Purple Art

[November 4 2012]

Privacy exhibition at the Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt

Through a consideration of numerous contemporary approaches, Privacy investigates the dwindling private sphere and the publicness of the intimate. Aiming her camera through a rear courtyard window, Merry Alpern captures blurred scenes of hurried sexual encounters; in his romantic video piece Akram Zaatari explores an online chat between two men; and Fiona Tan combines private snapshots from different countries to create large tableaux. The exhibition undertakes memorable excursions to the fragile borders between the self and the other. The exhibition also features works by Dash Snow, Ryan McGinley, Michel Auder, Nan Goldin, Tracey Emin, Ai Weiwei and Marilyn Minter. Curated by Dr. Martina Weinhart, it is on show until Feburary 3rd 2013 at the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, Römerberg 6, 60311, Frankfurt. Photo Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt
