LAGE EGAL CURATORIAL PROJECTS
Curated by PIERRE GRANOUX
Strausberger Platz 19, 10243 Berlin

We are pleased to present the sixth ORNAMENT UND VERBRECHEN exhibition, featuring a wide selection of works by artists who have accompanied LAGE EGAL this year or whom we have met recently. The series of exhibitions takes place at our temporary space at Strausberger Platz 19, located within one of the historic neoclassical Hermann Henselmann towers, also known as “Haus des Kindes”. The title of this series takes inspiration from the renowned essay by architectural theorist Adolf Loos, who asserted that ornament was a sign of decadence and violence in modern society. 

The selected works compose again an unique landscape of objects and architectural elements that reflect the narratives of modernity and minimalism and the role they play in contemporary society. This prompts us to question our own conceptions of ornamentation and the underlying complexities of our built environment.
