KW Production Series 2020: Onyeka Igwe and Lin+Lam
For its third and final year of commissioning, KW Production Series will work with London-based artist and researcher Onyeka Igwe, who explores the physical body and geographical place as sites of cultural and political meaning; and New York-based collaborative duo Lin+Lam––Lana Lin and H. Lan Thao Lam––who draw on their backgrounds in architecture, photography, sculpture, installation and time-based media to grapple with incidents informed by past political narratives. Already in development, these two new moving image works will be premiered online in Winter 2020.
Organised in collaboration with the Julia Stoschek Collection and OUTSET Germany_Switzerland, KW Production Series is inspired by KW’s founding principles as a place of production, critical exchange, and thoughtful collaboration. This series seeks to identify and serve artists that are at a pivotal moment in their work and career—those who will benefit not only from the financial support and institutional visibility this opportunity provides, but also those who will be able to use the KW Production Series to significantly contribute towards the depth and rigor of their moving image practice. Previous productions include: Andrea Büttner, What is so terrible about craft? / Die Produkte der menschlichen Hand, 2019; Rachel O’Reilly, INFRACTIONS, 2019; Jamie Crewe, Pastoral Drama, 2018; and Beatrice Gibson, I Hope I’m Loud When I’m Dead, 2018.
