VALIE EXPORT. Fragments of a Touch

To mark the 80th birthday of VALIE EXPORT (*1940, Linz, Austria), the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden is proud to present a comprehensive solo exhibition of the works by the exceptional Austrian artist in July 2020 under the title “Fragments of a Touch”. The exhibition will focus on installations and groups of works created over the last 20-30 years that highlight a special moment in the artist’s oeuvre: touch. Whereby touch refers not only to the physical, but also to the media-reflective level. In this sense, it functions as a determination of the border or even the transition between realities, between image and space, matter and emptiness, between body and environment. This pointing out and crossing of boundaries can be found in her work in a wide variety of media – both in room-sized installations and in her filmic works. The exhibition pays special attention to this connection and presents not only large-scale installations but also a selection of VALIE’s cinematic work, which is presented in a special cinematic space.

The exhibition is curated by Hendrik Bündge and Luisa Heese.

A catalogue accompanies VALIE EXPORT’S exhibition.
