Jenny Brockmann


Togetherness as a Creative Practice

Jenny Brockmann’s (b. Berlin, 1976; lives and works in Berlin and New York) sculptures and participatory projects enact artistic research that scrutinizes dynamic spatial and social processes. In laboratory-like settings, she generates art objects and productive situations that invite the audience’s active involvement. Responding to current societal and political concerns with an experimental approach, Brockmann prompts questions concerning patterns of human behavior and social structures.

The series of installations and performances BYPASS was developed across a series of sites. Located at the intersection between art, scholarship, and research, the project illuminates the idea of connectivity from a multiplicity of perspectives and serves as a catalyst for the investigation of transdisciplinary discourses and collaborative methods.

The catalogue is released on occasion of the project BYPASS, which took place at the Goethe Institute, London, the Hearth Gallery, Cardiff, and documenta fifteen, Kassel. With a preface by Katharina von Ruckteschell-Katte, writings by Jenny Brockmann, Linda Rocco, Victoria Walsh, an essay on Félix Guattari’s concept of transversality by Henning Schmidgen, a conversation between Henning Schmidgen and the artist, and an interview by Danni Shen.
