Monica Bonvicini and Tom Burr at Lenbachhaus Kunstbau, Munich

June 15, 2009

Lenbachhaus Kunstbau presents an exhibition with works by Monica Bonvicini and Tom Burr. Monica Bonvicini (*1965 in Venice, lives in Berlin) and Tom Burr (*1963 in New Haven, Connecticut, lives in New York) share an interest in the functional purposes of social spaces and their psychological, social and gender-specific conventions. This mutual interest manifests itself in very different types of photographs, drawings, sculptures and installations. But common to both oeuvres is the question of the dynamics of power reflected in architecture, behaviour and action. Enthusiasm for the almost libidinous quality of surfaces and materials is a further bond between Monica Bonvicini and Tom Burr’s artistic output. The juxtaposition of their works brings out both the similarities and the contrasts between their aesthetic strategies.
Introduction by the curator of the exhibition and co-director of Lenbachhaus Kunstbau, Matthias Mhling. Video by Grsoy Dogtas.
The exhibition is presented in cooperation with the Kunstmuseum Basel, Museum fr Gegenwartskunst, Switzerland
