Exhibition: Class Issues – Art production in and out of precarityFriday, 25 November 2022 — Monday, 09 January 2023
Open: See announcement*
Organized by: neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst
The job of being an artist is characterized by extreme class differences. Poverty and social background are usually either not mentioned or fetishized–or not mentioned at all. The lived reality of artists is defined by less glamourous, non-public sides of the art business—by precarious conditions of production and financial dependency.
The exhibition project examines these complex interrelationships and the often resulting contradictions: both in the choice of works on show and in the accompanying program of discursive events.
The project is a cooperation with the Berlinische Galerie, where the exhibition will be realized.
