Artist Nick Mauss (* 1980) has repeatedly turned exhibition-making—the assembly of precisely staged relations—into an art form. He especially conceives the scenography for this show, which brings together and reframes works by contemporary and historical figures, emphasizing aspects of legibility, textility, fragility, and aggression across various media.
