LAGE EGAL was founded in 2010 in Berlin as a production and exhibition space. LAGE EGAL still regards itself as an experimental laboratory intent on tampering with the prevalent mechanisms of art presentation, mediation and marketing in a rather playful way.
Mostly curated by the French conceptual artist Pierre Granoux since 2012, LAGE EGAL offers continuously a professional ground for curatorial practice and critical exchange to selected artists and guest curators.
Even though the designation ‘project space’ as such suggests a local constant, the concept of LAGE EGAL (‘location no matter’) is rather unattached to one specific location. LAGE EGAL is not only a word–play (LAGE read reversely is EGAL), it also describes exactly the process of a textual and programmatic dynamism and flexibility where the location of the space becomes irrelevant.
The emphasis is on curatorial projects that scrutinize and reconsider the stature of exhibitions as such. Furthermore, LAGE EGAL distinguishes itself through its engagement with artists’ books, editions and multiples — and accordingly, with questions concerning the original, copy or reproduction.
