HI VENTILATION - 20 YEARS: Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof, Germany

Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof, Germany 22 September - 10 November 2019 

Hi Ventilation, show me your winding winds and breathe some air into the corners! Let’s pretend we’re trains, let’s roll together, let‘s train surf and challenge structures, let’s find fresh air and free spaces!


During play, relationships can be shifted and reversed; social bonds and new ideas can emerge during free experimentation. During the dark times of 1938, Johan Huizinga formulated his idea of the "Homo Ludens"—the playing human being at the origin of culture—and defended the opening of possibilities in narrow times. In reflecting on what a Kunstverein can be, we wish to build upon this term with this exhibition: because to make a difference, we have to keep moving.
