From the English press release

“With Women Between Buildings, the Kunstverein in Hamburg presents the first survey exhibition of Nicole Wermers in Germany. The artist works in series of sculptures and creates worlds of objects drawn from mundane everyday design. Functional elements thus become ornaments of a socio-political and historical engagement with our immediate surroundings, based on the formal language of modernism or the urban space around us. Thoroughly designed urban space, in which all visual, haptic and audible features are strategically shaped, is characterized by affects. Wermers exposes precisely these stimulants and points to how humans are formed by aesthetic things. As Walter Benjamin described in 1928, things press too closely on human society. A distance needs to be created to understand how people are forced to function in the social system. 

The show features pieces from the past ten years, including Untitled Chairs of the exhibition Infrastruktur which was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2015, as well as two new sculptures created especially for the Kunstverein."
