Out of Office

Office Art or the Office in the Museum

The “Out of Office” exhibition in the Museum für Konkrete Kunst in Ingolstadt takes the office as an emblem of modern society and its principles of organisation. In it, concrete artists see the office as a sign of regulation, order, administration, bureaucracy, dominance, and exercise of power. Bureaucratic tasks are marked by following regulations strictly and rigidly, in ways which are normally found in mathematical operations and religious rituals. Even today in this increasingly digitalised age, analogous aids such as sticky notes and rulers continue to be used and therefore are reconfigured by the artists as objects in new constellations.
