Doris Lasch and Ursula Ponn define “What is art?”. Their approach takes a narrative style where the work is staged as a document. The starting point may be a real situation, as in the case of the project developed for les Urbaines. The two German artists refer to the architectural similarities between the spaces of the Lucy Mackintosh gallery and those of the Museo della Civilta Romana de Rome, where 500 boxes containing archeological artifacts have remained stored, in some cases since the end of the 19th century without anyone knowing the contents.
This exhibition is presented for Les Urbaines Festival, organised by the City of Lausanne.
