The exhibition Ephemer by the sculptor Katrin Wegemann took place in autumn 2017 at the Kunstverein Recklinghausen art society and was the reason for the associated publication in June 2017 of the "Sammlung des Flüchtigen: Über das Festhalten des Ephemeren [Refugee Collection: Holding on to the Ephemeral]". Katrin Wegemann is one of the editors alongside Syelle Hase and the art society Kunstverein Recklinghausen. In addition to theoretical discourses on the essence of refugees, the publication by the Kettler publishing house deals intensively with Katrin Wegemann’s work. Texts about collecting art and objects, as well as memoirs describing how recipients perceive existing works, include black-and-white and colour photographs of the sculptor’s work. The funding enabled the creation of prototypes of the objects planned for the exhibition, which can found in the publication’s index of works.
