The apartment is the business card of the Sedentary. Before some years, the furniture store Ikea, with a Slogan of the lifestyle of the outgoing 20. Century to describe: “do You still Live or do You live already?”.

No place could better fit to the representative power of this longing to explore as the Baroque
Schloss Morsbroich in Leverkusen
. It has a hall of mirrors, a lot of decoration on the ceiling, and a wood-panelled hunting room. Curator Fritz Emslander says that many of the artists who in the past happened, dreamed, at the Schloss Morsbroich to live, and this desire through artistic interventions visible made. That, too, was for him an inspiration, the development of Housing for self-promotion in the art on the bottom of it.

A part of the creators of Ikea, whose half-yearly appearing catalog of cult status. Miriam Backström photographed in 1999 for the company’s own Museum, the interiors of the Möbelriesen – from the fifties to the Eighties.

To see are cosy, tastefully furnished rooms, armchair, attractive colours, creating a warm atmosphere. Impressively illustrated series, such as perfect spaces for the perfect family: happy, family, many children. The photos are deserted and look like film sets, just waiting for your protagonists to feel comfortable there. The decor is a mix of global finished product and cocoon has become, everywhere in the world arbitrary and interchangeable – allowing you the opposite of individual self-realization.

Live draws in the Museum

What is new is the subject of “Living” in contemporary art is not. At regular intervals there were in the past few years exhibitions. The Exhibition “Revealing Spaces. The interior itself as a portrait” in the Schloss Morsbroich in Leverkursen presents artistic approaches to the topic in a carefully arranged rooms next to each other and follows the motto: The inventory speaks of its inhabitants, your Self and your world.

Also in the Garage shows the ” I ” of the resident

Simone Demand can feel a between of living on: the Garage. Deserted rooms where the hoarding is, what is not value is, in the house to get a place. They show the downside of living: the place that is nothing Special anymore, wants to be.

Ralf Schulz’ series “reconstruction of unknown interiors” is an Arrangement of Ausrangiertem: First, he created a photographic archive of his found objects – chairs, desks, Sofas. Then he built from the junk realistic new spaces in his Studio. Thus preserved it from a single Sperrmüllhaufen the past of the former owner. And it reflects the cycle of living, in which people obsessively following the Wundermöbel search, the your apartment to a portrait of their own power, to the Selfie, which is different from the others.
