ABOUT

Founded in 2010, LAGE EGAL still regards itself as an experimental Berlin-based laboratory intent on tampering with the prevalent mechanisms of art presentation and mediation in a rather playful way. The emphasis is on curatorial projects that scrutinize and reconsider the stature of exhibitions as such, also as a creative act that repeatedly provides the audience with new ways of viewing art. 

LAGE EGAL has set a long-term goal to give artists the opportunity to display their work outside the commercial art market, also as a professional ground for curatorial practice to guest curators. LAGE EGAL also distinguishes itself through its thematic discussions with artist’s books and editions — and accordingly by questioning the original, the copy or reproduction, the duplicate or the series. 

Even though the designation 'artist-run space' or ‘project space’ as such suggests a local constant, the concept of the non-profit art space(s) LAGE EGAL ("location no matter") is rather unattached to one specific location. LAGE EGAL is not only a word–play, it also describes exactly the process of a textual and programmatic dynamism and flexibility where the location of the space becomes irrelevant.
