touche—touche French/German

Overview

Carolin Gieszner and Théo Demans work and live together as the duo touche—touche. They developed a hybrid creation process by placing their work in the scenographic realm as much as the curatorial practice and that of functional installations. Moving from the museum to the theatre world, designing night clubs or a recording studio to immersive cinema rooms and galleries they are implementing their practice through a collaborative journey. Their work has been exhibited in institution such as the Haus Der Kunst, Munich, the Dutch Pavilion of the 56th Venice Biennale, the National Theatre of Mannheim, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, and Wiels Museum, Brussels.
