Old books become art objects - this is the work of Francois du Plessis, hiding the stories told in them. It's fitting that the author Sylvia Schreiber presents stories from the lives of people who make a difference in the reading on May 3, 2024.

As a conversation partner and advisor to entrepreneurs, she knows how to read the nuances. In this way, she manages to get to the heart of her experiences and the wisdom they contain in dense writing.


In her own life, Sylvia Schreiber, who was born in Hanover in 1957, has acquired a theoretical foundation in German studies, journalism and economics, rounded off by further training as a systemic consultant. Until 2017, she provided advice and hands-on support to medium-sized companies on organization, digitalization and controlling. Since then, she has made her wealth of experience available to entrepreneurs in various conversation formats (


She mastered language passionately, even as a child, later also as a journalist and now as an author of biographical stories - with real experience as material.


On May 3rd she will read from books that have already been published as well as from texts “in progress”. We can be excited.

As part of the exhibition, Laura Sachs and Udo Nöger open a formal dialogue that discusses the antipodes of their painting: surface and depth, simplicity and complexity, shrillness and silence. They enter into a relationship of form and light and invite the viewer to enter the spaces of their work. A dynamic interplay of exploration emerges.



- in the tension between reproducible and unique art-

Walter Benjamin's essay The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction, published in 1935 while he was in exile in Paris, is perhaps best known for its afterword and the thesis that fascism aestheticizes politics (more precisely: war), while communism politicizes art. However, his other ideas, formulated like the program of a manifesto, are still hotly debated in literary, cultural, film and art studies to this day. The current exhibition AURA at Galerie Probst in collaboration with ARTCO Gallery Berlin aims to transport this essay into a contemporary context and explore the tension between art that cannot be reproduced and art that does not exist without its technical reproduction.
