"Kunst ist die Heimat der Fragen"
(Art is a Homeland for Questions)
a deconstructive work in progress at the Kunsthaus Steffisburg (CH) from the 29.1. to the 21.5.2016
The colorful façade of the Kunsthaus Steffisburg is in itself an art work of Hanswalter Graf to be torn down by the end of 2017. Instead of simply dismantling the plywood construction, the art committee of Steffisburg assigned the task to five artist, each having to remove 20% of its surface.
This first intervention subtracts phrases and statements about art and its meaning especially in regard to the place and community of Steffisburg. Letters are cut directly out of the plywood, exposing the old façade and construction of this former Bus Station.
opening coming up: 5.3. - 25.6.2016 - "Kunst ist", Installation, Kunsthaus Steffisburg, Schweiz
up and running: 16.1. - 6.3.2016 - "Klassentreffen", Schloss Reuschenberg, Gerhard-Hoehme-Allee 1, 40466 Neuss
