Smiling, my grandma allowed me to host an exhibition in her apartment once she is no longer alive. She left her apartment last year. We – that is, the artists invited by me, Manuel Kirsch, and I – take a weekend for the exhibition Ausleben, which now takes place at a special time in the undefined interspace of life plans. Everything was structured in the rooms by that lady who was always my grandma until the end and will continue to be. Many have a grandma and know their apartment. At some point, questions arise such as: What do we take with us, what do we discard?
We artists temporarily add something. That „something“ is our art: paintings, sculptures, and objects that I place, hang, lay, incorporate into my grandmother‘s apartment and that connect and enter a dialog with the furniture and objects.
curated by Manuel Kirsch

The park is reflected in the shop window, behind the glass is a photograph. The park is newly designed and public, the apartment in the photograph old and private. It was the apartment of an old lady in Freiburg St. Georgen, where on a weekend in March for twelve hours the exhibition “Ausleben” with 28 artists was shown. The old lady died last year and many years ago allowed her grandson, one of the participating artists, to host an exhibition in her apartment after her death. The exhibition marked a special time in an undefined sequence of life plans. Many have a grandmother and know her apartment. At some point, questions arise such as: What do we take with us, what do we discard? The artists temporarily added something. Now the apartment is empty again and the SOX team has brought views from the exhibition to Berlin. In a picture frame placed in the documentation view of the apartment, they review the group exhibition.
