„CABINET OF KAPUT“ ORIGINALLY STARTED IN 2016 BY SARAH SZCZESNY (WHO ALSO DESIGNED OUR BELOVED KAPUT LOGO), PETER ABS AND ALEX WISSEL AS A WEEKLY PUBLISHED ART SECTION ON OUR SITE. THE APPROACH WAS NOT A JOURNALISTIC ONE, INSTEAD THEY WERE PRESENTING ART WORKS MADE ESPECIALLY FOR THIS DIGITAL CONTEXT IN THE FORMAT OF 180 X 18 CM.
In 2017 (after a little pause) Sarah reanimated „Cabinet of Kaput“ together with Sabine Schiffer and since then they have been inviting artists like Yesim Akdeniz, Gerrit Frohne-Brinkmann, Pablo Castoldi, Norman Chernick-Zeitlin, Marieta Chirulescu, Simon Dybbroe Møller, Isabelle Fein, Vittoria de Franchis, Jessica Gisbert, Michael Hakimi, Simon Hemmer, Oliver Husain, Dorota Jurczak, Fernanda Laguna, Svea Mausolf, Jan Meier, Nie Pastille, Phantom Kino Ballett, Hedda Schattanik & Roman Szczesny, Franca Scholz, Timo Seber, Paul Sochacki and Francesco Vizzini.
During the pandemic the two reflected about how to transfer the digital format into a physical object – and created an edition of objects in the equivalent measures of 180 x 18 cm that appear like long and narrow columns, like cabinets or even stolas or scarfs. Those editions are right now for the first time ever shown at the Dutch Gallery Mieke van Schaijk in ’s-Hertogenbosch.
Sarah and Sabine were so kind to answer a few question about „Cabinet of Kaput“.
