Site specific installation for "Based on these new dependencies, we define five normal forms" at Moscow Museum of Modern Art and part of Moscow International Biennale for Young Art 2018;
Curated by Lena Brüggemann
The project aims to reflect on the evolution of social relationships, articulate unarticulated desires towards new relations and foster propositions on how we can live together. The exhibition and an education program accompanying it take as their starting point ideas of the socio-cultural and artistic movement Proletkult which, in particular, focused on the problem of the incompatibility of prescriptive management with the principles of self-organization. Drawing on the functions of the Soviet workers‘ club the artist Paula Gehrmann creates a place to experience art, a library, a training ground and an oracle — changing its function according to the activities taking place. Gehrmann uses the variable architectures of her longterm project DISPLAY and the accompanying photographic series WEWILLNEVERMAKEIT to engage the visitor and make them complicit.
