Our art space has still no home in May, but designers Special Machine have just recently initiated their co-working/social space The Commodore Room in Karlsruhe. They not only have a great lounge and bar, but also hadn’t yet moved in their gear, so we “gallerified” their workspace for an exhibition of Frederik Busch‘s project BUSINESSPLANTS. Frederik made a series of portraits of plants as we find – or rather ignore – them in offices; a neglect that both tells us much about our attitude towards our fellow creature, and can be read as a metaphor for life (and suffering) in the office – a de-objectification of the business plant.
