The artist Kapwani Kiwanga and the curator of the exhibition Damian Lentini talk about the construction and concept of the installation "Plot" in Haus der Kunst.
In her work, Kapwani Kiwanga (b. 1978 in Hamilton, Canada; lives and works in Paris) allows historical narratives to enter into dialogue with contemporary realities, the archive, and tomorrow’s possibilities. Her project 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 actions open the installation up to the city; posing the question of what it really means to “be public” in the current moment.
