SpecialTour Birke Gorm: dead stock in context of the International Women's Day

Collecting archaic, easily accessible, often accidentally found material such as jute, terracotta, wood, and metal is characteristic of the work of Birke Gorm (born 1986 in Hamburg).

MAK – Museum of Applied Arts
Her sculptures convey a raw, appealing immediacy whose multilayered levels of meaning can be decoded upon closer inspection. She places the autonomy of the material in relation to historically traditional techniques and the associated distribution of gender roles. She combines the archaic with the aesthetics of the digital using current topics such as work, self-optimization, and social processes. 
Language: The tour is held in German.
Tour fee: € 5 + admission to the museum
Meeting point: MAK Columned Main Hall
