For his “Studio Projects”, Peter Garmusch sets up temporary studios on site in which he creates photographs, installations and sculptures. A characteristic feature of his working method is the discovery of and engagement with local conditions. Garmusch highlights the sculptural character of the objects he encounters and thus creates compositions of everyday life. Openness is the artist’s guiding principle when he explores situations and instils previously unknown meanings into them. The object is released from its traditional attributions, and becomes an actor and narrator of its own history.

Hundreds of used car radiators piled up in a backyard corner to form a wild tower, cars wrapped in colourful textiles in the narrow streets of the old city of Cairo, steering wheels on oily engines mixed with parts of scrapped forklifts: all these are actors in Garmusch’s series Studio Cairo.
