Accompanying the exhibitions Inevitable Distances by artist Renée Green and Understudies: I, Myself Will Exhibit Nothing, several focus tours offer the opportunity to approach the exhibition by means of in-depth insights, different accesses and voids. For these occasions, art mediators Barbara Campaner, Jeanne-Ange Wagne and Raoul Zoellner invite conversation partners for a joint exchange.

 

Renée Green: Focus Tour

17 November 21, 5 pm

Jeanne-Ange Wagne in conversation with Billy Fowo

 

What happens when a focus tour becomes a scavenger hunt for hints and clues? Can exhibitions be navigated like a parcours? In this context, imperial concepts of “adventure” and “discovery” can be critically negotiated, decolonised, and developed in dialogue with Renée Green’s artworks; while ideas of escape and resistance might also be addressed and taken into account alongside the positions of formerly enslaved people whose stories are yet to be written and read.
