“Do I always have to say something?” Artist collective D665 house the ritual with 89 Vorhänge + Preshowritual

, Tuesday

Curated by Hendrike Nagel, the artist collective D665 (Maria Anisimowa, Magali Laurent, Emilia Neumann, Lutz Pillong, Sven Prothmann, Dennis Siering and Malte Zenses) explore circular narratives across two spaces. A show that puts the lens back onto itself, the work seeks to stage a moment, conserve it and ultimately ask “do I always have to say something?”

The press release ruminates on the process of showing and performing, where spectator and visitor are not separated and the space/stage holds as much importance as the ritual it houses, leaving us with the question, “What happens if the curtain itself finds its own spectacular character?”**
