CONNECT Leipzig sees the MdbK offer space to young artists, giving them the opportunity to gather their first museum experience. An international jury
selected ten young applicants from 120 submissions received, with the works to be displayed in the Zündkerzen-Hof on the ground floor of the MdbK
at alternating four-weekly intervals, starting in March 2018.

Gregor Peschko
The process of exhibiting and its rampant medial exploitation on social media, YouTube and art blogs form the starting point for this exhibition. Between the mediating structures of the institution and the gaze of medial digital processing the space is transformed into a scenario awaiting potential utilisation. The exhibition in the alternative entrance area of the Zündkerzenhof acts like a reflection of the actual entrance, depicting the threshold to the artistic context and thus marking the starting point for a particular mode of reception. The second foyer is simultaneously removed from its actual function, more akin to a stage or film set. The location floats with a degree of lethargy between uselessness and possible activation, between standstill and potential utilisation and medialisation as a set.
