EXHIBITION: gestures of archiving
curated by Nadja Ayoub and Iryna Kurhanska
The exhibition gestures of archiving questions various structures and the artistic gestures of archiving - from everyday diary entries to state archives and their socially relevant meaning. It follows the traces of discarded forms, overwritings, collective memories and shows different aspects of archiving as a cultural practice.
The invited artists:Andrii Dostliev, Olia Fedorova, Thomas Heise, Nikita Kadan, Eduardo Molinari, Isabel Peterhans and Simone Schönett Esther Strauß, Miriam Visaczki and Claire Waffel show in their works different approaches and methods dealing with forms of memory culture, history, politics and territory.
