In Galerie 2, Lutz-Rainer Horst Müller and his Maximal Speed is a State of Rest represents his second project developed for the gallery.
Lutz-Rainer Müller has again set up an elaborate project. True to his own tradition, the exhibition space operates as a stage, a site for action and contemplation rather then a display site for already finished and closed thoughts. In this way, Müller references what Brian O’Doherty describes in his book Studio and Cube (2007) that the cube (the exhibitio… more
In the video room Declan Clarke shows for the first time his new work entitled Nothing Human is Alien to Me.
Declan Clarke repeatedly shows an interest in history and politics and the manner in which they impress themselves on everyday life. In former films he has analyzed the difference and similarities of the process of history, interweaving personal and historical trajectories.

These are from the film series "Life in the Death Zone", where the interest in the fact that someone - anyone - would be able to do their job in the … more
William Lamson, SUBLUNAR
"The pursuit of flight, no matter how flawed or hopeless the attempt, places the amateur in the heroic position of trying to transcend his place on earth. This project investigates the flight endeavor as it represents the desire to escape earth and the hope of surpassing human limitation."
—William Lamson, 2007

Lutz Rainer Müller / Jan Freuchen
In 2006 Lutz-Rainer Müller and Jan Freuchen exhibited an almost 1:1 wooden replica of The Eagle, the lunar module that landed on the moon in 1969. The replica also had a over- sized copy of a grand piano attached to its body. Originally named Objet Trouvet (found object), the installation went through a deconstruction as Freuchen and Müller chopped it into smaller pieces with each of them working as an autonomous sculpture.
They were dropped in a… more
