Curated by Stephan Gripp

Situated and decentralised, fragmented, networked, transparent or hermetic, that is how the spaces and places which move in today, spend time in or pass through show themselves.
Social, political and cultural situations are closely tied to the spaces in which they happen. With the upheavals in the spatial and social order that took place at the beginning of the 20th century, the issue of space became a matter of public debate. With architects like Le Corbusier with his "espace indicible", up to sociologists like Sakia Sassen with the Global City, a diverse range of intellectual approaches and concepts have examined our relationship to the spaces we occupy.
The exhibition "Ich bin ein Riss, ich will durch Wände gehen" looks at how art relates to space, bringing together works from the Peters-Messer and Miettinen Collections.
