Two exhibitions at Galerie Stadtpark with François Morellet and Manuel Knapp and with Jessica Stockholder, David Hanvald, and Priscila Fernandes continue the line of the earlier program of curatorial juxtapositions of current, contemporary positions with establishes ones (earlier iterations included Fred Sandback, Franz Erhard Walther, and Bill Bollinger). The novelty of this catalog and the exhibitions from 2014 to 2017 that it presents is that it includes the solo exhibitions of contemporary, already canonized artists such as Dóra Maurer and Maria Lai, which deliberately exclusively focus on early works in the spirit of a snapshot in time. The clearly outlined concept of Reciprocity - and this renders the title programmatic - endows these works with a certain measure of contextuality and rigor, qualities that were often sorely missed in this year’s exhibitions in Kassel and Venice.
