> DESCRIPTION

With the exhibition Appeal for an Alternative / Aufruf zur Alternative the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen establishes the Schmela Haus as an arena for testing out experimental and interdisciplinary projects. The reactivation of this icon of modernist architecture is effected via the presentation of eight artistic positions by Shaina Anand, Luca Frei, Group Material, Christine und Irene Hohenbüchler, Jenny Holzer, Sora Kim, Sarah Pierce, and Kateřina Šedá, each distinguished by its poetic approach to social engagement.

A central theme in this context is the creation of social spaces through artistic resources including collaboration and communication. The spatial dimension of this presentation is reflected in its highly specific integration into the architecture of this building, designed by Dutch architect Aldo von Eyck and inaugurated in 1971.
