ECHT? based on a true story

ECHT? based on a true story

February 12, 2011 - March 27, 2011

Ruti Sela & Maayan Amir, Uli Knörzer, Ahmet Ögüt, Slavs and Tatars, Guido van der Werve, Ming Wong

“ECHT?” is the first exhibition curated by the new artistic director of Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Adnan Yıldız. It presents instances of artistic research influenced by the perception of fictionalised reality and investigates how self-reflexivity operates in artistic production. An artist talk with Ming Wong, a workshop with Ruti Sela & Maayan Amir and two floors of installations connected via a poster link by Slavs and Tatars to the city centre turn the exhibition into a stage for questioning new forms of artistic reality and critical imagination.

A poster installation by Slavs and Tatars can be seen during the exhibition at Kulturplatz, Klett-Passage of Hauptbahnhof Stuttgart.
