SILKE OTTO-KNAPP: BÜHNENBILDER
Since the mid-1990s, Silke Otto-Knapp (*1970 Osnabrück, †2022 Los Angeles) has developed a unique approach to painting that responds to and reflects on formal and thematic questions of representation and embodiment of performing arts. In Otto-Knapp's final work cycle Versammlung (2022) — developed for the Kunstverein in Hamburg – Otto-Knapp presents histories of acting, dance, and cinema, while focusing on forms of ritualized gathering on stage. Here, Bühnenbilder comes to question the relationship between rehearsal and performance and their relationship to exhibition-making. For the Kunstverein, the work cycle Versammlung will be shown in conjunction with Otto-Knapp's work from the last decade.
