032c Workshop / Joerg Koch is pleased to present ˚360 by THOMAS SCHEIBITZ, exhibiting his entire artistic vocabulary.
Scheibitz was born in Radeberg in 1968 and began painting and sculpting while studying at the Dresden Art Academy. Deploying several different media, Scheibitz places special emphasis on sourced material culled from the annals of 20th century Modernism, and harvested from the tricks and tropes of contemporary graphic novels to cut-out magazine spreads and, of course, print advertising. The result is a subtle visual familiarity that haunts his wholly original painted, sculpted, and drawn body of work. His recent solo exhibition, “ONE-Time Pad,” at Frankfurt am Main’s Museum für Moderne Kunst, was devoted solely to investigating the human figure, yet sought to recreate and to tease out new ways of visualizing the familiar form, using popular culture and historical design motifs for which the artist has become known.

Tom Sachs, NIKECraft
… What TOM SACHS, as an artist, considers a large edition size, Nike runs off in prototypes testing iterations of a new sneaker. And yet born from the dynamic between Tom’s D.I.Y. aesthetic and the wide reaching Nike brand, comes an artisanal capsule collection, NIKECraft. Read more

KACZYNSKI/KELLER/KOSMAS – a conversation piece
032c Workshop / Joerg Koch is pleased to present the exhibition KACZYNSKI/KELLER/KOSMAS – a conversation piece by AIDS 3D, Daniel Keller and Nik Kosmas.
Ted Kaczynski (b. 1942), also known as the “Unabomber” is an American mathematician, anarchist, social critic, primitivist and Neo-Luddite. He injured 23 and killed 3 people in a mail bombing spree that spanned nearly two decades, while living as a recluse in a remote cabin. His manifesto Industrial Society and Its Future argued that his bombings were extreme but necessary to attract attention to the erosion of human freedom necessitated by modern technologies requiring large-scale organization. His story is a manifold one and reverberates with the discourses of nature, technology and society. He is, as was written in The New Yorker, America’s “own Raskolnikov – the appealing, appalling, and disturbingly visionary murderer of Crime and Punishment, Dostoyevsky’s masterwork of 1866, […] a philosophical criminal of exceptional intelligence and humanitarian purpose, who is driven to commit murder out of an uncompromising idealism.”
032c Workshop / Joerg Koch is pleased to present the exhibition EXPEDACTION by the artist group PIERRE JEANNERET, LE CORBUSIER, CHARLOTTE PERRIAND.
On a bleary, shadowless day this past January, Chandigarh’s coldest day in thirty years, Le Corbusier, his cousin Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, their gamine friend and protégée, processed down the ramps of the city’s High Court. It has been more than half a century, but the three friends knew the place well.
There is only the rumor so far. They went to India with a mission. They ended up doing the wrong thing in the right place. Or was it the other way around? Did they save something? Did they destroy anything? Who are we to tell? All that is left, today, is the present. And a sense of the future. There is no past. It was in Chandigarh, on January 6, 2011. It will always be tomorrow.
The German artist group stole two Pierre Jeanneret chairs from the rooftop of the High Court in Chandigarh.
032c Workshop / Joerg Koch is pleased to present KONSTANTIN GRCIC’s “Black2″,” an exhibition devoted entirely to one formal presence in product design: that of the black square. The industrial designer Konstantin Grcic has selected fifty disparate products, from a BASF audiocassette tape to a Chanel bag to an iPhone chip, each of which fits under that monolithic visual category. It is a form that has permeated millennia of cultural history, but what all its incarnations share is their artificiality: absent from the natural world, the black square is the icon of human creation. more
032c Workshop / Joerg Koch is pleased to present “Men and Women,” an exhibition of new works by photographer JUERGEN TELLER. Three series of portraits were selected for display in the space’s vitrine: two, shown here for the first time, deal with the masculine image, the coming into being and disappearance of a virility; a third, photographed in 2009, contrasts these portrayals with a feminine power. Teller’s five year-old son, Ed, poses as he lifts weights, runs on a treadmill and spins on a stationary bike at a hotel gym in the Maldives in late 2010.Next to Teller’s inheritor, we find his ostensible forebear: William Eggleston, pioneer of American color photography, now seventy-one. Photographed at his home in Memphis, also in 2010, Eggleston, too, gesticulates, balancing a drink in one hand as he plays “air piano” with the other. Between these two polar generations of male expression presides a serene Vivienne Westwood, portrayed in the nude as she reclines on a divan, timeless and smiling. more Images and Coverage
032c workshop / Joerg Koch is pleased to present THOMAS MAYFRIED’s “Archive Imaginaire,” a selection of the designer’s work, artifacts, and visual materials. In 2003, photographer and graphic designer Thomas Mayfried was selected to develop the visual identity for the Haus der Kunst, Munich. That effort, in which he remains intimately involved, was showcased at the Haus der Kunst last summer in “Thomas Mayfried. Ephemera. Graphic Design. Etc.” Curated by Swantje Grunder and Chris Dercon, whose own personal archive was featured at 032c workshop in 2008, the exhibition spotlighted the cumulative process of design, presenting not only Mayfried’s own printed materials, but also blueprints for Haus der Kunst, ephemera, and works from a diverse selection of artists, photographers and designers. ARCHIVE IMAGINAIRE thus at once continues Mayfried’s excavation of his own visual memory, and marks yet another installment in 032c workshop’s avid exploration of the notion of the archive – and the unique approaches of its archivist. more
Rubchinksiy grew up in the aftermath of Gorbachev’s political and economic restructuring, or Perestroika—a key factor in the fall of Communism. Once an avid reader of OM magazine, Russia’s answer to The Face, Rubchinskiy infiltrated his country’s burgeoning fashion scene as a stylist and makeup artist, and after five years on the circuit, he decided to begin his own label, thereby splitting with Moscow’s sartorial glamor. more
BAIBAKOV art projects is pleased to present the first installment of the “032c WORKSHOP Report” series, opening July 14, 2010.

Though disparate in medium, the works on display share a core ethos: a concentrated effort to provoke the present by confronting the past.
032c workshop / Joerg Koch is pleased to present CYPRIEN GAILLARD’s “Berlin Archive 2009–10.” A compilation of original works, source material, and ephemera from Gaillard’s past exhibitions, “Berlin Archive 2009–10” presents a library of images, texts, and artifacts that have affected and figured in Gaillard’s work during his current Berlin residency. more
BARKOW LEIBINGER ARCHITECTS are at the forefront of a generational shift in architectural experimentation based upon sustained forms of material research, digital fabrication, and the machinic assembly of buildings. In the early years of the 21st century a global proliferation of new networks, tools, and other technologies are transforming not only how architects work and think with industrially-manufactured building materials, but alsohow these otherwise familiar elements can now be subtly transformed into entire systems embodying greater malleability, variation, and control than ever before. more
