In the exhibition «Helmpflicht», the construction site comes into the focus of art. The works show captured moments of transience and transition or create them themselves. Sometimes it is also about dangers, shifts and their potential failure.
Together with the Kunsthalle Darmstadt, the Darmstädter Sezession is developing an experimental format as part of the festival «Den Bogen Spannen – 100 Jahre Darmstädter Sezession». During the reconstruction of the Kunsthalle`s forecourt in August and September 2019, the experiment will take advantage of the special situation and address it for one month.
