Frosch im Topf - FiT for Future?

Etzler's solo exhibition Frosch im Topf - FiT for Future? is about sustainable strategies. It's presentation follows the idea of the Wunderkammer - a cabinet of curiosities. Within that frame she works with display and dialogue, with photos and video, with talks, workshops and discussions. A retrospective of Etzler's work is combined with current projects, ordinary everyday objects are placed in a relationship with artworks. More than 50 items and events contribute to the show.

The collection-like nature of FiT corresponds to our complex planet and allows us to discover multiple connections and cross references. FiT is suggestion and interpretation, transformation and mystery, play and fun.



The spatial concept of FiT applies a second layer of room layout that overlaps with the given floor plan. Four red lines on the floor divide and at the same time connect the 3-room exhibition space. Thus new spatial sections are introduced to house all exhibits that are assigned to the four main topics of FiT: weather, traffic, humans and objects.

Elements of this strategy are the use of second hand equipment, recycled paper, re-usable fittings and hanging devices, transportation by bicycle and sole use of daylight.
