Susanne Gabler – Gebrauchsumleitung, 2016

Chandelier made of PET bottles

Many of our daily objects always follow the same way: production, consumption, use and disposal. Since the responsi-bility for the waste does not end with throwing it away, we are faced with the following questions: what would we do if we would not be able to throw anything away? It is possible to use objects several times and in different ways? What would happen if we would take for instance a PET bottle after using it and reuse it? What could be created? Something useful? Art? Furniture?

The artist experiments in her workshops and also in her own artistic work about light. Within these alternatives design processes, she develops – detours of use – ideas, how sustainable cycle-thinking and positive shaping of the environment can illuminate.

Susanne Gabler (*1978 in Stralsund, Germany) lives and works in Wismar, Germany.






Dear partners, supporters, friends and lovers,

due to the COVID-19 Virus our little ETF! office in Berlin remains closed and we are working from home.

As many fellow artists, creatives and freelancers this Corona crisis has hit us hard.
We had hoped to send out a newsletter this spring informing you all about our 19th venue in Lisbon, which was supposed to open in Carpintarias São Lázaro on the 19th of June 2020.
Now, with all the cancellations and the shut down of cultural life we hope to postpone and for EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW! to still be part of the program of Lisboa Green Capital 2020.
We will keep you posted.

Keep safe.
