Judith Hopf: Some End of Things
Mittwoch, 7. Dezember 2011, 19 Uhr, Aula
Judith Hopf will talk about her recent series of works with the title: Some End of Things. Alongside her 'research' concerning Endings, Hopf will concentrate on keywords like: Exhaustion, Emancipation and Entrance in order to develop perspectives beyond the hopefully and finally found Ends.
"...The artist's recent work often returns to the idea of exhaustion. She frames this concept in Beckettian terms, considering the Janus-faced possibilities of speaking exhaustively and, conversely, the point at which meaning itself is exhausted. Are you exhausted because of the endless possibilities or because the possibilities have already been exhausted? Hopf's work suggests unexpected modes of resistance to what she has called 'the tyranny of the same'. …" Sam Thorne , Frieze Foundation, 2011
