Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz: The Right to Have Rights

With the solo exhibition "The Right to Have Rights", Neuer Berliner Kunstverein presents a new work by Boudry and Lorenz.

Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Chausseestrasse 128/129

Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz have had a decisive influence on contemporary art discourse with their performance-based films and installations. Their work is usually multidisciplinary thanks to their collaborations with dancers, musicians, choreographs and visual artists.

In the exhibition “The Right to Have Rights”, through the medium of words and of a musical composition (sound design: Rashad Becker), the work of Boudry and Lorenz negotiates the question: Who is seen as “human” and who has access to political rights?

In their room-filling video installation, the artists turn their attention to international law with an excerpt from the 1951 Refugee Convention. This agreement, made between 147 states, guarantees extensive rights for refugees and is still valid today.
