curator(s): Moritz Küng

The Larsen effect, better known as the electro-acoustic phenomenon of feedback between microphone and amplifier, serves as both title and metaphor for the exhibition and is an image for the characteristics of the works shown.

The exhibition, curated by Moritz Küng, focuses on the dynamic character of contemporary works of art, which interlink various components and whose mutual association, closeness or involvement, give rise to something new. Many of the presented works are based on an incalculable moment of chance. While this is certainly the intention of most of the artists, it is not something that can be controlled. It is evident not only in the significance of external influences on the final artwork, whether this is through the different contexts of location, social behavior, individual selection criteria, etc., but also in a dynamic, vital moment that characterizes the Larsen effect. Visitors are offered a glimpse into a world full of contradictions: the dissolution of space and time, the relativisation of states of being, or the shifting of what is site-specific.

Sixteen international artists from three generations are gathered here. In addition to such classical media as drawing, photography and sculpture, they also show media installations, video works and performances.
