Through abstraction, superelevation and disassociation, the artist Claudia Larcher stages living spaces that explore architecture of the 20th and 21st centuries. In the Schauraum, two exhibits come into contact with each other: One of them is a video installation, Habitat (Silver Towers), which can be viewed as documentation of a stay abroad in a New York City apartment complex, and the other is the object „Floppy“. This exposes a façade structure, whereby fabric serves as the image carrier and assembly material. The application of fabric evokes the principle of a curtain wall – a 20th century construction type, the success of which Mies van der Rohe, among others, was greatly involved in furthering.
