Tell it to the Stones. The Work of Danièle Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub

In their almost 50 years of collaboration, Danièle Huillet (1936–2006) and Jean-Marie Staub (b. 1933) created one of the most influential and yet controversial oeuvres of the modern cinema, always engaging with pre-existing material, often in conflict with it: texts by Höderlin, Kafka, Brecht, Pavese, or Malraux, the music of Bach and Schoenberg, or Cézanne’s paintings. An oeuvre that has sometimes been misunderstood as hermetic today proves to be open, playful, and radically contemporary. The exhibition is dedicated to Straub/Huillet’s way of working and establishes links to current artistic positions. Three conferences will explore the work from the present, a retrospective will begin in October. The curators are Annett Busch and Tobias Hering. The project is funded by Hauptstadtkulturfonds
