A group show on eBay Kleinanzeigen

What happens when you reinterpret a platform for classified ads as public space and use it as the site of an online art exhibition? “Odds Without Ends” is site-specific exhibition on eBay Kleinanzeigen, the largest online platform for classified ads in Germany. For many of us, the platform became a life-line during the stay home order. With many using their time in lockdown to declutter their living spaces, the platform became a place to hang out and see what neighbours were getting rid of.

Using eBay Kleinanzeigen as an exhibition space brings art directly to bargain hunter's homes, invading their screens, grabbing their attention and winning their hearts. This series of artworks uses the ad-space as its canvas and networked space as its show room to open up debates about value, ownership, public vs. private and the entanglement of online and offline spaces. The works within the exhibition unfold over 60 days, each with their specific life-span, mode of exchange and participation. Each work is live for a limited time only, to be discovered by chance orwith intent.

The students of the State Academy of Arts and Design Stuttgart (ABK Stuttgart) will present their latest art works and study projects digitally and analogously on this year's tour from July 17 to 19, 2020, most of which were created in one semester of digital teaching at the ABK Stuttgart.

While our campus must remain closed due to the current situation, the work of around 900 students of liberal and applied arts is not shown in situ, but online on an interactive platform. Performances, artistic experiments, video works and seminar projects from architecture, design, art and art science restoration are combined into a large virtual show via live streaming, 360-degree recordings and video and are accessible to the public far beyond the borders of the university campus. Only the windows of individual academy buildings serve as space for the presentation of art. The tour's satellites in urban areas form a series of small exhibitions by students, including in shops, cafés and institutions such as the Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart. Public billboards are designed by students and artistic works and projects are staged on the balconies and in the windows of student apartments.
