Book Launch: 14.04.2019, 16:00
LOCATION: WHITECONCEPTS Gallery, Auguststrasse 35 . 10119 Berlin
WHITECONCEPTS gallery cordially invites you to Käthe Wenzel’s book launch “Mixed Systems” including a presentation and artist talk with curator Nicole Loeser.
Käthe Wenzel is focusing in her work on social and cultural mechanics, and alternative concepts for society. She infiltrates urban systems and service features. In order to do so, she implements strategies and methods of street art, internet, technology, and interviews with people. Following the concept of public art, her media is part of our everyday life. All tools such as street signs or billboards are worth to spread her ideas, art and messages.
The presented publication (232 pages, german/english, Kerber Publishing, 2019) is her first monograph summarizing her oeuvre developed over the past 15 years.
These series are included: “Machinery and Services”, “Urban Systems”, “Organisms”.
