The Artist is Absent /
Mahela Rostek

Berlin, 2018

Anyone who follows the invitation and rings at LEER (Empty) in Hornstrasse 13 in Berlin will find an apparently empty apartment. The artist is absent. Two people with a photo album welcome visitors and tell them about the different events that happened in this apartment. On the walls there are traces of what was once there. At the end the visitor stands in front of a white door.
