Monica Bonvicini

Conceived for the large exhibition hall of the Berlinische Galerie, Bonvicini's installation amongst other things investigates the term facade and its function. The show runs parallel to the 15th Istanbul Biennale in which the artist is also participating and features elements from both cities - Berlin and Istanbul.

Monica Bonvicini (born 1965, Venice) has been one of the most influential contemporary artists of the last 20 years. Her video works, installations, drawings and sculptures explore questions centring around architecture, gender, power and sexuality and touch on social, political and economic issues. The institutional viewing space is often the subject of her work. Thus, Bonvicini's site-specific, power-conscious and gendered allusions to the norms of architectural and artistic modernism quite literally operate on the boundary between artwork and spectator.

A catalogue of 104 pages published by Kerber Verlag will accompany the exhibition.
The authors are Thomas Köhler and Kate Sutton.

We are pleased to invite you and your friends to the opening of the exhibition during Berlin Art Week 2017 on September 15.
