Opening Friday, September 24th, 6pm – 10pm

"Ile aye, moya, là, ndokh…harmonic conversations…mm" calls to the elements—earth, wind, fire, and water—summoned in various languages from West and Southern Africa, and features new works spanning video, sculpture, installation, and animation. In the words of Bopape:  “This exhibition pays homage to those who were taken, those who struggled, those who fled, and those who still seek sanctuary in the liminal spaces between captivity and an illegal freedom.”

In the “Shortlist” exhibition at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin the nominated artists address topics such as movement and migration, belonging and alienation, self-perception and external perceptions of the self, shifting logics of public and private space, as well as the potential of sound and music to act as a social force. The exhibition shows both new and earlier works.

LAWRENCE ABU HAMDAN
The Witness-Machine Complex
Kunstverein Nürnberg, Germany
September 16 – November 14, 2021  

Opening: Wednesday, September 15th, 3 pm – 9 pm  

The Witness-Machine Complex examines the role of translators and the electronic acoustic infrastructure deployed during the Nuremberg trials in 1945/6, which set a precedent for all further international trials. The newly developed electronic audio technology enabled the simultaneous translation of the trial proceedings into Russian, French, German, and English. Abu Hamdan’s scenography at the Kunstverein invokes the infrastructure of the Nuremberg trials to historicise the now inextricable relation between testimony and the technologies by which it is disseminated and distorted.
