The third room

Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, Dusseldorf

Der dritte raum. Trzeci pokoj. A project that aims to create a third space bettween the The Kunsthalle Dusselldorf and the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw. The selected artists enter into a dialogue with each other. A specific situation typical of Oskar Hansen's classroom in Warsaw will be recreated in Dusselldorf, while in Warsaw an architectural space will be created that makes reference to the two rooms Joseph Beuys.

Kunst­hal­le Düs­sel­dorf / Mu­ze­um Sztu­ki No­wo­czes­nej Wars­zawie

Curated by Barbara Piwowarska and Magdalena Holzhey

The Kunst­hal­le Düs­sel­dorf and the Mu­se­um of Mo­dern Art in War­saw are col­la­bo­ra­ting on joint ex­hi­bi­ti­ons to be held as part of the North Rhi­ne-West­pha­lia Cul­tu­ral Se­a­son in Po­land 2011/2012. The pro­ject aims to crea­te to a third “space” ari­sing from the dia­lo­gue bet­ween the two ex­hi­bi­ti­ons.

The in­itia­tors see the pro­ject as a la­bo­ra­to­ry or “ex­er­cise” in which they ho­pe to shed light on the par­al­lels in the his­to­ri­cal tra­di­ti­ons of the art aca­de­mies in Düs­sel­dorf and War­saw. Bo­th aca­de­mies play­ed a pionee­ring ro­le in the de­ve­lop­ment of al­ter­na­ti­ve forms of teaching in the 1960s and 1970s, re­pre­sen­ted by Jo­seph Beuys and his “so­ci­al sculp­tu­re” con­cept and “ex­ten­ded de­fi­ni­ti­on of art” in Düs­sel­dorf and by Os­kar Han­sen and his theo­ry and prac­tice of “Open Form” in War­saw.

The two si­te-spe­ci­fic in­stal­la­ti­ons ta­ke the spe­cial ar­chi­tec­tu­ral fea­tures and pro­por­ti­ons of the cor­re­spon­ding spaces in Düs­sel­dorf and War­saw in­to ac­count. A speci­fic si­tua­ti­on ty­pi­cal of Os­kar Han­sen’s class­room in War­saw will be recrea­ted in Düs­sel­dorf, whi­le in War­saw an ar­chi­tec­tu­ral space will be crea­ted that makes re­fe­rence to the two rooms Beuys used (rooms 19 and 20) at the aca­de­my in Düs­sel­dorf. Bo­th rooms will thus ser­ve as (re­al and me­ta­pho­ri­cal) ex­hi­bi­ti­on and pro­duc­tion spaces for the selec­ted ar­tists, car­ry­ing on or brea­king wi­th cer­tain tra­di­ti­ons and en­te­ring in­to a dia­lo­gue wi­th each other.
