Katharina Monka’s “works”, her materials inserted into space, do not stand out, nor do they take centre stage, and they do not fulfil the expectation that something is being exhibited. Rather, they draw back from the gaze and diffuse themselves, as it were, through the real exhibition setting. In this way, everything actually stands out, everything becomes important, ever corner, every gap, every detail. There is neither a centre to be found in the spatial, nor a closure in the temporal. Everything the gaze skims over is part of the viewer’s present in space."
Prof. Dr. Erich Franz (Arthistorian, Acadamy of Fine Arts Münster)
