We got to know the work of Christopher Kline through our collaboration with Conglomerate collective in 2016, of which he is a founding member.

When we were introduced to his personal artistic work, we realised how clearly it reflected many qualities that he made present during our collaboration, a pleasure in working together, a love for the ‘do it yourself’ craft and the sculptural qualities of the ‘non perfectly finished work’, and a pleasure for multidisciplinary, performance and humour.

Next to that, his own work intrigued us for the way he manages to activate so many people of a local community into his projects, how it manages to exalt the joy of amateurism and the way he is capable of turning historically sensitive subject matter into such surprising visual and storyline experiences that keep you fascinated and open to the politically charged content behind.

Since 2014 he has been developing O.K.-The Musical, an ongoing project based on the lore of his hometown, realised in the form of an in-process community theatre musical, exhibitions, videos and publications. Iterations of O.K. have taken place at Tate Liverpool, Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw, La Casa Encendida, Madrid, Arken, Ishøj, DK and KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin and the latest edition will take place in May at 1646.

Christopher Kline (b. 1982, Kinderhook, USA) is a Berlin-based artist and musician who co-runs the project space Kinderhook & Caracas with Sol Calero, and co-produces the artist-run TV Network CONGLOMERATE
