Das KloHäuschen

For the 4th KloHäuschen Biennial the Munich based architect Matthias Castorph transforms Das KloHäuschen into an exhibition space – referring to Brian O’Doherty’s book „Inside the White Cube“ (Berkely, Los Angeles, London 1986).

Matthias Castorph becomes a “Public health inspector in no-mans-land”, and creates “A spatial collage cleaned from references to Marcel D. and his urinals –from a health inspector with covers. Looking for connections to Piet M.’s „Salon de Madame B.“ and relying on its inner structure – the grid. Hygienic aesthetics „inside the white cube“. Reminiscence of meaning through spatial volume – an attempt at volumetry without meaning. A piece of space – space generated by culling and cutting off (…)“.
