The "realizable utopias" of Tomás Saraceno defy common conceptions of space, time, and gravity. A glimpse into his world of thoughts and the complex process involved in creating the artwork for the exhibition In den Umlaufbahnen (In Orbit) at K21 in 2013 can be seen in the education space, Labor.
in collaboration with Frank Bungarten
In collaboration with guitarist Frank Bungarten, Thomas Struth presented Musik in the Labor, the exhibition space of the Department of Education. This project ran parallel to the exhibition and provided a striking acoustic counterpoint to the varied visual impressions encountered in the exhibition. Musik promoted a heightened experience of the works in the permanent collection. Audible was a selection of music chosen by Struth and Bungarten which united pieces from a variety of cultures and genres.

Launched to coincide with the museum’s reopening and set in the Labor, the new presentation space of the Department of Education, will be an exhibition series featuring contemporary artists who seek to come to terms with the museum context and with the role of the visitor. Exhibitions will choreograph the participatory interplay – even to the point of role reversal – between beholder, work, and artist.
