An installation made of bookbinder's glue, pigment and rubber ropes forms the setting for new modular sculptures, that serve as independent objects and supports for Julia Haugeneder's foldings. Also on view is the artist's titular first film work (in collaboration with Matteo Sanders) "Abschied. Oder eine Person und ein Esel zusammen wissen mehr als eine Person alleine". The film deals with themes of cohesion, care work and communality in the 20th and 21st century, using the history and prominence of the material plastic.
A linoleum print with the motif of the "microwave egg cooker" is greeting visitors at the entrance, it is a cultural asset of the 1990s and today an object in the National Museum of American History in Washington.
