guest curator of this exhibition, which is taking place in the four external galleries, is max borka / brussels. max borka is art director of designbrussels and a founding member of the belgian ministry of design. his aim is to consider hitherto unknown aspects of german design from an international perspective. the focus will not be on industrial products, but installations, performances and processes. ‘nullpunkt’ will exhibit works by outsiders, emigrants and immigrants like jerszy seymour, marti guixé and el ultimo grito. ‘nullpunkt’ / zero point is the first exhibition under the direction of roland nachtigäller, jan hoet’s successor and the new director of marta herford.
