‹in situ›, international group exhibition at the Kunsthalle Darmstadt - until January 7th, 2024
November 3rd to January 7th
The international group exhibition ‹in situ› shows contemporary art concerning the crimes of the Nazi dictatorship. The participating artists examine how remembrance work can be done today. To do this, they use various media that are able to create diverse connections between the past and the present. How important the memory of the Gleichschaltung, the book burning and the Shoahand remains still are has recently been shown by the anti-Semitism scandal surrounding Documenta (2022) and the attacks in Halle (2019) and Hanau (2020). ‹in situ› relies on the power of art to update history and thus make it accessible to future generations.
Events as part of the exhibition:
November 3rd at 7:30 p.m.: Artist talk between the artists Leon Kahane and a representative of the Schandwache collective, moderated by Anastasia Tikhomirova.
November 22nd at 7:30 p.m.: Reading of the book “Reconciliation Theater” with the author Max Czollek. Afterwards there will be a conversation between Max Czollek and Marc Grünbaum.
Dec 7th at 7:30 p.m.: Panel discussion initiated by the artist Talya Feldman with her project “WE ARE HERE” in cooperation with the Bundeszentrale für Politische Bildung.
‹in situ› is curated by Miriam Schmidt, Kai Altheim and Jonas Höschl.
