Tilman Wendland (*1969, lives in Berlin) creates from basic, light materials

such as paper, cardboard and PVC ephemeral structures, which are integrated

in existent architectural situations. They provide comments, criticisms or also

caricatures. Normally, his works, which are seldom intended to last, are rendered

completely in white. In spite of the strict reduction of colour and form they reveal

themselves through a playful-ironic treatment of the subject.

For Ideal City - Invisible Cities Wendland developed a room installation,

which enquired into the architectural and city planning shapes and elements

of Le Corbusier, Oskar Hansen and Oscar Niemeyer. The ideal city concepts

of the architects were condensed by Wendland into space-penetrating white

cardboard shelves, sublime and also perishable.
