Edition No. 43/1-4

Freisteller Villa Romana Fellows 2008

In the context of the Freisteller exhibition, the Deutsche Guggenheim is publishing editions of all four Villa Romana Fellows for the first time. The individual editions emerged independently of one another and are closely connected with the works on exhibit.
Despite the very different artistic positions, common interests and strategies are discernible.

In “i.e.,” Dani Gal questions the authority of institutions by removing example sentences from the Oxford English Dictionary from their context and formulating an absurd “novel” out of them. In her edition, Julia Schmidt fragments a painting by Edgar Degas and makes five new “compositions” from the material. With his unlimited dedication, Clemens von Wedemeyer refers to in his words “superfluous people who arise due to specialization and amassing of capital and thus are involuntarily “exempted” from economic and societal activities. Aslı Sungu finally challenges the purported steadfastness of material values by casting copies of luxury jewelry using acrylic like in her general art work.

In all of the editions, motifs and themes are taken out of their original context and used to open up new, discursive connections.
