10 Reasons to be a Member #15 Xabi Salaberria

08.02.2008 — 27.04.2008

Opening: February 7, 2008, 7 pm

The focus of Basque artist Xabi Salaberria’s work is the relationship between material, use and the ‘meaning’ of design. Salaberría is concerned with understanding the interactions between people and things in contemporary society. The questions Salaberría raises and investigates about our relationship with objects, may in a modest way contribute to a better understanding of our real needs. For his presentation in the Frankfurter Kunstverein, Salaberría, who previously developed the design for the Café im Kunstverein together with Gorka Eizagirre, is presenting a display structure that emphasizes the importance of a discursive element in the activity of the Kunstverein.
