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.

With works by Becky Beasley, Michael Dean, Jean-Luc Moulène, Matt Mullican, Reto Pulfer, Lucy Skaer & Carlo Gabriele Tribbioli

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.

Loek Grootjans (b. 1955 in Arnemuiden) collects and keeps a record of whatever touches him as an artist and a human being. In 2008 he launched Storage for Distorted Matter, a wide-ranging project that sets out to register and store life. Thus for many years the artist collected the dust in his studio, as well as Vincent van Gogh’s native soil; he also stored the water in which drowned bodies washed ashore on the Dutch island of Vlieland. For De zaak Piet Mondriaan, part of Storage for Distorted Matter, Grootjans collected the light that Mondriaan must have seen when he first arrived in Domburg in 1908. The result is an installation at De Kabinetten van De Vleeshal, entitled Storage for Distorted Matter (Case P.M.). P.M. stands for Piet Mondriaan
