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.

Mike Bourscheid. Pisces and Capricorns

Mike Bourscheid (b. 1984 in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg) designs and creates multilayered and symbolically charged costumes and sculptures, making them the focus of his spatial installations, video works, and performances.

In 2017, Bourscheid caused a sensation at the Venice Biennale with his "Idealverein," a work conceived for the Luxembourg Pavilion. He lets his protagonists* wear the self-made, -pottery, -forged or -carved costumes and objects with great matter-of-factness. The cowboy boots, leather skirts and bodices tell stories, refer to typical role patterns of the wearers and their place in history. But does that automatically make a character a princess, a cowboy, a father? Based on film props and inspired by the relationship to the single mother as well as the absent father, Bourscheid addresses interpersonal relationships in his works. In these humorous works, the artist plays with roles and identities and questions the reliable interpretation and expressiveness of figure, masculinity, stature, and clothing as mischievously as urgently.

The publication Pisces and Capricorns is published to accompany Bourscheid's first solo exhibition in the German-speaking world, shown at the Kunstpalais Erlangen, and provides the first comprehensive insight into his work.
