Museum Villa Stuck
München, Germany

Museum Villa Stuck presents Alice Rekab’s first institutional solo exhibition in Germany. Rekab explores cultural and personal narratives – stories that are told about us and by us. The artist’s Irish/Sierra-Leonian identity serves as a starting point to reflect on realities of life, experiences of growing up, and family histories. What shape does our belonging take? The joys and traumas of our existence are viewed through the prisms of body, family, and nation state.

The exhibition in the Ricochet series shows existing and new work. The latter were created during Rekab’s 2021 AIR-M Residency at the Villa Waldberta and the 2022 Kunstverein München Peripheral Alliances Residency. Exploring mimetic, amateur, and regional methods of cultural production, Rekab develops a hybridized visual language. Their transdisciplinary work spans collage, film, installation, sculpture, and text.

Through their presentation of these works at the Museum Villa Stuck, Rekab creates connections and confrontations between intergenerational experiences of race, place, and belonging, connecting with the sites of their residencies, Franz von Stuck’s home, and its former occupants. These site-specific installations integrate materials and furniture from the respective locations that Rekab encountered during their time in Munich.

  • Gregory Crewdson: Retrospective
    May 29 – Sep 8, 2024
    Wien, Austria

    Gregory Crewdson (*1962, Brooklyn) is one of the world’s most renowned photographers. Since the mid-1980s, Crewdson has been using the backdrop of small American towns and film sets to create, like a director, technically brilliant and colourfully seductive photographs that focus on human isolation and the abysses of society. The enigmatic scenes self-reflexively raise questions about the boundary between fact and fiction but can also be related to socio-political developments. (more…)

  • Helen Cammock: I Will Keep My Soul

    Convening polyphonous voices from past and present, I Will Keep My Soul is an orchestral layering of photography, historical documents, poetry and interviews, all rooted in the social history, geography and community of New Orleans. In this prismatic artist’s book, UK-based artist Helen Cammock traverses the city, rendering her observations and encounters into reverberant texts and percipient photographic images that tender the city’s invisible histories.
