The Shop: Books, Art and Pretty Things

The artworks, the atmosphere, the joy, the interesting and the special can also be taken home – on paper. In close cooperation with the respective artist, we produce elaborate catalogs and artist books, which are as individual in form and content as the corresponding artworks themselves. You can find more details about the layout, authors and texts below under the individual title.
In keeping with the Municipal Art Collection, which specializes in multiplied art, some artists also produce graphics or multiples so that we can offer them to visitors to Kunstpalais. So far, one of a kind 3D-printed sculptures by Florian Meisenberg, a cap with LED lights by Alona Rodeh, and prints by Grace Weaver and Vivian Greven are available here.
People who like art also like to surround themselves with beautiful things, as we know from our own experience. That’s exactly the reason why Kunstpalais has a curator-curated museum store with jazzy, eye-catching, unconventional things that we’d like to own ourselves or would love to give as gifts: Jewelry made from laser-cut Plexiglas or crocheted yarn from Japan, England, and Australia, fine leather cooking aprons from the Netherlands, plant planets and gem galaxies from Denmark, special pieces of tableware and vases from ancient times – and whatever else we are able to find.
Our books, prints, and multiples can also be ordered online; everything else can be found exclusively on our store shelves in Kunstpalais until further notice. For urgent repeat orders or desires awakened via our Instagram account – we will gladly try to send you these things as well. 
Purchases with a value of up to 100 EUR will be sent to you on account within Germany. For purchase values over 100 EUR we send the good immediately after receipt of a proof of payment.

Affekte / Emoties / Gemengde Gevoelens

This catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition Affects at Kunstpalais, Emoties at Gemeentemuseum Helmond, and Gemengde Gevoelens in the Cultuurcentrum Mechelen.

Affects are an essential stimulant for processes of socio-political change. They have an impact on our social and political planning, on public debates and values, they form an important part of our culture, social life, and politics. Affects question existing power structures and gain in importance the more affect-driven people clash with an opposing financial, military, or state administration. Affects are extremely individual, they arise and develop in human interactions between supporters and opponents. However, affects also describe communication processes and demand participation in things to come.

These observations formed the stimulus for this extraordinary exhibition cooperation between Kunstpalais in Erlangen, the Gemeentemuseum Helmond, and the Cultuurcentrum Mechelen, titled Affekte – Emotions – Mixed Emotions, the exhibitions dealt with the increasing importance of affects on society. The extensive catalog introduces the conceptual approaches of the discourse surrounding affects and features the participating artists in interviews.
