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.

Peter Land: Absolute Perfection

The catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition Peter Land: Absolute Perfection at Kunstpalais from January 18 until March 24, 2013.

The works of Peter Land (1966 in Aarhus) revolve around the subject of the human being and their failure in accomplishing everyday as well as existential life tasks. The artist presents the delicate human condition in a wide variety of media forms. In one video, for example, the entertainer loses control over his body and falls, stone-drunk, off his chair to the ground in front of his audience. In another work, a painter keeps slipping off a ladder while he is working, or an arm vainly waving in distress juts out of the top of a large-scale room installation made of bricks. The catalog presents the artist’s oeuvre in images as well as in texts on such topics as the theatric or the image of the man as created by Peter Land along with his examination of issues such as upbringing and the meaning of childhood.
