© Susanne Kienbaum 2011

Dimensions: overall dimensions variable; doors up to 200x50x5 cm each

The sound was the originator of this installation: the barking of dogs combined with the chirring of the cicadas…. The walk between walls and doors is becoming even more narrow and stops in front of the last door which is sealed…

‚Transient Survival Spaces N°1 & 2’

‚Transient Survival Spaces N°1 & 2’
Multimedia-In-Situ Installation
© Susanne Kienbaum 2009

Dimensions: 200x 180x 110 each
Materials: wire, paper shredder, moss shredder, tiles and hand-writing

Concent Art, Kreuzbergstrasse 28, D-10965 Berlin

In order to illustrate the gap between high investments and low outcome of multimedia art installations the work tried to illustrate this issue by achieving the maximum size of an artwork for a minimum of investments: paper shredder and moss were recycled from personal waste for the exhibition, the wire was bought at a huge retail chain and brought back after the exhibition. Thus, overall expenses for this artwork were ony € 48,00. The work was accompanied by a cynical text written on the tiled walls: naming the artist’s production process including budgeting, overall art marketing and business, illustrated by a photo of Carl Spitzweg ‘the poor poet’.

‚Rice-Water-Salt‘

‚Rice, Water, Salt’
Light-Object
© Susanne Kienbaum 2007

Dimensions: 25x25x10 cm
Materials: rice paper, acryl, glass, wood
Edition: 7

I was invited to Kioskshop Berlin for the Intervention XXIII.

Referring to wax which is main material of Semjon I used rice paper which has the same appearance but the opposite flexibility: in opposite to wax rice paper breaks easily, in opposite to wax it is ‘hygrophil’ (it attracts water and is going to be destroyed by water).

The rice paper was fixed via acryl glass and fixed within a wooden frame.Therefore the rice paper became the appearance as if it would be floating in the air.

‚Hannah Arendt: Besuch in Deutschland 1950‘

‚Hannah Arendt: Besuch in Deutschland 1950’
Drawing | Object
© Susanne Kienbaum 2001

Dimensions: 250 x 149 cm
Materials: acryl, paper, collage pieces mounted on self-made cardboard

This drawing and paperwork uses excerpts from an essay written by Hannah Arendt: The essay with the German title ‘Besuch in Deutschland 1950’ was published in 1950 in the United States one year after the first visit of Hannah Arendt in Germany which took place sixteen years after her flight from Nazi Germany. She came to visit Germany in her role as director of the Commision on European Jewish Cultural Reconstruction. During her visit she was writing her 40-pages essay under the title  „The Aftermath of Nazi-Rule. Report from Germany“ which was published one year later in the United States. The German translation was only published 36 years later in the ‘Rotbuch-Verlag’ under the much ‘softer’ title ‘Besuch in Deutschland 1950’, a further translation in 1993, the latter completely under the sign of the end of the GDR and the German reunification. The text collages from 1950 – 5 years after the end of world-war II and Nazi-Germany – cited in this paper work are serving as a reference to the year 2001, approximately 10 years after the incorporation of the former German Democratic Republik (GDR) into the German republik. The collage pieces are derived from the ‘Shelter’-light installation (®) which shows minor language deviations indicating the ‘non-digestion’ of German world-war-II-history in daily life and associated newspaper articles collected during 2001 which was exhibited during the same show.
