Beate Ermacora, Lotte Dinse & Jürgen Tabor (Eds.)
The foreign in the familiar, the familiar in the foreign—a poignant document of the international group exhibition is concerned with the phenomenon of the alien within one’s own culture and sphere of experience. This play on the foreign inspires many artists to confront the unfamiliar and to challenge the rules and codes of conduct within different social groups as well as research the historic transformation of public space. The resulting works, which uncover a panoramic complexity of identities and approaches, trace out aspects of society that are hidden and suppressed, raising questions about accepted social, cultural and political principles and interactions. Featured are works by 14 artists, including Martin Brand, Mark Dion, Coco Fusco, Sofia Hultén, Peter Piller, Gillian Wearing and Tobias Zielony. Essays by exhibition curators Lotte Dinse and Jürgen Tabor, along with Julia Brennacher, Andrea Brockmann, Beate Ermacora and others.
