Katharina Gaenssler : From Beginning to End

17/09/2021 - 01/11/2021

Goethe Institut 
17, avenue d'Iena 
75116 Paris


After studying the work of architect Rainer Schell, the artist conceived a special creation for the Paris Institute: a three-dimensional intervention in the form of a pictorial curtain. When Rainer Schell ended his career, he destroyed his archives. He only collected a small selection of his texts and drawings in the collection 30 Years of Architecture. In her site-specific installation, Katharina Gaenssler compares this collection with her own archives, which she opens to the public.
