This exhibition dedicated to the work of Belgian artist Koenraad Dedobbeleer shows over 40 artworks including 15 new productions. These include sculptures, photographs, a slide projection, a collection of books and works on paper.


Dedobbeleer’s practice explores sculpture, design, architecture and systems of display. He examines how value is ascribed to certain materials and practices, always with a lightness of touch or understated sense of humour.

The show’s title, Kunststoff, is a German word that translates as “plastic” but which is composed of the words “art” and “material”. Drawing upon the museological convention of labelling as “material culture” anything that cannot be otherwise classified, the subtitle hints at Dedobbeleer’s ambivalence about contributing further to the mass of objects produced since the dawn of mankind.

The exhibition is accompanied by Dedobbeleer’s first monograph, which traces the development of his practice since 2006 through a selection of 16 generously illustrated exhibitions.
