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.

Sol Calero. Agencia Viajes Paraíso

This catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition Sol Calero. Agencia Viajes Paraíso at Kunstpalais, Erlangen from May 6 until September 24, 2017.

Sol Calero (1982 in Caracas, Venzuela) completely takes up the entire exhibition space. She combines installation art and painting, video art and sculpture to build sensuously intoxicating environments. At the same time, there is always a connection to the ‘outside’, the life beyond the museum walls. For the exhibition Agencia Viajes Paraíso, Sol Calero transformed the rooms of Kunstpalais into a summer-vacation-place of longing, which includes a real travel agency and a waiting room, Latin-American music, palm trees, deck chairs, and the water surface of a swimming pool. Playfully and with a wink, she shows her love for Caribbean colorfulness and patterns while simultaneously and subtly making the viewer think about ascriptions and prejudices, gender roles, and culture.
The trilingual catalog documents the exhibition with numerous installation views and close-ups. The texts by Amely Deiss and Sira Pizà Airas introduce Sol Calero’s works.
