Christian Bold & Dana LorenzVenue:
The joint exhibition by Dana Lorenz and Christian Bold deals with the concept of inclusion on different levels of reception.
Bold's works, which are understood as contemporary history painting, approach the term more through its historical context. Inclosure is associated here with land and capital accumulation by dominant actors, as well as the social unrest and processes of alienation associated with it. In contrast, Lorenz's sculptural installation works and posters refer to Silvia Frederici's (feminist activist and author) conceptual approach: the enclosure and disciplining of the female subject in the wake of patriarchal rationalization in the transition to capitalism. In particular, the subjugation and colonization of the female body is at the center of Lorenz's interest.
For both artists, inclusion thus becomes a conceptual vessel that gives expression to the torn nature of subcultural movements between the need for inclusion and the fear of assimilation and enclosure. At the same time, it means thinking about the dimension of the collective process, getting involved and making room for the respective other position.
Opening: 7:00 pm
