until 01.10. | #3509ARTatBerlin | Sprüth Magers Berlin shows from 2. July 2022 the group exhibition Rust, which takes the American Rust Belt as its theme through the works of the artists Bernd & Hilla Becher, Stephen Shore and LaToya Ruby Frazier.
The focus is on the comprehensive social change that has taken place in this region in the Northeast and Midwest of the USA since the end of the 1970s as a result of the decline of the industries located there.
The group exhibition Rust is looking at the decline of the American Rust Belt through the work of Bernd and Hilla Becher, Stephen Shore and LaToya Ruby Frazier. Their nuanced takes offer complementary views on the industrial Northeast and Midwest since the late 1970s to the present day, against a backdrop of wider societal changes in the face of drastic industrial decline.
Rust brings together three perspectives, that are joined in their desire to share an often-overlooked narrative. Capturing the industrial landscape at various phases of decay, their positions visually intertwine the complex realities of change over time.
Exhibition dates: Saturday, 2. July – Saturday, 27. August 2022 – ATTENTION: extended until Saturday. 1. October 2022To the Gallery
