Marl – a Ruhr city as an urban utopia? Inspired by the now legendary 1950s urban planning project in Marl, British artist Charlotte Mothʼs new film The story of a different thought (2014) explores the secrets and shortcomings of an architectural Gesamtkunstwerk and the many stories entwined within this “modernism indebted” building complex. The film was made as part of the Production Grant given by the Kunstproduzenten, Cologne, marking the first of its grants to a young, German or international artist in the field of electronic and digital media.
Opens: Friday 14th, 4 p.m.

The Registry of Promise is a series of exhibitions that reflect on our increasingly fraught relationship with what the future may or may not hold in store for us. These exhibitions engage and play upon the various readings of promise as something that simultaneously anticipates a future, its fulfillment or lack thereof, as well as a kind of inevitability, both positive or negative. Such polyvalence assumes a particular poignance in the current historical moment.
