Citations and reviews

"Allen diesen einstigen Kuschelbären und Knuddelhasen wird es in den nächsten Wochen im „White Market“ so ergehen, wie es einst den Hirschen, Hasen und Wildschweinen unter den Darmstädter Landgrafen erging. Nur dass sie nicht zu Wildbret verarbeitet oder als Trophäen gesammelt, sondern die abgetrennten Köpfe in einer Wurfbude aufgestellt und am Ende die Plüschbälge zu amorphen Kunstgebilden umgestaltet werden. (…)"

"Ein paar Schritte weiter noch so ein Hingucker: Claudia Kappenberg und Dorothea Seror haben ein paar Hunderte Stofftiere wie zur Jagdstrecke ausgelegt und veranstalten ein Kuscheltiermassaker: "Wir schneiden Tieren unter anderem die Köpfe ab, weil wir Trophäen sammeln, genau so wie hier in diesem Jagdschloss um 1600, 1700 Trophäen von Hirschen gesammelt wurden" – "Frage: Rechnen Sie mit Tränen von Kindern?" – "Nein, nicht von Kindern. Kinder haben selbst diese Lust zu zerstören, eher von den Eltern, die angstvoll denken, ihren Kindern könnte hier etwas Schlimmes gezeigt werden." 
(Haubitz, A; Vogelfrei: Jäger & Sammler, hr2-kultur, 21June 2011)

"Claudia Kappenberg's Upon the Place Beneath. Six movement artists stood gracefully moving their arms, silently at first, until they began to release beads from their hands which poured down on to various resonant objects and created a random interplay of sounds. Everyone seemed gripped - it looked beautiful, sounded interesting, we wondered what it might mean."
