Karl Menzen and Karen Lüderitz met in Berlin in 2018 on the occasion of an artist exchange project between Chile and Germany organized by the artists' group META. A joint exhibition "maleta" in the galery "cleartext" and a subsequent symposium at the Institute for Art and Culture in Kloster Lehnin revealed an artistic affinity in dealing with the "void" and the "in-between" despite the most contradictory materials. To intensify and show this in a joint project spontaneously became a great desire and challenging goal. The Roland Phleps Foundation for Concrete Art with its profile and its "Tandem" program is the ideal "destination".

Hers is an inquiry into the nature of color,
simple and direct. She does not seek to express herself through
lyrical expressionism, but rather through a synthesis that
emerges from her own sensibility (Edward
Shaw, 2012). Layer after layer, the remoteness of
the sublime is suggested: the color of the Patagonian ice, the
humid forest, the Pacific Ocean and the desert of sun and salt.
In this arrangement of pigments in planes and layers, a light
line crosses randomly, freely and decisively, which comes to
intervene as a testimony of what is definitely human; a
primordial gesture that evokes the very origins of all artistic
expression. In her works color is pure, intense, and immense

del Océano Pacífico y del desierto de sol y de sal.

is a steel sculptor and was already a guest in the sculpture hall
of the foundation in 2018 with his solo exhibition "Transformation".
His works are reduced to the essentials and, contrary to the
heaviness of the material, sometimes show dancing lightness.
Corresponding encounters between the supposed inside and the
supposed outside are created.
(Fritz Jacobi, 2012)
The empty space becomes an equal sculptural material. In an
impressive way, he shows how the rational approach of Concrete Art
cannot be too dry, too formalistic, but
is in balance
with the aesthetic approach
(Roland Phleps, 2018).
