Gregor Schneider began his Haus u r (House u r) project in 1985. The artist has converted the house where he was born in Rheydt, near Cologne, into the axis of his artistic production and field of experimentation. Schneider remodels its various spaces with walls, dead-end corridors, false ceilings, blind windows, etc., removing the rooms’ original functions and constantly reinventing spaces by means of which he creates new circulations. Schneider’s work imagines the physical transposition of places found in the literary imagination of Franz Kafka or Jorge Luis Borges: a great three-dimensional trompe-l’œil which invalidates the normal logic of space and creates a climate of mystery and tension.
