Repairing the City
Edith-Russ-Haus, Oldenburg, Germany
From the 7th of may to the 16th of august, the Edith-Russ-Haus for media art will feature the dual exhibition of Nevin Aladağ and Leopold Kessler : “Repairing the City”. In this exhibition questions of public and private space are negotiated. The artists work with performative media which intervene in the fabric of society, exposing visible and invisible limitations in our society.
The ironic title “Repairing the City” aims to describe the city as a fragile construct, the functions of which command constant surveillance, questioning and care to keep it from becoming the opposite of what a city should be: a community of citizens. This exhibition will feature not only a comprehensive overview of past works by Aladağ and Kessler in reference to public space, but will also stage new interventions in the cityspace of Oldenburg.
