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.

Safe and Sound: The Third Dimension

This catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition Alona Rodeh. Architecture of the Nights at Kunstpalais from March 16t until June 10, 2019.

Alona Rodeh (1979 in Tel Aviv, Israel) creates large-scale, sometimes room-spanning installations that combine light, movement, and sound. Her art as a whole is fueled by her particular interest in the qualities of materials and objects that shape our visual environment—sometimes subtle and almost hidden, sometimes glaring and calling for attention. Often those are items in which aspects of security and visibility overlap. Fluorescent colors and reflective gear played and still play a central role in her works. In her latest productions, LED-elements, programmed for subtle choreographies by the artist, take center stage as new protagonists in her “performances without performers”.

Safe and Sound: The Third Dimension is a publication of an inherently hybrid nature. Published
on the occasion of Architecture of the Nights at Kunstpalais in Erlangen—Alona Rodeh’s first institutional solo exhibition in Germany—it functions as an exhibition catalog while at the same time it constitutes the third issue of Rodeh’s ongoing series of magazine-like, research-based artist publications titled Safe and Sound. The catalog features, among others, re-published historical texts, archive footage, advertisements, and scientific illustrations as well as newly commissioned contributions by external historians about the use of light and sound systems in nightclubs and the blackouts in Europe during World War II. Furthermore, a visual essay by Alona Rodeh traces the evolution of bollards in urban space over the course of more than five centuries.
