Secret Universe 02: Paul Laffoley
Where can a secret still exist, if it’s exhibited in the public space of a museum? Does it lie in what is shown, in the conditions under which it originated, in the effect it has? It lies in all of the above. Secret Universe presents individual artistic positions that cannot be branded with any of the labels commonly used in the art world and do not follow a contemporary discourse, yet employ all of the strategies of contemporary art. With the series, secret universe, Hamburger Bahnhoff-Museum fur Gegenwart-Berlin is opening a project area in the museum’s eastern wing for a period of three years, which will present works of art that give insights into fascinating worlds of potentiality, as well as offering complex visual narratives.
