401contemporary/LONDONprojects is pleased to present HULAHOOP, a project featuring a group exhibition, talks, performances, screenings and a library.
The idea behind the project is to create a setting that serves both as an exhibition and as a functional environment for the events. This salon-like display will include furniture designed by artists, artists’ books in cooperation with LUBOK (publishing house, Leipzig) as well as individual works of art that respond to the three thematic pillars of the event as a whole:
Objecthood and Fetishism
Context and Display
Art/Design/Habitat: Functionality - Dysfunctionality
Artists: Helene Appel, Beate Gütschow, Sara MacKillop, Ursula Mayer, Jost Münster, Giles Round, Franz Erhard Walther
The program of events will include a conversation with Harald Falckenberg (private collector, Hamburg), a conversation with Florian Waldvogel (Director, Kunstverein Hamburg), a screening curated by Anna-Catharina Gebbers (independent writer and curator) and Olaf Stüber (gallerist and writer) and a Sound Performance by Muscleheads (Alex Hutchins and Jimmy Robertson, London).
