Unseen CO-OP

For Unseen CO-OP – the new addition to Unseen, the international platform for contemporary photography – curator Lars Willumeit has selected RR together with 12 international art collectives to present themselves. Our first public presentation will be centered around a key work by El Lissitzky – In the studio, 1923 – and includes works by Martine Stig and Hiryczuk/ Van Oevelen. In addition we will show a new collaborative project by our first guest contributors Stephan Keppel and Hans Gremmen.

On the occasion of our launch we will issue a printed manifesto, designed by Hans Gremmen along with the first RR special editions of work by Hiryczuk/ Van Oevelen, Martine Stig, Stephan Keppel and El Lissitzky.
