The exhibition “Einknicken oder Kante zeigen? Die Kunst der Faltung” [Rather fold or be edgy? The art of folding] which runs until February 2015 in the Museum für Konkrete Kunst in Ingolstadt examines in detail the art of folding. For although we are all regularly confronted with folding and bending things in our everyday lives only few people are actually aware of it. 



 

By contrast, folding has played a large part within abstract art for a long time. The function of linear perspective in Cubism and later in Constructivism resulted both in painting and in plastic art to disjointed objects or objects with edges. Folding is not restricted to the medium of paper in any way but is also used with other materials such as textiles, metal, plastics and ceramics. In photography, too, we often find a reproduced crease used as an illusion.

 

This present exhibition focuses on contemporary interpretations of folding above all and seeks to approach the basic issues surrounding constructive and concrete art. Over 40 international artists drawn from the areas of painting, sculpture, video and photography have their works on show in the exhibition. Katja Strunz and Terry Haggerty, for example, designed a wall installation and a mural specifically for the exhibition.
