Samara Sallam, Four and a Half Hours, 2015 (still)
The Futureless Memory
Sep 19 – Nov 22, 2020
Kunsthaus Hamburg
Hamburg, Germany

This exhibition presented by Kunsthaus Hamburg traces the paths and detours of lives, art works, texts and instruments, revealing disjunctions as much as it highlights unexpected links.

The Futureless Memory compiles contemporary artistic works and historical documents that were created in or reflecting on exile. From a global perspective, the exhibition explores the role of belonging and how the concept can be reconsidered from a contemporary point of view. Diverse cultural, political and historical backgrounds are juxtaposed to show that, although the experience of exile manifests in decidedly individual ways, the question of belonging cannot be defined only subjectively: it describes a relational co-dependency.

Artists Francis Alÿs, Eda Aslan & Dilşad Aladağ, Khaled Barakeh, Hera Büyüktaşçıyan, Ergin Çavuşoğlu, Nadia Christidi, Balca Ergener, Michaela Melián, Judith Raum, Samara Sallam, Dilek Winchester, and others.

Exhibition concept conceived by artist Dilek Winchester, curated by Katja Schroeder
