This work is a constantly accompanying reminder of how we may see or rediscover the world – that is, in different ways.
An interview with Cordula Sohst-Brennenstuhl and Dominic Brennenstuhl, the lenders of Till Krause's works - Achse Kiel-Hamburg, Blickfeldkarte and Handykarte.
What is the meaning of Till Krause’s topographic maps for you?
They give an impression of the differentiated possibilities of experiencing landscapes spatially and measuring them cartographically. In this way, Till conceptually shows the viewer his “measurement of the world,” his image of reality in which he himself forms the center.
It is about the view and the attention in and for the world and about letting the other participate exactly in this, to exchange about it and to develop further. This work is a constantly accompanying reminder of how we may see or rediscover the world – that is, in different ways.
Where have the works already traveled?
These maps have already been exhibited at the GAK Bremen and the Museum Weserburg, at the Kunsthalle Kiel and the Kunstverein Hamburg, at the Kunsthalle Hamburg and have been shown in our own home.
Do you travel for art or to art?
Of course we travel for art and to art. Every art lover does so, because art connects people, stimulates discussions and much more.
Are there other works in your collection that are travel-related?
If you also mean time travel or mind travel, then yes. Till Krause’s maps combine many topics that are reflected in the collection in different ways and can also be found in the different works of various artists.
Who travels more – you or your art?
At the moment, in Corona times, our art certainly travels more than we do.
