Ayşe Erkmen & Mona Hatoum: Displacements

Ayşe Erkmen & Mona Hatoum: Displacements
Library Shelf Location 18.HATO
Publication Date 2017

The exhibition “Displacements/ Entortungen” at Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig initiates a dialogue between the oeuvre of the two internationally renowned artists Ayşe Erkmen (Istanbul) and Mona Hatoum (Beirut) in an unprecedented joint exhibition. 

Both Erkmen’s and Hatoum’s artistic vantage point is their reflection about the specifics of a place, and the connected questions of politics and society. 

Both artists integrate historical contexts of place in their art, and each finds unique processes of reflection about personal as well as global issues. The artistic common ground of Erkmen and Hatoum can be found in the artists’ reinvention of familiar means of expression: through giving new connotations to standard material, their oeuvre adopts larger realms of interpretive meaning. The catalogue accompanies the exhibition of the same name.
