REH Kunst is an art project in Prenzlauer Berg. What makes this new project unique is the fact that it combines art with the distinctive physical set-up of a – now historic – hall extension.
REH Kunst is not a traditional exhibition space. In cooperation with selected artists and guest curators, we will fill the hall extension with a broad variety of exhibition projects – diversified, flexible and variable, just as the builder of the hall originally intended.
Artists and curators alike face the challenge of dealing with the constraints posed by its unusual architecture – like walls that slope inward and curve toward the ceiling or the juxtaposition of narrowing individual room segments, and the flexible size of the hall itself.
If they accept the challenge, it will open up a world of potential to them, with completely new and unconventional room designs and presentation opportunities.
As a prerequisite, individual project ideas must be developed and implemented from the outset in the context of the space. That’s because art comes into its own differently here than it would in a White Cube situation. Works of art can – or must – be seen differently here and thus have an altogether different impact. As a result, the interplay of art and space are cause for eager anticipation, because the result is very rarely predictable.
