As part of the 200th anniversary exhibition of the Badischer Kunstverein "49 ° - Cultural Production Karlsruhe, open studios" HfG alumna Marleine Chedraoui has literally exhibited her studio and transformed it into a museum under the title Ein Haufen von Spänen ("A pile of shavings").

A museum supervisor awaited the visitors at the entrance to the studio, pointing out that they were not allowed to touch anything or take pictures. The visitors entered the studio through a long, narrow corridor leading to the artist's workspace. There was a pane of glass on the door, which allowed the view into the room, but denied access to it.
