Der flüsternde Raum is supported by SK-Stiftung Kultur.
In this exhibition series, every two months an installation artist was invited to build a work especially considered for the space on the upper floor of a gallery building. Concerning the matter that this room was also used as my private appartment, the works were set into a social context and gave the chance to discuss the idea of art and science in an intimate and non white-cubish atmosphere.
