Weekly Exhibition | Johanna Klingleruntil
The museum emerges with the birth of modernity and offers new ways of structuring knowledge, public services and leisure time. As an institutional complex, it forms its own cosmos that materializes cultural conventions and engages visitors into its physical and idealistic logic. Patterns of common behavior are not only depicted, but also being socialized. In her paintings and sculptures shown at Museum Brandhorst, Johanna Klingler connects this characteristic of the museum with structures of seemingly different spaces: the bar and the garden. What these places have in common is their status as closed organisms that seem to function independently of the social and material conditions of society. However, on a closer view the rules, that structure these systems, also operate in the physical and ideological organization of our reality.
