Alles, was Sie über Chemie wissen müssen (Everything You Need to Know about Chemistry), a title based on a one-off edition of a catalogue consisting solely of empty pages, combines new and existing work by a group of artists who relate in a similar way to the physical interaction between people and things. The international group exhibition features work in which repetition, concentration and precision play a role, and movement and translation lead to transformation. The exhibition functions as an imaginary catalogue of action and the senses. The relationship between body and medium is explored in audio and video installations, drawings and performances.
