For her 'invasion' in the Galerie Anita Beckers, the consume-critic Stephanie Senge compares the art market to the supermarket. Starting from her consume-constructivist pictures, she created a model and manifest for this exhibition. The white cube of the gallery will be colorfully painted and the works expand to create a constructivist room installation. The artist's goal is to appropriate a transformation in the everyday, specifically our relationship with the supermarket. The model supermarket, along with Senge's manifest, will be presented along with the first Consume-Product-Editions. The question 'can one experience art or change thoughts through shopping, like by visiting an art gallery?' will be publicly discussed through the exhibition.
Senge has been dealing with the subject of constructivism for the past few years. In 2011, sie created different image-series, the latest being Konsumkonstruktivismus III (Consume-Constructivism III). In the exhibition in the Museum für Konkrete Kunst in Ingolstadt, Senge concentrated on works from those collections. These works will also be exhibited in the Galerie Anita Beckers. Senge follows idealistic and space-consuming ideas of constructivism simultaneously breaking through the ideology of our consume products. She is a consume-idealist.
