13 SEP 2017—26 FEB 2018
Opening 15 SEP, 7pm
Conceived for the large exhibition hall of the Berlinische Galerie, Bonvicini's installationamongst other things investigates the term facade and its function. The show runsparallel to the 15th Istanbul Biennale in which the artist is also participating and featureselements from both cities - Berlin and Istanbul.Monica Bonvicini (born 1965, Venice) has been one of the most influential contemporary artistsof the last 20 years. Her video works, installations, drawings and sculptures explore questionscentring around architecture, gender, power and sexuality and touch on social, political andeconomic issues. The institutional viewing space is often the subject of her work. Thus,Bonvicini's site- specific, power- conscious and gendered allusions to the norms of architecturaland artistic modernism quite literally operate on the boundary between artwork and spectator.A catalogue of 104 pages published by Kerber Verlag will accompany the exhibition.The authors are Thomas Köhler and Kate Sutton.The exhibition and catalogue were made possible by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds.
