Product Description

The exhibition “Letters from a foreign mind” has been shaped by both the internal and external changes EKKM has undergone in the past year and a half, as well as contemplating on what is valued in our society and themes like scarcity, neglect and care. What is remembered, what is forgotten and what gets written into art history? ● The building of EKKM has seen countless repairs and spatial renovations during its lifetime but is nevertheless tired and slowly crumbling. The physical and symbolic cracks are the subject matter and the habitat for artistic ideas, for visitors’ memories, its employees’ proposals, an abundance of dust and material legacy that has been left behind. ● This is an exhibition on growth. Growing up, growing larger, growing anew. Change – distant and inviting – gently glows from afar but with enough focus and patience, it will begin shaping itself into something more familiar and become slightly clearer.
