Out of the attic ad hoc show

Out of the attic ad hoc show was a series of impromptu art shows focused on unrealized ideas and works, tucked away in one’s attic, in order to bring them to a public one. The name ad hoc also refers to the space where the show was made, an unused attic space in a building owned and rented by an antisquat company called Ad hoc.

Local artists whose work deals with space in a bigger or smaller degree were invited during a short time frame to place or make something they seem fitting to this particular setting.

By appropriating the space of the attic, inhabited with personal stories, we carried out an attempt of displacement, how previously unrelated works can blend into an unaltered, distinct space.

Part of the experience from one of the events is available to see in the beautiful documentation Florian Cramer recorded and edited, using the sound from the concert and the visuals of the space in the process of preparing the event.
