Künstlerkollektiv FORT

BESCHREIBUNG

The artist collective FORT, made up of Alberta Niemann (1982 in Bremen) and Jenny Kropp (1978 in Frankfurt am Main), moves like a seismograph through our contemporary everyday world, tracing current social, political, and economic events and developments. A key part in their artistic practice is played by the assimilation, transformation and staging of different situations that they either find or create for themselves. On occasion their detailed arrangements – which are often produced in connection with performative interventions – resemble stages or experimental set-ups.

They start out from these to examine and disclose mechanisms of consumer society and the art mar-ket, the conditions of current art production, or the prevailing ideas about a place. It is frequently possible to discern borrowed forms or content from film, literature and music, which are subtly interwoven in the group’s works. In their inter-ventions, performances and installations, on the one hand FORT respond to existing structures and conditions; at the same time, the artists add alien aspects to their found situations and play with our perception and a re-contextualising of the apparently familiar. (Lotte Dinse)
