Curated by Kathrin Becker, the exhibition features a new work by Candice Breitz (b. 1972 in Johannesburg, lives in Berlin) commissioned by the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. The work receives its world premiere in this solo exhibition and remains in the collection of the n.b.k. Video-Forum.
In her practice, the artist often analyses the dynamics of identity formation via multi-channel video installations which are either shot fresh or composed from existing images, video clips and material drawn from mainstream media. Across her oeuvre, Breitz addresses the entanglement of personal and political struggles, as these are played out in the public sphere.
