Johannes Büttner has developed a diverse body of works, often arranged in comprehensive spatial installations. He negotiates present and past, speculative as well as science-based socio-economic topics. Thereby he thinks about the future in all its potentialities, but with an awareness of planetary crises. In order to sketch future scenarios, he avoids to reproduce an established, capitalist rhetoric influenced by Silicon Valley and the tech industry, but rather contrast it with subcultural practices, different forms of hacking, queering, DIY practices and calls for self-organization. His work contextualizes the space in which it happens and often integrates people standing outside of the art world. (...)

In her sculptural work, Birgit Cauer seeks to experimentally reconstruct the fascinating and difficult-to-imagine process of the emergence of the living in stone and to make it visible as traces. To do this, she penetrates into the interior of the stone and leaves it more and more to experimental test arrangements, through which it virtually shapes itself. Sculptures, drawings, experimental arrangements and - partly also participatory projects - in public spaces are created, in which the activation of the energetic potential inherent in the respective material and place plays a central role.
