As part of the opening Kapwani Kiwanga and curator Damian Lentini talked about the installation "Plot" at Haus der Kunst. Listen to the talk now with our Podcast.
The seventh edition of the series DER ÖFFENTLICHKEIT – VON DEN FREUNDEN HAUS DER KUNST is dedicated to the Franco-Canadian artist Kapwani Kiwanga.
Kiwanga’s practice traces the pervasive impact of power asymmetries by placing historic narratives in dialogue with contemporary realities, the archive, and tomorrow’s possibilities. Her project "Plot" at Haus der Kunst is conceived of an ever-changing series of artistic interventions and events in three “acts”, staged across the entire run of the installation. These diverse and successive actions will allow for Die Öffentlichkeit to truly open up to the city; posing the question of what it really means to “be public” in the current moment.
The talk between Kapwani Kiwanga and curator Damian Lentini about the installation is now available as a Podcast.
