On the occasion of celebrating 7 years LAGE EGAL, the off-site exhibition IF THIS THEN THAT2 negotiates the subject of the potential.
The title points to a procedural programming language accomplishing binary conditions.
“Der Lauf der Dinge” a video by Fischli/Weiss 1987 reflects upon the role of the human being as creator and plays on the notion of “if this then that” when a single hand’s move starts off a chain reaction of art production similar to the Rube-Goldberg-Apparatus.
In the context of “what happens if…” seven artists – Jofroi Amaral, Peter Freitag, Pierre Granoux, Sibylle Jazra, Astrid Köppe, Lukas Troberg, Michaela Zimmer – take up the idea of the possible, the potential and the uncertain.
IFTTT2 takes place during Galleryweekend Berlin at Reinbeck-Hallen, in the district of Oberschoeneweide, a recently restored industrial factory setting at the river Spree.
