Sandwich Gallery

Public gallery on Brick Lane London


Sandwich Project was a house corner art project on Brick Lane in London, a street which leads to the famous Brick Lane Market. In 1997, over a couple of months every Sunday for about 2 to 3 hours Stefan Saffer invited artists to participate in the project and this particular house corner became a stage for very diverse art projects. The Art was not announced and people passed by to and from Brick Lane Market which takes place every Sunday.



@ House of Cultures of the World , Berlin (Ueberlebenskunst Festival) 17–21 August 2011

AusterTraum started as a research project at the House of Cultures of the World, Berlin within the larger framework of an exhibition called Ueberlebenskunst. Together with cultural scientist Birgit Schneider we started to look at the question of sustainability in art and culture. Interviews with experts such as geologists, ethnologists or cultural scientists were conducted and we also asked staff members of the House of Cultures about sustainability in art. In our research we came across the oyster as a symbol for survival and we found out that the term "ecology" was first created by a biologist who investigated oyster banks. We visited a oyster scientist at the north sea who showed us new oyster banks whith pacific oyster growing in the north sea water. This growths was only possible due to global warming which caused a warmer water temperature. The oyster and our visit in the slick of the north sea became to be a story for a very small mini book in which we presented a compendium of thoughts for the future. The book can be purchased at lostbooks (its only available in german language)
