Skis, a bra, a piece of furniture, a series of leather gear knobs: Alexandra Bircken draws on objects as artistic materials that are familiar to us from our everyday lives – not only in their shape and appearance, but also in their feel and use. But the artist takes them out of this context and combines them in unexpected ways. In this tactile tour, we will examine the structures of the different objects and surfaces by means of material samples and discuss the unexpected associations that are revealed in the artist's sculptures.


This tour is suitable for visitors with and without a visual impairment.
