In the context of this exhibition, the 3eck Collective will bring life to the great basin of Stattbad (old public swimming pool). David Lichtenauer has built a skateable puzzle piece called “Lars” in the shallow end of the pool, while in the gallery the minutely crafted works of Berlin based photographer Henrik Biemer are brought together with the raw photographs of the Bosnian artist Sergei Vutuc.
