In the second part of the exhibition “Generations. Female artists in dialogue” staged in the former air shelter in Haus der Kunst, the focus is on the body and the exploration of its limits, as well as the examination of social concepts of sexuality, gender and identity in moving images.
Since its beginnings, video art has been used as a medium for self-reflection and the documentation of performances. On display are videos, films and installations by artists from the 1960s to the present day. The scope ranges from the playful-sensual exploration of intimate areas of the body by Pipilotti Rist and the deconstruction of the female body in the stop-motion films with Nathalie Djurberg’s clay figures, to the documentation of socio-political performances by Mona Hatoum, in which the Lebanese artist literally turns the inside out.
