Tauba Auerbach, born in 1981 in San Francisco and now living in New York, traces the visible and invisible patterns, structures, and rhythms that shape our universe. Likewise, Auerbach’s artistic gaze is oriented towards the microcosmic and macrocosmic that constitute the complexity of being. To this end, the artist explores various scientific disciplines, such as mathematics, physics, anatomy, linguistics, and philosophy while not infrequently adopting their rules and methods in an unconventional, willful manner. A special focus of interest lies on those areas that cannot be clearly measured, ascribed, or explained. Ambiguities, interstices, and borderline phenomena are thus a recurring theme. Auerbach’s works, featuring paintings, drawings, weavings, films, artist’s books, typography, and sculptures, can be seen as sensitive associations of this artistic research. They are, on the one hand, characterized by an innovative, and in some cases highly unusual aesthetic and language of form and, on the other, by a remarkable versatility, affording Auerbach a unique position in contemporary art discourse. The show at the Fridericianum features new works, some developed especially for Kassel, which are complemented by older, site-specific staged pieces.

The publishing project Diagonal Press was founded by Tauba Auerbach in 2013 and aims to continuously give more space to their experiments in the fields of typography, book design and production, as well as the applied arts. The spectrum of its output ranges from books, calendars, posters, and flags to toys, accessories, and jewelry. These are produced in unlimited and unsigned editions in order to make them accessible to a broad public. Under the title DIAGONAL PRESS LIBRARY, the Fridericianum presents a selection of printed matter and objects published by Diagonal Press, which visitors are invited to explore and engage with.
