Designed in collaboration with Anna Sartorius.

In her art practice Anette Rose uses strategies taken from documentaries. These deal with real life, while she works with the reduction of the real. She links her observations of workshops, laboratories, operating theatres, museums and libraries and her process of questioning in installations, in her “encyclopaedia of operations”. This catalogue documents this encyclopaedia within the context of the museum, while montages of her research material provide insight into artistic research as part of art practice. With an introduction by Ines Lindner.
