In occasion of the 16th Architecture Biennale La Galleria Dorothea van der Koelen presents 9 international artists from 5 countries: Lore Bert, Daniel Buren, Mohammed Kazem, Wulf Kirschner, Arne Quinze, Vera Röhm, Turi Simeti, Günther Uecker and Martin Willing
Their works show different relations between Art and Architecture, which can be symbiotic – as some ideal art-in-architecture-projects illustrate – if the artwork enters into a dialogue with architecture in terms of content and form. On the other hand the architecture creates a platform where the artwork appears as its best. Sometimes artworks are integrated in architecture (as Daniel Buren in Paris) or they are placed just in front of a building (like Martin Willing in Stuttgart). Others are beyond architecture placed in public space (as Kirschner in Mainz or Quinze in Belgium). The last group are artworks of artists who work with the theme of space and create »Concetti spaziali« (space concepts) like Simeti with his ‘Ovali’, Uecker with his ’nails’ and Lore Bert with her painting objects in paper.
