -1/MinusEins Experimental Lab.
