NEUZEIT (MODERN TIMES)
Bernd Trasberger deals with the transformation of urban space in his sculptural works, installations and collages. The utopias of post-war modernism form an important reference point in the artist’s work. By appropriating and recycling architectural fragments and relocating them, Trasberger examines the value we place on this disappearing habitat and the legacy of modernism and the place it occupies today.
“Neuzeit” (Modern Times) provides the first-ever overview of the work created by Trasberger between 2000 and 2012.

The groupshow “Städtebauliche Prosa“ borrows its title from the corresponding book written by Roland Rainer in which he tries to describe the “human and earthly” aspects of different cities. In the exhibition the text is placed among other books that broach the issue of modern architecture and complements those. The glass cabinets, in which the books are shown, operate with two functions: they work as a classical form of presentation of books, but at the same time they also intervene with the room and modify it. Exhibiting the works of four artists, different perceptions come together that create a dialogue and interplay of subjective impressions on space, the city and architecture.
