Fabian Bechtle / Leon Kahane – Republic of Boxes
uqbar Berlin, 2015
The exhibition Republic of Boxes brings together works of the Berlin (based) artists Fabian Bechtle and Leon Kahane, that address issues of control, flexibility and transparency in the context of current working environments. The environments, people work in today, appear as uniform sets constructed out of standaradized data and modules. The box serves a metaphor for the (mobile) working environment of the employee today, and moreover it is also a visual design element, a three-dimensional version of a composite image made up of pixels.
