Why “Momentous”?

Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden has been organizing editions since the 1990s. There have been many artists who have worked together with the Kunsthalle to provide timely offers for our visitors, audiences and communities.

They say, “Every collector collects themself” but we add, every edition is an opportunity to preserve the zeitgeist. Considering the structural changes we initiate at the Kunsthalle since the beginning of our appointment, we have also decided to rethink the editions with the currency of our time.

We present artwork editions, which might not only bring financial support for the loss of ticket sales during the pandemic but also put forward a new way of collecting, preserving and being engaged with artistic research and production.

What you can not find during the Covid-19 pandemic at the art market is released as special opportunities through conversations, studio visits, commissions and also research on further production possibilities. We would like to connect with a new profile and generation of collectors, who are interested in being involved with the process of artists and their studios in Post Covid-19.

Momentous Editions are developed to revise the negotiations between the institution and the artists based on the necessities of our time, such as solidarity, collaborative thinking and support structures. They are available to our network, and they also operate as entry points for those who want to be engaged with the research and content development at the Kunsthalle. Each one is numbered and signed with love, hope and passion here. Starting from 300 euro, they target a range of interests with diverse motivations.

We are thankful to Yael Bartana, Mehtap Baydu, Egemen Demirci and Assaf Kimmel who have actively participated in the discussions for imagining a future Kunsthalle together with the experience of practicing in Germany. They present recent editions from their work to support the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden.

Jazz Night with Thomas Neuhauser (CANCELED)

Crossing borders and interrogation of patriarchal structures are characteristic of the work of the artist VALIE EXPORT. While the exhibition shows how important touch is in her work, in a literal and figurative sense, jazz and improvised music with their emancipatory listening experiences are not far away. Thomas Neuhauser – longtime ARTE editor for film and music – will once again trace these connections on this evening with fitting musical examples. Due to a limited number of seats, please register in advance at or call 07221 30076 400.

Stefani Glauber

In her solo presentation, Stefani Glauber explores a possible future in which scent is almost completely digitized. Scents can be registered by sensors and thus identified systematically. In reference to the religious ceremonial of burning incense, Glauber presents a scent that places the person carrying it into the social centre: in the absence of illness, old age and poverty, into the most hierarchical position within social power structures. The resulting scent is simultaneously a mask, a protective shield, with which the wearer can position themselves away from the social periphery. An olfactory filter, a product of the future.

The exhibition is curated by Carolin Potthast.
