über das sprechen

Opening: Thursday, June 23, 2022, 7 pm

In its lower case, “über das sprechen” points to the double meaning of the words. On the one hand, the exhibition deals with language, addresses the theme of capitalized speech in its various dimensions, in its questions about what is said with speech, what is triggered mentally, or what is concealed with the help of language and its media. The other variant of the exhibition title is understood as an invitation to speak about “that”, which as a demonstrative pronoun is a reference to something that only acquires meaning from the context or the knowledge of the speaker. The audience of the Schwerin exhibition embarks on this search for context when they engage with the theme of speaking in various media.
