In Wiepersdorf, Antje Blumenstein wants to develop a system that bypasses the restrictions imposed by habits of seeing and thinking. A mathematical system, based on three-dimensional parameters, will expand her own spatial imagination. Formally, a structure is to be developed that makes it possible to stabilize the neon glass objects, which are very fragile in their materiality, by means of a metal system in such a way that they can stand freely in space. The construction itself is to become part of the work, without simply doubling the lines of the neon rods.

In Wiepersdorf, Gabler wants to deal with the artifacts of neoliberalism: Does "good" come from "goods"? Or, vice versa, shouldn't "goods" be the derivative of "good"? What is the good? What are our highest goods? Who can't see, hear, or taste the loud and clearly worldly threats? Where is our goodness among all our goods? Neoliberalism works only finitely and only those at its top can profit. Susanne Gabler looks for the "good" in the goods and ask: Which goods actually deserve the predicate good?
