Letters from a foreign mind

“Letters from a foreign mind” focuses on values in social context and explores themes like scarcity, neglect and care, highlighting in the process the many changes in EKKM’s recent past and near future. The building of EKKM has seen countless repairs and spatial renovations during its lifetime but is nevertheless tired and slowly crumbling. The physical and symbolic cracks are the subject matter and the habitat for artistic ideas, for visitors’ memories, its employees’ proposals, an abundance of dust and artworks that have been left behind. As a prologue to the exhibition, EKKM established a community garden in its backyard last spring, allowing to explore the openness and the wider use of space within the institution.
