News in the shape of news paper. I can consume it or try and keep it out. Which other ways of wearing, bearing or carrying the news are there? Allun Turner took pictures of me with a news texture I made.
Altering News has been my biggest solo show so far. On four floors more than 70 pieces that I worked on in the past two years were on view, many of them for the first time. Here are some impressions:

Workshop area of the exhibition
Altering News questions how we build a physical and emotional contact with newspaper, as material, as medium, as news. In the attic of the water tower, visitors were invited to explore the topic with their own hands.

Looking back on the exhibition, I am thankful for the chance to create a specific and spacious atmosphere in the extensive premises of the water tower and encouraged by the interest and resonance from visitors. It has also been valuable for me to be in contact with the city of Dachau, a city whose very name elicits physical and emotional reactions.
