About

Joins us at V22 on Friday the 9th of Novmeber: Peles Empire (Katharina Stoever and Barbara Wolff) in discussion, chaired by Oliver Osbourne Talk to Peles Empire over a drink like in ye olden days. Ask a question and get a romanian plum spirit cocktail! Peles Empire is a collaborative work by Katharina Stoever and Barbara Wolff. The project borrows its name from the Romanian castle Peles, built between 1893 and 1913. The rooms of the castle copy different architectural styles of the past centuries, combining for example Art Deco, Orientalism, Renaissance and Rococo. The creators of this castle opposed any current d esign trend by establishing an almost ironic representation of the ideal" castle. Based on the idea to copy the copy, Peles Empire is interested in the quality shift through reproduction, and the processes that emerge by transforming three-dimensional to two-dimensional imagery and by reversing this shift.
