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.

Johannes Vogl. Machinery Misfits

This catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition Johannes Vogl. Machinery Misfits at the Kunstpalais from July 16th till September 4th 2016.

Johannes Vogl (born in 1981) builds idiosyncratic machines and sculptures out of everyday objects. The materials’ appearance is almost unaltered. Due to the used materials the aesthetic of the works are often raw, rough, and unpolished. What has changed is the way they function and what they do. The sculptures and machines that used to serve us in our everyday life do not fulfill a useful task anymore but seem to be stuck in endless loops and occupied with monotonous soliloquies. The exhibition title Machinery Misfits characterizes them as freaks that only follow their own rules. The relation between human and sculptures, subject and object, observer and the observed shifts in favor of the material world. The objects are not being used and thereby become passive but also develop their own strange dynamic and inner logic.
Kunstpalais presented Johannes Vogl’s first institutional solo exhibition focusing on his most recent works. The artist created two new works for the solo show that were shown to the public for the first time. The accompanying catalog contains numerous color illustrations, installations views, art history texts, and an extensive interview with the artist.
