BEYOND-UNIVERSE
TOWARDS A THEORY OF EVERYBODY AND EVERYTHING
For Einstein & Hawking & Plank & Neumann, NN et cetera, perge, perge!
1989/2016

Objet trouvé/Readymade, Assemblage, 15-part puzzle, each maximal 0,60 x 0,60 x 0,60 m, pedestals 01 – 14, 1,44 x 0,615 x 0,615 m and glass dome 15, 0,50 x 0,50 x 0,50 m with modelling trestle 15, 0,92 x 0,86 x 0,86 cm

From the moving 2D image, the exhibition develops into space: the 3D-MEISTER-SONETT shows 15 ready-mades in which prop design and found objects are mounted. On their way to the exhibition, visitors pass display cases in which, for example, a Wehrmacht typewriter, an analog camera, an iPhone, and other technical devices are mounted to create bizarre objects. The installative master sonnet takes in the surroundings and infiltrates them with alienation effects. Some of the ready-mades reflect artistic and non-artistic media. Assemblage 15 “ÜBER-ALL: Towards a Theory of Everybody and Everything, For Einstein & Hawking, Plank & Neumann, NN et cetera, perge, perge!“ summarizes the elements 01 – 14 in itself. The ready-made shows a cross-section through Runge’s color sphere, through the syntax of the entire color spectrum, in the form of a record on a record player: gramophone, film, typewriter – media technology changes, and with it what can be heard and seen in the media also changes. The readymade is an element of a plastic audiovisual media theory.
