Martin Sieweke researches on different notions of material-relation and thinking, working on and through iteration, prolongation, repair and reformulations as part of a dialogical interest, considering the very configurations of materials as a capacity to be with.

His research is about off-centering new-ness as the major commodity of artistic endeavor to change the mode of relating through spending time, searching for affections and being in conversation. Hanging out with the leftovers, lingering around with already used materials, repairing, reshaping and speculating about other forms of relating constitutes a viewing direction which establishes across multiple collaborative and individual practices of bag- and accessory making, scenography/costume projects, workshops and performative installations.
