The artist Erik Steinbrecher has conceived a new installation for the courtyard of KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin – an accessible platform: SINGLE FLAT (2015) adds a third, even bigger cube to the cubes already present in this yard; those nested within each other in the architecture of Café Bravo, designed by Dan Graham. The expansive platform made of wooden panels and scaffold tube allows for a variety of possible uses: It is lower than a table, but higher than a chair, functioning as a forum and venue for KW’s program. Visitors are invited to sit or lie down and hang out. As a retreat as well as a stage, this temporary location alters constantly between an intimate place and one of exhibition, which places its visitors in the center.

SINGLE FLAT will be inaugurated tomorrow, August 5, 2015, from 6–9 pm, with a concert by John Miller, Aura Rosenberg, and Franz Lutz (Dirty Mirrors).
