Never odd or even is a text-spaced exhibition that unfolds in mental and architectural chapters through perspectives created by textual artworks. The artworks presented derive from Concrete Poetry, Dadaist and Futurist Manifestos, as well as techniques of mind mapping. The exhibition is shaped as a book, formatted in spatial chapters that invite the visitors to become the co-authors. Imaginary space is rendered tangible through text and movement. Artworks appear as wall text, projection, spoken, enacted and filmed prose, activating the architectural space in ways that amplify the meaning of the words and the worlds inside.
The point of departure of the exhibition and it’s title comes from the legendary book and performance project, Never odd or even, 2005-2011, by Berlin-based artist Mariana Castillo Deball (Mexico, 1975). Her project consists in ‘a book of unwritten books’, 30 book covers designed by creative producers selected by the artist and published as one book. A new edition of the Never odd or even book has been invented and published (by Bom dia boa tarde boa noite) for this exhibition. The imagined content of these ‘unwritten books’ will be performed during the exhibition by well-known German authors like Ingo Niermann together with poets, theoreticians, and artists.
