The publication Dinge und Dialoge explores the relationship between the material character of things and the physical existence of the observer. The individual contributions in the publication as well as in the exhibition with the same title, that was realized at Scriptings Berlin from December 2015 until January 2016, raise questions about the particular, unique standpoint from which we can speak and perceive. The artists and writers examine the possibilities of seeing differences in objects, recognizing an object as something distinct and our capacity of seeing and comprehending. The publication traces the proposition that where everyday objects and art objects concur, due to their similarities and differences, their status becomes productive.
