Theatre of Immanence


Portikus, Frankfurt am Main, 2007

The group exhibition Ben van Berkel & the Theatre of Immanence consists of an advanced installation designed by Ben van Berkel, together with Prof. Johan Bettum and Luis Etchegorry. The installation, named The Thing, consists of an upper and a lower level. The upper level serves as a form of theatre and the lower level as a more traditional exhibition space. The installation houses a series of works by artists and architects who have participated in the one-year long experimental project, entitled The Space of Communication, a project by the Städelschule Architecture Class, which consisted of a group of international artists and architects investigating various aspects of the contemporary conditions for social interaction and communication. The exhibition presents an advanced shape projection design on architecture.
