Stephan Blumenschein @ Goleb’s studio.

In his artisti cresearch Stephan Blumenschein addresses practices in and around the exhibition space and exhibition making with a special focus on the architectural conditions, the organisation of time and the visibilty produced and demanded by the exhibition space. Using tools such as protocols, instructions, promises or timetables he proposes “the aesthetic encounter” as an emboddied dramaturgy and shared experience.
