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.
Evil Clowns _reloaded
This catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition Evil Clowns_reloaded at Kunstpalais from April 24 until June 26, 2016

The international group exhibition explores the often disquieting figure of the clown, which has made an ‘uncanny’ career in recent years. Today, (evil) clowns appear in a wide range of contexts including (anti-)advertisement, political activism, TV series, horror films and Hollywood productions, pop music, and contemporary art. The masqueraded jester makes us laugh—but with a laughter that quickly gets stuck in our throats: “Thereʼs Nothing Funny About a Clown in the Moonlight” (Lon Chaney).

The show features artistic positions that approach the topic of the clown in very diverse ways. Next to paintings, sculptures, and photography the Kunstpalais presents site-specific installations and performance(-documentations) that were produced especially for this exhibition. These diverse works are complemented by exhibits from popular culture, movies, music, and political activism.
