Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin is showing the special presentation Self Portrait as clone of Jeanne D’Arc by the artist Bunny Rogers from 25 October 2020.

On the occasion of the donation by private sponsors* as a great thank you to Udo Kittelmann, Director of the Nationalgalerie, who is retiring from his post at the end of October 2020, Hamburger Bahnhof is presenting the installation “Self Portrait as clone of Jeanne D’Arc” by Bunny Rogers in a special presentation. The central work of the US-American artist reflects the complexity of youthful femininity, the fear, intensity and narcissism associated with it by means of personal and pop cultural references.

In her works, Bunny Rogers (*1990 in Houston, Texas) plays with ideas of identity and addresses sensitivity and vulnerability, friendship and outsiderhood. She often inspires characters from television series, video games and the Internet. In her fifteen-part, large-format cycle “Self Portrait as clone of Jeanne D’Arc” (2019), Rogers adapts the character Joan of Arc from the animated series “Clone High”, in which a school is populated by clones of historical figures. As Joan of Arc’s alter ego, the artist presents herself in these images in various situations with references to personal everyday life as well as popular culture, transforming the exhibition space into an intimate mood stage.
