MAKE IT FIT

Kunsthochschule Kassel – The New Media class is proud to present new works at panke.gallery, Berlin. The pieces range from installation, performance, screen-based and interactive works to video and film. ‘Make it fit’ refers to the restrictive cabin baggage rules of budget airlines, including their painfully meticulous control mechanisms. A lifestyle-conscious, hyper-mobile generation rattling trolleys along pavements has become the hallmark of gentrified neighborhoods in travel-hyped European capitals.

Kassel’s New Media students are using the classic travel suitcase as a constraint and metaphorical context for art production to meet the challenge of setting up a group show in Berlin in less than one day. Each work must fit into a suitcase to be transported, and setup time has to be either instant or not more than two hours. Hyper-mobile art also facilitates instant pop-up micro shows and performances in trains, in stations, and in other public spaces.

Curatorial processes often see artists selected on the basis of friendship networks or name dropping rather than actual works. How far can an artwork be ‘bent’ to make it fit an art show? An art market open secret is that paintings and sculpture that are small enough to fit in an ‘Upper Westside’ elevator have a better chance of being sold. Does it fit?
