The German word “Schallplatte” is described in English as the word vinyl record. “Schall” can also mean acoustic noise or echo; “platte” refers to both the disc and can also be understood as a flat surface. The exhibition is titled after the work of artist Karl Hofer who in 1941 created his painting “Mädchen mit Schallplatte”, depicting a girl holding a vinyl record. The work was created at an important moment during World War II, a time when music also took on a different meaning and value. The three artists Tom Früchtl, Catherine Lorrent and Klaus Killisch each present works related to the theme of “sound” or music-making, as well as historical and sculptural references within their own medium.
