With Whiteface, Kunsthalle Baden-Baden presents a focused solo exhibition by South African artist Candice Breitz. Two video-based installations from the artist’s long-standing oeuvre—Whiteface (2022) and Extra (2011)—are juxtaposed to stimulate conversations around race, privilege and the asymmetrical politics of representation within cultures that have been shaped by white suprematist ideology.

About the exhibition

The archive presentation An Imaginary Audience, part of the exhibition series SYNCH, is based on a comprehensive research for investigating the exhibition history of Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden through performance art. This endeavor includes performativity as an artistic tool and the transition of the audience from a receiver into a user, performer, and participant in the digital age.

About the exhibition

From climate change to drought, isolation politics to recession, armed conflicts to authoritarian regimes, many of our existential questions, planetary problems and global crises can be formulated only in reference to these two terms; nature and state. The investigation of continuity and disobedience, possible forms of transformation of the state and the genealogical relationships between future and past are at the center of this project.
