In physics, the term “superposition” refers to the convergence or overlay of similar values of two different phenomena. For example, two opposing wavelengths, traveling along the same line, converge in the middle, “superpose,” or overlap, and continue on their course undisturbed. It is with this principle in mind that artists Marcel Bühler, Jens Hanke, Cornelia Renz, Peter Ruehle and Torsten Ruehle present their individual perspectives of contemporary art. Although different in form and content, the individual pieces share a commonality that is revealed when their works are presented together. What emerges is a type of “positive interference,” whereby each individual artist’s position is supported by that of the others.
