LISA OPPENHEIM AT THE GUGGENHEIM BERLIN
Lisa Oppenheim will be included in the upcoming installment of the Guggenheim Museum's Found in Translation, at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin. The exhibition was previously on view at the Guggenheim in New York.
"In our globalized world, with political, economic, and social issues intertwined across national boundaries, translation has become a fundamental tool, both linguistically and more figuratively, in making sense of reality. Taking this concept as a model and a metaphor, Found in Translation brings together recent works that investigate the ways cultural difference is negotiated through written or spoken text. Through videos, installations, photography, and other media the artists in this exhibition explore intersections of language, politics, history, and fantasy, critically commenting on the past while producing richly imagined possibilities for the present."
The other artists included in the exhibition are Siemon Allen, Alejandro Cesarco, Patty Chang, Keren Cytter, Brendan Fernandes, Sharon Hayes, Matt Keegan, and O Zhang.
