Commissioners’ Exhibition suggests every noteworthy architectural endeavor is the result of a competent architect paired with an engaging commissioner. However, this relationship is often portrayed as antagonistic instead of being articulated as a common ground for production. In a considerably widespread perspective where the architect claims other experts and implementers as enemies of her/his design, the commissioner is also caricatured as “ignorant and tasteless.”

To Become Two is the first comprehensive solo exhibition of artist Alex Martinis Roe in Germany. Martinis Roe’s project is driven by the parallel histories of several interconnected feminist communities in various places and imagines futures from them in conversation with groups of women from different generations. Over the last four years, she has worked dedicatedly with international feminist communities and institutions in Europe and Australia to develop a series of films and ongoing workshops.

As a sculptor, Yang is known for her use of a variety of materials and diverse working methods. Her materials range from industrial mass-produced items to organic and immaterial things such as smells or noises. Her working method is labour-intensive both conceptually and in regard to the craftsmanship involved.
