7 Tage, 7 Nächte

Exhibition at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden
The Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden devotes a comprehensive solo exhibition to world-renowned conceptual artist Sarkis (born 1938 in Istanbul, lives and works in Paris), whose work links the social to the conceptual profoundly, calling for the merging of practices and cultures. The exhibition is the product of a year-long exchange with the artist, focusing on art, history, and trauma, and institutions as spaces for reflection, participation and community.
The exhibition has been staged by Sarkis in close collaboration with curator Defne Ayas and Kunsthalle Baden-Baden directors Çağla Ilk and Misal Adnan Yıldız. Curatorial assistance by Sandeep Sodhi.
We would like to thank FRAC Alsace, Mamco Genève, FRAC des Pays de la Loire, Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt and Nathalie Obadia Gallery for their generous loans and support in the realization of the exhibition.

As its title suggests, this exhibition features everything that constitutes Ulrike Ottinger’s artistic practice. This exhibition is entirely dedicated to the imagination of this extraordinary artist and, like a dictionary that defines her languages or an alphabet that deciphers her stories, it turns the pages of her diverse and long-standing oeuvre.
