The Archive«, the artist’s physical and mental »storage«, unites retrospection with the present and the individual and cultural memory in an impressive presentation. Works from different periods and of various media will be brought together – selected artists’ books and texts, paintings, works on paper and sculptures will explore the evocativeness of their form and content. The installation as an image of singularity and disparity is to open up subjective and reflexive spaces for visitors to experience.Jürgen Partenheimer has outlined the project as follows: »The artist’s archive is neither a place nor a room; it is a synonym for everything that exists and has been gathered together within and beyond an open terrain, both imaginary and real.«
