Christin Kaiser’s (*1984 in Erfurt, Germany, lives and works in Berlin, Germany) artistic practice has derived from photography. Her edition Old Hat Living 5 shows a fictive architecture model referring to modernist modes of construction and simultaneously taking up the form and format of a hat. As a status symbol, the hat went out of fashion in the 1950s, and today the idiomatic expression “old hat” means outdated ways of thinking or habits. In her edition created exclusively for the Kunstverein in Hamburg, Kaiser thus confronts a sign of social prestige with the social utopias of modernism, and lets different concepts of society, identity and representation clash with each other.
