A chair is still a chair even when there is no one sitting there. But a chair is not a house and a house is not a home when there is no one there to hold you tight
[Dionne Warwick – A House is Not a Home]

From June to September 2020, the international and trans-disciplinary platform K transforms Lothringer 13 Halle into a domestic setting which is at once usable and simulated. Here, models and practices of living together can be tested from an artistic perspective. More than 40 local and international artists and researchers followed the invitation to translate their approach to collective life into experiential formats during three activation periods over the course of several days. The transforming exhibition setup with its custom-made furniture will host lectures and performances. Practical skills will be shared in workshops and tried out together. Different hosts will invite guests and participants to dinner. By means of settings related to living and dwelling, K explores the potential for agency in collaboration with visitors. It also investigates tensions that arise from the encounter between a public institution and self-organized collective practice. 

This methodology is central to the approach of the artist initiative K, which has been meeting annually in different locations since 2013. K invites participants to translate current topics of their artistic and research practice into new and context-specific formats, following individual interests. K is organized by Isabel Bredenbröker, Sarah Lehnerer, Lennart Boyd Schürmann, Angela Stiegler and Felix Leon Westner.
