The Sprengel Museum Hannover, the kestnergesellschaft and the Kunstverein Hannover together present an overview exhibition of the international, contemporary art scene in Germany under the title "Made in Germany Zwei".
The exhibition presents from 17 May to 19 August 2012 about 40 pathbreaking positions of a younger generation of international artists, who live and work in Germany. With this exhibition the three institutions of Hannover continue the successful show "Made in Germany" from the year 2007.
For "Made in Germany Zwei" the idea of "Made in Germany" was advanced by a team of curators of all three institutions: The exhibiton will be curated by all of the three institutions. Many of the artists developped new workings especially for "Made in Germany Zwei".

The title of Marcellvs L.’s video installation consists of the geographical coordinates of the place where the images emerged. Five parallel screens show five views of corridors that are intersected by passageways. The cameras point in the same direction, but from five different fixed positions, show the corridors’ own axial symmetry. The views are disrupted at random intervals by people crossing and wandering through the corridors, shifting in scale because of the different camera’s positions. This activity does not follow any recognizable rhythm or pattern. The view of the place becomes an irritating abstraction, as suggested by the work’s title. The geographical data are just as precise as they are abstract, while the symmetry of the place restricts human movement to two dimensions: the people cross the camera’s field horizontally or they move about in the depths of the space. The formal consistency of the presentation is further broken on two temporal levels: the videos were recorded over a six months period, yet at different intervals. Furthermore, the different lengths of each video, from 8 to 40 min, result in overlapping within their duration.
In his work, Marcellvs L. creates a place that appears to exist solely in the present, but which cannot be situated in reality.
