Many thanks to the artist Ann Schomburg for her lecture “Life imitates Art, # the artist as a half solidarity lone”.
“How to be a player, if you do not know the rules in a game that does not exist, officially? Schomburg’s interest is focused on understanding rules of established systems and playing them in her very own way. With her moving sculpture ‘the idling mobile’ Schomburg has created an ongoing sculpture based on a VW caravan, which turns into an artist-in-residency program.
The transformative object „Idling Mobile“ is an installation, a sculpture and a mobile artist-in-residency program. During events the “Idling Mobile“ opens its doors and invites the visitors to engage in conversations and special moments. Situations and performances happen within the space. Visitors are requested to share their personal statements and opinions towards art, life and the vivid interaction between both of the fields. Meanwhile another artist is invited for a residency as a part of the sculpture.
Ann Schomburg will give an introduction into her work based on the fascination of the absurd normal routine of the everyday and a passion for multinational meanings and uses.”
