With the exhibition Mona Hatoum, three Berlin institutions present the multifaceted work of Mona Hatoum in the first large-scale survey of her work in Berlin. The three-part exhibition opens in September at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.) (15.9.2022 – 13.11.2022), Georg Kolbe Museum (15.9.2022 – 8.1.2023) and KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art (18.9.2022 – 14.5.2023). The influence of Hatoum’s works on current discourses on body politics and migration, as well as the emergence of new sculptural tendencies in contemporary art will be addressed.
Mona Hatoum is considered one of the most important and influential artists of her generation. Her performances, videos, photographs, sculptures, installations and works on paper deal with issues of displacement, marginalisation, exclusion and state control—themes she examines against the backdrop of both her own biography and current societal developments.
